Celestine or Celestite is in the form of greyish-blue or blue crystals. Celestine is made of strontium sulfate Celestine is used during meditation for connecting with higher consciousness and achieving mindfulness.
It is derived from the Latin word “celestis” which means heaven.
A typical celestite is greyish-blue with small crystals that are granular, but when it grows larger, it looks like a flat plate of crystal points.

Magical effects of Celestite:
Celestite is a stone reminiscent of the deep blue sky that spreads out in the heavens.
This stone, like sugilite and moldavite, is a very useful stone for modern people in the transitional period in the spiritual sense. It can be said that it appeared on the surface of the earth after waking up from the sleep in the ground because it is a stone that is needed right now.
Celestite Meaning as a Gemstone
The literal translation of the word Celestite means “stone of the celestial world.”
The color, which can be described as ice blue, sometimes makes you feel like you are being sucked into the sky when you stare at it.
This is a major characteristic of celestite.
It unleashes people’s hearts from the thoughts of the earth, slowly invites them to the sky, and emits such vibrations that seem to take them to the heavenly world.
Of course, instead of physically ascending to the sky, it can be said that the consciousness spreads beyond the individual’s body and becomes one with the sky.
There is a sense of silence, peace and peace.
However, as the brain and consciousness become clearer in such silence, one may notice a reversal phenomenon.
The expanse of the heavenly world is not above the sky. In fact, it’s a world that you can find when you go deep inside yourself.
This point is symbolically reflected in the state of production of the stone celestite.
Celestite often crystallizes in spaces within sedimentary rocks, gaping cavities.
In particular, celestite from Madagascar has a ball-like roundness in the host rock itself, and probably because of this, there are often products in which the entire body including the host rock is polished into an egg shape.
The reason why the processor came up with the idea of molding this stone with host rock into an egg shape is because he perceived the inspiration from the stone.
Celestite looks like a blue glow that broke the shell of an egg and looked into its face.
Its appearance is a metaphor that shows our state of living in the present age.
Although human beings are souls that dwell in the body, they are trapped in the individual bodies, and for a long time they have fallen into the illusion that the body itself is itself.
But now it’s time to break that shell.
Just as Celestite breaks the egg of the host rock and emits the blue light of the celestial world, human beings are required to notice the inner heavenly world and break the shell of the heart to express its sacred nature.
From that perspective, celestite can be called a “shell-breaking stone” or, in a spiritual sense, a “stone for rebirth.”
The consciousness of a person who has overcome the illusion of physical separation gives us a sense of trust and security that everything is connected. It will bring a new kind of strength that has never been seen before.
How to use Celestite
On the practical side, celestite is often found to be very useful as a bedside stone.
Celestite is a physically soft stone, but its vibrations are also gentle. Unlike stones that purify the space with intense vibrations, it is said that the place is slowly purified and filled with peaceful vibrations.
Therefore, it is said that if you put it in the bedroom, you will be able to sleep soundly, and you will often have important dreams and remember the dreams you had.
These tranquility and peaceful qualities make it suitable not only for bedrooms, but also for living rooms, healing rooms and meditations.
If left unchecked, it is said that the energy field is gently purified and gives a feeling of being safe and protected, soothing the emotional body of the person and raising the feelings.
However, the subtle shades of celestite may fade when exposed to ultraviolet light, so it is recommended to keep it away from the windowsill as much as possible.
How to cleanse and Purify celestite or Celestine:
Prolonged sunbathing can cause fading and is not recommended.
The most recommended purification method is to burn the leaves of white sage and let the smoke lightly pass through the stones.

The main component of celestite is strontium. Strontium is used as a material for fireworks because it emits a red glow when it burns.
Many of them are grayish blue and light blue, and especially in Madagascar, they produce beautiful translucent stones. Others are colorless, yellow, orange and gray.
Colorless celestite may look like crystal at first glance. However, unlike quartz, which is a relatively hard mineral with a hardness of 7, celestite is a soft mineral with a hardness of 3 to 3.5 and is easily broken by impact.
It is also a blue-gray stone made of strontium, and has anhydrite called blue calcite and angelite, which also has a blue-gray color reminiscent of the sky.
In the barite group, barium replaced with strontium becomes celestite, and strontium replaced with calcium becomes gypsum.
Both barite and anhydrite, which are blue-gray with strontium, can be difficult to distinguish from celestite.
