So, what is rose quartz and how did it get to become such a heart healer?
Basically, rose quartz is a quartz crystal that owes its pink hue to the presence of several minerals, including manganese and titanium. The color of rose quartz ranges from very pale pink to a deep fresh pink. As energy is expressed in many forms - be it color, sound, scent, or solid matter - one can use all these variations in order to help attain the desired goal.
In the case of the rose quartz, the energy of pink carries the universal energy of love, so it helps one attract love, as well as heal from painful love experiences. Some say that it is also the presence of manganese in rose quartz that calms and heals the heart. (Kunzite crystal can be used for the same purpose, but it is not as easy to find and is more expensive).

Where Do I Place the Rose Quartz for Good Feng Shui?What Are the Specific Feng Shui Properties of Rose Quartz?
The Love & Marriage area (Southwest if you follow the classical feng shui Bagua) is the best way to display rose quartz as a love cure. You can also display a bowl with rose quartz in the center (the heart) of your home, as well as have several crystals in your bedroom.
Another excellent use of rose quartz is in your children's bedroom, especially if they have trouble sleeping or tend to get easily agitated. Place a couple of tumbled rose quartz crystals under their pillow, or by their bed stand. Of course, let them know what they are, allow them to freely play with their crystals or even carry some in their pocket!
The beauty of tumbled rocks is that you can carry them with you, so you can have a small rose quartz in your purse, pocket, or even in your car (if you tend to be a nervous driver).
Of course, one of the best uses of rose quartz is in jewelry. You can benefit from the healing energy of rose quartz crystal by wearing it as a pendant (to help release the pain and negative emotions from your heart), as well as in bracelets, rings or earrings.
What Form of Rose Quartz Should I Choose?
You can choose either the tumbled (polished) rose quartz, or go for a carved figurine in rose quartz. The most popular rose quartz carvings are hearts (of course!) as well as angels, flowers, and various animals. Rose quartz towers (also called generators) can be a powerful cure to raise the energy, but they are not easy to find (and more expensive, too).
Rose quartz clusters are very beautiful and very, very rare. On the other hand, there are many lamps made from rose quartz on the market (they look similar to salt rock lamps), as well as rose quartz candle holders.
These can be a beautiful addition to your bedroom and promote a nourishing, warm and loving energy.
Of course, as with all crystals and stones, you have to be sure you cleanse your rose quartz from time to time (and more often if you are using it to relieve emotional pain).
