Rose Quartz is the name for opaque to translucent macro-crystalline Quartz that is light to dark pink in colour.
There are now two distinct types of Rose Quartz:
1. COMMON ROSE QUARTZ
The first is what we traditionally know as Rose Quartz. Common Rose Quartz only ever forms in massive (i.e. lacking any distinct crystal shapes).
Recent testing of common Rose Quartz shows nanofibers of pink Dumortierite included in the Quartz material are responsible for the colour, and not titanium, iron or manganese as previously believed. When polished, these fibres sometimes create an optical effect in the Quartz called a star asterism, similar to Sapphire. Rose Quartz with a visible star asterism is known as Star Rose Quartz.
Common Rose Quartz can also occur with certain colour hues: reddish (Hematite inclusions), blueish (blue Dumortierite inclusions) or grey (with Graphite inclusions or after irradiation exposure).
2. CRYSTALLINE ROSE QUARTZ
The second type of Rose Quartz forms distinct crystals.
Considered very rare, so far this crystalline Rose Quartz is only found in Brazil. Generally seen as pale pink crystals growing over Smoky Quartz crystals in small parallel groups. This Rose Quartz is believed to get its colour from irradiation and not nanofibre inclusions as with common massive Rose Quartz.

Rose Quartz gently draws off negative energy and replaces it with loving vibes. It can help restore trust and harmony in relationships.
