Rose Quartz

'If an evil spirit had to hide from God, it would hide in a diamond. If an angel had to hide from the Devil, it would hide in rose quartz'

What is Rose Quartz?

Quartz is a chemical compound consisting of one part silicon and two parts oxygen and iis known as silicon dioxide (SiO2). It is the most abundant mineral found at Earth's surface. Its unique properties make it one of the most useful natural substances.

The pink colour of rose quartz is due to microscopic inclusions of a pink variety of the mineral dumortierite. These inclusions are usually abundant enough to make the rose quartz translucent instead of transparent. Transparent crystals are clear. Translucent crystal allows only some light to pass through them.

Pink transparent quartz is rare but found in several locations around the world. Many people believe that pink transparent quartz should be called "pink quartz" instead of "rose quartz" because the cause of the colour is different.
