Celestite, also called Celestine, said to be derived from the Latin caelestis meaning “celestial” or possibly “heavenly”, is sometimes found in masses that have been highly compressed and present as Angel Wings. Celestite in its purest form is clear as crystal, although it is more commonly known for its blue coloring.

Mohs Hardness of 3.5 with a orthorhombic crystal structure

Generally the Celestite mineral is found in areas where limestone and sandstone have begun to break down. Crystals can grow in tabular, thin prismatic, nodular formations. More commonly, Celestite is found growing within a geode.  With it’s perfect cleavage and it’s low Mohs rating, it is quite fragile.

Madagascar and the US are reputed to have some of the finest deposits of Celestite; where specimens have found strong enough to faceted into gems. Geodes from Madagascar  are told to be the most sought after Celestite in the world.

The US deposits were first discovered in New York, near Niagara County when crews were digging the Erie Canal. Enormous blue crystals have been found on South Bass Island in Lake Erie in Ohio, as well as in Michigan, Texas, Colorado and California. Internationally Mexico, England, Italy, Czech Republic and Poland have also been sources for this Celestite.

Metaphysical Properties

Celestite is a popular stone for use in Angelic communications as well as with Spirit Guides.  Once one has been entranced by the Celestite, one will feel lifted from the mundane, tapping into the perfect power of the Universe’s complete love.

This is quite a wonderful stone to assist in mental activities. One will have access to a synchronization  of the conscious with the instincts, providing one to recognize the method of approach required to assess a situation or problem, helping one in analysis of complex ideas, to find the very best solutions.

Meditation with the Celestite shall open a clear channel of communication, helping one ot acknowledge and accept that each of us is part of the Divine Plan. One will learn the peaceful trust that all is where it is meant to be and will flow and ebb with the waters of life to carry one to where one needs to be.

Also used to assist one in recalling one’s dreams, as well as being able to communicate the message of those interpretations properly and clearly as to be understood.
