Rose quartz may be palest pink to rosy red, its color caused by iron and titanium impurities in the quartz.
Thought to counteract negative feelings, rose quartz is often said to be the stone of love and self-love. It is also considered a healing stone.
Rose quartz is found in Brazil, Madagascar, India, Germany and the United States.
Sterling silver is a white, highly reflective precious metal composed of 925 parts of pure silver and 75 parts alloy, usually copper. Copper provides the silver with sufficient hardness and wearing qualities, as pure silver is sometimes considered too soft to be used or worn everyday.
At times, we oxidize or "antique" our finished sterling pieces to blacken the recessed areas, and then rub the rest of the piece to a high white shine. Oxidizing can give a piece of jewelry wonderful depth and rustic feel.
