Rose Quartz and other stones and crystals are formed when magma is pushed towards the earth’s crust and combines with different minerals along the way.
When this magma cools down, the different elements and minerals are bonded together to form a quartz crystal.
The rose quartz crystal is found in many pegmatite locations in the world, but commercially mined in the USA in the Southern Black Hills area in South Dakota, as well as in countries like Brazil, South Africa, India, Japan, Namibia, and Madagascar.
It derives its name from its pretty rose-pink color, and from the Greek word ‘hyalos’, which means glass. The rose quartz crystal comes in different and beautiful shades of pink.
Rose quartz is often called the “Love Stone.” It’s energetic hallmark is that of unconditional love that opens the heart chakra. This makes rose quartz a stone for every type of love: self-love, family, platonic, romantic, and unconditional.
