Rose quartz has been used in love rituals and ceremonies for centuries. It belongs to quartz family. The most common sources for rose quartz are in Brazil, Madagascar, India and South Africa. The ancient civilizations of Rome and Assyria were the first to use this crystal as a bead in rose quartz jewelry. It is also used in talismans. Greek and Roman myths were the first to attach the symbol of love to the rose quartz meaning. According to the myth, Cupid, the Roman god of desire, or Eros, the Greek god of love, bestowed the gift of love to humans in the form of a rose quartz. Another rose quartz myth tells of the stone receiving its color from the blood Aphrodite spilt in trying to save her dying lover Adonis. Both of the lovers bled over the stone, and its lasting stain is meant to represent eternal love. Later in Ancient Native American cultures, the rose quartz stone meaning was the same. They believed that this love stone could be used in amulets to resolve anger and disappointments, and bring love into the newly harmonized emotions.
