Celestine, also known as Celestite, is a fascinating crystal that has captivated the minds of both crystal enthusiasts and spiritual seekers alike. celestine, mineral that is a form of strontium sulfate (SrSO4).

Celestine is an attractive mineral that occurs in well-shaped crystals with a distinctive soft blue color. Crystals may be a solid color, but may have areas of color lighter and darker than blue.

While pure Celestine is colorless, various impurities give the mineral a wider range of colors. Celestine geodes are large, deep, sky-blue crystals known and abundant from Madagascar.
