How to understand that rose quartz is not suitable?

When buying bracelets, a pendant, a brooch, a ring or any other piece of jewelry, you want to become the owner of a real piece of jewelry, and not a cheap fake for which you paid a lot of money. Quartz, like any other stone, is often imitated, but the fake is passed off as natural. Of course, this affects the quality of wear and even the magical properties of the stone that are attributed to it. How not to overpay for a fake and not become the owner of a fake at a high price? Let’s try to figure it out.

The most popular rose quartz: how to distinguish a fake from the real one?

Quartz jewelry will never lose its relevance. This stone has a huge number of shades, meanings and suits many. However, in order not to be disappointed in it, you need to carefully choose not only the color and fit, but also the quality. Rose quartz is most often used in jewelry. It is universal, has a beautiful natural shade and is suitable for creating a wide variety of jewelry: bracelets, beads, earrings, pendants, etc. But this does not mean that only jewelers use it. Quartz can be soft yellow, greenish, turquoise, transparent, and shimmer with all the colors of the rainbow. In any case, there are several effective methods to check whether the stone is natural or not.

  • Nature never creates a stone with an ideal structure. Almost always, quartz has small defects that harmoniously fit into its image: microcracks, uneven shade, varying degrees of transparency.
  • Uneven color is evidence of a natural mineral. It happens that the stone is bright pink on one side, and pale, almost colorless on the other.
  • A plain, smooth stone will most likely be a fake. Moreover, a fake can be grown artificially, and it can look no worse than a natural sample.
  • Therefore, pay attention to the next point. Titanium and manganese color quartz pink. Also in natural stone there are air bubbles and miniature cracks, which during grinding create the effect of a star with six rays. This is the so-called “cat’s eye”, which is almost impossible to achieve in artificial stone.
  • Fake rose quartz is most often made of glass, imitating veins, cracks and that same cat’s eye. But in the light you can see that all the lines are drawn evenly and under the ruler. Therefore, take a close look at the stone.
  • Natural quartz scratches glass easily.
  • Quartz of any shade is cool and gains heat slowly. While artificial stone quickly heats up from the body.
  • A natural specimen, regardless of color, fades over time. Fake – no. Natural stone is usually stored out of sunlight, and fake stone is stored in an open display case. Pay attention to this!
  • If you see an opaque, homogeneous mass, somewhat similar to plastic, with a bright color and light weight, these are clear signs of a fake.
  • Glass is often passed off as transparent rose quartz. It costs much less. The sound can be checked by hitting glass: stone and glass will give a dull meringue chime sound, glass on glass will give a louder and ringing sound.

Among the varieties of quartz, rauchtopaz or smoky quartz, morion or black quartz are often counterfeited. Both are transparent, have shades from gray to brown – if we are talking about the natural origin of the stone. Smoky quartz is considered one of the most expensive because it contains rutile inclusions, creating a star effect. It is almost impossible to do it manually, so pay attention to this point. In natural black quartz, only thin plates are visible, and it is almost impossible to make it synthetically or manually.

There are effective ways to avoid purchasing a fake stone – buy jewelry in trusted stores, request a certificate of conformity, or contact a jeweler for advice. And if you want to create jewelry yourself, then in our catalog you will find natural quartz beads of various shapes, sizes, organs, including rare types of rutile quartz.

June 11, 2019 A semi-precious delicate gem, rose quartz is often used in jewelry. It is distinguished by its transparency, lightness of shade and unique beauty. It is believed that the stone brings good luck and attracts love and sympathy of the opposite sex. But who is rose quartz suitable for according to their zodiac sign and what are the features of this mineral?

Physico-chemical properties of the gem

The stone of volcanic origin has a glassy luster and high strength. Semi-precious rose quartz has the following properties and features:

It is believed that the rose quartz stone is not suitable for all zodiac signs. But it also has unique healing and magical properties.

Zodiac signs favored by rose quartz

In its raw form, rose quartz stone is suitable for people who find themselves in the following difficult situations:

Should we believe astrological forecasts and choose stones based on them? You decide. But many owners of rose quartz noted that the house became calmer and lighter after purchasing it.

History of the mineral in myths and legends

The origin of rose quartz is shrouded in myths and legends. In some stories, the stone is considered a symbol of pure and great love. In others – harmony of soul and kindness.

According to one legend, rose quartz was given to people by the god of love Eros. The purpose of the gift was to teach city residents pure love, humanity, empathy and the ability to live in harmony with the world and nature.

Some ancient peoples believed that the pink gem was the petrified juice of Mother Earth herself, which calls on every inhabitant of the planet to live in harmony with the beauty of nature.

There is another very beautiful legend showing that rose quartz stone is suitable for all lovers. One mortal youth Adonis, the son of Kinir and Myrrha (rulers of beautiful Cyprus), fell in love with the goddess Aphrodite with all his heart. And the goddess reciprocated the mortal’s feelings.

