Often associated with love, passion, and romance, rose quartz is a soft lovely shade of pink with hazy to translucent transparency. Also known as the Heart Stone, Rose Quartz may have been used as a love token as early as 600 B.C. and was crafted into precious jewelry by the Assyrians back in 800 B.C. Since then, this beautiful quartz has been passed from civilization to civilization for centuries.
