Cherry “quartz” is not a quartz at all. It’s a glass! There was a lot of humming and hawing about it at first, with some claiming it’s a natural material. Well, since Mother Nature didn’t make this glass the way she did with obsidian from volcanic activity, that means it’s man-made. It’s a gorgeous and popular material because of its swirls and clouds of pink in a clear base. I’m not aware of any particular metaphysical properties other than those of glass and its pink color energy but psychologically it’s an “oooh, pretty!” type of “stone”.
Cherry Quartz is made by melting powdered Quartz and mixing copper oxide with the quartz to give different visual effects.
