Small crystals of celestine are the matrix for a doubly terminated, lustrous and translucent, colorless, celestine crystal - NEARLY 5 cm across. This is a large crystal, and incredibly well-displayed for the locale where the species is actually quite rare. In fact, I have not seen the like, from Naica. This kind of thing fits very well with Dick Heck's goal of trying to get the diversity of Mexico in his collection without sacrificing an aesthetic sense
