Its distinctive pink to rose-red color is attributed to the presence of trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese. Rose Quartz is often found in granite and pegmatite formations. The pink color can vary from pale to deep pink, and its translucent to transparent nature adds to its aesthetic appeal.
