RoseQuartzCCInitially, I was tripping over the name Rose Quartz in combination with the given lilac-like sample colour (left).

I use many Rose Quartz rocks on the balcony and inside the home.

All these rocks are pinkish, which explains why I found the lilac of the sample colour for Rose Quartz a bit irritating.

However, after some research I discovered that there is a type of Rose Quartz that can have this lilac tone and it is called Lavender Rose Quartz.

The Rose Quartz stone is supposed to support ‘unconditional love’ and have the ability to open the heart’s energy centre.

Whereas Lavender Rose Quartz, with its purple hue, is said to be a little stronger in its protective nature – might just add some to my quartz collection as its colour is very pretty, too.



Next week’s colour for #colour_collective will be announced tomorrow.

For more information see @Clr_Collective and @PennyNevilleLee (#colour_collective creator) and do check out the wonderful illustrations that were posted so far.

The text around the illustration translates to: ‘May all beings in all the worlds be happy’.

So in this sense, wishing all a happy weekend!
