Gorgeous deep pink, translucent crystals of cobaltoan calcite on this one really stand out. The crystals are sharp and glassy, with lots of sparkle. With magnification one can see tiny green malachite prisms as well. There are some spots where crystals are missing but overall there are lots of complete, excellent undamaged crystals. This specimen has amazing colour!
