Rose Quartz Luster

Optical Properties of Rose Quartz are its behavioral responses towards light. While few optical properties can be identified with naked eyes, other require special instruments by the gemologists to identify them. Rose Quartz optical properties like luster, clarity, refractive index etc. are used to determine the non-destructive methods during gemstone identification and evaluation.

Rose Quartz luster is the quantity of light the crystal reflects when light is incident on it. Rose Quartz which is commonly found in Strong pink, pink color, is Translucent, Transparent and Transparent to translucent in nature. It possess Vitreous luster.

Rose Quartz Refractive Index

Optical properties of a Rose Quartz crystal are responsive to the small changes in composition and strain within its crystalline structure. Absolute diligence is therefore necessary during cutting and polishing of the gemstone. All such optical properties are majorly influenced by Physical Properties of Rose Quartz.

As we are well aware, refractive index is the phenomenon which is related to bending of light through a medium (crystal). It is used in qualitative analysis of gemstones by gemologists Besides, few gemstones exhibit property of dual refractive indices. This dual nature is known as Birefringence. The value of Rose Quartz refractive index is 1.544-1.553. Birefringence value for this gem is 0.009. So if you are searching for prominent Gems for Taurus, Rose Quartz gem is something not miss on, since it has been a favorite pick in the gem wearing community.
