Rose Quartz is the stone of Unconditional Love for
everyone, both to give it and to receive it, for
ourselves and others. This stone reminds me
of the prayer about love.
patient. Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not

self-seeking. It is not easily angered. It keeps no
record of wrong doing. "
I should carry a piece of this with me all the time

There isn't any way to not think
of the people in the program when I think of Rose

loved, and to help them learn to love themselves.
As Amethyst is to the Spirit, so
Rose Quartz is to the Heart.
