Calcite, var. Cobaltoan Calcite

Specimen # 101282
Mineral: Calcite, var. Cobaltoan Calcite
Location: Agoudal Mine, Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province, Morocco
Size: 13.7 x 11.3 x 6.5 cm
Price: $450.00 CAD

Quantity:

This is a beautiful sparkling large-cabinet specimen of pink cobaltoan calcite. The crystals are sharp and lustrousm and the pink hue varies a fair bit depending on the light source - it is a cooler pink under daylight colour temperatures (as shown here) and under a 50W halogen it is a warmer pink.

In excellent condition - a couple of small incomplete crystals, and some incomplete around the edges where this was attached to surrounding rock. (In the photo of the whole specimen, the two non-peripheral incomplete ones are about 1/8 of the way up from the bottom, to left of centre - the other lighter-coloured crystals across the middle are not damaged, they are just showing internal reflections and some lighter colour.) The specimen stands as photographed, but needs support or a stand to make sure nothing tips it. This is a heavier piece - if shipping beyond North  America, there will be an additional shipping cost. 

A great, colourful large display piece.
