Star Rose Quartz Sphere
Asterism is a name taken from the ancient Greeks and it is the phenomenom of gemstones exhibiting a luminous star like shape when cut into a rounded domed cabochon or even a sphere.
Rose quartz is a silicon dioxide crystal with a hexagonal crystal system and a hardness of 7. Its name is derived from its color. It is found in Brazil and Madagascar, as well as South Dakota in the USA.
Rose Quartz is the pure stone of love—for oneself, one’s partner, children, family, friends, community, the Earth, the Universe and the Divine. Meditating with Rose Quartz brings an envelope of love around oneself and activates the heart chakra. Healing the heart of its wounds and reawakening its trust are among Rose Quartz’s gifts.
