What is Rose Quartz?
Elegant, feminine and associated with love, the semi-precious gemstone Rose Quartz is amongst the most abundant and desirable of stones in the world. Its typically pale pink hue is easy on the eye thanks to the web of feather inclusions inside each cut and shaped stone, adding a softness that makes for the perfect addition of colour to all kinds of outfits, morning, noon and night.
It's a silicone dioxide crystal that can display quite the range of shades, from soft and pale to deep and reddish pink, owing to the varying traces of manganese, titanium or iron in its natural environment. On mining, it is found in huge stones and, thanks to its distinctively delicate appearance, is easily identified as Rose Quartz no matter the size of the original piece. Once it is cut to shape for jewellery, it is one of the most strikingly elegant gemstones in the world.
