Calcite and manganocalcite

One very rare specimen, combination of two steep scalenohedron manganocalcite, overgrowth by transparent calcite – forming phantom inside transparent calcite

Epidote with manganocalcite

One unususal and rarest mineral combination in deposit Laki. Small, green, spherolite orientated needles of epidote in combination with large pink manganocalcite crystals

Epidote with quartz and manganocalcite

A very showing cabinet size specimen of thin epidote crystals developed on quartz. In the late stage of crystallization process, where developed several pink managnocalcite crystals with a nice morphology and lustrous faces.

Pink calcite (manganocalcite) on quartz

A nice small specimen of rhombohedral crystals of manganocalcite, forming „rose“ like aggregates of pink to orange crystals, developed on thin quartz crystals.

Manganocalcite with chalcopyrite

A very nice and aesthetic specimen of well terminated, light pink color manganocalcite crystals with rhombohedron after scalenohedron crystals, covered by small and very shiny pyrite crystals.

Manganocalcite , quartz and pyrite

Exceptional and very aesthetic specimen presenting flat manganocalcite crystals developed on thin transparent quartz crystals, followed by shiny well shaped cubic pyrite crystals. Some of the pyrites have rainbow effect, due to a thin coating of bornite-covellite as result of the oxidation process.

Cluster of splited calcite crystal

A very rare specimen, showing the full process of forming of this cluster. In the down part of the specimen, could be sen down half of scalenohedron calcite crystal, which in the process of developing split many times building this bouquet of calcite crystals
