Background: Rose Quartz is a healing stone tied to the pink hue of the heart chakra, where emotional experiences are logged and kept. The heart chakra is located near the center of the chest and balances our ability to give and receive love. This harmonious characteristic is what gave the stone its earliest known use in jewelry and talismans. Ancient Greek and Roman civilizations wore this beaded jewelry as a symbol of an agreement or deal. Egyptians later discovered the healing properties of the quartz, and Greeks and Romans soon tied the stone to love. Ancient lore tells of the Greek God Eros, or Roman God Cupid, gifting humanity with love in the form of rose quartz. Utilizing this gift from above is said to resolve disagreements and harmonize relationships. As it was used throughout history, it has also proved to hold ancient ties in feminine energy in the form of an unconditional love given by the traditional mother figure. This stone is said to open the heart chakra which allows your mind to be open to forgiveness and a deeper connection to your partner or replace the love of a mother or lover that was needed but not fulfilled. It is said that the stone can wash out toxic energies that are trapped within you, convincing you of your lack of deservingness of forgiveness. Utilize this stone to strengthen your own inner seeds of compassion, nourishment, and comfort. Dissolve emotional wounds with Divine love, re-awaken the sleeping beauty of the heart. Allow the gift of giving and receiving love in your center.
