This mineral is found in many deposits around the world, especially in Brazil, Madagascar and South Dakota.
Rose quartz is commonly used for jewelry and lapidary projects because of its hardness and lack of cleavage. It has been a gemstone, utilized as a religious object, and used ornamentally for thousands of years.
