Cobalto Calcite- Pink Drusy
This material is often called Pink Druse (or Pink Drusy).
Lovely light pink to dark magenta Cobalto Calcite (AKA Cobalticalcite, Cobaltian Calcite, and believed to be more correctly-Cobaltoan Dolomite) from the Kakanda Mine, in the Katanga Copper Crescent, Shaba Province, Zaire, Africa.
This is a variety of Calcite containing Cobalt. The result of the cobalt is that the calcite is colored a pale pink. In pure sphaerocobaltite (most examples contain a small but significant percentage of calcium), the coloring effect is magnified.
Metaphysical Properties: Pink Cobalto Calcite is said to symbolize love and caring and is good for broken hearts and self discovery.
