Crystal Ridge

Crystal Ridge
Selenite
9″  x 9″  x 5″

Selenite is a crystalised form of gypsum. Named after the Greek goddess Selene, the goddess of the moon.  It is a challenging stone to carve as it is a very soft stone which breaks easily along the striations.  The beauty of the finished stone is worth the challenge.

Crystal Ridge was entered into the Arteast show Mosaic 2018 where it won the Award of Excellence.
