This is a most unusual pink manganocalcite from Kosovo with glazing on her sides … two sides is are siderite and pyrite, one is siderite and calcite, two are bare and the remaining sides are coated with sparkling calcite druse! She apparently has some students, but they are so covered with drug that it’s hard to tell for sure. She is 2.9 oz and 1.95” by 1.7” by 1.1”. The rhombohedron is a natural crystalline state for calcite and manganocalcite, but usually they have a number of other expressions and are cleaved form large, massive deposits. The cleaving will be along the rhombic lines … believe it or not, if you drop a calcite or manganocalcite on the floor (and DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME), it will break into natural rhombohedrons! She is a gorgeous, soft pink and for a special treat, put her under a black light (ultraviolet) and her manganocalcite turns a HOT pinkish red while her calcite is hot pink! She has an unassuming look when you first gaze on her that belies the intense energy and immense crystalline energy she exhibits! You simply have to give her a chance to show her beauty and she will reward you splendidly!
She is part of a shipment of wonderful crystals from Kosovo and I have to admit to being both fascinated and blown away by the diversity and the energy! Calcite and manganocalcite are similar in energies, but manganocalcite is more intense and in her accelerates the change aspects, but in a very refined and focused way yet, gently and soothingly. She energizes you for the transition so that not only do you look forward to it, but you embrace it with every fiber of your being. It as a critical step and is symbolic of the process we go through in setting up a communication with our Higher Self. Her siderite and pyrite provide balancing and protection and her calcite reinforces the change for the benefit of her Keeper. It begins with the physical, often with a profound healing challenge such as a serious illness or accident. In the healing process, we learn that we are more than our physical Self and begin to expand our mind in order to facilitate the healing. As we grow in our abilities, our Higher Self gains a larger voice and activates much more easily. This is the Self that guides and nurtures – that teaches us to trust those ‘voices’” inside that some call ‘gut feeling’ or intuition. This Spirit teaches us to truly feel with our heart and speak with the truth of the Soul!
