# Pinkish quartz like. Help identifying and if it is worth anything? [closed]

I recently purchased a home, in the fireplace surround that I tore down were several rocks (quartz) that I thought were unique.

I am looking for identification help and if they were worth anything. Most larger than a soft ball and some are larger than a football, but not as pink.

• Try to scratch it with a knife, and then wipe off any marks with your finger. Do you still see a scratch on it? – Gimelist May 15 '17 at 22:55

It's definitely rose quartz. $4-$15 US dollars per pound. from a quick google search.
