Description

The base is a little knob of crystalized yellow Sulphur - on it you can see a wonderful star of Celestine crystals. Out from the Sulphur as center they grow radial and formed this amazing assemble. All crystals are end-pointed, razor sharp terminated and water-clear. All faces of each crystal show perfect luster. Celestine from the locality is not really rare, but I seldom saw such an aesthetic and eye-catching piece.
