The Rose Quartz, with its gentle pink essence is said to be a stone of the heart; a Crystal of Unconditional Love. Carrying a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, most believe it to supply nourishment and comfort. Those who study the metaphysical properties of gemstones believe that the rose quartz 'reawakens' the heart to love; that it provides a deep sense of personal fulfilment and contentment, allowing one the capacity to truly give and receive love from others. This stone is predominantly found in Brazil and Madagascar.
Rose Quartz also inspires the love of beauty in self and others, in nature, and especially in creative components of life such as art, music and the written word. Rose quartz is also used to raise self-esteem and a strong sense of self-worth. Supposedly, its loving energies teach us to apply this love to ourselves and thereby find ourselves more worthy.
Called the Heart Stone, Rose Quartz may have been used as a love token as early as 600 B.C. and is still an important talisman of relationships. Said to be effective in attracting new love, romance and intimacy, or in developing a closer bond with family or friends, it has been dubbed 'The Love Stone'.Simple Bezel Set Rose Quartz Cabochon Rose Gold Stud Earrings ($65.99)
Rose Quartz, a silicon dioxide crystal, is one of the most common varieties of the Quartz family. Its name is derived from its soft rose colour, which ranges from very pale pink to deep reddish-pink and the most prized, a beautiful peachy pink. It usually occurs in massive form, though it sometimes grows in clusters of small prismatic crystals. It varies in clarity from opaque to translucent to a foggy transparency.
Rose Quartz is also called Pink Quartz or Hyaline Quartz, from the Greek halos, meaning "glass," and was often referred to as the gemstone of Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Love.An ancient interpretation of the Greek Goddess Aphrodite
