    This rock looks like quartz but I did not see any matches. I could always go to where I bought it as it is a nice little rock shop up here on the mountain. Just watch out for the Dalmatian. Harmless but it is large and can startle one.
    This rock has a very glass like texture. Haven't added a new piece to the rock collection for some time and this seems a fine addition.

    4. SpiritBear, 5 years ago
      I'm on a tiny screen, but it looks like mixed Rose Quartz to me. Its one of the three main colours, and the fracturing looks correct.

      Thank you very much Rose. Looks close but isn't as glassy as this rock.

      Thank you very much nutsabotas6. Let me check google images. I see a similarity but not it.
    7. fortapache fortapache, 5 years ago
      Thank you very much aura. Seems like the right tract but not it again.
    8. fortapache fortapache, 5 years ago
      Thank you very much SpiritBear but this orange and white.
    9. fortapache fortapache, 5 years ago
      I could be mistaken and it could be one of these.

      Exciting news. At the rock shop I was told it is calcite.
