Rose Quartz on Quartz With Eosphorite
Lavra da Ilha, Tacquaral, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Cabinet, 10.2 x 6.6 x 3.9 cm
Ex. Richard Hauck
A really elegant, castellated piece comprised of stairstep rose quartzes shooting up off clear or milky quartzes, all sprinkled with really sahrp, elongated, translucent eosphorite crystals to almost 1 cm in size. It is not a killer rose quartz, perhaps, because the intensity is a little dark - but it IS a very, very good piece for the price, quite impressive, and a fabulous exmaple of this particular old find (associated with the eosphorite) from the late 1970s.
