The Rock Shed was founded on the sale of one item, our all time favourite, and South Dakota state mineral, Rose Quartz.

Rose quartz is a macrocrystalline form of quartz, meaning it consists of larger visible crystals. Its coloration is attributed to trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese within the crystal structure. The color can vary due to different concentrations of these impurities. Some Rose Quartz contains microscopic Rutile needles which produce an asterism in transmitted light. Rose quartz is a pink-colored variety of the mineral quartz (SiO2), often considered one of the most popular and recognizable gemstones. It derives its name from its delicate rose-pink hue, which can range from pale to more intense shades. Rose quartz has been revered for centuries for its aesthetic appeal and its associations with love, compassion, and emotional healing.

Formation: Rose quartz typically forms within igneous rocks, pegmatites, and hydrothermal veins. Over geological timescales, the cooling and crystallization of these materials allow rose quartz to develop. As these rocks erode, rose quartz can be found in alluvial deposits, often in riverbeds or areas where water has carried and sorted the minerals.

Care and Maintenance: Rose quartz is relatively durable and suitable for daily wear in jewelry pieces. However, it’s important to avoid exposing it to excessive heat or prolonged sunlight, as this can cause the color to fade. To clean rose quartz, use mild soapy water and a soft brush, and avoid exposing it to harsh chemicals or ultrasonic cleaners.
