Decorate your jewelry designs with the gemstone style of these Dakota Stones beads. Rose Quartz is a silicon dioxide crystal and one of the most common varieties of the Quartz family. It is a translucent to transparent stone with a soft pale pink to rose red hue, thought to be derived from trace amounts of titanium, iron or manganese impurities within the stone. Considered by ancient Egyptians and Romans to have powers of beautification and wrinkle protection, Rose Quartz facial masks have been recovered from Egyptian tombs.
Because gemstones are natural materials, appearances may vary from bead to bead.
