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 1lb 5 oz and measures just about 3 inches in diameter. It has wonderful color and quality but there are some small surface scratches I tried to capture in photos. I love its dreamy pink color and wispy inclusions.
