Strawberry Quartz (South Africa).  Large pieces from 2.3Kg (5lb) to 4Kg (8.8lb). 

 

The name is a little misleading as this material is a dark pink in colour.  When polished there are occasional sparkly metallic specks

due to embedded rutile.  The polished piece (on the right of the photograph) seems to have suffered some compression damage,

hence the white speckles.  If you're familiar with rose quartz this stone is similar and it does appear as though it will work in a similar way.
