27240: Celestine and Calcite
Stoneco Lime City Quarry, Lime City, Wood County, Ohio
Cabinet - 11.7 x 10.0 x 5.1 cm (4.6 x 3.9 x 2.0 inches)
Specimen status: Sold

Light blue, translucent to transparent, tabular celestine crystals cover the display face, and reach 2.8 cm in length. These in turn are mostly blanketed by an overgrowth of tiny, colorless calcites (last photo). These calcites display a modest bluish fluorescence under both shortwave and longwave UV. Some cleaved celestines around the edges, and a little microchipping/edgewear is noted. Displays well without needing a stand. A good example for the species and locality.
