A stellar Celestine with an attractive light blue color, great form, and superb luster. Both crystals are elongated rhombic prisms, with the largest 2.5 cm crystal having an excellent ridged termination. The smaller crystal is attached at a very attractive angle and there is even some deep purple fluorite attached. Because the color is so incredibly uniform, this specimen was a bear to photograph. Trust me, though, it is one of the best Celestines I have seen from this famous locality, size aside.
