ID: CC1565

A knobbly sparkling specimen of Cobaltoan Calcite partly covered by the rare mineral Kolwezite, from the Mashamba West Mine, D.R.Congo. The Cobaltoan Calcite possesses a very lustrous translucent pastel pink colour. Kolwezite is seen as a minutely crystalline partial covering on the surface of the Cobaltoan Calcite, having a deep olive green colour. Some of the Kolwezite has overgrown a pre-existing mineral which has left the Kolwezite as a hollow box epimorph. A fine combo specimen from the mine.
