Sklodowskite on Selenite (Ref: AX-10-603)

Animas Mine, Francisco Portillo, West Camp, Santa Eulalia Mining Distric, Chihuahua, Mexico
77mm x 49mm x 41mm
minID: DV4-WTT
An older Mexican Sklodowskite on a very attractive matrix, two habits of Selenite crystals. The Selenites are both elongated transparent bladed prisms and the classic "rams-horn" form. The bright yellow Sklodowskite is scattered in several spots in acicular crystals in radiating sprays. Intensely fluorescent, under UV it is clear that there is a lot included inside the clear gypsum so most of the piece glows a brilliant green. Looks great in the daylight too. This specie is usually seen as Micro-mounts, and these crystals are also tiny sprays but because of the setting and size, this is a displayable Sklodowskite; the best I have seen from Mexico and as good as can be found worldwide.
