Description

A large (for the location) sharp, transparent, fat selenite "diamond" with excellent hourglass fluorescence. 

These selenites are dug out of glacial clay by cutting out blocks and then ripping them apart by hand. Since you are digging blind the shovel does lots of damage resulting in lots of discards.
