Dolomite, var. Cobaltoan Dolomite

Specimen # 100827
Mineral: Dolomite, var. Cobaltoan Dolomite
Location: Dolomite, var. Cobaltoan Dolomite, Katanga, Democratic Republic of the Congo
Size: 11.5 x 8.2 x 4.1 cm


This is a good-sized specimen with sparkling crystals of cobaltoan dolomite all over. Highly lustrous, glassy crystals, with magnification you can see nice transparency-translucence. I would mount this one so that it stands up as in the first photo, but it has been trimmed from behind with a saw to reduce the matrix, so it will also lie flat, if you prefer. In very good condition, one small area of missing crystals. Lots of sparkle!
