Rose Quartz and Aphrodite
Aphrodite is one of the most popular goddesses of love. She can be honored with pieces of Rose Quartz as an offering, or jewelry can be made from this stone to connect with her loving energy and blessings. The site thehealingchest.com gives a nice re-telling of the story of Aphrodite and this precious stone. “Aphrodite became trapped in a thorn bush while rushing to assist Adonis when Ares, the God of War, attacked him. Aphrodite arrived too late to save Adonis. Because of their powerful love, the blood of Aphrodite and Adonis spilled onto the quartz beneath them. From that point on, the quartz in the area had a rose quartz color. Their story of love is deeply tied to rose quartz meaning.”
Rose Quartz is also sacred to several other goddesses. The stone can be used as an offering for Freya, Yemaya, Venus, Isis, and Hathor.
