Celestine is a crystal that can be found worldwide and is named for its occasional delicate blue color. The name is derived from the Latin word, caelestis, which means “celestial”. It is most often found in shades of pale blue or white but can also be found in orange, pink, pale green, pale brown, grey, or colorless.
Celestine consists of strontium sulfate (SrSO4). Celestine and the carbonate mineral strontianite are the main sources of the element strontium, commonly used in fireworks and in various metal alloys.
