Rose Quartz certainly earned the nickname “The love stone”. But when we consider love here, we’re not talking about a crystal designed to win the affection of others. Rose quartz is all about self-love, and self-appreciation. Its warm energy is geared to open us up to the love around us, by breaking down internal barriers. The relationship we have with ourselves is the most important one, and through the relaxing mellow effects of the crystal’s aura, you will find the space, time, and capacity to really invest in your relationship with yourself. Additional effects include smoothing of skin as well as relief from headaches and other stress related symptoms.
