Celestite Origin & Physical Properties

Celestite is a grayish pale blue to sky blue crystalized mineral composed of strontium sulfate. Celestite, apart from being sought after by collectors in the mineral world, is also the principal source for the element strontium, used in fireworks and metal alloys. Celestine crystalizes in tabular to pyramidal crystals, often in clusters and in geodes surrounded by a thin layer of its host rock. These geodes are broken up to expose the crystals and divided into specimens usually before being sold. It is a soft mineral with a hardness of only 3 to 3.5 Mohs making it not ideal for the use in jewelry, thus most collector’s are interested in quality crystal specimens in their raw form.

The name Celestine is derived from the Latin word ‘caelestis’, meaning celestial, related to the word ‘caelum’ meaning sky or heaven. Incredibe le large clusters of fine quality Celestite crystals and geodes have been discovered in Madagascar over the last decade, and this is easily the most important location for quality Celestine world wide. The largest known geode to ever be discovered is composed of Celestite and it measures 11 meters (35 feet) at its widest diameter!
