Mangano Calcite is a form of calcite with super high levels of magnesium, giving it the gorgeous pink color. It is a super soft stone with a hardness of 3. In folklore is it seen as the "stone of love", giving it a nice pink color when the one carrying it is in love, and fading shall the lovers fall out of love. It is said to help one analyze & illuminate changes that need to be made in one's life, but with a loving heart and a loving mind.

It has tiniest of inclusions of Chalcopyrite on theback side, acopper iron sulfide mineral that crystallizes in the tetragonal system, energetically thought to calm nervous energy. It also has little baby crystals growing in the back side, I am unsure exactly what mineral it is! See last photo.
