Rose Quartz is a pink variety of quartz. It is found on every continent and its hardness is 7. The largest deposits come from South Dakota in the USA. Its color ranges from nearly white to deep red-pink, and some is of faceting clarity. Crystals are rare.
Mystic Lore: Intuitive sources say that Rose Quartz is the stone for the enhancement of love in all its forms. It is said to be emotionally soothing and supportive, to help heal the pains of past emotional wounds, and to release stress.
Rose Quartz harmonizes with most heart stones, including Rhodonite, Pink Calcite, Pink Tourmaline, Rhodocrosite, Morganite, Emerald, and Tsavorite Garnet. Moldavite activates Rose Quartz's capacity to effect spiritual transformation through the power of love. Phenacite, Natrolite and Scolecite enhance one's ability to use Rose Quartz as a window to Divine love.
