We rarely see Rose Quartz from Burma (or from anywhere but Brazil for that matter) and this is a very nice elongate "starburst" of crystals. This miniature cluster consists of dozens of well-formed, radiating, transparent to translucent, delicate pink crystals. The points are in excellent condition and there is only one contact in the back where the the cluster was attached and where the crystals radiate from. This cluster consists of crystals to 1 cm and is almost flower-like in both appearance and beauty. If it were from Brazil, it would be quite nice, but for Burma it is a real surprise. And, with this label and provenance, it really is from Burma. Mark Mauthner photo.
