Rose Quartz is too a January Birthstone, so much a modern alternative to garnet. Very light to rich translucent pink colour and is part of the quartz family. Rose quartz name and origins are linked to gentleness and universal unconditional love.
Birthstones are shrouded in myth and legend – they're traditionally believed to bring good luck and therapeutic powers.
