Rocko decided to sell some of his tumbled stones that we purchased as rough from National Geographic. He plans to use the money for savings, for his and Joy's college funds, and for books from his school's book fair (we save money for this from recycling as well).
This is pretty much equivalent to a lemonade stand (we're "small batch, artisan, gemstones"); you can find these elsewhere for less money. When you buy from us, you're simply supporting our adventures.

Rose quartz is a stunning pink gemstone that has captured the hearts of people for centuries. This mineral is a variety of quartz that gets its delicate pink color from the presence of titanium, iron, or manganese in its composition. Its color ranges from pale pink to deep rose, and it is prized for its beauty and symbolism.

Rose quartz has been used in many different ways throughout history. It was often used for jewelry and decorative objects in ancient times, and has been found in many archaeological sites around the world. It has also been used in healing practices and spiritual ceremonies, and is believed to have properties that promote love, peace, and compassion.

The mineral structure of rose quartz is composed of silicon dioxide, just like all varieties of quartz. It typically forms in hexagonal prisms, and its color can vary depending on the impurities in its composition. When the iron, titanium, or manganese content is high, the rose color of the quartz is more intense.

And now for a joke about rose quartz: What did the rose quartz say to the amethyst? "You rock, too!"
