CiM Tester Feedback

Rose Quartz was reformulated in autumn 2007. Original batches of Rose Quartz varied widely when worked; some results were transparent, some opalescent or translucent, and some opaque. We reformulated Rose Quartz in order to provide a more consistent opalescent working experience.    If you are uncertain which batch you have, please e-mail for more information.

"In preparation for the Race for the Cure, a friend of mine who is a breast cancer survivor, requested I make my Change A Bead Necklaces for her walking team participants. The top and bottom bead in this necklace are made with Gelly's Sty Unique -1 bases, encased in Rose Quartz and decorated with some White Stringer." See more pink beads at Chris's blog.

“Out of the nine Messy opals that I tested, five of them remained translucent and they were Plum, Rose Quartz, Ghee, Chalcedony and Crocus.” Read more about keeping opal glass translucent at the Frantz Art Glass blog.

"I have found that you would need to have a highlighting colour under it if using for dots and spots as it is not a solid opaque colour and can dissipate if used over a dark colour." Read more at Born to Bead's blog.

“Rose Quartz etches normally. This bead was put in etching solution for 12 minutes."
