Weight - 390 grams (0.86 pounds)
Specimen status: Sold

Pleasantly pretty pastel pink manganoan calcite 'fuzz' fills much of the cavity formed by several terminated quartz crystals. Sparkly and very pink, with interesting texture and aesthetics. Fuzzy! Pink! Accented with a few small patches of quartz druze. No damage. This will certainly add a splash of color to your display cabinet. Did I mention it's pink?
