Legend has it that the Rose Quartz was created from the blood of the Greek goddess Aphrodite and her lover Adonis when she rushed to save Adonis from Ares, god of war, in the form of a boar. Rose quartz, with its gentle pink hue, is considered a ‘Heart Stone’, and is strongly associated with the feelings of Love & Acceptance. It is thought to be beneficial for healing past emotional issues. The ancient Egyptians and Romans considered it beneficial to clear the complexion and prevent ageing.
Most of the Rose Quartxz today is found in Brazil, US, and China.
