Rose Quartz Scepter on Quartz
From a superb pocket of unusually intense rose quartz for this classic old locality, found in 2009, this is perhaps the best thumbnail specimen. And, for my taste, frankly the most aesthetic and interesting rose quartz i have EVER seen form the USA (and for pedigree, this locality long predates the modern Brazilian material as the historic locale of choice for rose quartz). This specimen hosts a flowing scepter of rose quartz, VERY pink, atop a core of white quartz. It is striking. You could simply not ask for a better rose quartz in thumbnail sized specimen, taking into account the aesthetics, symmetry, full TN size, and import of the locality. From the specialized Maine thumbnail collection of Jim Mann, and perhaps my favorite piece in the small lot I obtained after he sold a number of pieces to yet another thumbnail collector recently. Honestly, I'm tempted to go greedy and double the price. It is a SUPERB thumbnail, and just floored me when I realized it was from Maine, when i instinctively went to it thinking it was Brazilian.
