We have all heard of star rubies and sapphires, but this is a different take on that: it is a smooth, perfectly formed sphere that has a bright, white, 6-ray star that is almost the full diameter of the sphere.  The white rays contrast well with the colorful, luminous rose quartz.  The star is visible but not strong – just rotate the sphere until you find a white line, then follow that around to the star.  The cause of asterism is microscopic inclusions of rutile needles in the rose quartz.  No damage.
