The Rose Quartz used for these pieces were mined by Robert Michael at the abandoned Clara May Mine near Buena Vista, Colorado. The vast majority of the Rose Quartz in this location is very opaque / cloudy, and not suitable for gem cutting. However, Robert realized there were small portions in some of the crystals that were gem quality. He cut away the cloudy portion of one crystal which revealed a very clear piece of Rose Quartz. Using that clean material, he then faceted this 10mm Asscher-cut square gem weighing 3.4 carats and set it in a Sterling Silver Pendant.
We recommend either a 20", or 24" Medium Rope Sterling Silver Chain, #1125, for this Pendant.
Please be aware that the items in our photos are often much larger than actual. This is done intentionally to give you a closeup view.
