Rose Quartz - The Care and Properties

              

 

 

Rose Quartz is a gentle pink streaked with clear and white. It is translucent and considered “The Stone of the Heart,” the stone of unconditional love and relationships.

 

It is a part of the quartz family with a harness of 7.0 on the Mohs scale. This is hard enough to withstand wear and tear that comes from a ring set with it and sometimes bumped. It will not crack too easily.

Mineral properties and origins:

It is one of the most common stones in the quartz family and can be found all over the world. Its reddish color comes from amounts of titanium, iron or manganese in the stone and sometimes it can have some rutile fibers that create a “cat’s Eye” or even a “star” effect in the stone. It was used expensively in Asia for carvings and can still be found all over China in both small and large carvings.

 

Care:

Rose quartz is easy to care for, does not fade in sunlight (as some stones will do) and is durable enough to wear in rings and necklaces that get wear and tear. It is relatively inexpensively prices due to its abundance and easy to cut into a variety of shapes and sizes.

Properties of Rose Quartz:

This stone has been used for centuries as a talisman for love. It helps to strengthen existing relationships and/or attract new ones. It brings love, and intimacy. As a love stone, it inspires a love for all things beautiful, whether it is in nature or in other people. It can enhance creativity of all kinds and grounds one in the magnificence of the universe.
