Comment: Rose Quartz is the pink variety of Quartz whose color is caused by Titanium. The material is beloved for its unique pink color which ranges from a soft pink to a rather rich vivid pink from some localities. Rose Quartz stones are often used in cabochons as the material is rarely clean enough for faceted gems, because the majority of it is "milky" or "cloudy". This particular stone has great clarity for a Rose Quartz. It is a very impressive, very slightly "milky", light pink color gem with an "Oval" cut. A great gem for any collector.