A strong feeling made them forget that they were from different worlds. But Ares, who was jealous of Aphrodite, remembered this. He attacked Adonis and killed him. And he fenced the body with thorny bushes, through which Aphrodite tried to get through to hug her dead lover. From the drops of blood of lovers, rose quartz appeared – a symbol of eternal love.

Another sad legend about rose quartz is also associated with unequal love. Two young people from different classes fell in love with each other so much that they did not want to put up with their parents’ desire to marry them off to other “equal” townspeople. All the passion and devotion of the young people was seen only by beautiful flowers – roses. After the death of the lovers, who preferred to go to the world of the dead rather than live separately, the flowers petrified and turned into rose quartz.

Interesting fact. In the annals of Ancient Rome and Egypt there is a mention of pink powder, which was used along with other components to rejuvenate the skin.

Large mining sites for rose quartz, which suits all zodiac signs, especially Taurus and Libra, are located in the following countries:

  • Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Poland, Russia;
  • Japan, Kazakhstan, India;
  • USA, Brazil.

In our country, the largest deposits are located in Karelia and Altai. Moreover, the most beautiful and high-quality gem is mined on the island of Madagascar.

Depending on the deposit, the shade of quartz can vary from white-pink with splashes of white to purple. Interesting are the star-shaped options, where the core of the stone is slightly darkened and “rays” spread along the internal cracks.

What healing properties does the mineral have?

In addition to the question of who is suitable for rose quartz and which zodiac sign is best to wear it, jewelers and astrologers are often asked whether the gem has healing powers. Many magicians and lovers of traditional medicine are confident that the pink stone is capable of:

  1. Calm and restore the strength of the human nervous system. Even as a talisman of family happiness, it will bring that cherished peace and sound sleep.
  2. Restore the cardiovascular system, which is directly affected by stress and lack of sleep.
  3. Soothe inflammatory diseases.

Often the gem is used to purify water and charge it with positive energy. It is believed that rose quartz is able to quickly heal from stress and tune into a positive mood. In addition, it helps treat diseases of the lymphatic system, improving blood circulation and brain function, and it also has a positive effect on the gastrointestinal tract if you drink purified and charged water.

In traditional Chinese medicine, quartz balls are used for acupressure. It is believed that it accelerates cell regeneration and helps remove negative energy.

Traditional recipes for treatment with quartz

  1. Place the stone under your pillow at night. This will improve your sleep and relieve daytime fatigue.
  2. Leave the gem overnight in a jar of water. Drink water in the morning. It is believed that this gem will help cleanse and rejuvenate the body.
  3. Add a pinch of quartz powder to your night cream and apply it at night. It helps smooth out wrinkles and relieve skin fatigue.

What products are made from rose quartz

You can buy rose quartz not only for those whose zodiac sign it matches. Moreover, for all planets it is considered neutral.

The delicate semi-precious gem is often used by jewelers to create:

  • massive rings (link:/products/ukrasheniya/koltsa/s-kamnyami/s-kvartsem/), earrings and necklaces;
  • bracelets only made of stone;
  • original products, where in addition to quartz cubic zirconia is added;
  • neat pendants and earrings with small pendants;
  • hairpins, brooches and other jewelry.

Interesting fact. Besides Taurus and Libra, rose quartz is also suitable for Cancer, Aquarius and Sagittarius. For these zodiac signs, the stone can be a source of inspiration. And as a talisman of love, the gem is suitable for Pisces, Gemini and Aries.

The difference between a gem and a fake

Have you decided that the stone is perfect for you, but are you afraid to buy a fake? Remember how to determine whether it is plastic or glass:

Most often, instead of natural quartz, customers are offered glass with streaks, which jewelers call “cherry quartz.” The difference between this “fake” is its low price. Moreover, in appearance the analogue is very similar to the original.

Important! When checking a larger number of natural gems, it is enough to arm yourself with a needle. A Mohs hardness score above 6 indicates that the surface is not easy to scratch. But noticeable marks will immediately remain on glass or plastic.

Who would definitely like a delicate gem?

Let’s summarize who rose quartz suits according to their “soul” and zodiac sign:

  1. Taurus, Libra and Pisces will receive all the energy of the pink gem. For them, the stone will become a talisman of love and a talisman against the evil eye.
  2. Sagittarius, Scorpio and Cancer will be imbued with creative energy from the “stone of love”.
  3. Leos, Virgos and Aries will find family happiness and peace.
  4. All families will find sound sleep and peace of mind with untreated stone. Unmarried girls will meet their soul mate and soon enter into legal marriage.
  5. Stress and insomnia will go away with such a talisman.

Remember that gems are chosen not only for astrological and magical compatibility, but also simply for their external beauty. Thanks to its delicate shade, jewelry with rose quartz is perfect for a large number of summer outfits, will highlight white business-style blouses and will be a wonderful decoration for children’s ears and necks.

Do not forget that you should only purchase any jewelry in special stores or trusted online stores. It is not advisable to buy natural stones in souvenir shops. This way you can easily fall for a fake and get glass instead of a beautiful natural stone.
