This is the by far the single brightest, most fake-looking, neon-pink specimen I have ever seen of this rare material often mistaken for the more common species cobaltian calcite, composed of microcrystalline crystals forming pleasntly curvaceous spherical aggregates. Accented by a bit of aragonite, to show you the pics aren't tampered with - it really is BRIGHTER in person.. It is VIBRANT!
