At least 30 Celestite prisms make up the bulk of this hand specimen. Several of these crystals are so intergrown as to form single entities, and the largest of these has dimensions of 1.3 x 1.1 x 0.8" (3.3 x 2.8 x 2.0 cm). All are in excellent condition and have excellent orthorhombic form, with well-defined edges and clean faces that possess a pearly luster. All are colored a bright white and are translucent, though some tiny crystals are transparent and quite clear. They rest on a base that is made up of their own intergrown bases and some massive sulfur that has filled in the gaps.
