Wessels Mine, Kalahari, South Africa
Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 4.3 x 3.1 cm
This matrix specimen features a plate of angular, blunt-headed crystals, to 1.6 cm across, of glassy crystals. The color is a translucent pastel, light sky-blue. The style is uniquely Wessels Mine...classic in appearance, just an order of magnitude BIGGER than anything we have previously seen from here. Formerly this locality produced "locality pieces" of celestine. This is the first pocket I have seen that really competes for attention more globally. The color, luster and form are both aesthetic and outstanding!
