ID: CC14626
A delightful, off-matrix, interpenetrant twin of Cobaltite from the Tunaberg copper-cobalt ore field, at Tunaberg in Sweden.  The joint crystals have a cleaved base and form a small dome formed by the two interlocking modified orthorhombic crystals.  The specimen is a uniform dull lead-grey but clearly shows an earthy cobalt pink blush.  The cleaved basal plane reveals the true ethereal rose-pink hue of the Cobaltite ore.  A great twinned crystal of this uncommon species.
