Quartz var. Rose Quartz
Taquaral, Itinga, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Miniature, 4.6 x 4.2 x 3.3 cm

This flowerlike cluster of lustrous and translucent, bright pink rose quartz crystals, to 1.3 cm in length, exhibits a rich, saturated color. The color is really extraordinary, at the top range for this material, which is often considered the best rose quartz from modern (relatively) Brazilian finds. This is from the 1990s.
