Stone of the Month
March's Stone of the Month:
Necklace Designed by Tia Darst

Cherry Quartz:

Cherry Quartz is a beautiful man-made glass from China, a mixture of clear glass and swirls of deep pink. It is made from glass melted in a furnace then combined with a coloring agent to produce the swirling inclusions or "needles" that give it its unique look. The glass is then cooled, cut, & polished like a gemstone. It has been said to attract love.

Hardness: 5.0
