This incredible sphere of Gypsum serves as a host for multiple golden yellow blades of Gypsum that appear to be exploding from the interior of the ball. The contrast in color, texture and transparency between the opaque brown sphere and the bright golden blades piercing it has a startling effect on the viewer. One of the blades has been repaired (as seen in the image below). This piece glows fluorescent under UV light! A sculptural piece like this one reminds that nature is the master creator. It weighs just over 1lbs and measures approximately 5x3x4"
Gypsum is known to promote rest and relaxation. It also can help the user create boundaries and set priorities that will aid in their rest and relaxation. Gypsum can help the holder overcome old habits and is thought to intensify dreams.
To clean/cleanse, place near a piece of Quartz. Do not treat with water.
This specimen is from the Red River Floodway in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
