A beautiful pair of pale sky-blue Celestine crystals with excellent terminations, partly embedded in a glassy micro-crystallised matrix of Calcite.  This specimen is from the famous find in the Špania Dolina copper deposit and such Celestine specimens are relatively hard to find nowadays.  The individual crystals measure 7 x 7 x 2 mm, but continue down into the matrix. The matrix also contains dark-grey mixtures of grey sulphides with disseminated Chalcopyrite.  A rare specimen of Celestine from Špania Dolina.
