Detailed Description

A super display specimen of vibrant pink cobaltoan calcite crystals. There are different styles of cobaltoan calcite from the Agoudal Mine, and this is the type with free-standing individual crystals. These crystals are sharp and distinct from one another. In excellent condition and stands perfectly for display as shown. Often, the Agoudal cobaltoan calcite specimens with distinct crystals have been paler pink – this one has particularly beautiful colour for this style.

About These Agoudal Mine Specimens

The Agoudal Mine has been a famous source of many excellent mineral specimens for years. In particular, it has been known for beautiful cobaltoan calcite. The locality has included underground and surface workings. I understand from Tomasz Prazkier that all workings at the Agoudal Mine have now ceased. This is sad news for mineral collectors, as the Agoudal Mine has produced some of the finest cobaltoan calcites and roselites ever found anywhere.
