Celestine specimens (sometimes known as celestite) is a common, dense mineral composed of strontium sulphate which has a delicate blue hue. It is for this colouration that celestine has often been sought after by many mineral collectors and dealers, especially high quality specimens. The colour and crystal quality varies depending on the locality, these particular specimens come from Madagascar, which is a locality for some of the finest examples in the world. Celestine was named by Abraham Gottlieb Werner (a German geologist) in 1799 and was derived from the Greek word “cœlestis,” which means celestial, because of it’s blue colouration. The crystals are typically orthorhombic and can have pointed tips, the mineral can also form in large cavities forming rare celestine geodes. These particular pieces however are only available in 3 optional sizes (see drop down menu), they exhibit a calming blue colouration which the mineral is so well known for. Pieces will be supplied in a card tray with an information label.
