Rose Quartz is the quintessential stone of love love for oneself, one's life partner, children, family, friends, community, the Earth, the Universe and the Divine. Meditating with one of these stones provides an envelope of love energy around oneself and activates the heart chakra for the emanation of one's innate love. Rose Quartz helps dissolve one's boundaries of isolation and mistrust and moves one into the sense of union with the All that is the essence at the core of the heart. Healing the heart of its wounds and reawakening its trust is one of Rose Quartz's gifts. Its soothing vibrations are a balm to the emotions, and they calm and cleanse the entire auric eld. It engenders the release of tension and stress, the dissolution of anger and resentment, the dispelling of fear and suspicion, and the rebirth of hope and faith in the benevolence of the Universe. Rose Quartz is clearly feminine in tone, and it is one of the stones of the Great Mother. It not only activates the human heart chakra it also links one's personal heart to the heart of the Earth and the Heart of the Universe. Its love vibrations can penetrate down to the cellular level, reprogramming the cells for joy and longevity rather than despair and death. This reprogramming capacity is the source of the healing potential of Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz is one of the most important stones to wear; to use in meditation, sleep and body layouts, and to keep in one's environment. Rose Quartz can stimulate the crown chakra, (energy center in the body) third eye and throat chakra, bringing them into harmony and unity with the heart.
