The crystal habit of rose quartz is mostly massive which means crystals are tightly intergrown to form one large mass. Crystals that grow in this way have no external shape or distinguishable faces. Individual crystals in this type of rose quartz have never been found.
Well formed crystals do grow in a pink variety of quartz but the mineral which is quite rare, is not exactly the same as rose quartz. For this reason it tends to be known as pink quartz. One of the main differences is the pink colour is very sensitive to light.
The richness of colour in rose quartz can vary quite significantly but it's generally not believed to be sensitive to light. With that said, if possible it shouldn't be placed in direct sunlight.
The rough texture and distinctive shape of these rose quartz arrowheads makes them particularly interesting to work with. Rose quartz is widely used for its metaphysical healing properties and is considered to be the ultimate stone of love and friendship.
Rose quartz arrowheads are particularly suitable for wire wrapping or jewellery making. With each stone having been cut by hand from a larger piece of quartz, weights and sizes do vary slightly from piece to piece.
