This kilt pin from our Bee Natural series is a beautiful way to show your love on your jacket, purse, hat or a baby’s bag or carrier. Created by skilled artisans, each cloisonné bead can take up to four hours to produce. Dozens of tiny cells are arranged on the bead's surface, filled with enamel color, and fired. Then each bead is polished, revealing intricate and beautiful designs. Rose quartz came to be known as the stone of love and reconciliation from the Greek myth about Aphrodite and Adonis. Their blood was commingled when Aphrodite was cut by a thorn bush while saving Adonis from an attack by Ares (disguised as a wild boar). Their blood stained white quartz to make it a rose-pink color. Later, it became customary for the Romans to use the stone as a gift of love. Its color is usually soft, ranging from very light pink to medium pink in intensity. Rose Quartz is fairly common and found in many places throughout the world.
Since Rose Quartz is a natural stone, each pin is unique and colors may vary.
Rose quartz is fairly hard, so it can be cleaned with an ultrasonic cleaner. Avoid heat with most forms of colorful quartzes to prevent hue shift. Store rose quartz out of direct sunlight to preserve its color.
