Rose Quartz: The State Mineral of South Dakota

by Amy on October 6, 2011

Pink is not a color I particularly care for, but I do like Rose Quartz. I have a few big pieces in my flowerbeds.

My father-in-law had collected a few tractor tires full of different sizes that are kept down at our junk yard.

They occasionally get raided for our yard or to give as souvenirs to guests who are new to visiting South Dakota. I can remember as a kid, the pile of Rose Quartz where we took my aunt from North Carolina to pick through so she could have some pieces of her native South Dakota which she greatly missed, to put in her yard.


It comes in darker and lighter shades of pink.

 I like the darker pink colored Rose quartz the best but any of it spruces up a flowerbed.

A lot of South Dakota’s Rose Quartz is found in the Black Hills. I found some interesting  information about South Dakota’s state mineral through research here.

I was doing a search for where I can find rose quartz in North Carolina and came upon your website. I love your commentary and envy your lifestyle. I have always lived in “the city” in one place or another and hope to someday move to the country and get away from it all. There is nothing like the peace and serenity of being surrounded by nature.

Thank you! I have it all over my house and yard, especially after I read up on its symbolism.

I cam across your site as I was perusing the internet looking for some Rose Quartz. Do you happen to sell it? I have so many customers that want it and the prices are just awful here in Greensboro, NC.

A small piece at one of the stores here that I like to shop at personally sells them for $15! I can’t afford those prices and neither can most of my customers.

I sooooo envy you having all that beautiful healing energy stone just laying around everywhere! You are so blessed to have all that sacred energy!

Thanks for your time!
