Known as the ‘inner peace’ stone, Rose Quartz is widely believed to emit a calming, cooling energy that works on all the chakras to gently remove negativity and reinstate the calm, gentle force of self-love. It restores tranquillity and clarity after times of chaos or crisis. Rose Quartz opens the crown and brow chakras producing gentleness from within and around the user. It can restore peace and understanding to a relationship or friendship. Rose Quartz has been used to remove impurities and excess fluids from the body. It is also believed by some to soften the complexion and reduce wrinkles. Despite its name, Rose Quartz has more in common with Calcite than the Quartz family. It grows in masses, as opposed to the usual six sided points of Quartz.
Large pieces are often used in places of healing and meditation rooms. It is an excellent healer of the ‘first wound’, which helps us to come to terms with the underlying cause. However, it does it in a gentle, calming way that attunes to one’s own pace. (First wound is the cause from which the illness, disease or issues began. It can be from a long time ago or something that could be considered unrelated or even trivial. However, finding the trigger is a major part in finding a healing or cure. )
