well, let's consider that, in terms of size and aesthetics, many consider 'la madona rosa' to be the best specimen of crystallized rose quartz in the world, so several hundreds K$ were to be expected I guess. For comparison, three years earlier than that, the 'Laurent' fluorite had been bought for the french NMNH at 250K€ (roughly 340K$ at that time) while a lebanese private collector had offered twice that amount for it. Common species at their best.
