Rose Quartz Emma Eggs
A Rose Quartz emma egg is an interesting way to show off the stone – a piece of Rose Quartz is roughly tumbled, and then has a single polished window ground into the stone. It creates a beautiful stone that looks almost like a river pebble with a slice cut off, revealing the colours inside.
Emma Eggs look amazing with light coming through them – in a box frame with LED lights, or a display in front of a window is a great way to show off the gorgeous purple shades.
These pieces are between 25-50MM at their longest point, usually around 40MM approximately. Being a natural gemstone, there can be a range of size and colour variations.
Emma eggs have a variety of names, including ‘window pebbles’, ‘dragons eggs’, or ‘seer stones’. There is a story going around online telling how they are called ’emma eggs’ after the ‘Ema River’ in Brazil, where this tumbling process supposedly happened naturally but I cannot find any evidence of that – or that an Ema river even exists!
