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 on the mohs hardness scale. 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.
These particular stones are from the earth in Peru, where they were polished. They are by no means perfect, but they are the best from the most recent batch I purchased. See photos, some have small knicks, scratches, chips. They are light pink, with white banding and some darker colors present as well. SEE PHOTOS!
*They also glow bright neon pink under ultraviolet light!
**These are soft stone, please do not get them wet, & be cautious of contact with other stones as they can be easily scratched. :) take great care of them.
