SCIENTIFIC: Selenite gypsum crystal is a calcium sulfate hydrate mineral that is found in a number of crystalline forms; such as single monoclinic trapezoids, twinned or “fishtail” crystals, fibrous satin spar, radiating clusters and rosette-shaped crystals. Selenite gypsum is formed in clay beds and around hot springs by the evaporation of ocean brine along with minerals like anhydrite and halite. Selenite does not dissolve readily so it is one of the first minerals to separate from evaporating sea water. Selenite is named for the Greek word for “the moon.” Selenite’s hardness is rated at 2 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness. Selenite’s transparency ranges from transparent to translucent with a glassy to pearly luster. Selenite comes in a variety of different colors – from colorless to white, yellow, brown, green, blue and pink. Selenite is readily found throughout the world – in Canada, Australia, Spain, France, Italy, England, Russia, Austria, Greece, Poland, Germany and in the USA – New Mexico. The “Cave of Swords” located in Naica, Chihauhua, Mexico is the location of an amazing deposit of Selenite gypsum crystals.
