Crystal of the Month: Rose Quartz

The color of roses and the ultimate symbol of love, rose quartz has been used in love rituals and ceremonies for centuries. Rose quartz is a member of the quartz family, which is made up of silicon dioxide. It gets its soft-pink color from the many tiny inclusions of pink fibers known as dumortierite, which is embedded within the glassy stone.

Ancient Greece and Rome were the first to attach the symbol of love to the rose quartz. According to myth, Cupid, the Roman god of desire, and Eros, the Greek god of love, gave humans the gift of love in the form of rose quartz. Another legend tells the story of rose quartz and its powers of love and reconciliation. When Adonis was attacked by Adonis was attacked by Ares, who was in the shape of a boar, his lover Aphrodite came running to his aide.

Along the way, she got caught on a briar bush and by the time she found her lover, a mix of their blood started to soak into the quartz stone giving rose quartz its iconic rosy pink hue. In Native American cultures, the rose quartz meaning was used to soothe negative emotions like anger and disappointment by bringing love into newly harmonized emotions.

Rose quartz is one of the most popular crystal healing tools. Rose quartz enhances love of all kinds, including kindness for yourself, loved ones, and all living things. It can also soothe your emotions by bringing the heart chakra into balance.
