Pink quartz in Art'emi's creations

The color of pink quartz comes in a wide range of shades from pale pink to dark pink. In addition, peach or orange reflections can be observed depending on the type of metals that make up the stone. The deeper the color, the more valuable the quartz will be.

Quartz is one of the most common minerals on earth, it exists in different colors.

Origins and legends of pink quartz

The name crystal comes from the Greek krystallos (to designate the stone quartz), which means ice. This name was given to it because it looks like it and it can stay cold in the heat longer than glass. Pink quartz is obviously part of this very large family of quartz. What differentiates it from its many cousins is the presence in the stone of traces of specific trace elements (mineral salt necessary for the life of an organism) which gives it its beautiful pink color. Indeed, the different members of the family personalize themselves by the presence of traces of lithium, aluminum, iron, boron, calcium, magnesium, calcium, titanium and/or rubidium. This is enough to create a wide range of color combinations!

Greek mythology attributes the genesis of the stone to the unfortunate love of Aphrodite and Adonis. Pink quartz would be the fruit of the mixed and crystallized blood of the goddess and the mortal. Moreover, according to Mayan legend, one of the famous 13 crystal skulls is made of pink quartz. Together, they would reveal the great secrets of the universe... For the moment, they are spread out in different museums around the world... What would happen if they are together? Will the unicorns be back on Earth?

Quartz in everyday life

In lithotherapy (a therapeutic method that consists of healing oneself with crystals), it is considered the stone of the heart, love, and peace. Thus, through its virtues, it spreads its gentleness within us and in our interactions with others. Smoked quartz, on the other hand, is a variety of quartz that owes its color to the aluminum salts it contains. Considered as the stone of responsibility and refocusing, it would calm the strong emotions that confuse thinking.

Finally, as you may have guessed, pink quartz is the ultimate love stone. It spreads its waves of softness and tenderness and gives us the feeling of rolling around in a cocoon. That is why Art'émi uses this semi-precious stone to create jewelry such as the pink quartz ring! In any case, the most beautiful pink quartz has soft and uniform color.
