Rose quartz, also known as pink quartz, is one of the most popular varieties of the quartz family. The ancient Romans and Egyptians used rose quartz as a beautification aid believing it would prevent winkles and encourage a beautiful complexion. Because of its self-enhancement quality, a piece of rose quartz can be especially good if you have a weight problem since it should greatly foster your personal self-acceptance.
The most delicately colored of the quartz family rose quartz receives its name from the beautiful rose and pink colors it exhibits. No other stone at any price can rival the soft silky shades and tones of this rose.
Rose quartz has the ability to give and receive love, the power of relaxation, inner peace and tranquility.
