Rose quartz displaying asterism (the star effect) is rare; asterism occurs when the quartz contains rutile needles.
What are some of the properties of star rose quartz gemstones?
The unique soft pink color of rose quartz gems is thought to derive from tiny traces of titanium impurities. Rose quartz gemstones tend to be cloudy which deepens the color; transparent crystals are extremely rare. The translucent milky quality of rose quartz make it ideal for cutting en cabochon or carving in inventive ways.
What are good ways to use star rose quartz gemstones?
Star rose quartz is great to collect and could be used in jewelry as a pendant.
Great selection. Love the many learning features like articles and gem information. Prices competitive for natural stones. I do miss not having a selection of lab-made stones, CZ’s, etc, which are useful when price and cost are factors.
