A lovely piece of Rose Quartz which has been shaped and polished into a decorative heart.
Rose quartz is a type of quartz which exhibits a pale pink to rose red hue and is widely popular in hard-stone carving due to its aesthetically pleasing color. The color is usually considered as due to trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese.

Rose Quartz is the pure stone of love—for oneself, one’s partner, children, family, friends, community, the Earth, the Universe and the Divine. Meditating with Rose Quartz brings an envelope of love around oneself and activates the heart chakra. Healing the heart of its wounds and reawakening its trust are among Rose Quartz’s gifts. Its soothing vibrations are a balm to the emotions, and they calm and cleanse the entire auric field. It engenders the release of tension and stress, the dissolution of anger and resentment, the dispelling of fear and suspicion and the rebirth of hope and faith. Rose Quartz is one of the stones of the Great Mother. It links one’s personal heart to the heart of the Earth and the Heart of the Universe. Its love vibrations can penetrate to the cellular level, reprogramming the cells for joy and longevity rather than despair and death. Rose Quartz can stimulate the crown, third eye and throat chakras, bringing them into harmony and unity with the heart. Even the lower chakras respond favorably to the abundance of love energy which flows from the heart under the influence of Rose Quartz.
