A carefully chosen opaque rose quartz sphere from our exciting collection of crystals rocks and minerals. This sphere is the actual piece you will receive.
Rose quartz is one of the most popular of all decorative stones due to its tantalising pink colour. The shade of pink varies widely and stones can be translucent to opaque. Dense inclusions within rose quartz are the reason for some stones being opaque.
For many years it was believed the colour of rose quartz was caused by titanium, manganese and iron. Following a series of studies however in the late 1990's, it was discovered that microscopic pink fibres of a mineral similar to dumortierite were more likely to be the reason for the stone's colour.
This polished rose quartz sphere is standing on a hematite ring. These rings make elegant stands for mineral spheres but hematite is brittle so if knocked or dropped it's likely to shatter. The ring is available to buy separately.
