Rose Quartz: Pink Tinted Gemstone with Delicate Translucence

Rose quartz is one of the many quartz varieties used as gemstones in jewelry. The color of rose quartz ranges from very light pink (almost white) to medium-dark pink.This pastel gem’s inclusions give it a characteristic cloudy translucence, so it’s generally cut into beads and cabochons. The delicate translucence of rose quartz inspires gem carvers to create dainty or whimsical figures.
