This is another pink specimen of richly colored, lustrous, rose quartz that looks very much like a flower. What makes it extra special is not just the intensity and color, though: rather, the largest crystal measures almost 4 cm in length. The color intensity is unreal, just phenomenal, among the best I have ever seen in Rose Quartz. This piece also has crystals that are HUGE for a rose quartz, where for some reason large crystals are rarely formed. In person, you would agree that this is WAY ABOVE par and highly unusual, and highly attractive. It IS worth the extra cost, compared to others here, although its hard to convey in photos.
