Rose quartz has been popular among the masses as the stone that promotes love and opens the heart chakra. This is a stone that is used for every type of love, be it self-love, family, platonic, romantic or unconditional. This crystal possesses so much vibrant positive energy inside it that it can heal darkest of the auras and make one feel pleasant, loving and caring all over again. The lovely rosy or dusky pink appearance of this stone is enough to make you fall in love with it. But apart from its healing properties, the rose quartz does have some other interesting facts associated with it, which are not known by many. Some of these facts are listed below:
1. Rose quartz has been used as a gemstone or as an ornament and religious object for thousands of years. Ancient civilizations considered it a symbol of love and beauty. They used this crystal in the form of ornaments during auspicious occasions to promote love and a healthy relationship.
2. Rose quartz crystals are very rare. Currently, they are found only in countries like Madagascar, India, Germany and a few places in the USA. Earlier most of the rose quartz was extracted from a site near Custer, South Dakota, but now a majority of the good-quality rose-quartz is sourced from Brazil.
3. According to a legend, the rose quartz was created when Greek god Adonis was attacked by the God of War, Ares. Goddess Aphrodite cut herself on a bush while saving him and their blood collected on the white quartz stone and stained it pink, thus forming rose quartz.
4. This powerful stone requires frequent charging. Rose quartz tends to lose its energy while healing and hence should be recharged on a regular basis. Running water can be used to clean the rose quartz. To recharge it, just place the rose quartz under the moon light and it will be as good as new.
5. Egyptian tombs contained face masks carved out of rose quartz. This was done because the Egyptians believed that rose quartz had properties that would clear the complexion and prevent wrinkles for anyone who wore it.
