Rose Quartz belongs to the microcrystalline quartz family, which also includes Rock Crystal, Amethyst, Citrine, and Smokey Quartz. Rose Quartz ranges in color from a very pale pink to a dark rose hue. The color is believed to be due to trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese. Rose Quartz is found in Madagascar, India, Germany, South Africa, and several localities in the USA.
Due to its soft color, it has long been regarded as a soothing, calming crystal that promotes love and healing.
