THE HISTORY BEHIND ROSE QUARTZ STONE
Rose Quartz, aka “stone of love” and main stone of the heart chakra, dates back thousands of years. Believed to possess powerful qualities of love and healing in numerous cultures around the world and still practiced to this very day.
AS FAR BACK AS 7,000 BC...
Ancient Egyptians held the rose quartz stone in high regard, believing it to prevent aging and preserve beauty. As the goddess of life and fertility, Isis is said to have rubbed the pink stone on her forehead, eyes and cheeks in order to maintain her youthful beauty and ward off wrinkles. This Egyptian practice is still carried out in today’s world.
THE GODS & THE LEGENDS...
Roman and Greek mythology tells a story of Eros, god of love, rumored son of Aphrodite (the goddess of love) and more famously known as Cupid.
As the story goes, Eros brought the beautiful pink hued gemstone down from the heavens to spread loving energy, desire and romance to the world.
And of course....
Rose quartz is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine practices, being said to have positive effects on the heart, stimulating blood flow and circulation. Also said to be an anti-inflammatory, they believe it to cure respiratory diseases and infections.
