Is this a rose quartz?

I see some crystal clear pink on a few parts of the stone. I found this beautiful stone on the beach. What do you think?

    I would not call that rose quartz.  But you can if you find that the "rosiness" of the obvious quartz portions are adequate to your opinion.  There is no quantitative rule about what is "rose" quartz.  It is quartz that has a (usually fairly obvious) rose (pink) coloration.

    Not a great pic. You will need to get someone local to put hands on it to really tell. You might try asking on this Reddit thread with a better picture or two.
