Item Description

Unusual material with a strange pink-blush color caused by an unknown inclusions, these are recent finds from a few years ago. The color is clearly different from Rose Quartz, as it's a softer pastel hue that almost resembles manganese-bearing Calcite. Most such specimens have small crystals, but this unusual piece has big thick crystals in the middle, and displays well. The crystals themselves are unusual, as if the inclusion disrupt growth and cause interesting, subtle patterns and growth distortions. It is not sparkly and yet somehow, it is beautiful. A great example from an unusual find (we are not even aware of an exact mine name as yet ).
