Following Labradorite being October's Mineral of the Month, we have received a giant lot of stunning Purple Labradorite. Freeforms, palm stones, and gorgeous statement pieces full of purple labradorescence.
We also received a very limited supply of gorgeous Gel Amazonite. These pieces are breathtaking! We encourage all to come into the store to see them as photos do not do them justice.
By popular demand we have a plethora of new carvings in a multitude of materials. Animal carvings,
towers, hearts, and more have all his the shelves with even more filtering to the sales floor as they are received into inventory.
November Mineral of the Month - Selenite
Selenite is a variety of the gypsum mineral. It also comes in varieties known as desert rose, satin spar and gypsum flower. Selenite is formed from calcium sulfate dihydrate and is a monoclinic crystal. It comes in pale shades of pearly white with a clay like texture.
Selenite typically forms in evaporite environments when saline water evaporates, leaving behind gypsum deposits. It can also form as a secondary mineral through the hydration of other calcium-bearing minerals or in hydrothermal veins associated with volcanic activity.
