Rose quartz can be transparent but is most frequently translucent. The natural pink color of rose quartz is relatively rare among minerals. It is photosensitive and can fade in sunlight. Rose quartz is considered a semi-precious stone and is commonly known as the "Love Stone" or the "Heart Stone".
Rose quartz ranges in color from light pink to rose red but is usually very pale and delicate powder pink.
Rose quartz is found in Brazil and the United States.
