Rose Quartz on Quartz
Galilea, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Cabinet, 10.9 x 7.8 x 3.5 cm
This piece features a soaring crescent of exceptionally good rose quartz crystals arranged vertically and sprayig off of a smoky quartz shard, smothering the top of it and reaching out above. Words and pictures do not convey how brilliantly lustrous and richly flamingo-pink this specimen really is, in person! There is no damage to the display face, and only a few small contacts at either end of the piece. It is large, at just over 4 inches, to have such consistent quality! No pastel hue, this. It is as deep pink as rose quartz can get.
