Raw Rose Quartz
Raw Rose Quartz is always a favorite. It is beautiful and speaks to the giving and receiving of love.
“Rose quartz is a powerful healing crystal,” says crystal healer and reiki master Keith Birch, owner of KSC Crystals. “Its soft, gentle, almost pastel pale pink coloring is a good indication of its most commonly known property: that of pure love. It’s a stone of both giving and receiving love.” (reference 3)
Rose quartz meaning varies throughout cultures, but the soft pink stone is often tied to gentleness, love, and fertility. (reference 1)
It comes as no surprise that the Rose Quartz meaning is that of universal love. Here is a crystal so ripe with healing properties, so drenched in harmony, and so tender that you will always want it close to you, or at least in a place you can turn to time and time again. Like all the ancient and highly revered stones of the world, Rose Quartz was crafted into precious jewelry by the Assyrians back in 800 BC. Since then, this soft and bright quartz has passed from civilization to civilization; making peace with the Greeks, preventing the signs of aging in the Egyptians, and used as a claim of ownership during Roman times. All believed in the passionate power of the rare and regal Rose Quartz. (reference 2)
