Good rose quartz specimens are of course very uncommon, making it the most prized quartz variety; and this is a fine specimen! This is from finds in the 1970s-1980s and are long gone from the market. The crystals are tightly massed on a carefully-trimmed band of matrix, and show rich pink color and superb sparkly luster. 6.5 x 3.2 x 3.0 cm
