Orange Selenite Sphere 2"

Stone: Selenite
Size: 2"

This Selenite sphere gets its orange tone from the presence of iron while the Selenite is forming.

Selenite, satin spar, desert rose, and gypsum flower are four varieties of the mineral gypsum; all four varieties show obvious crystalline structure. The four "crystalline" varieties of gypsum are sometimes grouped together and called selenite. Selenite contains no significant selenium; the similarity of names comes from both substances being named from the Ancient Greek word for the moon.  Selenite is rated at a 2 on the Mohs scale for hardness.  Selenite is thought to calm irritation and hyperactivity, as well as protect against loss of control.
