Rose Quartz has an ancient story alleging Ares wounded Adonis in battle. As Aphrodite, who was the lover of Adonis, rushed to his side she stabbed herself on a thorn. It is claimed that blood from the lovers dripped on a clear crystal staining it pink. The pink hue of the stone is said to be a lasting symbol of their love; because of this, rose quartz has been called the Heart Stone.
Setting the story aside, rose quartz beads have been dated as far back as 7000 BC in Mesopotamia (today’s Iraq) as well as to the Assyrians around 800-600 BC.
Rose quartz can be found at many locations all over the world. It is commercially mined in Madagascar, South-Africa, Namibia, United States (South Dakota), and Brazil (Bahia and Minas Gerais).
