The Sakoany deposit, located in a remote mangrove swamp in Madagascar's Katsepy commune, has produced what many people consider the world's finest celestine crystals. Large, lustrous, totally transparent blue celestine crystals occur in geode-like pockets, often with great aesthetics. This is a fine large cabinet-size example with a very sharp, dominant clear blue celestine crystal accented by smaller surrounding crystals. An example of a fairly common mineral in highly uncommon quality from the Proctor Family Trust Collection.
