Description

Very interesting group of white celestine crystals from this old little quarry that only gave samples for three months, today the quarry, where the gypsum was exploited, is buried under thousands of tons of leftover stone from the current quarry, so there are no more new samples in this field, only the hundred pieces that appeared in those days.
