Cobalto Calcite Mineral Specimen Pink Magenta Crystal
This lovely natural rough Cobalto Calcite mineral specimen is covered with small green Malachite crystal balls. Often referred to as Pink Druse, this piece is 4 inches by 2.25 inches and 2 inches thick. It does stand up nicely or sits on a slant.
Lovely sparkly mineral specimen of cotton candy pink Cobalto Calcite (AKA Cobalticalcite, Sphaerocobaltite, and cobaltian-calcite) from the Kakanda Mine, Shaba Province, Zaire, Africa.
This is a variety of Calcite containing Cobalt. The result of the presence of the cobalt is that the calcite is colored a pale pink. In pure sphaerocobaltite (most examples contain a small but significant percentage of calcium), the coloring effect is magnified. The sometimes deep rose-red to pink color is very attractive and unique.
