A beautiful miniature of very well crystallised pale sky-blue Celestine shares an earthy cream matrix with honey-tan Calcite crystals, from Holloway quarry by Berlin Township, Monroe County, Michigan, USA.  The largest Celestine crystal measures 3.2 x 1.2 x 0.4 cm and all crystals are semi-transparent; sharp and have steep, chisel-point terminations with a bright yet waxy lustre.  Three Calcite crystals sit amongst the Celestine as translucent, double terminated scalenohedrons.
