It’s been two weeks since my last gemstone focus, and I’ve been itching to write another! This week we’ll take a look at rose quartz, another one of my favorites. I have a lot of rose quartz in my collection, including both polished pieces and raw crystals. I often use this lovely pink stone to help focus positive affirmations in my morning routine; it has a strong presence in my space.

I’ve already talked a little bit about rose quartz here (“My Favorite Stones for Self Love”) and here (“Mama Care Packages…”).

Rose quartz is a calming stone with a high energy. It’s believed to open the heart to all kinds of love, as well as foster empathy and forgiveness. The stone can clear residual negative energy from the mind.

Other common attributes| calming; reassuring; stone of infinite peace and unconditional love; purifies and opens the heart; invokes self-trust and self-worth

Believed metaphysical attributes| chakra: heart; astrological signs: Taurus, Libra

Rose quartz can be found in Brazil, India, Japan, South Africa, and parts of the United States.
