I can’t say it sufficient…

I’m so grateful to our Hibiscus Moon Licensed Crystal Practitioner college students who carry these items to my consideration! (That’s how I preserve my finger on the heartbeat of this crystal misrep-stuff.)

It’s been my gig all alongside this crystal journey — to level out that there gave the impression to be a little bit of an info-gap in our crystal group on some good, stable, easy-to-understand information relating to this form of factor.

Being a former science division head, having studied geology on the Masters’s degree, and being a crystal creator plus the founding father of the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy, with a comparatively giant following offers me a very good purpose and platform to coach about crystal fakes.

My objective is to coach our crystal group on what’s at the moment fooling us or being misrepresented available on the market so we will make clever shopping for selections. In the event you really feel enthusiastic about this, too, please share this submit in any approach you favor. (By the way in which, there are some  “SHARE” buttons you should use under).

Alright, let’s dig into what I contemplate to be a MAJOR misrepresentation:

GROUND RULES: Please don’t name out any sellers within the feedback. No names, no hyperlinks. Please don’t present hate in direction of anybody. That is about empowering and educating ourselves. ❤️

Blue Rose Quartz

What within the HELL?

Yep. Right here we go.

It began once I had a rash of my CCP college students asking me about this “new” Blue Rose Quartz popping up in all places available on the market.

It’s supposedly “Blue Rose Quartz” from Madagascar.

Thanks to Graphic Designer and College, Alexis from Staff HM for sharing these footage of “blue rose quartz” with us

I did some poking round my normal geology haunts/golf equipment and discovered it’s additionally typically dubbed as “Girasol,” opalized Quartz. (Opal begins out as silica [SiO2] dissolved in water. When the silica answer fills an empty pocket, perhaps left behind by one thing that dissolved away way back — similar to Jell-o poured right into a mould; it may possibly harden to kind an opalized copy of the unique.).

Did ya know?: This complete opalizing course of could be lab-forced too. 

This is also the results of heating a low-grade Amethyst above 932°F (500°C) which not solely bleaches it out (sure, we’ve carried out experiments, and you’ll strive it too) however can lead to an opal-y, milky look, leading to so-called ‘neon blue quartz’ or simply “neon quartz”.

Even larger warmth will bleach out the lilac coloration utterly, and tiny water droplets might kind within the quartz, which is what creates opal, aka Girasol.


Nevertheless, utilizing the time period “Girasol” will get a bit complicated.

In Italian, the phrase refers to a “turning solar” and immediately interprets to “sunflower” (cuz, ya know… it turns with the daylight). Now in geology, this refers to an opal stone with a cloudy bluish-white glow, a ghost-like impact attributable to gentle scattering. Gems corresponding to Moonstone and opals, and different varieties of feldspars can exhibit this phenomenon. It’s characterised by a luminous reflection of sunshine, showing as white or coloured (usually bluish) gentle, and it might additionally happen as a shimmery sheen that may solely be noticed in particular instructions — attributable to the diffraction and interference of sunshine. The girasol impact describes a mineral impact produced by a scattered gentle impact that strikes or seems to shimmer.

Moonstone pendants

Moonstone pendants show the “girasol impact.”

I seen that a few of what’s being referenced as “Blue Rose Quartz” is technically a bluish-white translucent Opal/Girasol or maybe combined with some mottled type of lower-grade hazy Quartz with typically reddish or rainbow reflections.

SIDENOTE: These items all the time existed. It’s not new!

Lilac or Lavender Rose Quartz?

Whether or not they use the descriptive coloration “lilac” or “lavender,” I see these items most frequently being touted as “high-quality.” Let’s get into {that a} bit.

As I discussed above, sturdy heating will bleach out the lilac coloration utterly from a low-grade Amethyst or milky Quartz and yield tiny water droplets forming within the Quartz = Girasol. *sigh*

Little Lemuria, (owned by ultra-phenomenally good proprietor Jessica Watson, who I bought to have a number of geo-geek discussions with whereas speaking about this matter) had a geological assay report carried out on the fabric that that they had. You’ll be able to verify that out right here.

BTW, do you’ve ANY thought how impressed I’m by this form of dedication?

Again within the day, we used to have a grading system that was in widespread use with stone sellers (it’s nonetheless round however I don’t see it getting used that a lot any longer. Hmmmm? Surprise why that’s?) This grading system’s similar to how diamonds are assessed and assigned letters. For example, “AAA” is the very best grade whereas “D” is the bottom.

