Rose Quartz is a pink variety of quartz found in South Africa and Brazil. It is believed to promote the self-love that is essential before love is accepted from others. 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 gets its pinkish color from trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese in the massive material.
