Rose Quartz - Pretty in Pink!
Rose Quartz is a super stunning gem, with its gorgeous pale pink loveliness. Perfectly flattering against all skin tones, Rose quartz is one of those gemstones that goes with everything! Rose quartz is a macrocrystaline variety of quartz, forming large masses and more rarely, well formed crystals. Usually milky and translucent, it can be clear with a good pink saturation of colour - this is highly prized and commands a good price as a gemstone. It is usually cut en cabochon, but is also cut and faceted with beautiful effect. The stone is also prized for carving and making stunning pieces of sculpture. Rose Quartz can be found in various locations in Germany as well as Brazil. I love Rose quartz - I hope you will enjoy the following examples from Folksy. Starting with some of my designs.......... This design features large nuggets of quartz teamed with labradorite. This design is all about the colour of the stone and the cut of the gems - all closed neatly with a sterling magnetic clasp.
