Eosphorite on Rose Quartz With Zanazziite
Taquaral, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 5.9 x 4.7 x 3.3 cm
We have all seen eosphorite on RQ combos, of course. These were a mainstay of the mineral market from the late 1970s, and still trickle out on occasion. But THIS superb competition-level specimen has such aesthetics and contrast, it just zoomed out at me the first time I saw it on a collector's shelf and I always wanted it since. I exchanged it from them and now have it for sale, years later. The eosphorite spray is what makes the piece unique - so many of these have lots of eosphorite crystals, but widely dispersed on the matrix and thus lacking the impact you see here of the contrast of both color and geometry. Ex. Dick and Mary Nelson collection.
