Sakoany (Sankoany) deposit, Katsepy Commune, Mitsinjo District, Boeny Region, Mahajanga (Majunga) Province, Madagascar
Cabinet, 12.0 x 8.3 x 6.5 cm
Sakoany celestines are considered to be amongst the finest in the world and this piece is highly representative of the species and locality. A 4.3 x 3.3 cm, gemmy and lustrous, light steel-blue celestine crystal with a classic chisel termination dominates this fine cabinet specimen. The very vuggy, 3-dimension matrix is totally lined with smaller celestine crystals and the see-through "cave" hidden behind the large celestine is a very interesting accent. Classic Sakoany material.
