Description

    Manganocalcite
    Erma Reka, Zlatograd
    Smolyan Oblast
    Bulgaria

    Without a doubt, this is an exquisite piece of rich pink Manganocalcite. It exhibits relatively large crystals with pleasant form. The color is consistent across the complex surface, with the exception of areas with a natural "iron staining." This piece has a natural vertical orientation and is visually striking. The "soapy" example is lustrous, and the large cabinet specimen is clearly impressive for the coloration. The back has a minimal matrix and displays an area which may have been a contact point. Overall, the piece is in good condition and should make a great addition to any case needing a larger piece with big color.
    Overall Measurements: 9.45 x 6.69 x 2.76 inches (24.00 x 17.00 x 7.00 cm)

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]


    Estimate: $1,000 - $1,500.
