In addition, it usually has translucent cloudy micro-mineral inclusions that further enhance the pink color.
Rosy quartz can also exhibit a starburst effect on its polished surface when it contains a small amount of finely needle-like rutile inclusions that are oriented in an orderly fashion.

8. How to cleanse rose quartz?
Bury or soak in salt
The standard way to cleanse and purify rose quartz crystals is to use.
How do we do it? If you use large grains of salt, then simply put the salt on a plate or dish and then bury the stone within the salt for about 24 hours. Reminder, it can be longer than 24 hours, but not shorter. This is very effective and can last up to 3 months with a single purification, also called 100-day purification.
If we use small grains of salt instead, we need to prepare a liquid in the ratio of 10 grams of kosher salt to 500 grams of water, put the crystal into the liquid, and soak it for 24 hours. Since the small grains of salt are less energetic, you can carry it for about 1 month continuously for one purification.
Use clear water
Crystals and their energy come from nature, so we can also use natural methods to help cleanse the stone.
Place the stone in a flowing stream or river or even tap water and rinse it with water for 20 minutes before drying it.
If this is not possible, buy a bottle of mineral water and soak the crystal in it for 24 hours. This helps to remove the negative energy.

9. How to charge rose quartz?
Place it on a crystal cluster
Charging with a crystal cluster is the easiest and most convenient method. The crystal cluster itself has very strong energy. It can not only purify the stone but also charge it. All we need to do is to place the stone on the crystal cluster overnight.
In the moonlight
On the night of the full moon, place the crystals on a windowsill facing the moon. You can also place them outside if it is safe to do so. If needed, cover them with a glass jar or bowl to provide extra protection. Moonlight will charge the crystals overnight.
10. Can rose quartz go in the water?
Yes. However, we need to avoid high temperatures and acidic and alkaline liquids, which can cause pink quartz to lose its luster and fade. Therefore, rose quartz can go in the water, but it should not be worn in the bath.
11. Can rose quartz be in the sun?
No, pink quartz gets its unique pink color from traces of titanium, which will fade and become pale if they are exposed to sunlight for a long time.
12. Care and maintenance
The pink rose quartz color tends to fade when exposed to high temperatures, which also ruins its luster. Therefore, avoid direct exposure to sunlight, and it is best to not use sunlight to purify this specific stone.
When wearing rose quartz jewelry, avoid collision or squeezing, which may damage the beauty of the crystal. Avoid cosmetics, perfumes, acids, alkalis, or sulfuric substances; please take off rose quartz jewelry when bathing. Please wipe the stone clean and store it in a soft package when not wearing it.
