4.8" Honey Yellow Celestite (Celestine) Crystals - Machow Mine, Poland

This is a 4.8" wide cluster of golden, honey-colored celestine crystals from the Machów Mine in Poland. They have sharp terminations and are very different in both color and crystal shape from the commonly seen Madagascar celestine. The underside of this specimen features vibrant yellow native sulfur.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

celestite (or celestine) is a mineral consisting of strontium sulfate (SrSO4). It tends to form attractive, well-shaped crystals that are often found inside of geodes. One of the main sources of celestine is the deposits on the northwestern coast of Madagascar, however, it's found in a wide variety of other locations and formations.

The world's largest known geode is 35 feet (10.7 m) in diameter at its widest point, and is located near the village of Put-in-Bay, Ohio. The geode has been converted into a viewing cave that's now referred to as Crystal Cave.
