Rose Quartz: Folklore, Associations, Healing & Magickal Uses


By Morningbird

Pink crystalline masses found in India, Madagascar, and Brazil.

History and Folklore

Ares wounded Adonis in combat.

As Aphrodite rushed to the side of Adonis, her lover, she caught herself on a thorn.

Blood from the lovers dripped on clear crystal and stained it pink as a lasting symbol of their love.



Excellent for mediators and health workers.

Eases pain and tension. Helps with detoxing. Good for the complexion.


Eases stress, fear, grief, and anger. Placed beneath a crib, it will sooth a fretful or restless child. Good stone for animals especially those from a rescue facility.


Protects against intrusion and others anger or spite. Protects from nightmares. Good for fertility magick. Can be used in peace magick for war torn areas of the earth.
