Item Description

Two generations of colorful cobaltoan calcite nailhead spar crystals cover two sides of this rich and bright mounded, heart-shaped small cabinet from the well-known Bou Azzer Mine. First generation pretty pastel-pink gem, glassy rhombs cover most of the front of the sculptural piece. Strikingly contrasting, larger gemmy, rose-pink rhombs cover the top of the front and cascade onto the crest of this very showy and vivid piece. The impressive large rhomb is 1.5 cm long. Classic and colorful two color calcite from Bou Azzer.
