Cobalto Calcite Specimen

Cobaltoan calcite, also known as cobalto calcite or pink cobalt calcite, is a variety of calcite that contains traces of cobalt, which impart a vivid pink to reddish-purple coloration. This unique coloration distinguishes it from other forms of calcite.

The origin of cobaltoan calcite is closely tied to its mineral composition. It is typically found in association with copper and cobalt mineral deposits in sedimentary rocks, often in regions with significant geological activity. Some notable sources of cobaltoan calcite include the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Morocco, and the United States.

The history of cobaltoan calcite is intertwined with the broader history of calcite as a mineral. Calcite has been known and used since ancient times for various purposes, including as a building material, decorative stone, and in the production of lime. Cobaltoan calcite, specifically prized for its striking color, has gained popularity among mineral collectors and lapidaries for its aesthetic appeal. Its vibrant pink hues make it a sought-after specimen for use in jewelry, ornamental carvings, and mineral displays.
