Rose Quartz is the name used for pink specimens of the mineral quartz. It is abundant, common, and found in large quantities at numerous locations around the world. It usually occurs as massive, anhedral occurrences in hydrothermal veins and pegmatites. The pink color of rose quartz had been attributed to titanium, manganese, and iron by a large number of authors for over 100 years but in the 1900’s investigation into the color and asterism of rose quartz was done. The pink color of rose quartz is attributed 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. Some specimens of rose quartz contain a dense network of fine inclusions that align with the gem’s hexagonal crystal structure. As a result, some rose quartz may display asterism in the form of a six-ray star. Rose quartz is the alternate birthstone for January and along with other pink stones, is known as the “stone of love”.
