SD03 Manganocalcite
DalNegorsk, Primorskiy Kray, Russia
15.1x 11.7x 9.6 cm

A beautiful specimen of pink calcite, composed of three tapered sprays clustered together.  About 3-4 years ago there was a similar find of tapered pink calcites, I purchased a few at that time, though all were individual clusters.  

The arrangement of the calcite sprays is particularly beautiful, the third smaller spray hangs off the edge of the middle spray.  Of all the pieces in cases of one of the Russian dealers in Denver, my eye was immediately drawn to this one.  There were a couple other manganocalcites in the pocket, but none were nearly as well put together as this one.
