Bright Pink Rock

When I was in Cornwall with Jerry a few weeks ago (scroll down a bit to see the relevant blog) we strode manfully through a streambed of loose rocks and mud (the map said it was a footpath, but the rain thought otherwise).  My eye was attracted by a vein of colourful quartz (?) passing through the slatey-schisty metamorphosed rock.  It only took a few minutes of wet scrabbling about to find a piece small enough to bring home that was not already the home of either caddis fly larvae or flatworms, and here it is, for your pleasure:

Pretty colourful huh? Found near Polperro, Cornwall.
