Rose quartz is the "Love Stone" and opens the heart chakra. It is a stone for every type of love: self-love, family, platonic, romantic, and unconditional. Rose quartz is used to raise self-esteem and a strong sense of self-worth. Its loving energies teach us to apply this love to ourselves and thereby find ourselves more worthy. Emotionally, rose quartz is used to balance emotions and bring peace and calm. This calm emotional balance brings stress relief and easing of anxiety.
Physically rose quartz is used in crystal healing to benefit the heart, the circulatory system, migraines, throat problems, depression, addictions, and slowing signs of ageing. Rose quartz aids fertility and is also helpful and protective during pregnancy and with childbirth.
