How Can I Tell if a Rose Quartz is Real?
When buying Rose Quartz crystals, take a close look at the stone to see if there are any obvious signs that it has been altered or manmade. Does the pink colour look natural to you, or is it a bit too bright? Look for a build-up of colour in the little cracks and crevices. If you can see this, then there is a good chance the crystal has been dyed. In addition, check for bubbles in the crystal as well as whether it feels cold or warm. Bubbles are usually an indication of glass and real Rose Quartz should feel cool when you first touch it, even on a hot day.
If you already own a Rose Quartz crystal and would like to test it to see if it is genuine, you can perform a scratch test in accordance with the Mohs Scale of Hardness. Rose Quartz crystals are rated as a 7 on the Mohs scale therefore glass, which rates as a 5.5, won't be able to scratch the Rose Quartz. Genuine Rose Quartz however, will scratch glass.
