Quartz crystals often form with inclusions of other minerals. These can be visible crystals of black tourmaline or rutile, which looks like metallic hairs or needles and can be gold, silver, or copper colored. Other times clusters of green chlorite or pink manganese can be seen, appearing like little terrariums inside the crystal. Hematite inclusions give quartz a reddish brown color. Much of the included quartz we see today is found in Brazil and Madagascar. In addition to any properties associated with the included minerals, included quartz can be helpful in grounding and gaining perspective, overcoming confusion and strengthening the intuition.

Rose quartz, the pink member of the quartz family, usually occurs in massive form, but occasionally grows in small clusters of prismatic crystals. It is most often opaque or translucent and in some specimens, trace inclusions of rutile can cause reflections of six pointed stars. Rose quartz is considered the quintessential stone of love: for one’s self, life partner, children, family, friends, community, the earth, the universe, and the divine. It is believed to calm the mind, assisting in the release of worry, fear, and anxiety. Most rose quartz is mined in Brazil and Madagascar.
