Rose Quartz Crystal Mineral Specimen - Brazil
Beautiful Rose Quartz crystal mineral specimen from Brazil. This collectors specimen has sparkling fine Rose Quartz druzy crystals which formed on its natural matrix (mother) stone with muscovite mica, a pearly shiny luster mineral. Some of the world's finest Rose Quartz is sourced in Brazil.
The beauty of this particular mineral specimen is in its rare formation. Rose Quartz almost always grows in anhedral form and texture, meaning with no well-form crystal faces, facets or points. For example, Rose Quartz points are not naturally formed, they are cut into that shape by gem cutters. Unlike other varieties of Quartz crystals that have well-defined crystal faces, facets and points, this type of crystal form is known as euhedral. Rose Quartz is rarely found in euhedral formation with defined crystals or druzy crystals such as the characteristics displayed in this mineral specimen. It's this rare euhedral crystalline form that makes this mineral specimen an exquisite collectors piece.
Due to this difference in how the mineral grows, anhedral vs euhedral, it's been suggested that Rose Quartz in euhedral (crystalline) formation should be renamed to Pink Quartz. Currently both names are used in the gem industry to describe this rare variety.
