A raw rose quartz gemstone set in a sterling silver necklace. Rose quartz is a gemstone full of rich spiritual history and meaning, a gemstone full of the energy of love. One legend says that Cupid and Eros brought rose quartz to earth in hopes that its beautiful pink color would arouse love and desire among people.
In another legend, Adonis, the lover of the Greek goddess Aphrodite, was attacked by Ares (the god of War) who came in the form of a boar. Aphrodite rushed to save him and caught herself on a briar bush. Their mingled blood stained the white quartz to a pink. Zeus took pity on them and restored Adonis to Aphrodite for six months of the year. Because of this myth, this stone has become a symbol of reconciliation in love.

Wear rose quartz over your heart or place one under your pillow to enhance an existing relationship or rekindle love that is feeling stale. Placed next to your computer rose quartz can prevent headaches and eye fatigue. Cleanse your rose quartz stones once a week under running water.
