MANGANO CALCITE CRYSTALS
An incredibly aesthetic specimen of Mangano Calcite Crystals! Also known as Manganoan Calcite. Perfect little fluorescent crystals rest atop the main matrix, which is solid mangano-calcite. There is also a tiny Sphalerite crystal on one side. A very nice pink in daylight and with good fluorescence showing under UV light. The pic shown was taken under long wave light, I couldn’t get the best photo of it. Specimens of this quality are highly collectible items. The fluorescence of the calcite from Madan is not as bright as other localities, however the quality of the crystals and overall beauty of the piece more than compensate.
