This round quartz cabochon features a stylish rose cut that accentuates the attractive deep golden-brown whiskey color. The stone is well suited to vintage-style designs; its color is nicely complemented by settings of yellow or rose-toned metals.
One of the most common minerals, quartz comes in many varieties and colors. The two main categories are macrocrystalline, which are usually transparent and crystals are visible, and cryptocrystalline, which appear translucent or opaque. The many varieties of quartz each offer distinct characteristics and, according to folklore, their own powers and purposes.
A favorite of yesteryear, this rose-cut faceting features a flat base (no pavilion) and a crown made up of triangular facets.
