A rare association for this district: Nestled on top of the fluorite crystals is an 8 cm long cluster of lustrous and translucent, sky blue celestine crystals, with individuals reaching 4 mm in length. The fluorite crystals are occasionally covered by splendent, brassy yellow chalcopyrite crystals, to 1 mm across. The lustrous and translucent, intergrown fluorite crystals, to 3.3 cm across, have a fairly uniform lavender color. Ex. Ross Lillie collection and RCL # 0940.
