A pleasing specimen of Cobaltoan Calcite from a location well known for the Cobalt enriched variety of Calcite.

A pink doubly terminated scalenohedral crystal can also be seen towards the lower right side of the specimen, this crystal measures to 1.8cm long. The lustrous Cobaltoan Calcite crystals have developed on a light vuggy matrix of Calcite/Quartz, with dark green spots of a Chlorite.
