ID: CC7145
A fine and showy large cabinet specimen of light creamy, powder pink Manganese-bearing Calcite covers a light grey brecciated country rock from the Trepča Orebody Complex in Kosovo. This variety of Mn-rich Calcite was formerly termed Manganoan Calcite, but this term appears to being phased out in common usage. The Mn-rich Calcite forms a thin yet pervasive botryoidal druse over the matrix, so forming a fine specimen for display.
