INTRODUCTION TO ROSE QUARTZ
Rose Quartz is quite a common variation within the Quartz family, gaining its gentle pink hues from microscopic hairs within the Silicon Dioxide Structure. It is these ‘hairs’ that reflect back the pink hues the denser these hairs the more vivid and stunning the colours. These hairs can also cause Rose Quartz to show stars, also known as asterism. Rose Quartz is most often found in rough masses, and only occasionally forms terminated crystals, once again this is due to these microscopic hairs preventing terminations from forming with ease.

Rose Quartz is a very common mineral, and as such, it can be found in almost every country around the world. Rose Quartz is most typically mined in Brazil, and Madagascar. Notable finds include Maine in the United States of America, and the Sapucaia Mine in Minas Gerais, Brazil.

SPIRITUAL AND EMOTIONAL HEALING
Rose Quartz is a powerful crystal that provides the energy of just pure love and bliss, tapping into the energy of the divine feminine and helping to spread love, compassion, and kindness wherever the energy is needed most. Rose Quartz will help when you’re heading into a tricky situation where the energy is tense and angered; helping to diffuse built-up energies and allow the flow of compassion and kindness.
This crystal can help heal you from any past traumas, going directly to the source of the pain, allowing the mind to forgive and forget, while allowing the soul to free itself from these spiritual anchors. It’s advised to keep a grounding stone such as Black Tourmaline nearby as these experiences can often be quite emotional. Rose Quartz, while kind in its nature, needs to be controlled, to help ensure you’re not forgiving those who don’t deserve it. This crystal will help you to see the intentions behind one’s actions so that this forgiveness can be given to only those who deserve it.
Rose Quartz is often known as ‘The Stone of Unconditional Love’, helping you to omit the energy of unconditional love to those who deserve it, whether it’s someone just having a hard day in the work environment, or your soulmate at home. This crystal will help you to have a strong spiritual connection to those you consider part of your family.
Rose Quartz strengthens and balances the physical heart and circulatory system. This can help with recovery after injury or surgery. Rose Quartz can help release impurities from within the blood while helping to reduce high blood pressure and alleviate vertigo.
Rose Quartz is also considered a totem of fertility and helps protect both mother and child and can be used alongside Malachite for a ‘powerhouse’ of energy.
