Quartz var. Rose Quartz on Quartz

ID: CC19235
Laranjeira lies in the Taquaral district of eastern Minas Gerais where numerous diggings, quarries and mines abound.  Amongst the large number of classic pegmatite species and gem minerals produced are world-class crystals of rose Quartz, the pink variety of Quartz.  As every collector knows, massive cryptocrystalline Rose Quartz is two a penny, but crystallised specimens are incredibly rare.  Of all the associations and habits of Rose Quartz, this specimen probably ranks in the top category whereby the Rose Quartz crystals encircle a single large crystal of colourless Quartz, with a clarity verging on that of Rock Crystal.  The Rose Quartz crystals are between 1 and 3 mm tall and form a 1 to 2 cm broad ring, or halo, around over three-quarters of the Quartz crystal’s circumference.  The Rose Quartz is an intense rose-pink, capped around the top of the band by creamy sucrosic micro-Quartz crystals.  The specimen is made complete with an excellent sharp termination to the central Quartz crystal.  A wonderful Rose Quartz from Laranjeira in Brazil.
