Manganocalcite, South Africa; 6 1/2" Across

This is a good representative specimen of manganocalcite from one of the manganese mines of Kuruman, Northern Cape Province, South Africa. The pale pink color of manganocalcite is caused by the presence of a trace of manganese cations that "contaminate" the calcium carbonate crystal lattice.
