Pink Rose Quartz Collectors Specimen, Kunar Province, Afghanistan, 55.8g

Regular price $980.00

Gorgeous well-crystallized Pink Rose Quartz fine mineral specimen, with exquisite orchid pink color saturation and unique flower formation. At the top of the "flower" is a second generation of fine crystals with sparkling glassy luster.

Crystallized Pink Rose Quartz is a rare find, it's even more rare and exciting to find it with this delicious shade of sugared gumdrop pink. It's one of only two Pink Quartz pieces that were collected in 2022 from a Tourmaline pocket in the Dara-I-Pech pegmatite field, Kunar Province, Afghanistan.

Pink Rose Quartz occurs as late formations in pegmatite pockets, growing as a second generation of crystals on Smoky Quartz, Milky Quartz, or with other pegmatite minerals such as Tourmaline.

Pink Rose Quartz vs Common Rose Quartz

Pink Quartz or Pink Rose Quartz is a rare euhedral (crystalline) variety of Quartz, it forms terminated crystals and has different physical properties and color origin, compared to common Rose Quartz. Well-crystallized gemmy Pink Rose Quartz mineral specimens are popular with fine mineral collectors. 

Common Rose Quartz, anhedral (mass form), doesn't form terminated crystals. Common Rose Quartz is widely available, sold as rough, or shaped and polished into home decor crystals; points, towers, spheres. Or made into cabochons and beads for jewelry making. 

To differentiate between the two varieties, euhedral (crystalline) Rose Quartz is also called Pink Quartz or Pink Rose Quartz, both names are accepted in the mineral trade.
