Incredibly colorful and sparkly, vivid pink Cobaltoan Calcites cover the matrix on this striking specimen from the Mashamba West Mine. The habit is more of a tabular/rhombic form (almost like poker chips), and the luster is excellent. Finding a Cobaltoan Calcite with this rich of a color AND the glassy luster makes it a find, indeed. It is so much better than the norm, it stands a level above.
