Cobaltoan Calcite With Malachite

ID: CC1597

Bright pink intergrown rhombic crystals of Cobaltoan Calcite line a cavity in a geode-like specimen, nicely accentuated by the surrounding whitish translucent Calcite. The pink Calcite is host to a 0.7cm by 0.5cm intergrown group of three sharp curved rhombohedral crystals of deep green Malachite. The Calcite is spotted throughout with Malachite, some with 'Chalcocite' cores. A very attractive specimen of super bright colour.
