Cobalto Calcite- Pink Drusy
This lovely natural semi precious gemstone cabochon 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 cabochons are said to symbolize love and caring and are good for broken hearts and self discovery.
