Rose Quartz is the pastel pink to bright pink gemstone that is spiritually connected most famously with love, peace and harmony. Our ancestors recognized the beauty and power of this gemstone as far back as at least 7000 BC as Rose Quartz beads have been found in the ruins of the Ancient kingdom of Mesopotamia. Rose Quartz ranges in color from very light, almost clear, pastel pink to a deep, occasionally vivid, pink. The color sometimes ranges from light to dark on the same gemstone and can have attractive white swirls. Rose Quartz is all about love, its nickname is the ‘Love Stone’ after all.
