Rose Quartz is the gemstone of love and we REALLY love it. It is one of the most popular gemstones in the world – and not just because of it’s beautiful pink shine.
1. IT RADIATES LOVE & GRACE
The colour pink has long been associated with loving energies, so it should come as no surprise that this beautiful pink stone is a stone of love. Rose Quartz can make us feel loving and trusting towards everyone in our life, including ourselves.
Whether you’re dealing with your partner, children, family, friends or your nightmare boss, the stone is a talisman of love and will help you to transform your negative energy to leave you feeling more peaceful, compassionate, thoughtful and understanding. These emotions create a sense of harmony and well-being. It aids forgiveness and self-forgiveness while reassuring us in times of grief and stress.
Rose Quartz is ideal for helping you to feel connected to your community as well as the earth, the universe and the divine.
Australian model Miranda Kerr said in an interview with The Cut that she always keeps a rose quartz stone in her handbag and a small heart shaped piece in her bra. She explained, “I feel as human beings, that we either come from love or fear. If we have something like that little reminder, like rose quartz, to always come from love and not from fear, it’s a much more expansive place to come from”.
2. IT OPENS THE HEART CHAKRA
Wearing a Rose Quartz pendant necklace – or even just by putting a tumble stone in your bra – helps to keep the loving energies where you need them most: by your heart. Meditating with Rose Quartz provides an envelope of loving energy around yourself and activates the heart chakra. This makes it ideal for emotional well-being because it both opens and realigns the chakra.
The beautiful crystal also stimulates the crown chakra, the third eye and the throat chakra and brings them into harmony and unity with the heart. The lower chakras respond well to the abundance of loving and peaceful energy which flows from the heart when we are around Rose Quartz.
Rose Quartz helps us to release tension, stress, anger and resentment to help us find hope and faith in the universe.
3. PAIRED WITH A GROUNDING STONE, IT WORKS WONDERS
Sometimes we can get caught up in the net, so to speak, and lose sight of what we want to see in our future. It has always been thought that pink and black are colours which ‘fit’ together perfectly and our collection of Rose Quartz and Black Onyx crystal bracelets are no different.
Rose Quartz helps us love while Onyx keeps us grounded, helping us to remember not to give our hearts away too easily. Onyx is a stone of emotional, physical and spiritual security and it pairs well with Rose Quartz to protect our hearts from pain.
4. IT HELPS US HEAL
Associated with all matters of the heart, Rose Quartz is ideal for those recovering from painful experiences, such as a break up or the loss of a loved one. It is calming and soothing, making it ideal for meditating with. It needs cleansing more regularly when it is being used for aiding emotional pain, but it is well worth taking the time to do this.
The beautiful stone calms and clears the mind to assist us in releasing worries, fears, anxiety, resentment and past emotional trauma to help us find hope and faith in the universe.. It clears our emotions of ego-driven patterns and can help us to feel more open to sharing and receiving love, kindness and compassion.
5. IT’S AFFORDABLE
Found across Brazil, Madagascar, the USA and various other countries, Rose Quartz isn’t common but it also isn’t rare. This makes it an affordable stone which is always a good thing when it brings love into our lives.
Many people like to have a piece of Rose Quartz in every room of their home – especially in rooms used for meditation.
6. IT IS SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL
The colour of the beautiful stone ranges from opaque to translucent and even transparent and most transparent pieces are quite foggy. The shades of pink therefore vary from a faintly pale pink which makes it appear to be almost clear quartz in some lights to a deep, fresh pink. Every woman should have some pink jewellery in their collection and Rose Quartz is the ideal crystal for this.
7. IT IS EASY TO CLEANSE
Although Rose Quartz does become discoloured and fade in the sunlight, it can be cleansed in water, whether it is pure or soapy. You can even bathe with Rose Quartz in the water like Jenna Tatum mentioned she does in a YouTube video! It will also not crumble in salt water and can, of course, be cleansed with sage smudge sticks and incense. Find out more ways to cleanse Rose Quartz here.

The crystal heals the heart of wounds and helps us to dissolve our boundaries of isolation and mistrust to reawaken our trust in others. This in turn helps us open up and feel a sense of union with other people. It also dispels fear and suspicion while helping us to love ourselves and realise that we truly deserve love. This helps us to see the positive qualities which others see in us.
11. IT HAS MANY HEALING BENEFITS
Strengthening and balancing the physical heart and circulatory system, Rose Quartz releases impurities from body fluids. Being a stone of love, it’s only right that Rose Quartz can increase fertility and protects mothers and unborn fetuses from miscarriage. It helps to speed up recovery after an illness, reduces high blood pressure and aids chest and lung problems. It is also associated with healing the kidneys and adrenals, provides energetic support for those suffering with leukemia and alleviates vertigo.
12. IT’S IDEAL FOR MEDITATION
Meditation with Rose Quartz increases its loving vibrations and supports the energetic stabilisation of our hearts. It helps with any form of emotional distress such as depression, anxiety and panic attacks and is an aid to those who experience heart palpitations or skipped beats. It also helps soothe irregular heart rhythm.
Place a Rose Quartz crystal in every corner of your meditation room to feel its love and peace radiating from all angles. While meditating, repeat in your mind, or out loud, an affirmation such as “I open my heart to receive and express the energy of love”.
