Re: Possible piece of Rose quartz
Hi Randy, I am from South Dakota originally and have a few pieces of rose quartz. I also have quartz that looks like your picture. Both are from the Black Hills of SD. Rose quartz is generally a pretty consistent light rose color through and through. The material I have that is like yours in the picture has a variety of colors running from white to some reddish streaks. This area SD will give you all kinds of combinations from solid white to solid rose. It is all pretty common too. White quartz is known to carry gold. White quartz that is found at or near the surface can have a "zone" of other materials on it from contact with the surface and air.
