It is very confusing when you are first learning about the healing energies of rocks. There are so many stones with so many energies, where do you start?
We here at the store are very fortunate in that we can pick up one of our 1000s of stones and feel the energy. We also have books and talk to other people about their experiences with crystals too.We discussed which stones are great for people just learning about stones, or stones that everyone should have, and these are the ones we agreed that everyone should have in their home.
Rose Quartz is a lovely pink from of quartz. It is such a sweet stone that everyone should have at least one, or if you are like me, a whole desk full! Rose quartz helps you build self esteem and self confidence. It helps you to love yourself and others. It promotes joy and friendship. It helps soothe your heart if you are sad or lonely.
