Rose Quartz is just one of numerous different forms of Quartz. Others include, amethyst, citrine, jasper and chalcedony. The pink colour of Rose Quartz is due to the presence of the minerals titanium, iron or manganese. It was discovered in the 1880’s that quartz has what are known as, ‘piezoelectric properties’. Quartz crystals still play an important role in our everyday life. Garnets are semi-precious stones, but they are not a single type of mineral. Instead they are from a group of several closely related silicate minerals. The actual name ‘Garnet’ derives from ‘gernet‘. This was the word used in medieval times to describe the dark red colour. These are Indian Garnets, a country that produces stones with the most intense colours.
Metaphysically, these are two semi-precious stones associated with love & devotion. Rose Quartz is the most important stone for the heart chakra. Rose Quartz is the ‘love stone’ or ‘the stone of universal love’. These are stones that can relieve stress and anger, and replace them with love and hope. It is also a stone with exceptional feminine energy, a stone of tenderness, compassion and healing.
Garnets, are the fiery, stone of passion. As well as passion, they are a stone that can inspire love and devotion. Garnets are powerfully energising and regenerating stones. Garnets also have powerful protective qualities, especially for those travelling away from home.
