description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Majunga, Madagascar <br /><br />3" tall <br /><br />This piece was traded into the collection in early 2015. Trimming unweildy celestite geodes to attractive cabinet and small cabinet sized specimens is a relative recent event in mineralogical commerce. Before this event, many collectors excluded Madagascan celestite from collections because they only saw Madagascan celestite as a type of "decorator rock" instead of a fine collector mineral. The availability of smaller and expertly trimmed Madagascan celestite has altered the perceptions of many buyers towards this mineral.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This piece was traded from Dylan Stolowitz during a visit to his gallery in upstate New York in March 2012.  </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia     </p>
