Self Love and Acceptance - Pink quartz (rose quartz) allows you to be in touch with your basic self. It will allow you to get to know your true self and to love that true self in all its beauty. It can also allow you to communicate internally with your spirit guides, which means you may or may not be aware of them but they are teaching you all the same. Rose Quartz is a good stone for someone who has trouble loving themselves or accepting love from another because they do not believe that they are worthy of being loved.

Great Complexion - I been wearing my rose quartz mala beads for almost a week. It says it's also good for your complexion. I noticed the top of my feet and hands clearing and smoothing out. I'm 26 yrs old. They say to infuse the water with rose quartz and wash your face. ~Katt

Truly Comforting and a Sense of Peace - I am grieving a loss of love right now and the minute I put the necklace on with the rose quartz close to my heart I felt peace. I felt extremely calm... so calm that I felt sleepy. My mom was impressed and she isn't a believer of this sort of thing. I hope it continues to work for me. I have a long road ahead of me and I need to be at peace with myself to carry on. Not sure whether it makes me feel confident yet but I don't have the urge to cry. It's liberating. ~Monica

Soothing, Cooling Rose Quartz - A few yrs ago I fell very ill w/ flu. A week or two earlier I'd bought my first rose quartz crystal tumbled stones. All I'd read of their purpose was matters of the heart. I'd felt earlier how the r.

q. stones made me feel, happier & lighter. I'd left the stones on a dresser next to my bed. The flu overtook me on a sub-zero night. I went from chills to weakness, and to bed. Within a half hour, I began to feel warm, then hot. Even the backs of my hands were perspiring. I'd taken fever reducer (for chills) an hour prev, no help. The fever shot up quickly to 103. I saw the stones in reach-- instinctively laid them on my pounding, burning forehead. They felt so cool. Immediately I began to cool down. The rose quartz seemed to literally absorb the fever from my forehead and cheeks. The fever began dropping immediately. Afterward, I was diagnosed w/ a detached retina from fever. I was stunned to read rose quartz also cures fevers. It's true--great for babies! ~MoonLitNite

Giveaway Crystal - I personally find rose quartz to be a healing stone for emotional issues.

I use it as a 'giveaway' crystal when someone comes to me for help. This crystal may have a different appeal for others. It's especially good for healing the 'heart' of sadness and grief. ~UpNorth

Mood Brightener - I have several stones just lying around, one being rose quartz. After an incredibly bad week with several losses, I was in a deep depression and couldn't shake it. I happened to glance at the stones and picked up the rose quartz. I carried it in my pocket all day and held onto it whenever possible. As the day wore on, my mood brightened significantly. I don't know why I was attracted to that particular stone, but I will never be without it again! ~No body's Girl

Heart-to-Heart Distant Healer - My favorite gemstone to use for anything is rose quartz. I recommend to everyone to taking a rose quartz bath. Once you do, you will from now on. The energy that a rose quartz carries leads to our hearts which warms the entire being! I also use this stone for heart to heart distant healing. It comforts as well as gives as well as brings in love. I respect the world of stones, this one I make Queen of Gemstones. ~Olivia
