One of my favorite stones is rose quartz. It is inexpensive, rather pretty and easily found. It is used in jewelry making, grid work, elixirs and for healing. It is commonly found both in the United States and in Brazil.
This pink stone relates to the heart chakra & is thought to help one with love and healing. Unlike red garnet which is thought to foster physical love, rose quartz is the stone of SELF LOVE. Which is in fact where all love begins. After all, how can we truly love someone else when we cannot love ourselves?
The gentle energy of rose quartz reminds us to ease up and not be so tough on ourselves. It is thought to aide us in emotional healing and greatly enhances compassion. It is said to help remove negativity from oneself and bring a calmness to the mind, something many of us could benefit from. If you are working on past traumas it is an excellent stone to assist you.
Rough, tumbled or carved Rose Quartz makes a nice piece to add to your collection.
The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.
