What is Rose Quartz?

Known as the Stone of Unconditional Love, Rose Quartz is the crystal to turn to when you need to give your Heart Chakra some tlc.  This pale pink gemstone is perhaps one of the most well known and loved of all crystals.  Its rosy hues can vary from palest, almost white pink to a deep purply pink. 

It is referenced that beads of Rose Quartz dating back to 7000 BC were found in Mesopotamia.  Coveted by ancient Assyrian, Roman and Egyptian civilisations, its uses included talismans, jewellery and seals of ownership.  The Egyptians believed that it prevented ageing and used it for face masks.

Rose Quartz Benefits

In order for us to give and receive love, we must first love ourselves.  Not in an egotistical way, but in a way that allows us to be fully accepting of ourselves.  Rose Quartz helps us to invite compassion, unconditional love and acceptance into our hearts.

When our heart energy centre is in harmony we are able to see the beauty all around us and feel gratitude for the good things in our lives.