Blue Rose Quartz, lavender rose quartz, low grade amethyst

Is it Lilac or Lavender Rose Quartz? It is a stone I offered in my Etsy crystal store again in 2009. I labeled it as Pale Amethyst; D perhaps C grade at greatest!

Generally, it’s not even crystal however simply straight-up glass.

I’m simply gonna say it:

This, for probably the most half, is D low-grade Rose Quartz! In my humble opinion: it appears clearly extra profitable to forgo the grading system and rename it one thing “non secular/ethereal”!

Above is Licensed Crystal Practitioner Amber Curl of Little Crystal Firm speaking with me backwards and forwards on Instagram about this very difficulty. Take a look at her go!!! I’m so proud.

Earlier than we go any additional… please permit me to make clear: once I say that it’s low-grade rose quartz, I don’t imply that I wouldn’t work with it or that I personally contemplate it lower than. I’m making an attempt to convey that this was thought-about by the stone-selling trade as a lower-quality of rose quartz (or maybe amethyst) based mostly on trade requirements. That does NOT imply that it delivers much less pleasure or energetic influence in any approach as I mentioned on IG right here:

(In the event you’d relatively eat this complete “Blue Rose Quartz” rant in a sorta humorous InstaStory that I’ve grow to be well-known for, I’ve created a Spotlight for you right here.)

I knew she was considered one of our Hibiscus Moon college students with out even understanding who this was at first. I might inform simply by how flippin’ devoted she was to figuring this out. ? Our Crystal Household is understood for not letting this junk get handed them!

Black Rose Quartz. Ummmm… What the Heck is Occurring Right here?

Yeah. There’s a “Black and Blue” Rose Quartz too!

@AbbyHasHeart shared this with me. What was offered to her as Black Rose Quartz on the left and what was offered to her as Lavender Rose Quartz on the fitting.

If that is what we’re OK with doing and we don’t attempt to cease it now, as I discussed above…

we will anticipate not less than a thousand extra advertising and marketing names for numerous Quartz colours within the close to future.

And it received’t ever cease.

Are you OK with that?

Metaphysical Properties of this Materials

Nicely, what concerning the energetic traits of this materials?

I did nevertheless work with the outdated inventory of “lower-grade” rose quartz and amethyst once I had it and to me, it was simply as highly effective as my different rose quartz or amethyst with slight nuances, as is the case with ANY particular person stones I work with. So that is actually one thing you’ll want to determine for your self.

However, we’ve made an influence.

Since my fashionable pretend weblog submit collection that I began again in 2010 (and lots of others prefer it)…  our group began calling this shit out, and sellers instantly began altering their descriptions. That is the influence our Crystal Household has had. THIS is how a gaggle of empowered go-to crystal consultants makes change occur. Definitely, first-world issues, however you gotta begin someplace, proper?

We’ve bought to remain on our toes. I’m passing the torch to you on these items! OK? I’m not going to be round subsequent yr in any respect. It’s now as much as our Crystal Household to maintain the fakes fires burning.

My Blue (or another coloration aside from pink) Rose Quartz Conclusion?

It’s sleight of hand trickery, a gimmicky advertising and marketing title to promote stuff normal from a comparatively (previously thought-about unattractive) low-quality high quality quartz — a advertising and marketing ploy.

Now whether or not we contemplate it engaging or not, I don’t care. Magnificence is all the time within the eye of the beholder.

What I’m up in arms about is that this was all the time comparatively considerable and offered cheaply earlier than. Is it proper to simply state that it now not is and, due to this fact, falsely inflate the worth?

By definition, Rose Quartz is a pink type of Quartz as a consequence of explicit nanofibrous inclusions of one thing intently associated to dumortierite.

However all that geo-speak is splitting hairs anyway.  Rose Quartz is Quartz.

If it’s blue (or another coloration aside from pink to your eyeball ️), it can’t be referred to as Rose Quartz.

To me, if the pink hue will not be there, it’s not Rose Quartz. Finish of story.

As all the time…

Purchaser BewareWho’re you shopping for from? Are they respected? Do they know what they’re speaking about? Is the worth too good to be true? Are you doing your individual due diligence + analysis? The easiest way to guard your self is thru training. Preserve this in thoughts: At all times use your widespread sense.  Don’t merely depend on what the vendor is telling you.

I simply need us all to have the geo-knowledge first. Then you may make a well-informed determination relating to the way you select to work with these stones. At all times use your widespread sense, and one of the best safety from that is to be well-informed.

All of us love the gorgeous jewels that Mama Earth creates, and also you don’t know what you don’t know…

till you recognize higher.
