Rose Quartz Piece

$6.00 NZD

Rose Quartz is a pink colour-variety of the mineral quartz. The lovely pink colour of this Brazilian semi-precious gemstone arises from traces of iron and titanium in the quartz.


Quartz is a major constituent of the earth’s crust as well as one of the most important rock-forming minerals. The chemical composition of quartz is silicon dioxide (SiO2) – also known as silica.


A distinctive feature of quartz is its hardness, which means that it polishes well and is not easily broken. The appearance of quartz is variable – it may be coloured or colourless; transparent, cloudy or opaque.
