Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz from Madagascar with very subtle pink tone and a lot of streaking. A few internal phantom planes that flash with oil slick color in sunlight. This is an interesting material to make coins from because most of us known Rose Quartz as being a somewhat saturated pink color. The pink is the result of color saturation due to thickness, and when you cut materials like this thin the color decreases in opacity significantly.

Held up to light coming through the window in front of me, this coin appears clear, but it becomes very easy to see the large number of interesting crystal planes. When laid down on paper it again shows a subtle pink tone.

Catalog #: 

The catalog number is unique to each individual Lithicoin, and allows your coin to be accessed at any time by typing this number into the search field on our site.

Material Origin:

This is the location where a Lithicoin's material is sourced. We are as specific as possible in the main coin description when we know more about origin (sometimes we will know a specific mine location), but we try to at least note the country. Sometimes we may not know the origin of a particular piece of material, and these coins are marked as "Unknown."

Coin Size:

Standard size for Lithicoin stone specimens is approximately 32mm x 3mm (1.25"x0.11" or 1 3/4" x 1/8"). Size can vary by about .5mm (one half millimeter) due to being hand carved from a natural material.

Opacity:

Opacity refers to the translucency of a coin material when backlit. Materials that do not allow light to pass through are considered "Opaque." If light passes through a part or all of a Lithicoin, it is considered "Partially or fully translucent."

Durability:

Our durability ratings are designed to help you understand how a Lithicoin should be handled. We use the following ratings as suggestions, but please understand that we can make no guarantees about the actual durability of any natural material.

Pocket Safe: This Lithicoin is suitable for frequent handling or daily carry without the case. Try to minimize the number of additional hard objects carried in your pocket or bag (metal coins, etc.) to minimize the chance of breakage or scratches. Many stones are harder than the metals in our everyday lives, but we prefer a cautious approach.

Handle with care outside of case: This Lithicoin can be removed from the case and handled but should not be pocket carried. Exercise caution to avoid drops, and do not apply pressure or any twisting motions.

Fragile, case recommended: This Lithicoin has physical characteristics such as fragile crystal coverage, internal seams or planes, geode sections, or is a brittle material that can be easily scratched or broken. These coins should not be removed from their cases unless you intend to sit down and carefully enjoy them.

We can't predict every scenario a coin might encounter, and natural materials can be unpredictable. We do not provide any guarantee or warranty in the event of damage.
