Several dozen Celestite crystals are heavily intergrwon on this specimen. Most of these are damaged or broken, but those that are intact reach lengths of nearly 1" (2.5 cm). Where intact, they have excellent orthrhombic prismatic form, with well-defined edges and clean faces that possess a pearly-to-vitreous luster. All have the standard pale gray-blue coloration and are generally transparent and quite clear. A small amount of a chalky, pale brown host rock is present.
