A very strange piece! Highly etched crystals of lustrous and translucent, sky blue celestine to 7 cm are emplaced on a cherty matrix. Most of the crystals still exhibit their original sharp terminations as remnant caps on etched stalks. I have never seen a celestite like this. As well, it is big, blue, and attractive.
