Extraordinary two generations aggregate of Calcite crystals. First generation of dark and opaque calcite crystal of 17 cm long covered with palygorskite and romanèchite.   Large twinned (fish tail) of the first calcite generation is coated on front face with white palygorskite and on the side with romanèchite, the black manganese oxide. The first dark calcite generation enriched with manganese strongly fluoresces red in long wave UV. The second generation of calcite, with crystals up to 6 cm, forms a cascade-shaped, high lustrous crystals splendor on the back. Huge contrast between snowy white palygorskite and deep black romanèchite with the second generation of colorless partly translucent calcite crystals on the top of the first one create a spectacular and exquisite cabinet specimen.
