Geology: rose quartz is an abundant crystal found in many different locations around the world, it gets its common pink colour due to the inclusion of the mineral dumortierite. Transparent pink rose quartz is rare although found all over the globe, the colour of rose quartz , especially the ones that are transparent is due to the irradiation-induced colour centres which are unstable, hence the colour fades when exposed to heat or light for a prolonged period of time. It is therefore adviced that rose quartz be kept out of direct sunlight.
