I wish I could say that this was a classic celestite and sulfur specimen, with the celestial blue contrasting nicely with bright yellow, but unfortunately the celestite crystals are on one side, and the sulfur mostly on the other. The celestite crystals have nice shapes (and tow almost radial clusters), but they appear slightly milky due to a myriad of internal fractures, plus their surfaces have a fine pitting and the pits contain a light dusting of some mineral yielding a slightly dirty, dull appearance. On the reverse side, the sulfur crystals do not have good form, although they are transparent (but with a pitted surface texture).
