The color pink has long been associated with the energy of love, so it is no surprise that rose quartz is thought to help one attract love, as well as to heal from painful love experiences. Some say that it is also the presence of manganese in rose quartz that calms and heals the heart.
The heart-healing properties are the most prominent energy associated with rose quartz. No other crystal or stone is considered equal to rose quartz in helping one dissolve painful memories related to love. Remember that rose quartz is not just a healer, however—it also attracts love.
