If that's the case, then the Rose Quartz crystal is for you. This familiar feminine and softly colored pink quartz has many healing benefits.
Read on to see what is the Rose Quartz meaning and how to use it in your healing journey.
Rose Quartz: A History
The gentle pink Rose Quartz crystal has been used by human civilizations since 7000 B.C! It was found in the then Mesopotamia region (now Iraq).
It was also used by the Assyrians in 800-600 B.C.
As you can see, the Rose Quartz stone has a long relationship of healing and benefiting human beings. Rose Quartz was used by ancient Roman, Greek, and Egyptian civilizations as a potent talisman.
It was also believed to have magical powers and to prevent aging. Not only that, but it has been used in healing potions, and has been also called the 'Love stone'. Love potions, anyone?
The great thing about the Rose Quartz crystal is that it's found in abundance throughout the world. The main countriesthat it's found in are South Africa, Sri Lanka, Brazil, India, and Madagascar.
It's found in massive quantities in hydrothermal veins, and pegmatites, which are extreme igneous rocks formed during the final stages of magma crystallization.
Fun fact: The pink in the Rose Quartz crystal comes from the mineral dumortierite. Use this tidbit at your next dinner party to spark an interesting gemology conversation.
What Does Rose Quartz Do?
It isn't merely due to the pretty pink color that the Rose Quartz crystal has remained so popular with the human populace since times gone past. The Rose Quartz benefits are many.
And they are mostly related to relationships, which makes it a quite useful gemstone to have around. Let's see some of them below.
Compared to other gemstones, Rose Quartz isn't as powerful or dynamic of a healer. But that doesn't negate its effectiveness in gently and slowly releasing powerful negative emotions that have held you back for a while.
The great thing about this gentle release is that it's easier to sustain and deal with. Some other stones can be quite powerful and determined in helping you let go of old traumas and wounds.
But sometimes what you need is a gentle helping hand that slowly guides you to release and heal. The Rose Quartz is exactly this benign helping hand.
If you have any childhood fears, traumas, or anger that you wish to let go of, the Rose Quartz crystal can help you with that. Not only that, but it helps you build a stronger bond with your family and loved ones.
Everyone could do with more love and compassion for their loved ones and the Rose Quartz heart stone can help you inculcate this in your heart and soul.
