Called the Heart Stone, Rose Quartz may have been used as a love stone as early as 600 B.C. and is still an important talisman of relationships.

It supports connection within groups and community, and carries a high spiritual attunement to the Earth, Universe, and the Divine.
Rose Quartz is a mothering crystal, inspiring nurturing of the self if one has lost their own mother. It promotes bonding and is a good stone to place on the stomach during pregnancy, and to take to the hospital to be near the baby during birth. It is also soothing in the days to follow. Placing baby milk or food within a circle of Rose Quartz for a few minutes helps ease colic or feeding difficulties.
To call in love or strengthen a romantic relationship, place pink roses and twin Rose Quartz hearts on a private love altar and light pink candles, or enclose a photo of yourself and a lover within a heart shape of tiny Rose Quartz crystals. Rose Quartz may also be placed by the bed or in the relationship corner of the home to restore trust and harmony, and encourage unconditional love.

Pink Rose Quartz is the most important crystal of the heart and the Heart Chakra, teaching the true essence of love, and purifying and opening the heart at all levels. [Hall, 235]
The Heart Chakra is located near the center of the breastbone and regulates our interaction with the external world and controls what we embrace and what we resist. It gives us the balancing ability to be ourselves within the environment, and helps us in understanding our own needs and emotions clearly. We can deal with the ebbs and flows of emotional relationships, understand their cyclic nature, and accept the changes.
Rose Quartz also balances the yin-yang energy, and can bring all the other chakras into harmony and unity with the Heart. With the power of its light red rays, Rose Quartz gently stimulates the Base Chakra to help rejuvenate the physical body.
Located at the base of the spine, the Base Chakra controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement. It is the foundation of physical and spiritual energy for the body. When it is in balance, the physical body gains strength and spiritual energy is rekindled in the form of security and sense of one's own power.
