I've always been drawn to subtle ways of showing off my femininity. Maybe that's why I love the subtle pink hue in a rose quartz gemstone that hints at a bit of girliness and glam without being over-the-top.
This fall I'm starting a series on gemstones, highlighting the unique properties, energies and facts about each stone. You'll also find some of my favorite pieces incorporating this stone highlighted below.
Rarity: Easily obtained
Source: South Africa, United States, Brazil, India, Madagascar
Properties: love, self-acceptance, romance, positive energy
Healing properties: healing of the heart and circulatory systems when worn directly over the heart. Healing of burns and blisters on the skin. Good for Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and senile dementia.
Rose Quartz wards off negative energy and replaces it with love. It also helps with accepting change.
