Rose Quartz is the stone of eternal & unconditional love. It is said to help remove negative energies in the body in order to reinstate the energy of love & self-love. It does particularly well when placed on or around the heart chakra to help clear the body of ego-driven patterns. It can open your heart in order to easily give or receive love & compassion. It has even been used to treat physical ailments such as skin burns, problems with kidneys & adrenal glads.
This Rose Quartz is from the earth in Brazil. It was polished into this sphere shape (said to emit energy in all directions) & the star or asterism is a naturally occurring in high quality rose quartz. Asterisms or Stars are usually 4 or 6 pointed & are an optical phenomenon. This one has a 6 pointed star, just need a direct point of light, or bright sunlight, to witness its beauty. (it moves with the light as well!) Reflection of light from twin-lamellae or from extremely fine needle-shaped acicular inclusions oriented to the stone's crystal structure causes asterism. Energetically it is regarded as an added element of connection to the celestial world. (video on saved instagram stories saved under "NOV 17th")
