Rose Quartz - Stone of Love
Updated: Nov 3
Working with semiprecious stones is a beautiful thing, they all have unique properties and meanings that can affect you in many ways. My personal favourite stone is Rose Quartz.
With its soft pink colouring the Rose Quartz embodies Feminine Energy with a powerful driving force of unconditional love. Rose Quartz is known for its well-being benefits. It can heal the heart chakra (and the rest of the body's chakras) that can give one a deeper sense of fulfillment and happiness, therefore you are able to give love to not only yourself but others.
So, let me tell you a little about Rose Quartz and you might start carrying it around with you throughout the day for a sense of calming when situations get tough.
The Rose Quartz can be found throughout the world such as Madagascar, India, Japan, and Brazil. The first use of Rose Quartz can date back to 700 BC and was used by the Ancient Romans, Greeks, Egyptians and The Assyrians and was used for anti-aging purposes by the Egyptians in facial masks to maintain a youthful glow and therefore attracting love.
The Rose Quartz is said to represent Aphrodite, The Goddess of Love. In the Mythology story it's believed that Adonis was killed by Aphrodite's ex lover Ares, the God of War, in jealousy. When Aphrodite heard Adonis cries for help she rushed to see him cutting herself on a thorn, once she finally reached Adonis sadly she was too late and cradling him their combined powerful and loving blood touched the Quartz beneath them that turned a rose colour and Rose Quartz was created.
I love this story and feel it gives a new meaning to this stunning coloured crystal.
The Rose Quartz not only looks stunning but displayed throughout your house can help with creating a calm and warming environment with its rejuvenating energies it can help you live in a place of compassion. I mean why not surround yourself and home with something beautiful and for others to feel those energies when they come and visit for a cup of tea or for wine?
If you want to gain the most from your crystals you need to increase their healing benefits and properties, as you take care of yourself you need to take care of your crystals. Now, this can be done in a couple of simple ways. The first being when there is a full moon or a new moon placing them outside to bask in this beautiful light for a few hours or the whole evening as the light helps to realign your crystals and enhance their energy benefits and properties. You may also keep them by a window in the sunlight to let the sun rays shine on them to re-energise and align.
I hope you have enjoyed this piece today about Rose Quartz and its history because I believe everyone should be feeling like the Goddess they are. So, why not carry a little around with you if you can? You can carry your crystal in your handbag, purse, bra, and of course, wearing Rose Quartz looks beautiful and perfect for any occasion. Get spreading those positive vibes and sprinkling some love to those that need it!
