Hilltop Quarry, Glen Williams quarries, Esquesing Township, Halton Region, Ontario, Canada

Dimensions: 9 cm x 7 cm x 6 cm

Size: 9.0 x 7.0 x 6.0 cm

This is an old specimen from a classic locality near Glen Williams, Ontario.

Orange Celestine does not occur in euhedral crystals at this locality. This specimen is about as good as it gets!

Studies have shown that the color is due to the presence of Copper in the order of 50 ppm (ref. American Mineralogist, V64, p160-168, 1979)
