Celestine, Calcite
Clay Center, Ottawa Co., Ohio, USA
Small Cabinet, 7.8 x 2.4 x 1.0 cm
A PRISTINE Clay Center celestine, with an unusually thin tabular form that allows light through and creates uncommon transparency for these. These two tightly-intergrown crystals rise and terminate side-by-side. Two light amber calcites decorate one side, an unusual bonus for this beautiful mini of an American classic. The camera did not pick up the subtle grey-blue color of the Celestine, nor the light amber of the calcites - but it is there.
