Rose Quartz owes its pink hue to titanium and manganese. Rose quartz is often found in
massive form, marbled with tiny fissures. Gem quality or crystalline rose quartz has a strong,
clear, personal presence. Terminated rose quartz crystals are rare. Star rose quartz hosts
fine rutile needles that refract light to create six-rayed stars. This effect, known as asterism,
is symbolic of the Soul Star (8th chakra) reflected in the Heart (4th) chakra.
Rose quartz fosters self-affinity and the energy of Universal Love.
