Dolomite, var. Cobaltoan Dolomite

Specimen # 100684
Mineral: Dolomite, var. Cobaltoan Dolomite
Location: Agoudal Mine, Bou Azzer District, Ouarzazate Province, Morocco
Size: 10.8 x 7.0 x 3.6 cm


This is a hot pink cabinet specimen of cobaltoan dolomite! Almost hard to believe this colour, but that’s cobalt for you – it’s striking, to say the least. The dolomite crystals (up to 0.6 cm) are sharp with nice sparkling lustre. In excellent condition, a couple of spots where there are crystals missing, but minor relative to the size of the specimen. This one just leaps out from the display cabinet.
