Rose quartz carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort. It speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, dissolving emotional wounds, fears and resentments. Called the Heart Stone, Rose Quartz may have been used as a love token as early as 600 B.C. and is still an important talisman of relationships. It carries a high spiritual attunement to the Earth, Universe, and the Divine. It is quite effective in attracting new love, romance and intimacy, or in developing a closer bond with family or friends. Rose Quartz also inspires the love of beauty, in self and others, in nature, and especially that which stimulates the imagination - art, music and the written word.
