Rose Quartz: the Benefits

Today a delivery of gorgeous pastel pink Rose Quartz beads arrived, in all shapes and sizes, and it seemed the perfect opportunity to tell you a little about this ever so pretty pink gem.

Rose Quartz is commercially mined in Madagascar, South-Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, India, U.S.A. and Brazil, where mine have come from.  Its colour can vary from very bright pink to almost purple, but it is most famous for being a very feminine rosy pink.  You will find that its natural colour is so lovely, and often so perfectly even that dying or enhancing is not needed.  It is exactly as Nature intended!

The Heart Stone

Often referred to as the Heart Stone or the Love Magnet, Rose Quartz is the crystal of unconditional love!  It has been used in love rituals and ceremonies for centuries, and remains an important talisman of relationships.  It is quite effective in attracting new love, romance and intimacy, or in developing a closer bond with family or friends.  It speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, dissolving emotional wounds, fears and resentments, and circulates a loving energy throughout the entire aura.  It supports connection within groups and community.  It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort.  The Rose Quartz property of restoring trust is one of its most powerful and important uses.  The heart cannot move on from hurt into renewed trust until it fully understands and accepts past situations.  Rose Quartz remedies this by dispelling feelings of fear and suspicion which poison the outlook.  Reawakening the heart to its own innate love, it provides a deep sense of personal fulfilment and contentment, allowing one the capacity to truly give and receive love from others.

It’s not just romantic love that Rose Quartz crystal embodies.  The stone’s meaning is one of unconditional love. It facilitates love entering your life through its ability to bring your consciousness to a higher level.  Rose Quartz can help you to forgive, understand, and see fights or situations from a different perspective.  Its healing properties will imbue you with the wisdom to deepen your connection with your partner.  In that same way, Rose Quartz properties provide gentle energy that assists you in recognising your own need for compassion.  It allows you to see that you deserve forgiveness and understanding from yourself.
