A beautiful miniature Celestine displaying excellent crystal habit and colour from the Okorusu mine in the Otjozondjupa Region of Namibia. Sharp chisel-like blades of translucent, light cornflower blue Celestine form an intergrown cluster, with crystals measuring between 1.0 and 1.7 cm wide. A choice Celestine specimen from the Okorusu fluorite mine, which exploits an alkaline igneous-carbonatite dike.
