Rose Quartz Properties and Meanings
Have you ever wondered how stones and crystals are formed, particularly rose quartz? Rose quartz and other stones and crystals are formed when magma is pushed towards the earth’s crust and combines with different minerals along the way.
When this magma cools down, the different elements and minerals are bonded together to form a quartz crystal. The rose quartz crystal is found in many pegmatite locations in the world, but commercially mined in the USA in the Southern Black Hills area in South Dakota, as well as in countries like Brazil, South Africa, India, Japan, Namibia, and Madagascar.
It derives its name from its pretty rose-pink color, and from the Greek word ‘hyalos’, which means glass. The rose quartz crystal comes in different and beautiful shades of pink. Sometimes it’s almost purple in color. Oftentimes, it can be grainy, hazy, and cloudy in appearance, too.
Rose quartz is often called the “Love Stone.” It’s energetic hallmark is that of unconditional love that opens the heart chakra. This makes rose quartz a stone for every type of love: self-love, family, platonic, romantic, and unconditional. As a variety of quartz, rose quartz has high energy, and this strong energy can enhance love in virtually any situation.
Scientists believe that the color of the rose quartz is a result of the impurities of titanium, manganese and iron. But the minerals in the rose quartz are definitely what give the pink color and appearance.
It’s also known as pink quartz or hyaline quartz. It’s often a large translucent mass, usually coarsely crystalline and without external faces.
The rose quartz goes by the name of the Love Stone because it sends off strong vibrations of love, happiness, warmth, and emotional health. It possesses energy related to the heart chakra.

Cleansing and Clearing your Crystal:
it is very important to clean and cleanse your crystals, so your crystal only has your energy on it..
Do not share your crystals they are adapted to your energy only..
Each crystal you receive or new item you should always clean and cleanse
when your crystal gets delivered and leaves me it is touched by many hands which is exposing your crystals to many levels of energy touching your parcel,
Crystals hold the energy imprint of the last person they touched,
Cleanse your crystals when you first receive them and after using them with others to ensure they are attuned to your energy vibrations..
There are many ways to cleanse crystals, some will be damaged by water so if you are not sure use another method other than water.
