SOLD
An attractive set of about fourteen light pink spherical clusters of translucent Manganoan Calcite. The crystals have a rich silky luster, and are aesthetically distributed on nicely contrasting Manganite matrix. The largest Calcite sphere is about 1.8 cm across, and the radial growth of flat-lying crystals along its sides give it an interesting 'bowtie' look. Excellent fluorescence. Ex. Charlie Key stock.
