The crystal of gentle love, rose quartz has an affinity to the heart chakra. It is the crystal of peacemaking and is associated with practical gestures of concern. The “heart stone”, rose quartz is the crystal of reconciliation.
Rose quartz will ease pain or tension, cuts or bruises, and emotional wounds, such as grief, stress, fear or anger. It keeps away nightmares and helps to avoid addictive behaviours, especially food disorders associated with a poor self-image. Rose quartz can, initially, release suppressed emotions.
Rose quartz is an excellent stone for bringing peace. It is also good for ongoing protection against intrusion or spite. Place a large piece of unpolished rose quartz with a pointed end in your personal work space.
