If it’s colour you seek, then this deliciously pink Rhodonite, dusted with sparkling micro-crystals of colourless Quartz, may be just the tonic! Wow, what a vibrant shade of pink it is, probably best described as a strawberry and cream milkshake, with both colours blended into one. From the Chiurucu mine in Dos de Mayo Province, Peru, the Rhodonite forms wafer-thin blades up to 2 cm long, completely intergrown to form a hackly-textured miniature. A rich dusting of sucrosic Quartz crystals adds another layer of texture, colour and opulence to this delightful specimen.
