Rose quartz for beginners

What is Rose Quartz?

Rose quartz is a type of quartz crystal that has been coloured by inclusions of titanium, iron and manganese. These minerals are responsible for the pink hue. Rose quartz is found all over the world, but it's most well-known as being mined in Brazil and Madagascar. It's also known as rosa de Brasil (Brazilian rose) or rosa do Brasil (Brazilian rose). The name "rose" comes from its colour-the same way that pink roses are named after their colour rather than their botanical classification. Rose quartz was used for thousands of years as jewellery and decoration before being discovered by scientists in 1797 by Nicolas-Louis Vauquelin at Mont Saint Hilaire near Montreal Quebec Canada


Rose Quartz Benefits

Rose quartz is known for its healing properties. It helps to calm the mind and body, increases focus and concentration, promotes relaxation and peace of mind, and can be used for crystal healing. Rose quartz has a gentle pink colour that makes it easy to spot in your collection or on display in your home. Rose quartz is often used as an alternative to traditional gemstones because it's so affordable! If you're looking for something new to add to your collection of crystals or want an inexpensive way to start practising crystal healing techniques with stones then rose quartz may be right up your alley!


Types of Rose Quartz Crystals

Rose quartz comes in many varieties: rose quartz geodes, clusters and tumbled stones. Rose Quartz crystals are also available as raw stones that you can use for your own crystal healing practice.


How to Care for a Rose Quartz Crystal

  • To care for your rose quartz crystal, you should clean it regularly with a soft cloth and warm water and mild soap. Store your crystal in an appropriate place away from direct sunlight.

  • Charge it regularly by holding an intention while meditating with it nearby or placing it on an altar where you can see it every day.
