Due to being a very new find in the gem and mineral community, there has been lots of speculation as to what causes the blue colour, and it was generally attributed to a visual effect known as Rayleigh Scattering. However, the lovely folks over at Little Lemuria have had this new crystal lab tested and have found a different conclusion - although early lab test results did mention Rayleigh Scattering as a potential cause, more aggressive testing eventually showed tiny Dumortierite fibres with Titanium and Iron content are in fact what gives the beautiful blue hue. This makes sense, as on some fine specimens you can actually see the blue "wiggles" in concentrated patches!
Rose Quartz has been found in jewellery dating back to 7000BC, and is still extremely popular today. It is known as the crystal of universal and unconditional love, and according to Greek legend, Rose Quartz was formed when Ares, God of War, attacked the Goddess of Love Aphrodite’s lover, and their blood stained white Quartz pink to create Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz is also a famous beauty crystal, and the Egyptians believed it improved the complexion and helped to prevent aging - there have even been face masks made of Rose Quartz found in Egyptian tombs.
