Pink Rose Quartz on Albite, Pink Rose Quartz on AlbiteI remember seeing some of these specimens around 2006, and they certainly made an impact on me due to their amazing similarity to the classic and famous Rose Quartz specimens from Brazil.
The piece is absolutely perfect and is a truly remarkable very aesthetic piece, Superb stunning matrix piece with smoky Rose quartz and silver mica sits right on top of the white albite.
there are only a handful of localities where well-crystallized display specimens such as this are found.
Afghanistan is obviously not what comes to mind when one thinks of Rose Quartz specimens, and this piece is a great example of how certain pegmatites on opposite sides of the planet can resemble one another.
The piece is very beautiful and in excellent condition with great quality and aesthetics.
