The color of the fibrous mineral as well as the color of rose quartz is stable up to temperatures of about 575°C (Lehmann and Bambauer, 1978; Goreva et al, 2001) and is also generally stable in ultraviolet light (Goreva et al, 2001), although there have been occasional reports of material that pales quickly in daylight.
Rose quartz is dichroic, reflecting a preferential orientation of the included fibers. Rose quartz from some localities shows asterism when cut as spheres or cabochons, much like that seen in certain sapphires.

The star's position depends both on the location of the light source and the position of the observer (Schmetzer and Krzemnicki, 2006; Killingback, 2008). Taurus- April 21 to May 20.
