Rose Quartz Gemstone


Rose quartz came to be known as the stone of love and reconciliation from the Greek myth about Aphrodite and Adonis. Their blood was commingled when Aphrodite was cut by a thorn bush while saving Adonis from an attack by Ares (disguised as a wild boar). Their blood stained white quartz to make it a rose-pink color. Later, it became customary for the Romans to use the stone as a gift of love.

For Romans and Egyptians, rose quartz stone meaning was beauty. It was being used in facial masks and cosmetic products as an anti-aging component. On the other hand, Americans connect with the crystal to achieve balance and peace. Rose quartz crystal meaning for them is akin to personal growth and well-being. In East Asia, it was used as a token of love and had been widely used and honored in their carvings and lucky charms. 

During the '90s, mineralogists discovered that rose quartz and pink quartz are different by examining unique crystalline specimens. Rose Quartz’s color is always even and does not form a single crystal while pink quartz’s color is unstable and normally forms a single crystal. The characteristics and the difference between the two have been developed over time and the meaning of rose quartz has been identified. The rich history of this semi-precious stone and its popularity makes it a true gem over the centuries and it is cherished worldwide.


Rose quartz is associated with love, the heart and beauty, and is thought to be a healing aid for the heart chakra.
