Rose Quartz is pink quartz, ranging from pale pink to a deep rose color. It derives its coloration from titanium, iron or manganese, depending on location. Most often found growing in slabs or masses, it will occasionally grow in crystal form as clusters of tiny pink terminated crystals. Most usually mined in Brazil, it was first discovered in Maine. The finest examples of Rose Quartz are from Madagascar and have a rich, deep pink coloration, many times showing with what is referred to as “stars”. These stars, also known as asterisms, are created from microscopic rutile needles within the Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz contains a great sweetness and gentleness unlike any other stone. It is the first of the Heart Chakra stones to begin the healing process of the heart that holds childhood scares from deep emotional wounds.
