Pink quartz - rose quartz - images of crystals

Pink quartz is a very rare crystal and expensive too. Pink quartz usually is to be seen by collectors being a very attractive ornamental crystal and now, you can see it on my photos.
Rose quartz is very special too; because of it's energizing properties and beautiful pink color it is the symbol of love.
Rose pink quartz crystalMany years ago I bought a pink quartz crystal in an art store, the big one in the picture.
I had no idea at that time that pink quartz is so rare . It is in my living room for such a long time that I take no notice of it any more.
Today I was looking for pink things in the house for Beverly's Pink Saturday meme, when I remembered about my crystals and gemstone collection.

Pink quartz and rose quartz are not the same.
There are some differences between these two types of quartz concerning their properties:
- pink quartz develops crystals while rose quartz is usually massive.
- pink quartz is sensitive to light, it fades if exposed to direct light, while rose quartz does not, because:
Pink quartz crystal formation-they form in different environments and the cause of their color is different.

Rose Quartz Crystal is called "the love stone" and is the crystal stone for the heart Chakra. This special stone is full of beauty, peacefulness, forgiveness and compassion.
Rose quartz has a range of color from a pale pink to rose red hue, like the rose quartz crystal ball, the necklace and earrings in the picture.

Rose quartz is an emotional balancer, help remove repressed anger and hatred, negative emotions and thoughts reestablishing a feeling of calm.
Rose quartz is also carved into pyramids, statues, obelisks, figurines and spheres being a very attractive ornamental stone.

Crystals and gemstones
I hope you like this beautiful stone too and take advantage of it's amazing effect of inspiring feelings of love and friendship.

I'm a day late and a dollar short☺ Was able to leave some messages for Pink Saturday yesterday and finishing up today. Over the holidays I was MIA from PS and really missed it but knew that I wouldn't be able to visit many blogs. I'm back today and must say that it feels so good to visit familiar places - like coming home again.

Today you made my little, pinkie ♥ smile. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely blog. Hoping this next week is filled with sunshine and the laughter of friends and family☺
