Rose quartz tumbled stones a firm favourite with mineral collectors and those interested in crystal healing. A pink variety of the mineral quartz which is widely used as a lapidary material, rose quartz is relatively hard and exhibits a vitreous lustre which is also part of the reason why it's popular as a gemstone.
The varying shades of pink that can be seen in the mineral rose quartz have long been considered to be caused by impurities of iron, manganese and titanium but a study in recent years has cast doubt on whether these minerals are the sole cause of the pink colouration. During the 1990's this study concluded that the colour of rose quartz may actually be due to microscopic inclusions of a pink borosilicate mineral that's related to dumortierite. The fibres that were discovered were subsequently named dididumortierite.
Rose quartz often exhibits some degree of translucency and when used in jewellery, tends to be cut as a cabochon. Faceted stones are not seen that often because despite having a degree of translucency, stones are often cloudy which becomes more apparent after they have been faceted.
Rose quartz tumbled stones are popular for use in alternative therapies such as crystal healing. Rose quartz is used for matters of the heart, tranquility and beauty and is considered to be a stone of unconditional love.
