Attractive cluster of beautiful pink Mn-Calcite in elongated crystals up to 2 cm. The terminations are rounded, and the habit looks like long kernels of corn. The luster is silky, which nicely complements the pink color. There is some cleaving, but it really does not affect the overall aesthetics. Superb fluorescence. A very nice, inviting specimen.
