Looking for love? Keep Rose Quartz close!
Rose Quartz is well known for being pretty in pink. It’s a relatively common stone, which could make it easy to overlook when stocking your crystal collection. It’s easy for the eye to wander to more exotic or unusual options! But Rose Quartz is powerful, making it the perfect addition to home decor, office desk, or meditation nook.
Rose Quartz is a pink sister stone to the common yet powerful Clear Quartz with shades varying from soft and pale to bright and vibrant. It can be found all over the world including Madagascar, Brazil, India, and the United States.
Used as a love token as early as 600 BC, Rose Quartz is associated with attracting love and beauty with legends dating back to Ancient Greece and Egypt. According to Greek legend, Rose Quartz came about in a rather tragic fashion. Ares, the god of war, was jealous and desired to kill Aphrodite’s lover Adonis. He attacked Adonis in the form of a boar. While Aphrodite was trying to save Adonis, she cut herself on a briar bush. Her blood covered a Quartz crystal and stained the stone pink.
