Rose Quartz was one of the very first crystals I added to my collection and really connected to on a spiritual level. It’s also now the most abundant crystal I own in my collection. Rose Quartz is an amazing go-to crystal for anytime you are feeling down, lonely, sad, or in need of some extra love. Its energy is very gentle, which is perfect for sensitive souls (empaths, lightworkers, introverts), like myself. It can be used at all times of the day and in any room in the household to bring in an abundance of unconditional love into your life. If there was one crystal that encompassed the mission and energy behind what we stand for as Lovingthyselfrocks, it would hands down be Rose Quartz. If you are beginning your journey to loving yourself unconditionally, keep a Rose Quartz crystal on you at all times. Still to this day, I am either wearing rose quartz or have it near me because I always want to be vibrating at the highest vibration humanly possible and that is the vibration of unconditional love.
Fun Fact: High quality rose quartz can have a 4-ray or 6-ray star that is seen when held in direct light. This star is due to needle-like inclusions of rutile that are aligned perpendicularly to the rays of the star.
MOHs Hardness: 7
Common Origins: Brazil, Madagascar, India, and Sri Lanka
Mineral Composition: SiO₂ with trace minerals

Affirmation: “I love myself unconditionally."
Crystal Pairings: Typically any pink crystal will pair really well with Rose Quartz to promote healing of the heart, compassion, and love. I have found morganite works extremely well with Rose Quartz when working through a heartache, grief, or forgiving others. If working on healing emotional or childhood trauma, I would highly suggest pairing Rose Quartz with Rhodochrosite
Where To Place In Your Home (Feng Shui): Any Room! Rose Quartz is one of the few crystals that you can place in any room of your home to create a more loving, soothing environment. The only place I wouldn’t suggest placing your rose quartz is outside in your garden, unless you don’t mind it losing its precious deep pink color.
