Rose Quartz Information
Rose Quartz is a variety of quartz found in less amount but readily available. People can accept a certain amount of dust and sand in their lives but what they might be aware of are mostly quartz, one of the most common minerals on earth. We can find many attractive and well-known quartz varieties. Rose quartz is one of the many quartzes used as a gem material. It has found its name from its delicate pink color, which starts from very light to medium dark. One of the most appealing colors which is found in larger size and small rose quartz specimens with good color are very rare.
According to research, it has been found that rose quartz has a delicate pink color and some microscopic inclusions that are aligned silicate minerals fibers. Advanced testing has shown that they’re generally but not identical to the mineral dumortierite. The fibers are crystal like and out as the host gem cooled, and they’re aligned according to the crystal directions of the rose quartz.
Rose quartz contains mineral inclusions that give it a soft pink color. Rose quartz beads, cabochons and rough makes an exciting arrangement in e-commerce store of astrokapoor. This is a pastel gem inclusion which gives it a characteristics cloudy appearance, so it’s generally cut into beads and cabochons. The most transparent rose quartz roughly comes from Brazil. Other sources of Rose Quartz include India, Madagascar, and Sri Lanka.
Material from some of the rose quartz mines have been found but it fades when exposed to natural light but the color is restored by irradiation. The scientific research has been found by Russian crystal growers on synthetic pink quartz and has demonstrated a color-causing mechanism, which can cause results similar to the natural rose quartz. Some of the impurities present in them are replaced by silicon quartz lattice and subsequent irradiation produces color centers that give the crystal its pink color.
