Rose Quartz is a love stone. It aids in patience, gentleness and compassion. It's often associated with reconciliation. This comes from the Greek story of Aphrodite and Adonis. Adonis was being attacked by Ares and was saved by Aphrodite who cut her hand on a thorn bush in the process. Their blood stained some white quartz making it pink in color.

Cleansing: Rose quartz can be water cleansed but should be stored out of direct sunlight to preserve it's color. I'm a huge fan of sun charging, but if you use this method make sure you remove your crystal from the sun when it's finished.
