Cobalto Calcite - Pink!

I'm not a pink person.  Never was.  I was, however, completely sucked in by pink minerals like these Cobalto Calcite (Cobaltian Calcite) from Morocco that I bought the flat without knowing anything about them.  I always follow my gut and while that may feel scary or ridiculous at times I have never regretted anything from it. 

So I'm researching this mineral and playing with them, loving all colors cobalto comes in.  The pinks range from soft bubble gum pink to lavender pink to salmony pink to grey lavender purple.  The translucency of a mineral is something I love.  Just look last picture and feast your eyes on the pink jellies and salmon roes.  The whites with metallic blue,  purple and bronze on some of these are amazing.  I would have thought they were enhanced if I saw only pictures of them.
