Mineral Specimen #2484    Celestine

Maybee, Monroe Co., Michigan, USA

Collected in the 1960s

For the most part, this specimen is covered on all sides with Celestine crystals with just a bit of Limestone showing in places, primarily at the point of attachment. The color is light blue to clear with a bit of a gray from the underlying limestone. The smaller crystals are the clearest. The largest crystal measures approximately 3 x 3 cm and is actually composed of two conjoined, parallel, double terminated crystals. Within this crystal, there are diffraction rainbows present. The crystals have a high luster. The underlying limestone is thin and similar to what is sometimes seen at the quarry as thin walls between vugs in the limestone. The specimen is in fairly good condition with only a few damaged smaller crystals. One edge of the largest crystal has some damage on one edge and an internal cleave.
