Rose quartz

Rose quartz is a translucent pink to rose-red variety of quartz. It is rarely found as a crystal and is far more common in massive form.

Among gemstones, rose quartz is considered a semiprecious stone that may be used in jewelry. Rose quartz stones that are nearly transparent are sometimes cut to make flat surfaces called facets, to better reflect light.
