Celestite Meaning – General Information.
Celestite, also known as Celestine, derives its name from the Greek cœlestis, meaning celestial or heavenly and was so named by Abraham Gottlieb Werner in 1799. It usually occurs as crystals found growing within geodes, as well as in compressed massive and fibrous forms. Best known for its light blue colouring, although in its purest form it is clear or colourless. And it also occasionally appears with white, grey, yellow, orange and reddish-brown colouring. It is quite fragile, has a Mohs Hardness of 3 – 3.5 and an orthorhombic crystal structure. It is a transparent to translucent crystal with a vitreous or pearly lustre.
Celestite is the primary source of the element strontium, which is a common ingredient in fireworks and in various metal alloys.
Take care with this beautiful crystal, because it has a brittle crystalline structure that may fracture easily and fade in direct sunlight.
