This is pink amethyst, sometimes known by the trade-name of 'Rose de France' which makes it sound rather grandiose. It's actually just light coloured amethyst, which is less expensive than the more saturated material. It is very pretty, however, and due to the price, you can go large without it breaking the bank. The material is Brazilian and it is not hard to find clean stones in large sizes. It does have a saturation range and I try to stock stones that retain good colour even in small sizes.
