What is Rose Quartz?
Rose Quartz is a variety of Quartz that comes in the coloration of pale pink to rose-red. The gem can be transparent to opaque. Some opaque varieties can display asterism, which is pointed lines resembling a star that moves in the light.
The best quality gem is transparent and will usually be cut into a faceted gem. Opaque Rose Quartz can be faceted but will typically be shaped into cabochons. Rose Quartz with Asterism will be shaped into cabochons or spheres as those are the best shape to display the rays of light inside the stone.
Quartz is the second-most abundant mineral on Earth, second only to feldspar. Quality gemstone varieties of Rose Quartz mostly come from Brazil. The best quality Star Rose Quartz stones are from Madagascar. Other places that mine Rose Quartz are Mozambique, Germany, India, and South Africa.
In most stones, the coloration is brighter in large stones. The pale pink coloration is so pale that smaller stones will display pink in a lighter tone.
Rose Quartz is a seven on the MOH scale of gemstone hardness. That means it is a fairly tough stone, good for everyday wear, although all gemstones should be protected from hard knocks when possible.
Rose Quartz is the celebratory gemstone of the fifth wedding anniversary. It is also the alternative birthstone of January.
History of Rose Quartz
Early history shows that Rose Quartz beads have been found as long ago as 7000 BC. In the way that Jade has been revered and carved through history in Asia and South America, Quartz has been used similarly in Europe and the Middle East. Vases, jewelry, and other prized items were produced until the early 19th century.
Throughout cultures, Rose Quartz was used as an anti-aging stone. Egyptians used the stone as facial massage pieces to help combat wrinkles and rejuvenate skin. Tibetian and Chinese cultures also used the stone, as it was thought to help heal the heart from lost love.
The Heart Stone
Rose Quartz is one of the most used gemstones in metaphysics. It has an abundance of healing qualities, including being the heart stone.
Rose Quartz is thought to open the heart to love, including romantic love and love in friendship and family. It helps the wearer to receive love from others and the universe.
Rose Quartz is a purifier and helps to promote the deep healing of emotions. It encourages self-love, worth, and esteem.
Systemically, Rose Quartz helps the circulatory system and heart. It also helps to promote fertility and give protection to mother and child during pregnancy.
Alternatives to Rose Quartz
Morganite is a pink blush stone that is similar to Rose Quartz but is always transparent. It is in the same mineral family as Emerald is. The hardness of Morganite exceeds Rose Quartz. Morganite is typically a more peach tone than Rose Quartz.
Also in the Quartz family, Pink Quartz is the same hardness as Rose Quartz on the MOH scale. Pink Quartz is different than Rose Quartz in that it is much more rare than Rose Quartz. Pink Quartz can lose its coloration in the sun and is a much more delicate stone and an unusual choice for jewelry.
This gemstone is well known for its variety of pink tones. From soft baby pink to deep magenta, you can choose a stone from a variety of pinks. Pink Tourmaline is a clear, usually inclusion-free stone that is a popular variety in gemstone making. In fact, Pink Tourmaline often comes in several tones in a single gem, giving your stone an ombre look.
Pink Sapphire is classified as a Ruby in general terms, as all red corundum is ruby. However, because it is lighter in coloration than the red ruby, jewelers may sell Pink Sapphire as such. The price of the stone will depend on the classification of the gemologist who graded the stone.
This purple-pink transparent gemstone can be found in large carat sizes as an affordable but less abundant alternative to Rose Quartz. The coloration of this gemstone is more toward the purple side, and there are lovely examples of lavender stones. This gemstone is also available in opaque varieties, just like Rose Quartz.
