Rose quartz can present a very sought-after asterism effect. This is the presence of star-shaped rays of light. It is then called star rose quartz.

The etymology of the name quartz comes from “quaterz” which means “bad ore”. In the Middle Ages, the name quartz included all crystals.

In Greek mythology, the unfortunate story of lovers Aphrodite and Adonis is told. Ares, Aphrodite's jealous husband, sent a boar to kill Adonis. Aphrodite, informed, rushed to save her lover. During her run, she injured herself on a thorn bush and when she arrived, Adonis was already injured: their blood then mingled. They crystallized and gave birth to rose quartz.
