Rose Quartz is the crystal of unconditional love. This pink variety of quartz attracts love from others, builds self-love, and promotes inner healing. A fine healer, this “love stone” can restore trust and harmony by warding off negative energies and bringing in gentle, kind vibrations. Some say that if Rose Quartz is placed by the bed or relationship corner of a home, it will attract love and strengthen relationships. This is also a crystal of creativity and imagination, assisting with writing, art, and music. Above all, Rose Quartz seeks to teach its carrier that love can be created and found inside and out.
