Large deep purple-red crystals of Roselite in a vug decorated with fine Cobaltoan Calcites as accents. Well-composed and showy, the biggest crystals are 1.4 cm which is huge for the specie. In perfect condition inside the vug, outside a thin rim of chipping is noted where this was removed. Very strong display impact for the size.

An especially "electric" colorful specimen with large well defined crystals and outstanding luster. The matrix is a block of pinkish dolomite/ calcite with some of the altered serpentine country rock adhering. The Roselites are in a shallow depression and contrast well with the host matrix. Very striking specimen with great impact. Bou Azzer Roselites are by far the best ever found and this is a quite fine example.
