Celestite is a stunning mineral that features a celestial blue color unique in the mineral kingdom. Celestite specimens may feature large, chunky crystals; smaller, flower-like clusters; or a combination of both. Celestite clusters make for intriguing display pieces for the home or office. This specimen comes from Madagascar.
Color: Primarily sky blue; may include gray-blue and/or white
Mineralogy: Celestite (strontium sulfate) is often white or gray, but the sky-blue variety is the most highly desired amongst mineral collectors. It is formed when nodules of gypsum or anhydrite (both calcium sulfate minerals) are exposed to strontium-rich solutions which dissolve existing calcium and cause precipitation of strontium sulfate crystals.
Metaphysical Properties: Celestite aids personal creative expression, helps reduce stress, and provides peace of mind. It also helps one adjust to higher states of awareness, provides access to and transfer of information from the angelic realms, and assists in clairaudient endeavors.
