Specimen # 201151
Mineral: Celestine
Location: Meckley's Quarry, Mandata, Northumberland Co., Pennsylvania, USA
Size: 4.3 x 3.4 x 3.0 cm


Intergrown blocky crystals of blue celestine from the classic Pennsylvania celestine locality, Meckley’s Quarry (production at Meckley’s commenced in 1936). These crystals are well-formed, with good lustre and an intricate crystallization pattern at the termination faces. In excellent condition overall, two chips (one is the white spot visible in the first photo). A very fine Pennsylvania celestine from the John S. White Pennsylvania collection, collected by his good friend, Skip Colflesh.
