How do I charge rose quartz?

Discharging and charging rose quartz gemstones correctly.

Favorite stone in delicate rose

Rose quartz is one of the most popular gemstones. The beautiful, mostly transparent crystal comes in a color spectrum from delicate rose to strong pink and, like rock crystal, is a quartz, a common mineral that can be found all over the world. Rose quartz is a relatively hard crystal and is insensitive to water. To unload it, you can simply rinse it under running water for a few seconds.

Receptive to energies.

After the rose quartz has been discharged, it can absorb and store new energies particularly well. To charge the crystal, place it in sunlight for an hour or in the moonlight overnight. The full moon is particularly suitable for charging rose quartz. The stones can simply be placed on the windowsill or near a window.

Can rose quartz lose its color?

The rose quartz is not completely insensitive to the influences of heat and UV radiation. Although the pink color of the stone will not suddenly fade, placing it in direct sunlight may affect its intensity after many years. If you want to preserve the color of your rose quartz decades later, choose a spot out of direct sunlight. However, bright locations without direct sunlight are not a problem.

In order to charge the rose quartz, you are doing everything right with moonlight. A romantic full moon also supports the power of the gemstone, which is known as the stone of love.

Little moonlight ritual

On a clear, starry night, take a moment to study the night sky. How many stars can you discover and where will the moon take its course this evening? Is the moon waxing or waning? We rarely deal with the astronomy that surrounds us in everyday life, but the vastness of space has a calming and strengthening effect on many of us. Take your rose quartz in both hands and find a nice place for it in the light: with a bit of luck, the moonlight will shine through your window, or the stone will find its place on the balcony or terrace. You can also add other gems to charge multiple gems at the same time. We like to put the stones on a small tray to give everyone enough space in the light.

Our tip: stop and think about what the moon (or the sun) does to you emotionally when you look at it. This is exactly the energy that your rose quartz should store. He is particularly receptive to energies of love, emotion and inward attention.
