Calcite from Moscona mine.

Scalenohedral Calcite with inclusions of pyrite and rare sand coating possible response with a nice orange color combined with rosaceo offer their best response under MW.

These rare sands are common to find under many of the samples of fluorite being the cause of an orange response in them and at other times appear as an outer coating as in the sample of these photos.

Estas arenas raras es comun encontrarlas debajo de muchas de las muestras de de fluorita siendo las causantes de una respuesta anarajada en ellas y en otras ocasiones aparecen como un recubrimiento exterior como en la muestra de estas fotos.
