Rose Quartz is a silicon dioxide crystal. It is a stone of the heart, a Crystal of Unconditional Love - for others, but also and strongly for oneself.
It is dissolving emotional wounds, fears and resentments and a great stone to get through deep sorrow. Re-awakening the heart to its own innate love, it provides a deep sense of personal fulfilment and contentment, allowing one the capacity to truly give and receive love from others.
Physically, it is considered to be very beneficial for the heart as well, and for blood circulation.
