Quartz (Var: Rose Quartz)
Sapucaia Mine, Sapucaia do Norte, Galileia, Doce Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Miniature, 5.0 x 3.7 x 3.0 cm
Some of the finest crystallized Rose Quartz in the world is found in Brazil. This is a superb specimen featuring gem quality, lustrous, pink color crystals (one of them features a crystal within a crystal). Typically even small Rose Quartz crystals have a bit of a "milky" quality to them, but some of the crystals on this specimen are virtually water-clear. This specimen is about 20 years old (from the mid-1980s) .
