Rose quartz is associated with the heart chakra. Rose quartz is also one of the most popular stones for healing and emotional growth. Wearing it, meditating with it, and holding it close are believed to open the heart to all kinds of love: romantic love, love of family, love of friends, and love of self. Restoring confidence is one of the most powerful and important uses for rose quartz. The heart cannot move from pain to renewed confidence until it understands and accepts past situations. Rose Quartz solves this by fostering an understanding of feelings like fear and suspicion.
