Rose Quartz is well-known for its innate ability to increase love. According to ancient Greek mythology, Eros, God of Love, (known to the Romans as Cupid), gave Love to humans in the form of Rose Quartz. As symbol of love, this stone of the heart is often used in love rituals and ceremonies to increase the capacity for compassion and peace and unconditional love.
Nowadays, Rose Quartz is most predominately used to increase self-love and lower self-doubt. Directly linked to the Heart Chakra, Rose Quartz opens the heart and soothes emotions.
