An outstanding cobaltoan calcite from older finds at the Agoudal Mine in Morocco’s Bou Azzer District! This specimen features a group of large, hot pink calcite crystals that have formed over massive yellow calcite. The arrangement of the crystals is highly aesthetic, as each individual crystals is fairly well isolated from the others, making them seem to spray out from a common center. The crystal habit is quite interesting, as well; though their appearance would favor the scalenohedron, they are actually steep, elongated rhombohedrons. The color is electric and the specimen is in great condition save for a few very minor dings. Ex. Steve Sinotte & Rebecca Stewart Collection.
