   Rose quartz is a pink-colored variety of quartz that is often cloudy or opaque due to microscopic mineral inclusions. The color is typically caused by trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese within the crystal structure. Rose quartz is typically found in pegmatites, granite, and hydrothermal veins, and it often forms in large masses or as prismatic crystals. The crystal structure of rose quartz is characterized by its six-sided prism shape and pointed terminations, and it is often used in decorative objects or jewelry due to its attractive pink color.

Rose quartz has been used for thousands of years for its beauty and its perceived healing properties. The ancient Greeks and Romans believed that rose quartz could bring love and attract new relationships, while some Native American cultures believed that it could bring peace and harmony to its wearer. Today, rose quartz is still highly prized for its beauty and is commonly used in jewelry and decorative objects. Madagascar is a major source of high-quality rose quartz, with the Ilakaka region being particularly famous for its deposits.
