Greek and Roman myths were the first to attach the symbol of love to the Rose Quartz. According to the myth, Cupid, the God of Desire and Love, bestowed the gift of love to humans in the form of a Rose Quartz. Another myth tells that the stone received its color from the blood of Aphrodite spilt in trying to save her dying lover Adonis. Both of the lovers bled over the stone, and its lasting stain meant to represent eternal love.
Rose Quartz' affirmation is: I open my heart to give and receive love.
