rose quartz combines the cleansing properties of quartz with some deep heart healing. it’s the perfect stone to keep stored all over your home - tuck it into corners, place a large piece in your bedroom, make a gem essence to add to tinctures and other potions, and carry a special one in your pocket for moments when you need to remember the integral role of your heartbeat.
