Cobaltoan Calcite Cabochon Pink Magenta Crystal
This freeform custom cut Pink Druse cabochon is 43 mm by 31 mm and 6 mm thick.
Lovely sparkly cabochon of magenta pink Cobaltoan Calcite (AKA Cobaltian calcite, and cobaltocalcite) from the Kakanda Mine, Shaba Province, Zaire, Africa. The surface is its natural formation.
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.
Cabochons are stones cut for jewelry and are measured in mm. One inch is equal to about 25 mm. 13 mm is only about 1/2 inch.
