A tabular gypsum crystal, whose colorless, water clarity rightfully deserves the 'selenite' varietal name. An off form for the locality, as most Willow Creek gypsum crystals are simple rhombohedra. Shows an X-pattern fluorescence under both longwave and shortwave UV. Excellent condition, especially considering that gypsum is rather soft (Mohs hardness 2) and easily cleaved.
