Quartz includes a large group of minerals based on silicon dioxide. Rose quartz is a macrocrystalline form, as are amethyst, aventurine and citrine. It is a milky pink color, often crackled, and found mainly in large clumps. Only rarely is it found in single crystal form. It is believed that the pink color is due to a small amount of titanium.
The quartz that I use in all my rattles is from Alaska – I cut it and tumble it myself to use as accents or in the main bodies of rattle heads.
