There are many stories throughout Greek mythology that speak of the origin of this powerful stone. One legend tells the story of Adonis the lover of Aphrodite who was killed by a wild boar after venturing into the domain of Artemis. Fearing for her lover, Aphrodite ran to be at his side. Getting caught on a briar bush, the blood of Aphrodite and Adonis joined together staining the white Quartz surrounding them to a rose pink color. Adonis then pleaded to Zeus to save his life. Zeus took pity on the lovers and decided to bring Adonis back for six months every year to be reunited with Aphrodite, thus bestowing the symbol of love renewed to Rose Quartz. Other lore says that Cupid and Eros, both being gods of love, gifted Rose Quartz to humans with the belief that it would spark love and desire within.
