Does anyone have any idea what this may be?

It was labeled as "Celestite, possibly from San Rapheal, Utah", but I think that it was mislabeled and is something else.  The center does have some grayish-blue in it, so if it is Celestite, it is surrounded by something else.

Looks like Celestite to me. A color change while the crystals are growing could be due to a trace mineral in the soup the crystals grew from

Thank you!  I did more searching online, and did find some orange celestite that looks real close to this.  Thanks for the help.
