Peach Manganocalcite, South Africa

Most manganocalcite we've seen is white or off-white. This piece from the Kalahari Fields in South Africa is most definitely a soft, beautiful peach. Therefore we lead with the natural light shot, followed by shortwave, mid-wave, and long wave. Though the long wave fluorescence is not very bright, it is a unique, grape color.
