Celestite Crystal Mineral Specimen for SaleCelestite

 

Rocks, Minerals, and FossilsNamed for its "celestial," sky-blue color, Celestite can also be yellow, light red, green, brown, or colorless.  Discovered in Pennsylvania in 1791, Celestite (also called Celestine) is strontium sulfate (SrSO4).  It's a major source of the element strontium, commonly used in fireworks, glazes, and metal alloys.

Celestite forms when water trickles through fissures and pockets inside sedimentary rocks under the sea.  It may also be found in the cavities of fossils, including fossil ammonites.  Crystals take a wide variety of forms, but are typically tablet- or prism-shaped.  The beautiful blue Celestite specimens on this page are from Madagascar.

The largest known geode in the world is a Celestite geode in Put-In-Bay, Ohio, on South Bass Island in Lake Erie.  About 30 feet in diameter, it was discovered in 1897 by workers digging a well for a winery, and is now a tourist attraction called the Crystal Cave.  If you won't be traveling in that area any time soon, you can watch this video.
