Rose Quartz is a form of quartz, silicon dioxide, with natural color attributed to microscopic inclusions of a pink variety of the mineral dumortierite, abundant enough to make the rose quartz translucent instead of transparent.Many call it 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. Energy healers believe it does particularly well when placed on or around the heart chakra to help clear the body of ego-driven patterns. It's believed to open your heart in order to easily give or receive love & compassion.
This Rose Quartz is from the earth in Brazil. It was polished into this sphere shape (said to emit energy in all directions) It weighs just under 1.5lbs (1lb 7.6oz) and measures just about over 3 inches in diameter. It has wonderful color and quality but there are some small surface scratches I tried to capture in photos.
