ID: CC1696

For a long time now the Bou Azzer district of Morocco has been producing outstanding Cobaltoan Calcite specimens. This specimen is one of a half dozen or so we picked from a large find in early 2008. A lustrous botryoidal coating of crystals with pale milky pink to intense pink colour at the surface, line an exposed cavity. There is also a secondary growth of larger individual scalenohedral crystals which sit over the druse, measuring to 4mm in size. A larger cabinet piece with a good overall 'flowing' form and a bright colouration.
