Specimen # 200436
Mineral: Celestine
Location: Holloway Quarry, Newport, Monroe Co., Michigan, USA
Size: 7.8 x 2.9 x 1.0 cm


A sharp prismatic celestine crystal with prominent lateral striations at the termination. The crystal is translucent, with light blue zoning up through its centre. In excellent condition, one chipped area on one side near the bottom and a couple of tiny chips if you look for them. From the Pete Richards collection (acquired October 12, 1991), this is a very nice classic Holloway celestine.
