Origins and legends of rose quartz
The name crystal comes from the Greek krystallos (to designate the stone quartz), which means ice. This name comes from the fact that it looks like it and can stay cold in the heat longer than glass. Rose quartz is obviously part of this very large family of quartz. What differentiates it from its many cousins is the presence in the stone of traces of specific trace elements (mineral salt necessary for the life of an organism) which gives it its beautiful pink color. Indeed, the different members of the family personalize each other by the presence of traces of lithium, aluminum, iron, boron, calcium, magnesium, calcium, titanium and / or rubidium. That's enough to create many color combinations !
Greek mythology would attribute the genesis of the stone to the unfortunate loves of Aphrodite and Adonis. Rose quartz would be the fruit of the mixed and crystallized blood of the goddess and the mortal. In addition, if we believe the Mayan legend, one of the famous 13 crystal skulls could be designed of rose quartz. Together, they would reveal great secrets of the universe... For now, they are distributed in different museums around the world... What would happen if they were reunited? Will unicorns be back on Earth?

Quartz in everyday life
In lithotherapy (it is a therapeutic method that consists of healing oneself by means of crystals), it is considered the stone of the heart, love and peace. Thus, through its virtues, it spreads its sweetness in us and in our interactions with others.
