A crystal that derives its name from its lovely rose pink colour; these quartz crystals come naturally in a range of beautiful shades of pink.
Called the Heart Stone, Rose Quartz may have been used as a love token as early as 600 BC and is still an important talisman of relationships. It is said to be quite effective in attracting new love, romance and intimacy, or in developing a closer bond with family or friends. Prized in the ancient world for its powers of physical beautification, facial masks of Rose Quartz have been recovered from Egyptian tombs, thought by the Egyptians and Romans to clear the complexion and prevent wrinkles. It was also a stone honoured by the Tibetan and Oriental cultures.
