Comment: Uncommon on the market - a plate of Austrian selenite twins, to 5 cm (but most more like 3 cm). The crystals are translucent, with a brown/tan color reminiscent of certain Bad Ems pyromorphites. The specimen is in FINE condition, despite the fragility of selenite crystals.

Minerals: Gypsum (CaSO4 2(H2O)) Selenite
