Rose quartz has long been associated as a symbol of love, ever since ancient civilisations in Greece and Rome spoke of the legends. According to myth, Cupid, the Roman god of desire, and Eros, the Greek god of love, gave us the ultimate gift of love in the form of Rose Quartz.
With its gentle pink essence, soft feminine energy and understanding, Rose Quartz is a crystal of unconditional love.
Rose Quartz inspires the love of beauty, in oneself, others, and all living things.
Rose Quartz is a powerful aphrodisiac, stimulating sensual imagination because of its tenderness and sensuality. Because of these properties, it can be effective in attracting new love, strengthening a romantic relationship, and encouraging intimacy. Carry or wear Rose Quartz on a first date, or if you already have a partner, place a crystal beside your bed or in a corner of your home to restore trust and harmony, and encourage a deeper love.
Rose Quartz is a mothering crystal, and can promote bonding during and after a pregnancy. Lay some Rose Quartz on the mother's stomach during pregnancy, and take a crystal to the hospital during birth. Place near the baby to enhance bonding with the mother and father, and also soothe in the days following the birth.
Rose Quartz is a crystal of the heart chakra. If you've been holding onto negativity, Rose Quartz can help you heal by replacing those dark thoughts with pureness and love. It opens you up to inner peace, and allows more room for love and kindness; for yourself and others.
If you're going through grief, Rose Quartz can comfort with its calming and reassuring properties.
