We see very few faceted Celestites from any locale and we generally get access to one or two stones per year.  Celestite is a difficult gem to facet and typically we see an asymmetric shape and less than ideal polish - not at all the case here, the stone is quite dazzling and bright.  Great size, a fine cut and a good and noticeable blue color - most of these are so light as to appear colorless, not at all the case here. Simply nothing we can say to detract here, a great Celestite for the collection.
