Quartz is an important mineral on earth and makes up one of the most popular gemstone groups in the world of coloured stones. The name ‘quartz’ is thought to be derived from the German word ‘quarz’, which likely originated from the Slavic and Polish words meaning ‘hard’. The name is descriptive in regard to quartz being the definitive mineral that measures 7 on the Mohs scale of hardness.
There are many different varieties of quartz; ‘Rose’ quartz gets it name from the pinkish tinge and ranges in Strong pink to pale pink but with a cloudy or milky appearance. Rose quartz is colored by chemical traces of titanium, iron or manganese.
It is usually found in Brazil, India, Madagascar, Mozambique, Namibia, Sri Lanka and the U.S.A.
