Whether you believe in them or not, crystals are pretty interesting. Regardless if you like them because they're pretty, if you use them to heal, or you think they're just dumb rocks, here's a little bit of insight on the stone itself and why people treasure it.
Personally, rose quartz is one of my favorite crystals, even if it's a more "basic" one, but why would we even judge, right?
Rose quartz is a pink stone that can vary anywhere from being pale and cloudy to bright pink, but it is easily recognizable. It can be shaped however, but is commonly seen as a jagged stone in its natural form. Usually found at your local "witch" or healing shop, rose quartz is starting to be implemented into bigger chains as well.
This stone represents universal love and healing and is commonly used for the heart. While it can aid physical impairments, people often use it for mental reasons as well.
The healing properties of this crystal include mainly self love, but can also apply to ones looking for love as well. Many struggle with loving themselves and feeling confident, but this crystal is known to help encourage better feelings toward yourself. It provides feelings of peace and helps reduce negativity toward oneself and keeps negativity away from others.
I used to wear it in a necklace until I lost it. Some people believe when you lose crystals, its time is done for you until you find it again. I then eventually found a rose quartz ring I used to wear and now I wear that one again. Self love is something I find really important, so incorporating it in my daily life is something I like to do to keep a clear mind.
So, if you just like the way it looks or you want to work on some self-love, pick up some rose quartz and just vibe.
