A variety of Quartz

Two varieties of quartz are called "rose quartz".

One is found in translucent masses made of intergrown anhedral crystals. It is always showing a hazy to translucent character due to microscopic fibrous inclusions of a pink borosilicate mineral related to dumortierite (Applin and Hicks, 1987; Goreva et al, 2001), which group leader Rossman names "dididumortierite" (Nadin, 2007). These inclusions are probably the result of an exsolution from an initially homogeneous material. The color of the fibrous mineral as well as the color of rose quartz is stable up to temperatures above 500°C and is also stable in ultraviolet light (Goreva et al, 2001). Rose quartz is dichroic, reflecting a preferential orientation of the included fibers. It is usually found in the quartz cores of pegmatites and is believed to form at high temperatures, but it has also been found in hydrothermal veins.

This is the rose quartz that is used in lapidary and carvings.
Crystals of this type of rose quartz have never been found.
The other variety occurs in well-formed crystals of similar color. They are found as a late formation in pegmatite pockets, often overgrowing smoky quartz crystals in groups of parallel-grown crystals. The color is apparently caused by irradiation induced color centers based on aluminum, Al, and phosphorous, P, that replace Si in the atom lattice (Maschmeyer and Lehmann, 1983). The color is both very light- and heat sensitive. The crystals are slightly dichroic. Because of the substantial differences in their physical properties and causes of color it has been suggested to give the variety of pink-colored quartz that forms crystals the name "pink quartz"(Hori, 2001) or "Rosa Quarz" (German for pink quartz, Rykart, 1995).

Traditionally the term "rose quartz" has also occasionally been used for quartz that is colored by other inclusions. Pale amethyst may be confused with rose quartz, type "pink quartz".
