Three pretty pink rosettes to glassy rose quartz crystals are aesthetically set in a large vug in bladed albite on this old-time specimen from Newry, Maine. The largest rosette is 8 mm. Fine and uncommon material from this classic US locale for rose quartz, discovered in 1942. Such specimens are very rare and hard to obtain today. Ex. Robert Whitmore Collection.
