Selenite Skyscraper Tower
100% Natural Moroccan Selenite
"Selenite" is the crystallized form of the soft mineral Gypsum. In antiquity, it was believed selenite waxed and waned with the cycles of the Moon inspiring it's name which stems from the Latin word selenites, meaning "moon stone".
It is often silky and waxy to the touch and contains natural veining and translucency, allowing light to illuminate it's unique features. Selenite is soft, being only a 2 on the Mohs scale, and water soluble so it is important to handle it delicately and keep it away from liquid.
Please note: Selenite is a brittle mineral and will naturally degrade over time and with exposure to heat or moisture. Selenite can also naturally contain inclusions of other minerals which can lead to red, brown, or even blue coloring in places, as well as natural internal cleaving. These inclusions and cleaving do not affect selenite structurally in any way and are purely cosmetic.
Measures at approximately 4" tall. Measurements are average, please allow for slight variations in size.
