Item Description

A STRIKING and AESTHETIC, diverging spray of very glassy, nearly water-clear, colorless celestine crystals resting on a bit of contrasting sulfur from the famous Machow Mine of Poland and the Dave Stoudt Collection. The glassy prisms are particularly gemmy at the sharp, chisel terminations. EXCELLENT material from this famous locale. For such rich coverage, there are only two or three crystals with trivial termination wear. Barely noticeable and certainly not detracting. Dave lived and worked in Poland for a number of years and bought the specimen there directly from miners who collected it. Valued $750. MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!
