Selenite gemstone tea light in its natural, well known white colouration, selenite is a variation of the mineral gypsum, a salt mineral which forms with minute needle like crystals which are quite fragile on their own, but robust when together. The crystals all grow in the same direction, which causes a satin like appearance when viewed from certain angles of light. For this reason, the gemstone is also referred to as satin spar. A beautiful piece, it measures 10 cm in diameter and is approximately 9 cm high, a hole has been drilled in to the centre to allow a small tea light candle to be placed inside. Once lit, an orange glow will be emitted, making for a nice tone to be set, where ever it is placed in your home. The tea light as a whole is natural, it has a flat cut base to allow it to stand steady on any flat surface, the sides and top are natural and unpolished.
