Cherry Quartz is not formed naturally, but rather man-made using Cinnabar for color and natural, reconstituted quartz. The Quartz and Cinnabar are melted together providing vibrant flashes and colorful swirls throughout. The Cinnabar found in this stone makes striations, feathers, vortex and cloud formations which make Cherry Quartz even more beautiful. It has also provided this stone with its deep, rich cherry color.
