English: Albite, Quartz
Locality: Tacqueral,Minas Gerais, Brazil
Size: cabinet, 9.7 x 7.2 x 4.2 cm
A really remarkable speicmen! Most rose quartzes from this locality are pale, elongated crystals of quite different habit than we see from tacqueral and other localities. This is no exception - it is a pale pastel pink hue and strangely elongated. Its just on steroids! It is also doubly-terminated! The aesthetics are very nice, as it is perched smartly on a very nicely balanced rhombic shard of feldspar. I think this is among the more significant (for crystal quality and size) of rose quartz specimens, if not among the most expensive or the most pink
