Rose quartz is the stone of unconditional love. It is the most important crystal to use for the heart chakra as it teaches us the true essence of love. It opens our hearts up and allows us to heal deeply and love ourselves completely. As this quartz is so powerful at bringing new love to us, it is often paired with amethyst to help calm it down. Rose quartz is so full of love, acceptance, and empathy that it leaves little room for anything like negativity to bloom. Holding this quartz whilst doing affirmations makes them even more effective. Rose quartz teaches us to accept love and helps us move past the grief that comes with having lost it.
