Satin Spar Selenite Tea Light Candle Holders

$24

Color

Tea light holders will measure approximately 3-4 inches in diameter and approximately 3-4 inches tall, and will weigh 2-5 pounds.

Each of our selenite tea light holders is cut from a single large selenite crystal.  Choice of natural white or natural peach.  The shapes and sizes of the candle holders will vary  slightly as all crystals are unique.

Gypsum has several variety names that are widely used in the mineral trade. "Selenite" is the colorless and transparent or translucent variety that shows a pearl like luster and has been described as having a moon like glow.  The word selenite comes from the Greek for Moon and means moon rock.  Another variety is a compact fibrous aggregate called "satin spar selenite."  This variety has a very satin like look that gives a play of light up and down the fibrous crystals.

Fossil Nautiloids

These squid-like mollusks were abundant in Paleozoic seas. Early nautiloids had straight, conical shells that were sealed off by internal walls as the animal grew bigger. Most nautiloids were swimming predators that used short tentacles to seize their prey.  The Fossil Nautiloids shown here are in a black limestone matrix and have been polished.  Slight color and pattern variations are to be expected because these are natural products and no two are alike.

 Banded Onyx

Banded Onyx is formed when hydro-thermal vents alter the surrounding limestone formations. The hot underground water associated with hydrothermal activity dissolves the calcium carbonate in the limestone.  As the water cools, the calcium carbonate is precipitated as onyx.  The banding results from continuous sequential deposition of the carbonate minerals. Different colors are caused by trace amounts of iron in its oxidized (red and brown) and reduced (green) forms. Onyx, at one time, was more precious than gold, silver, or sapphire Onyx is also the anniversary gemstone for the  7th year of marriage. Our beautiful onyx is from the Baluchistan Province in western Pakistan. Skilled artisans turn solid stone blocks on lathes to create beautiful bowls, vases and plates.  Onyx is soft with a hardness of 3 to 4on the Mohs hardness scale.  Use care to protect the polished surface.  Acidic food and wine will dull the surface of the stone items.  No dishwasher or microwave, please.  Slight color and pattern variations are to be expected because these are natural products and no two are alike.
