It's Pink Saturday!

Our hostess is Beverly, at How Sweet the Sound. Click on the pink lady for more pink links and info on how to join in the fun!

REPOST: Those of you who follow my photo blog may have already seen these pink pretties, but I thought the pink lovers might enjoy them too!

The mystical properties attached to rose quartz make this special heart-shaped gift from my daughter-in-law even more special. Historically, it is a symbol of love and beauty. I keep it on my desk and periodically run my fingers over its cool smoothness when I think of her.

About Rose Quartz

Pink or peach-colored quartz is called Rose Quartz. It has a hardness of 7.

Rose Quartz is found in Brazil, India, Madagascar, Spain, and several locations within the USA.

Rose Quartz will chip and crack rather easily.

Rose Quartz fades in the sun; most Rose Quartz is dyed.

Rose Quartz is the love stone, used to improve and strengthen the special bonds between people.

Rose Quartz is the alternate for garnet as January's birthstone.

Rose Quartz is the anniversary gemstone for the 2nd year of marriage.

Rose Quartz is the state mineral of South Dakota.

A gift from Lew, my pink pen/pencil set has held up well under many years of use, abuse (unintentional) and non-use. Its pretty tapestry holder keeps it nicely protected.

Happy Pink Saturday everyone! :)

Happy Pink Saturday, Marianne.

I love rose quartz, and your piece is just beautiful. How special that someone you love gave it to you.

Maybe pink pens would make balancing my checkbook more fun. ;-)
