From the beautiful mountains of Japan and the coasts of Madagascar to the jungles of Brazil, the lustrous Rose Quartz can be seen across nearly every corner of the world. Like other ancient, infamous stones, Rose Quartz was crafted into intricate talismans by civilizations ranging from the Assyrians, as early as 800 BC., to the Egyptians. Many equate the Egyptians appearance of slow aging to the prevalence of Rose Quartz in their culture. Beads of Rose Quartz have even been found in ancient ruins in Mesopotamia, the area of the earliest recorded civilizations. Rose Quartz has a large range of pink hues, ranging from soft and silky, to near violet. This gemstone oozes love, health, and vitality. Like sunrise after a rainstorm, Rose Quartz’s blushing hue lends itself to the art of romance. However, it doesn't end there; healing communication with family, self-care, and fulfilling filial love is sure to find their way into your life.
