The voice of Rose Quartz says, “You are loved. Things will be all right.” It carries a whisper of the sacred feminine. It can feel like a hug, a celebratory dance or the hand of mother holding up her child until she can walk on her own.
In one Greek legend, Adonis, who was Aphrodite’s lover, was attacked by Ares while he was in the shape of a wild boar. Aphrodite, fearing for her lover, ran to his aid and in the process caught herself upon a briar bush. Her blood mingled with Adonis’ and together it stained the white quartz pink. Later Zeus took pity on them and brought Adonis back for six months every year, thus helping rose quartz become a symbol of love renewed.
Star rose quartz is only found in a few locations in the world. Some rose quartz contains microscopic rutile crystals which are oriented at right angles to the c-axis of the rose quartz in three directions, each 120 degrees apart. When viewed at a specific angle with a source of light a star-effect is visible. This is known as asterism. What is interesting is that this star formation only appears when the stone is polished in a spherical shape The stars come out most dramatically in the natural light of the sun – sometimes with an almost 3D effect that seems to rise up out of the crystal.
