General Gemstone Details
Celestite, which is also known as Celestine, is occasionally found in highly compressed masses that resemble Angel wings - these specimens are referred to as Angelite. Regardless of it's name, it is a Strontium Sulfate, and in its purest form it is crystal clear; although the most well known color is a soft baby blue.  The blue may be caused by the natural irradiation of gold into the mineral.   But it is also found in white, gray or a greenish blue color; the presence of Barium will turn it a brown, orange or yellow color.

Darker blue celestite is generally found to be more expensive than the pale blue variety, regardless of availability.  Celestite is a mineral in it's own right and is often confused with quartz.

Due to the fact that the sites where blue celestite is found, have almost been exhausted, rock crystal is vapor-blasted with gold and offered as a gemstone named Aqua Aura. The effect and sparkle are similar to that of celestite but not quite as strong.

Scientific Properties:
Mohs Hardness of 3.5 with a orthorhombic crystal structure.

Celestite crystals are usually found in areas where limestone and sandstone have begun to break down. Crystals can grow in tabular, thin prismatic (very fragile), nodular, or as a pseudo-hexagonal formations. More commonly, it is found growing inside a geode.

Madagascar and the US are reputed to have some of the finest deposits of celestite. Geodes from Madagascar (some are reportedly fluorescent) are the most sought after in the entire world.

The US deposits were first discovered in New York, near Niagara County when crews were digging the Erie Canal. Enormous blue crystals have been found on South Bass Island in Lake Erie in Ohio, as well as in Michigan, Texas, Colorado and California. Canada boasts a beautiful orange Celestite from an area called Orangeville, near Toronto. Mexico, England, Italy, Czech Republic and Poland have also been sources for this crystal.

Use this stone to assist one in remembering dreams, keep a stone under your pillow and a dream journal beside your bed, each night request the aid of the crystal in remembering and each morning just as you awake, write what your memory brings.  As dreams are tools to the subconscious uses to help the physical and the conscious heal and evolve, this stone will enhance the process through more lucid dreaming, keeping dream records and as a communication channel between the two realms.
