This is a beautiful specimen of numerous light pink Mangano Calcite Rhombohedra. The piece appears to be very lightly dusted with a microcrystalline Calcite, giving it a satin luster. Bear with me on this thought: When I’ve displayed this piece next to countless shiny specimens, the contrast of this beautiful silky luster to all the others actually makes it stand out in the crowd. This is a great show piece and is in excellent condition.
