A substantial portion of the surface of this partial Selenite crystal has been cleaved, but this cleavage does not necessarily detract from its appearance. There are a few areas of noticeable damage besides the cleavage, but these are relatively minor. Its visible monoclinic form is excellent, and two large faces in particular are exceptionally clean, showing a dull pearly, almost silky luster. The Selenite is colorless, transparent, and very clear- only a few internal fractures and iridescent cleavage-oriented internal flaws are visible within. There is a smattering of a dark red-brown host rock present, but this looks more like a thin bit of crust.
