The rose quartz here is worth the price on its own, I think! Moreover, radiating clusters of lustrous eosphorite crystals up to .5 cm drape over the rich pink, elongated crystals of rose quartz. The silvery-brown eosphorite makes a great contrast against the rose quartz. The rose quartz crystals are unusually long, measuring over 3 cm. This is a Brazilian classic from 30 years ago. Few specimens are so richly coated as this one, or so pretty as a result. 7 x 5.6 x 3.9 cm
