Cobaltoan Calcite
Bou Azzer District, Tazenakht, Ouarzazate Province
Souss- Massa- Draa Region, Morocco
7.4 x 7.3 x 4.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $290


Vivid magenta-pink crystals of Cobaltoan Calcite clustered in an esthetic mass. The crystals are just over one CM in length (one is 1.6 CM)and are sharp, transparent and have a slightly textured or silky luster. In excellent condition overall, this is from a major find about 6 years ago. Cobaltoan Calcites are really only found in fine specimens at just two localities worldwide and currently neither place has produced specimens for some time. In Morocco there have been only three important larger finds in more than 40 years, and the most recent productive zone is currently flooded. Very good value for color and form.
