ID: CC20262
Rhombic, intensely deep purple cerise-pink Calcite crystals to over 1 cm coat the entire upper face of a flat Quartz matrix from the Kakanda deposit in the Kambove District of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).  Small saddle-shaped rosettes of translucent milky white Calcite (or possibly Dolomite) are sparsely scattered along one side of the display surface.  Cobaltoan Calcite from this famous mining district is highly sought and this is a stunning miniature example.
