Pink Fire Quartz

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Unofficial 'trade name' used by crystal dealers.
A quartz containing inclusions of covellite - from Brazil and first shown at the Jewellery shows in Tucson 2005. No unpolished/uncut material has been provided so the origin of this material must be regarded as unknown.
Correspondence with John Koivula of the GIA confirmed that the inclusions were indeed covellite (William C. van Laer information, see http://www.mindat.org/mesg-104-368400.html).
