- Ex. Tom Wolfe
A gorgeous "hedgehog" like specimen with a blastingly intense fluorescence, and rich deep pink color in normal light as well. Totally covering one side of the matrix are clusters of spiky, translucent, pink colored, manganocalcite crystals to 5 cm in length. The crystals fluoresce a bright orange color. A very large and dramatic specimen, overall, that just has more 3-dimensional pizzazz than most from here. An older piece (1980s or 1990s), from the Tom Wolfe calcite collection.
