Aesthetically pleasing and the perfect compliment to Instagram flat lays, Rose Quartz has been manifesting itself increasingly into our daily experiences at Age of Lapin and we thought it was time to pay more attention.
Naturally attractive with a light pink hue, Rose Quartz has long been deemed the stone of the hopeless romantic and has been used in love ceremonies and rituals for centuries. While it was Greek and Roman myth that first deemed Rose Quartz the stone of love, early Egyptians were the first to use it in beauty rituals, with the belief that it could prevent signs of aging.
Whether in its raw form or polished state, the soft pink of this stone will, without a doubt, magnetically draw those who are most in need. And while those who are looking for relationship love may search out Rose Quartz to assist in this area, we have found it to be a stone that works powerfully when we are in need of boosting our own love of self. You may find yourself drawn to Rose Quartz if you are feeling a need to reassert your personal determination in life or if you are feeling out of alignment and in search of something to soothe your soul.
Our relationship with ourselves is the ones we must pay strongest attention to in order to ensure other areas of our lives flow with positivity. If we are lacking in self-love, then all other areas of our lives are likely to be affected; relationships, work, and even our health.
