Item Description

The aesthetics of this classic Michigan celestine are outstanding. The super-glassy, intergrown, blue-gray crystals have unusual transparency below the sharp, jagged, chisel terminations. One side is strikingly accented with a celestine sidecar and a rich, partial coating of small, gray calcite scalenohedrons. Complete all-around and pristine. A wonderful Michigan celestine from the Feist Collection # 2657. Valued at $400-600
