Called the Heart Stone, Rose Quartz has historically been an important talisman of relationships. It is quite effective in attracting new love, romance and intimacy, or in developing a closer bond with family or friends. It supports connection within groups and community, and carries a high spiritual attunement to the Earth, Universe, and the Divine. Rose Quartz is one of the most common varieties of the quartz family. It is found around the world and occurs only in massive form, with no crystal faces, edges or terminations. Its name comes from its soft rose color, which ranges from very pale pink to deep reddish-pink and is due to trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese in the massive material.
