Name(s) in local language(s): Mina el Tule, Melchor Múzquiz, Mun. de Melchor Múzquiz, Coahuila, Mexico
 
Distinctive specimens from this mine are the large pale blue celestine blades studded with violet fluorite cubes. In rare cases the fluorite forms an almost complete jacket surrounding the celestine; an excellent example of this is found in the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Calcite is a common associated species but is commonly damaged and removed.
