Item Description

A sculptural small cabinet monolith of a terminated manganoan calcite crystal from the 2017 find at this now well-known remote mine. The light pastel pink, tabular, hexagonal crystal is translucent and has silky satin lustre faces. A very fine example of the find and striking varietal. Striking neon-orange fluorescence.
