This stone envelopes the user in a layer of compassionate love. This is a great help in situations where love is not the primary emotion that arises. Think about wearing or carrying Rose Quartz to mediations, arbitrations and other legal meetings.
Carry it with you when love will benefit the conversation as when dealing with people with opposing views or when you are acting as a mediator for loved ones. This is also a great stone for parents to have near in times when children may have views differing from their own and to bring to family or other large gatherings. The more compassion you can bring to a crowd, the better.
This is a great stone for teachers and those who work with groups. While your classroom may run well, there are a variety of personalities and differing opinions. Carrying a Rose Quartz can give you a little help when dealing with those more challenging personalities.
And, of course, bring Rose Quartz to an already loving situation such as marriages & long term relationships, parent-child relationships, and gatherings with your favorite people. We don't have to reserve crystals for situations that NEED them, we can add them to enhance an already favorable situation.

The Rose Quartz video here shows an A Grade Specimen, Natural (un-tumbled, un-polished). This stone has a nice deep pink color, with some translucency. A more translucent appearance is preferred.
Extra grade would be a similar pink or darker (lilac) and very translucent.
A nice characteristic to this piece is that it has a flat bottom and can stand upright.
Rose Quartz is in the quartz family of stones. It is one of many since quartz is the most abundant crystal on Earth. Rose Quartz is a Silicon Dioxide Crystal with a hardness of 7. It has a hexagonal (trigonal) crystal structure. It is hard, but translucent, best not to leave it in the sun or it will lose its color. Short times in the sun are okay, but it is best to charge this one in the moonlight or in the shade on a sunny day.
The exemplary stone of love- all types of love - love for self, romantic love, love for family and friends, love for children, love for neighbors & community, for Gaia -Mother Earth-, the Universe in its entirety and love of Source. Bring Rose Quartz close to you in meditation and it will enliven the Heart Chakra to exude your innate love, the truest love in which you become one with a single connected flow of energy from Source.
The sweet, gentleness of this stone's vibration acts as serum for the Heart and Aura, releasing stagnancy, dissolving anger, resentment, distrust and dispelling fear and suspicion. From this new space faith, hope and trust are disentangled and a person will begin to experience these newly.
PAIRS WELL WITH
Rose Quartz pairs well with other pink stones such as Pink Tourmaline, Pink Calcite, Rhodonite, Rhodochrisite, and Morganite. It also plays well with green stones, the color of the Heart Chakra: Emerald, Tsavorite Garnet, and Moldavite. Other friendlies include Phenacite, Natrolite and Scolecite.
To enhance any stone pair it with Clear Quartz - it acts as an amplifier.
