Just a drop-dead gorgeous waterfall of sparkly goodness! That pink from the cobalto calcite is the perfect shade of HOT pink… and embellished with sparkly lush green malachite sprinkles too! Way to make a statement. Cobaltoan Calcite, also known as Cobalt Calcite and Aphrodite Stone, is an uncommon variety of Calcite that has Cobalt impurities. This mineral was first discovered in the Calamita mine in Tuscany, Italy. Since then, only a handful of localities have been found throughout the world. The most important veins of this mineral are currently located in the Congo, Morocco, Australia, Mexico, the UK, Spain, Italy, and Switzerland.
