Strawberry quartz is a variety of quartz that has a reddish-pink color and a speckled appearance reminiscent of strawberry seeds. The coloration is caused by the presence of iron oxide or goethite inclusions within the crystal structure.
This type of quartz is usually found in massive form, meaning that it is not often found in large, well-formed crystals. Strawberry quartz is primarily found in Mexico, Russia, and Kazakhstan.
Strawberry quartz is highly valued for its unique beauty and is often used in jewelry and other decorative objects. It is believed to have a calming and soothing energy, as well as to promote love, kindness, and emotional healing. Some people also believe that it can be helpful for enhancing creativity and intuition.
As a type of quartz, strawberry quartz is a relatively hard and durable mineral, making it suitable for use in a variety of jewelry settings. Due to its rarity and unique appearance, it is often more expensive than other types of quartz.
