Rose Quartz is a member of the Quartz family, a silicon dioxide crystal with a hardness of 7. Its crystal system is hexagonal (trigonal). It usually occurs in massive form but sometimes grows in clusters of small prismatic crystals.
Its name is derived from its color, which ranges from very pale pink to deep reddish pink. Its clarity can range from opaque to translucent to transparent, although most transparent pieces are rather foggy. In some specimens, traces of Rutile within the stone cause six-rayed stars in cabochons or spheres.
You will often see rose quartz with white lines – those are healed fractures rich in fluid inclusions. Depending on the trace amounts of impurities it contains, quartz may look colorless (no impurities), light pink (titanium, iron, or manganese), milky white (tiny bubbles of gas or liquid), purple (iron), yellow (iron), or brown (extra silicon).
Rose Quartz is found in Brazil, Madagascar, and in the USA.
Rose Quartz is calming for the mind, assisting one in releasing worry, fear, anxiety, and past emotional trauma. It clears the emotional body of ego-driven patterns and can help one feel more open to receiving and sharing Love, compassion, and kindness.
Rose Quartz is a gentle stabilizing stone to use for physical heart trauma and imbalance. It can help the heart make the shift from stress-based physiology to the higher frequencies of Love-based physiology.
Placing a good-sized chunk of Rose Quartz in each room of one’s house can fill the entire structure with its gentle energies, keeping the energy of love in focus for all who live there.
For one’s meditation or sleeping room, a Rose Quartz in every corner is not overdoing it. At work, a Rose Quartz around one’s neck or on one’s desk can keep one’s interactions with others in the highest possible state of harmony.
Rose Quartz is probably one of the most important stones to wear; to use in meditation, sleep, and body layouts, and to keep in one’s environment.
