Rose Quartz Freeform
High quality rose quartz freeform 💕 It has star rays but because of the way it’s cut there’s not an actual star - just wispy white rays that you can see in direct light, it gives a beautiful ethereal effect. ✨ It’s large, but the base cut is quite small so it’s a bit wobbly. I recommend putting her on a shelf that won’t get knocked into or possibly putting her into a stand!
Lore & Magick:
(The following is written by Patricia Jean Martin)
Throughout history, Rose Quartz has been a symbol for love and beauty. Today it is known as the "Stone of Gentle Love" or the "Stone of Unconditional Love".
Although not much is known historically about Rose Quartz, beads were found in the area once known as Mesopotamia (today's Iraq) that date back to 7000 BC. Rose Quartz jewelry was known to be crafted by the Assyrians during the time span of 800-600 BC, and it is believed that the Assyrians along with the Romans were first to use this stone. The Romans used it for making seals as a sign of ownership. They also considered it a strong healing stone. Egyptians believed the pink stone prevented aging.
Rose Quartz has traditionally been given to newborn babies to help in their transition from the spirit world to the physical realm, gently integrating the two and helping with adjustment. This stone is also said to help mend broken hearts or aid in easing emotional trauma.
Rose Quartz is a veritable love stone. It is a soft and gentle stone, and it is charming in more ways than one. Not only is it simply an attractive and alluring stone, but it also possesses the power to actually charm its bearer, and, in turn, may charm those he or she chooses to relate to. It opens our hearts to acknowledge and more easily identify all the beauty that surrounds us, not only within all things and within all others, but within ourselves. It also encourages forgiveness through its soothing, healing properties.
By inspiring a mood of love, I find Rose Quartz also encourages me to share this mood...be it through my artwork as it flows through my hands and off the tip of my pen or paintbrush, or through my relationships in both love and friendship. A stone I relate to the passions of Psyche and Eros, the lasting adoration of Selene and Endymion, the beauty of Aphrodite, and the grace and unconditional love of Hestia.
