Quartz var. Rose
Ilha claim, Taquaral, Itinga, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Miniature, 5.4 x 4.0 x 3.6 cm

This is a lovely Rose Quartz miniature from the Pitorra Claim in Brazil. It features over a dozen sublime, pastel pink crystals with good size, luster and translucency. The aesthetic group of rather large crystals consists of 1 to 2 cm, glassy, two-tone, light to medium pastel pink crystals that are translucent at their base and transition to transparent tips. There are even a few doubly terminated crystals in this group. There is only contacting on the bottom where it was attached to the pocket, otherwise complete all around without any damage and is very three-dimensional. A nicely composed and aesthetic Rose Quartz piece among so many plain simple Rose Quartz specimens.
