Celestite Crystals
Description: The mineral celestite is found in eleven counties in Ohio, mostly in the northwestern part of the state. Although most frequently a faint blue, celestite may be colorless, white or various other colors. Chemically, celestite is strontium sulfate (SrSO4). It is used in the ceramic and glass industries and in making fireworks. This sample was collected in 1992 from Clay Center Quarry in Ottawa County, Ohio. The Lake Erie region of Ohio is one of the best places to find celestite in the United States. This sample measures 20 x 14 x 9 inches (50.80 x 35.56 x 22.86 cm). View on Ohio Memory.
