Fine Cobaltoan Calcite from Bou Azzer. Basically dodecahedrons, these medium pink crystals fully cover one side of the matrix, with the largest crystals ranging to just over 1 cm. The faces of these modified Calcites vary from smooth and lustrous to very finely terraced, the combination of which creates a nice visual counterpoint. Top quality for the location and style.
