"The Lion" Rose Quartz from Brazil

Pitorra Claim, Laranjeiras, Galileia, Minas Gerais, Brazil
140mm x 55mm x 50mm
We call this one "The Lion" because, well, it looks like a pink lion. Rose Quartz from Brazil is highly valued as-is, but this one is particularly special as the form is so unique. It really does look like a lion laying on the ground. You might also say it looks like a pink poodle, but we think it looks more like a lion. Aside from that, the color is quite good with a well saturated, pastel pink color. The crystals are well-terminated with no damage that we can find. The bottom side is contacted with a small piece of clear quartz. Just a great and stand-out specimen!
