|Description ||Much is said about the composition of the pink stone at Easter Aquhorthies but I've not been able to find out exactly what it's made from. It's often referred to as Red Jasper or Rose Quartz and less commonly Porphyry. The crystal laid on it for colour-comparison is six and a half inch long haemetite quartz which has itself a delicate pinky-peachy hue.|
Note to self, next time you go, take some unpolished rose quartz for comparison!
Are there any geologists out there who know what this stone is made of and where it originated?
