The cobaltoan dolomite crystals on this specimen are a shocking, intense pink colour. Accompanied by small dark green crystals of primary malachite, and set against a pale dolomite matrix, this piece has nice contrast. In particular, there is one beautiful cobaltoan dolomite perched on malachite crystals – it’s super with magnification. In excellent condition, with a few incomplete crystals around the periphery. A very pretty piece!
