Origins and history: The stone of Eros and Aphrodite
Since ancient times, rose quartz stone has been associated with love. It all began in Greek mythology, when this stone was said to have been born from the hands of Aphrodite. During a hunting party, Adonis, her lover, was attacked by a boar. Wanting to save him, Aphrodite intervened, but was stopped by bramble bushes. The goddess of love then found her beloved dead, and from her blood appeared the pink quartz stone.
Another legend tells us that Eros, god of love and creation, brought the rose quartz to Earth so that the men who possess it would advocate love and not hate. Later in Ancient Egypt, the pink quartz stone was exploited for its physical virtues, it allowed to fight against aging. It was thus offered at the time of the deaths, and one found some in the tombs of the noble families.
Today, this mineral is still used, both for its beautiful appearance and its properties, in industry, watchmaking, or jewelry.

How to purify and recharge this stone?
It is important that the owners of rose quartz think about cleaning and purifying it regularly. In order to do this, place it in a glass or earthenware container. The latter should be filled with distilled water, preferably salted. You can also put it under tap water for 10 minutes.
Concerning its recharging, it is necessary that it takes place inside a geode of amethyst. The morning sun or the light of the moon are also effective means, and easier to find 😉
Either way, avoid overexposure to the hot sun at all costs. This will make your rose quartz look dull and tarnished.
