This superb specimen of celestite is an attractive shade of pale blue, with crystals to 1" with surfaces that are lustrous and gleaming. The terminations on the tabular crystals are pristine, and there is no damage. This is a fine old-time specimen from the classic Lime City locality. Ex-Charles M. Noll Collection, with old labels. Noll (1922-2014) bequeathed his extensive mineral collection to his alma mater, Marquette University in Wisconsin. The University had no geology department, so it went to the Seaman Mineralogical Museum, and was later dispersed.
