Called the Heart Stone, Rose Quartz has been used as a love token as early as 600 B.C. and is still an important gemstone used for love and relationships. It's very effective in attracting new love, romance and intimacy, or in developing a closer bond with family and friends. Rose Quartz purifies and opens the heart at all levels to promote love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing and feelings of peace. Calming and reassuring, it helps to comfort in times of grief. Rose Quartz dispels negativity and protects against environmental pollution, replacing it with loving vibes.
