Rose Quartz Gemstone

The colour of Rose Quartz ranges  from  a very tender pale pink to a delicate powder pink and can be transparent through to translucent.  This gem has adorned ornaments and jewellery since  ancient  times.  Truly  transparent  Rose Quartz is extremely rare, and is usually so pale  that it does not show much colour at all, with  the exception of when it is available in larger sizes. Translucent Rose Quartz, however, is a lot more readily obtainable and unless its colour is especially vibrant, tends to be used for beaded jewellery and carvings.

Rose  Quartz  is  similar  to  other  forms  of  the Quartz family in that it is prone to inclusions and when of a rutile nature can create asterism.  However,  while  most  asterisms  appear  when light hits the gemstone, light needs to be shone  through the gem in order for the asterism to be  visible. 

Known as the gemstone of true love, it is said  that Rose Quartz allows you to get to know your  true self and to love that true self in all its beauty. As Whitney Houston once sang “learning to love  yourself is the greatest love of all”, if you are  struggling with self-esteem then maybe this gem  is for you.
