Ex. Robert Gannon, 1960s or 70s
A fan of light blue colored, flattened Celestine crystals partially coated with small, dogtooth Calcite crystals. The quarry is well known for these distinctive crystals. Access to the quarry is very seldom granted although locals have ben known to sneak in after hours (such specimens are referred to as Saturday Night Specials). This is an older specimen collected when access was easier to get.
Flaws: One of the smaller crystals is bruised on the termination.
