Looks like rose quartz. Quartz comes in a variety of shades, not just colors. You can have milky looking rose quartz and you can have opaque as well as translucent. If this were manganocalcite (pink calcite) then that's a good find and worth a bit. If it were pink opal the same thing applies, great find, maybe a nice little bit o' cash. But in most cases with rocks that aren't specifically mined, they are a mixture of other types of minerals. So rose quartz + calcite or some such milky rock sounds extremely probable to me.

If it is not a Calcite like AngelicPride and Gem17 said, I would also look into lower grade Pink Opal too. Of course that would be a HUGE chunk of Pink Opal and probably worth a bit (not a lot just because of the grade level of stone but still). Most Opal people find in jewelry is usually the higher grade or at least the lab-created kind and typically holds that famous shine and reflective tone in its various colors. In the lower grades (like Pink Opal for example) is becomes more solid and not as reflective in fragments.

Calcite comes in many different colors but will typically maintain that cloudy colored look with occasional bands of solid creamy white running through it. I think one of the more common forms of Calcite is Orange Calcite but it will appear fairly common in greens too.

Nearly all Quartz related stones will either be clear (see-through) with coloring or will have coloring and design similar to the various "laced" stones (Crazy Laced Agate, Banded Amethyst, etc.). Even stones like Kiwi Jasper still show where the Quartz runs through them. Rose Quartz can be a more solid pink but will still have that glassy/foggy affect that is common for that stone.

Some Rocks are harder to identify when in different grades due to their ability to closely resemble those of similar minerals. Polished stones will sometimes differ slightly from unpolished ones too. If you are interested in keeping it you may vary well want to take it to a Gemstore that has someone who could identify it. You may be happily surprised with your find. :)

That's what it seems like to me. I just got my piece out from where I had it outside, and it looks very similar to this one. Mangano Calcite is your best bet, but you should take it to a store specializing in metaphysics or crystals before doing any work with it.


That's what raw rose quartz looks like. If it was rose quartz, it would be extremely rough on the surface, and extremely shiny due to the crystalization.

Looks a calcite. I would say it is a raw mangano calcite.

Well it sure is a lot better than a piece of flesh to be honest.. It still features Rose quartz energy to me but it has other qualities as well it seems more like a crossed piece of rose quartz and milky quartz together ;-)

yeah it does look like flesh its creepy looking and sometimes gross. I will have to look that stone up to see what its attributes are. Thanks Angelic

Oh! It looks like Pink Calcite to me. Much too fleshy looking for rose quartz.

huge rock found outside my house.. have no clue if it is anything special or not but it looks like flesh when you walk past it and take a quick glance. Sometimes its gross. If it isn't any type of special stone then Im going to put it back outside. I just took it because I thought maybe it was a special stone or type of rock
