Wendwilsonite, a rare calcium-magnesium-cobalt arsenate occurs as excellent broad bladed crystals to about 5 mm tall on a delicate blush-pink Cobaltoan Calcite matrix.  Wendwilsonite forms a series with Roselite, the latter occurring on this specimen as candy pink micro-crystals and probably within the Wendwilsonite crystals where the two series become interspersed.
