Rose Quartz description

Rose quartz is a light pink to rose-red variety of common quartz. It can be transparent to translucent. It is usually found in massive form and less commonly found as crystals.

It is considered a semi-precious stone and is often used in jewelry, carved into small sculptures or as a decorative stone in rough or polished form. Rose quartz is a good tumbling rough for beginners or experienced tumblers. It is usually a solid material without voids that accepts a very high polish. It has a hardness of seven and tumbles well with other quartz materials, agates and jaspers. It is widely sold as a tumbling rough.
