Referenced as a Chrysanthemum Stone, this is piece of dark-gray Limestone matrix featuring a radiating spray of white-to-light-gray Celestine crystals that mimic the shape of a blooming chrysanthemum flower. Although it looks painted on, these “flowers” are completely natural, the result of years of accumulating layers of mud interspersed with precipitated nodules of Celestine that due to great weight and compression begin to radiate outward, thus the flower pattern. This particular piece exhibits fantastic clarity and symmetry and is an excellent representation of this unique mineral formation.
