Well formed, white colored Celestine crystals with a high glossy luster. The crystals are almost clear at the terminations. There is druze Calcite crystals covering the lower parts of the Celestine crystals. There is an interesting stalactic growths of Calcite crystals which can be seen in the last, non fluorescent, mineral photo. At the base of the specimen is some massive, yellow Sulfur. Under UV, both the Celestine and Calcite fluoresce with the Celestine exhibiting a light blue color which is not quite as vivid as in the picture.

Condition: Good

Flaws: There is some very minor bruising in a couple of places on the terminations of the Celestine crystals. The back of the specimen is massive material as well as the bottom third of the front of the specimen.
