Rose Quartz - one of the most abundant varieties of the Quartz family - which in no way detracts from it's overall prettiness. It is a translucent to transparent stone with a soft pale pink hue, thought to be derived from trace amounts of titanium, iron or manganese impurities within the stone. You'd think by now, we'd be pretty clear on what creates the colour, but there you go.

At least they would be nice and cool and soothing. Fits on 2 mm leather or other cord.
