Rose quartz is a massive crystalline form of quartz that is colored by
manganese or titanium. The color can vary from deep rose red to pale pink. The price of rose quartz varies with the color. The pale pink is fairly inexpensive.
Famous deposits exist in North and South Dakota, Colorado, Brazil, and China.
You will often find rose quartz used in jewelry or as a carving stone.
To polish rose quartz in your rock tumbler, follow the instructions for agate (these will be the general instructions for most tumblers). Rose quartz is easy to work with, but watch out for natural fractures. It is common to have broken pieces come out of each stage. Definitely take these out of the tumbler before continuing on to the next stage.
