Quartz (Var: Rose Quartz)
Sapucaia Mine, Sapucaia do Norte, Galileia, Doce Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Miniature, 5.0 x 3.7 x 3.4 cm
Rose Quartz from this mine is now almost 40 years out of the ground and is rarer in the market, at least in quality, than most people think. This is, to me, the BEST miniature I have ever seen of the classic material, with the elegant form of a flower perched on a bit of matrix. YES, the color really is this deep - top percentile, that! 5 x 3.7 x 3.4 cm
