Rose Quartz


Geology and History


Rose Quartz is a type of Quartz which exhibits a pale pink to rose red hue.  The colour is usually considered to be due to trace amounts of Titanium, Iron or Magnesium in the massive material.  Some Rose Quartz contains microscopic Rutile needles which produces an asterism (stars) in transmitted light.  Recent X-ray diffraction studies suggest that the colour is also due to think microscopic fibers of possibly Dumortierite within the massive Quartz.

In crystal form (rarely found) it is called Pink Quartz and its colour is thought to be caused by trace amounts of Phosphate or Aluminium.  The colour is crystals is apparently photosensitive and subject to fading.  The first crystals were found in a pegmatite near Rumford, Maine, USA, but most crystals on the market come from Minas Gerais, Brazil.
