Properties of Rose Quartz

So, lets talk about the stone of universal love – Rose Quartz, also known as Hyaline Quartz. This perfect stone is full of loving vibes of all types.

One of the most powerful forms of love is self-love.

Whether you prefer raw rose quartz or tumbled rose quartz with a smoother outer appearance, this doesn’t make a difference. The tumbling process smooths out the stone but does not detract anything. Raw stones can be slightly more fragile, in general.

On a physical level, Rose Quartz is known to be good for the circulatory system with benefits for your health and physical heart, and on an emotional level this stone can have a positive impact on emotional wounds, as you connect with feelings of pure love, feelings of peace and self forgiveness.

This love stone is connected with a deep feminine energy, and it is a powerful tool to connect with some deep inner healing as you benefit from the positive energy and peace that this gemstone can bring.

Rose quartz can be found in Brazil, South Africa, and in the Black Hills of South Dakota in the United States.

The zodiac signs which can benefit even more from Rose Quartz stones, are Libra and Taurus

Symptoms of a blockage of the heart chakra include depression, loneliness and finding it hard to feel empathy, while problems with the throat chakra can relate to feeling silenced, and can cause problems with communication and self esteem.

The difference between a rose quartz roller and a jade roller is that the rose quartz is a cooler stone, and will not warm with the body heat of your face.

Taking the time to focus your care on your face and skin is also a great time to build in some positive affirmations to your morning or night time routine.

Before adding the stone to the water spend some time holding it in your hands, setting your intentions and infusing it with your love.

You can also charge it in the moon light (best done at full moon) before adding your crystal to the water.
