Though the largest crystal in this specimen (measuring over 3/4 inch in diameter) is rather heavily damaged, this specimen has a smaller crystal that is in perfect condition with clean faces and edges and exceptional, bright pink color. The damage on the larger specimen shows a black-colored core; there actually seems to be a tiny gap between that core and the bright pink layer that surrounds it! I wonder if it would be possible to flake off that pink to expose the core, just to see what there is to see?
