Rose quartz gemstone meaning:  The heart chakra is the bridge to the upper three chakras and the lower three chakras so rose quartz’s pink vibration creates the bridge. Rose quartz can add the element of love to your thoughts. Books on this subject agree emotionally rose quartz helps you attract romance and love into your life. It is a good stone for grief, loss of love, loss of friendships, and making a better connection with children.

People often use rose quartz as a sleep aid and for healing diseases associated with the heart. Remember, it is the intention of the mind and should not replace any medical care. The rose quartz is also associated with allowing yourself time for healing emotional wounds, because with the heart chakra being used as the bridge healing can begin to happen.


Rose quartz is attractive in a ring so this is an effective way you can keep the quartz next to you.

Rose quartz is associated with the planet Venus; the number 6; the element water; its Mohs scale is 7; the astrology signs are Taurus and Libra; the 4th chakra, heart chakra  is associated with it.

Rose quartz is associated with the heart chakra:  Rose quartz is associated with the heart center (heart chakra), which is one out of three of the charkas that define the higher needs of the intuitive mind and basic spirituality. The heart center is the higher mental body level allowing access to the aural body.

The astral body plane is a higher mental referred to as the astral / emotional body energy system.  Barbara Brennan is a physicist who has worked with over 5,000 clients involving studying the human energy field. Barbara describes the astral body plane as the Hara line.

Effects of the Rose quartz on emotions:  In books written about the heart chakra, (rose quartz is the gemstone for heart chakra), it brings grace, forgiveness, compassion, universal love, self-love, heart healing, and inner peace.

Rose quartz and your chakras:  Rose quartz contains a healing energy that helps balance the heart chakra. We are speaking of the subtle energy field here which affects your aura.

Crystals give off energy in the form of electricity

  • Crystals are used to convey vibration through piezoelectric current.
  • Science is finding many applications, such as voice recognition in computers, watches, and measuring distance.
  • The crystals are being use to develop quantum memories for computers.
  • With pressure the crystals give off this current.
  • We know the gemstones are giving off an energy current.

Uses of a piezoelectric current produced by crystals:  The piezoelectric current is used in quartz watches since the current is produced regularly so it helps keep good time. Voice recognition software on computers uses the piezoelectric current for sound you can understand by sending electrical signals from the microphone to the computer to interpret using your sound energy.  Squeezing crystals such as quartz gives off an electric signal. If you are really interested in piezoelectricity I found a great website titled, Explain that Stuff.

Crystals for Quantum Memory:  Quartz crystals produce a piezoelectric current, which is measurable and used in science. Crystals often make research news such as in this recent article, May 14, 2014, at PHYS.ORG, titled, Rare Earth Ions in a Crystal become Candidate for a Quantum Memory. The article is referring to a promising material lining itself up for possible quantum memory. Read more about this by clicking news. Through this article you can see that studies are done on the electric current produced by crystals.

Varieties of quartz:  Quartz is crystallized silicon dioxide. The varieties that crystallize are known as amethyst, citrine, smoky quartz, rose quartz, and rock crystal quartz. It depends on the color. Rose quartz is the pink form of silicon dioxide with microscopic mineral inclusions that make translucent to cloudy. Pink quartz is sensitive to light but rose quartz is not.

Mining of rose quartz:  Rose quartz is mined commercially in Brazil, Namibia, South Africa, Madagascar, and in America in South Dakota. Star Rose Quartz is mined in Madagascar and South Dakota.

Wearing rose quartz as jewelry:  When rose quartz is worn as jewelry it can remind us of our intention and also help with our energetic field. So whether you are a massage therapist looking for new tools, a seeker looking to have more of a peaceful connection, or someone wanting to give a gift, rose quartz contains the vibrations of peace. Some people wear rose quartz rings to carry that connection.

Remember when working with gemstones they are simply tools to remind you of your goals or intentions.

How to clear and charge a crystal, in this case a rose crystal

Scientific studies have shown pressure activates the piezoelectric current in crystals. This electric current is due to stress. Start with intention and then press firmly on each of the crystal’s facets. While thinking of your intention, in this case to clear the crystal, visualize the crystal clearing.

Other ways mentioned in books to clear the crystal is to use herbs, bathing the crystal in the sun, running tap water over it, or placing them in the sunlight or moonlight. Some use the ocean or salt water. Be sure and rinse the salt water off so you do not cause the crystal to become dull.

To sum up rose quartz meaning and use:  Rose quartz is especially healing for the heart chakra and science shows it produces a piezoelectric electric current allowing it to affect your magnetic field.  I think you will agree different colors, smells, and climates have an affect upon us, as does nature through all she provides. Crystals are embedded in the earth, a lot of books say rose quartz carries a healing energy for our chakras. Science can verify that rose quartz produces a piezoelectric current. A necklace or pendant is an easy way to keep the quartz next to you and balance your energies.

This article has covered uses of the rose crystal, the science behind it, its relation to your chakras, wearing rose quartz as jewelry, how to clean and charge a rose quartz.

Enjoy use of the rose crystal with more understanding of what a wonderful gemstone it is.
