Mineral Specimen #5272    Manganoan Fluorescent Calcite Epitaxial Growth on Scalenohedral Calcite

Manaoshan Mine, Dongpo ore field, Suxian District, Chenzhou Prefecture, Hunan Province, China

This specimen has an outer layer of Calcite which has grown upon underlying Calcite crystals in a epitaxial habit which has produced a multitude of parallel surfaces. The outer layer of crystals is a light pink color with a high, glossy luster. The specimen fluoresces a bright orange under UV, more so under SW than LW.

Condition: Very Good

Flaws: The termination of the third largest crystal is cleaved and there is a small cleaved area near where the first and second largest crystals meet. Neither of these are noticeable and do not distract from the specimens appearance.
