Cobalto Calcite     Agoudal Mine, Bou Azzer, Morocco.  These bright pink to purple calcites were one of the few things that we could say was relatively new at this year’s Tucson show (2004).  They have been available in the past but never in quantities that the general collector would find “comfortable” for price or would lend themselves to the wholesale market.  This one is an impressive example measuring 7.5 x 6.2 x 4 cm and is domical in form.  It views well from all sides showing no contact except for the base on which it sits.  Well formed crystals to almost a cm each.  Very high quality for this material.  Rich, rose quartz pink on front and more brownish pink on back.  I see one small cleaved crystal with magnification.  Exceptionally clean and displays damage free.  $295
