ID: CC17392
A fabulous vivid fuchsia-pink bed of nicely crystallised Cobaltoan Calcite from Mashamba West mine in the Kolwezi District of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DR Congo, formerly Zaire).  Covering a carbonate matrix of creamy-grey impure Calcite, the Cobaltoan Calcite forms a 0.5 to 2 cm thick crust of intergrown crystals and shows colour zoning around the sides of the specimen, changing from flesh-pink through mild candy-pink to a 5 mm thick cap of shocking fuchsia-pink.  A highly lustrous and fine display specimen of stunning Cobaltoan Calcite from the Mashamba West mine.
