Our minerals come from various mines in Peru. Most minerals are not found in nature alone. They sit on so-called "mother rock" and often form "paragenesis" (groups of different minerals one above the other or next to each other). So our minerals are mainly on bedrock and in paragenesis with one or more other minerals that are often found in Peru.
Manganocalcite (Ca CO3):
The calcite has a hardness of 3 and fascinates us with its fantastic colors. In medicine, due to its high calcium content, calcite is one of the most important basic building blocks for a large number of medicines. In addition, calcite is one of the most common minerals in our earth's crust. The Swiss Limestone Alps, the Franconian Jura and above all the Swabian Jura are huge collections of lime or calcite, just like the marble deposits in Italy, the sinter terraces in Turkey and the chalk cliffs off England and the island of Rügen. This list could be continued as desired. The areas where noble orange calcite, citrinocalcite, blue and green calcite are found are, however, limited to a very small area in Mexico. The pink Manganocalcite is mainly found in Peru, where they mostly form beautiful crystal flowers. In addition to the pink stones, there are also partially banded stones.
