I'm not familiar specifically with "Rose" quartz. I do know that quarts is generally considered safe in an aquarium & should not alter any parameters. Many aquarium gravel substrates are quartz based. Just make sure that it contains no flecks or veins of metal & I think it should be ok.

It might pay to wait for further responsed though because as I said, I'm not familiar with that specific type quartz.

Nutter-Rose quartz is clear quartz that is pink. It's a natural stone.

Jo-As far as I know, quartz is safe for aquariums, but hang on for some more responses in case there's something I overlooked.

Thanks BB. Sounds pretty much like I figured it to be. Quartz is perfectly safe. Just so long as it is quartz & not one of those pink cyrstals. I think I read somewhere that many crystals are not safe for aquariums.

The only problem I would see is if it has any sharp edges other than that the stone it's self is aquarium safe.

Yep. As has been said, quartz is safe. The pink color comes from minute amounts of iron. Even if the surface iron does leach into the water, it won't harm the fish. It's in smaller quantity than the iron in, say, fluorite.
