Mangano Calcite

<<< Return to Minerals
Specimen Code Number: H600
Learn more about: Calcite
Size: Cabinet
14 x 14 x 12 cm
Location: Naica
Description: A huge pink Calcite crystal, I call MMM, the Monster Mangano from Mexico. It's complete all around and translucent. The color of this calcite is the direct result of manganese and chlorite. This same find produced green quartz crystals of chlorite inclusions, and they are rare today too. On occasion, I see quartz come up for sale, but rarely pink calcite and never in such a large size. There is some attached Sphalerite, Pyrite, and Quartz, mostly on the bottom. In good condition overall, undamaged with just slight edge wear in areas. Spectacular large crystal I value at around $400-$500. Weighs about 5 pounds so there will be extra shipping costs associated.
