This large cabinet specimen consists of part of a geode which is lined with hundreds of Celestite crystals. These crystals are generally in very good condition, as a small number are damaged or broken, and do not exceed 0.8" (2 cm) in length. All have excellent orthorhombic form, with well-defined edges and clean faces. They possess the standard pale gray-blue coloration and pearly-to-vitreous luster, and are generally transparent and very clear. Only a small amount of the chalky, pale brown host rock coats its outer surface.
