The famous ‘wine stain calcite’, this is a very striking display specimen from a famous specimen producing silver mine in the ancient silver mining region of Saxony in Germany.  In a display cabinet your eye goes straight to this beautiful specimen.
Cobaltoan calcites like this are post mining caused by coralliferous ions being leached from primary cobalt ores in the vein and being deposited in a calcite matrix.
I have never seen a better one.
