Its colour is thought to be due to the presence of small amounts of titanium. Crystals of rose quartz are very rare; more usually, massive lumps are found, which can be carved, or cut in cabochon or as beads. Transparent material is uncommon; it is usually cloudy or cracked, partly because it is so brittle. Rutile inclusions in rose quartz may produce a star effect when the stone is cut in cabochon. Rose quartz overcomes heart traumas, attracts love, draws off negative energy & replaces it with loving energy, increases fertility and helps people in change (excellent for mid-life crises, male and female). Rose quartz is the key heart chakra stone, healing physically, emotionally and spiritually.
