A rare, top grade Girasol Rose Quartz sphere from Madagascar. Girasol Quartz is often called Moon Quartz or Giraols Opal. They don’t come better than this! Truly stunning.
Girasol Quartz is milky white to translucent in appearance with a soft, glowing quality that seems to radiate from within the stone. The term “girasol” is derived from the Italian word for “sunflower,” alluding to the stone’s captivating play of light.
The most distinctive feature of Girasol Quartz is its chatoyancy, also known as the “girasol effect” or “moonstone effect.” It displays a soft, glowing sheen that appears to move and shift as the stone is rotated or viewed from different angles. The chatoyant effect of Girasol Quartz is caused by the diffraction of light within the stone due to its internal structure. This phenomenon gives the stone a captivating, ethereal appearance
This Girasol weighs 513g – 70mm
