Mineral Family: Celestite is a beautiful crystal and a Sulfate mineral. Sulfates are a group of minerals whose crystal structure has four Oxygen atoms forming a square with a Sulfur atom in the center. There are approximately 200 types of Sulfates, with Gypsum and Baryte being very common and the rest being quite rare. Celestite is one of these rare varieties and can be colorless, white, light red, green, blue, or brown. The most desirable color is blue Celestite.

Formation: Most Celestite forms in sedimentary rocks such as Limestone, Dolomite, and Sandstone. Occasionally it forms in hydrothermal deposits. Well formed tabular crystals are one of the hallmarks of Celestite, with crystals more than 30 inches (75 cm) long having been found in some locations. Thick beds of Celestite are also common, with the largest being between 10-20 feet (3-6 meters) deep, found in California.  

Mining: Typically commercially mined in primary deposits. Celestite is one of the richest sources for Strontium, which is used to make the red color in fireworks and signal flairs.

Enhancements: All Celestites on the market are natural, enhanced only through tumbling, cutting, and polishing.

Synonyms: Celestine, Sicilianite

History of Celestite

Celestite is a relatively “new” healing stone whose healing properties have only recently been explored. Its name comes from the Latin word caelestis, meaning “heavenly,” a word which refers to the light blue color of many collector’s specimens. 

Healing Properties of Celestite

Spiritual: Celestite has an exceptionally high vibration that calls forth the Heavenly Host to guide and protect us. It sharpens our intuitive abilities and inner vision, as well as our ability to hear our Spirit Guides and messages from the Divine. Celestite is a stone of spiritual wisdom, which can guide us along our spiritual path, allowing us to advance steadily and understand more than we currently imagine possible. Celestite is a marvelous stone for meditation, prayer, and manifestation, and gently opens the Third Eye, increasing intuition and psychic connection. Celestite is attuned to the Third Eye and Crown Chakras and linked to the astrological sign of Gemini. It is connected to the element of Wind and vibrates to the numbers 2 and 8.

Emotional: Celestite has an incredibly soothing energy that gently leads us to feel uplifted and serene. It promises us that we are safe and protected and to let go of irrational fear and paranoia. Celestite is a pleasant stone, encouraging us to be likewise; patient, kind, and possessing a ready sense of humor. It brings hope when all seems in despair. Celestite brings good fortune and shows us that the path to freedom and joy is defined by acts of love and respect.

Mental: Celestite helps us to analyze complex ideas and integrate rational logic with intuition. It reveals the big picture so that we can fully comprehend a situation or idea and know the many different options with which we may approach it. Celestite is also extremely helpful for exploring and embracing ideas and events which defy our normal logic, such as miracles and other Divine happenings. Celestite also makes an exquisite gift for musicians, dancers, or anyone involved in the arts, as it unites creativity with a heady sense of spiritual bliss.

Physical: Celestite is used by metaphysical healers to clear infections, parasites and toxins out of the body. It is also believed to activate the metabolism and to sooth digestive disorders. Celestite is also used to treat eye and ear infections and illnesses. It is most commonly used to lessen pain and cleanse the area that needs to be healed.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Earth to Pocket

Earth to Pocket is the Moonrise Crystal business mission. It’s the promise that any stones purchased here will be consciously sourced and the journey of the stone, from the Earth and into your Pocket, will be as transparent as possible.

These Celestites were mined in Madagascar and tumbled in South Africa.

I first encountered the US wholeseller at the 2015 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. Right away I was impressed with the quality of the tumbled stones, and especially the appearance of hard-to-find tumbled stones such as Celestite. After talking with the owner, who self-proclaims herself “the Tumbled Queen,” I was even more pleased. The Tumbled Queen knows her stock inside and out and we happily discussed the geology and origins of various rare minerals. I later bought from her again six months later at the 2015 Franklin, NC Gem and Mineral Show.    

It would be my pleasure to hand-select a beautiful Celestite for you.

Your Stone

This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Celestite or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Celestite measures approximately 1 inch at its longest length and has a unique shape with soft edges. Tumbled stones are natural products and variations are part of their beauty.

The stone I choose for you will be a beautiful pale, shimmery blue. If you buy multiple stones, I will choose stones that look and feel particularly good together. Stones will be cleansed and smudged with sage before being shipped to you.

With their subtle shimmer and clean energies, these Celestites are perfect for crystal healing. Add them to a medicine bag, place them on an altar, use them in a crystal elixir, fashion them into jewelry, or simply carry them in your pocket.

Safe Handling of Celestite

Caution!

Celesites are very fragile and can easily chip! As a result, they should not be casually carried in a pocket or in a medicine bag. They are best kept as collectors pieces or on an altar, handling with care.

Celestite should NOT be used to make direct-infusion “Celestite Water” for drinking or bathing. Before making any direct-infusion elixir ALWAYS check the mineralogical properties of the stone to ensure it is not toxic. Only use fully tumbled stones or natural Quartz points in direct-infusion elixirs, never rough stones. When in doubt, make an indirect-infusion elixir instead.

Celestite should not be left in sunshine for extended periods of time because they will gradually lose their color.  It is always considered a “best practice” to keep your stones and crystals out of direct sunlight as much as possible.

Good To Know:

Celestite can be physically cleansed with water or a dusting cloth.

Celestite can be energetically cleansed using any method. They will appreciate being soaked in fresh water, set outside to absorb the moonlight, and/or being smudged with smoke or incense. Use your own intuition to determine the best method.

    The shimmers and depths in the celestite are absolutely gorgeous. Just turning it this way and that is so fascinating that I find myself doing this for minutes at a time almost every time I look at it. Unscheduled meditations?

    The Celestite was mailed the next business day, but took an unusually long time to travel internationally. Typically, international packages arrive in 2-3 weeks. But for some reason, this one took a full month!
