It was used frequently by the ancient Egyptians as cosmetic face masks and was known as the beauty stone of Isis. Today, you can see its cosmetic use in the many rose quartz face rollers sold on the market. The pink hue native to rose quartz comes from the dumortierite inclusions within its structure. Dumortierite is an aluminum borosilicate that merges with the silicate structure of quartz during formation.
