Selenite `Daisy bed Gypsum`

Eden Valley,  Cumbria, England


The Eden Valley gypsum (selenite) mines produced this interesting form of gypsum with stellate groups of crystals formed around seeding points creating attractive flower like  patterns - 'Daisy Bed' gypsum. 
This nodular specimen has an unusually large 45mm diameter 'flower' . The mines around Long Marton in the Eden valley that produced this type of selenite are long closed and specimens with this unusual form are quite rare now.
