About Cherry Blossom Stone
Cherry blossom stone® consists most likely of white orthoclase with small patches of pink thulite, featuring the coloration of cherry blossoms. A beautiful rock for deco-pieces.
In the internet it is widely known and sold as “Cinnabrite”. However “cinnabrite” is a fantasy name. It may have been derived from the scientific name “Cinnabarite” referring to pinkish red cinnabar. Some people think that cherry blossom stone® is composed of cinnabar and quartz, but that is incorrect.
Another misconception is that “Cinnabrite” would consist of scapolite (white) and “pink epidote”. While it is correct that the pinkish mineral Thulite, forming the dots, is part of the epidote family, it is not epidote. In fact it is Clinozoisite which is one of the variations of zoisite.
