Rose Quartz derives its name from its pretty rose-pink colour, and from the Greek word ‘hyalos’, which means glass. The rose quartz crystal comes in different and beautiful shades of pink. Rose quartz and other stones and crystals are formed when magma is pushed towards the earth’s crust and combines with different minerals along the way.
When this magma cools down, the different elements and minerals are bonded together to form a quartz crystal.
Rose Quartz is also known as pink quartz or hyaline quartz. It’s often a large translucent mass, usually coarsely crystalline and without external faces.
