Strange Pink Crystal From The DRC
by Robyn Stephenson
(Johannesburg South Africa)
Hi Liz I'm actually in need of help please. I recently traveled to the DRC and whilst there found a piece of rough pink rock that I can't find a name for.
I was in a mining area that produces a lot of Malachite and Azurite as residual deposits from the copper that they extract but they said the pink crystal was Cobalt.
I can't find any picture on the web that resembles what I have. It's the most extraordinarily beautiful pink colour and I'd love to start working with it but don't know what I'm dealing with. Can you please direct me to a site that might have loads of pictures of rough crystals in order to try and identify it?
I look forward to hearing from you.
