How Do Tell If Your Rose Quartz Is Real?

The color will not be consistent all around, it should vary. Rose Quartz is normally eye-clean. This means it is free of inclusions, where no materials or particles are visible with the naked eye.
An authentic Rose Quartz is usually mostly clear in appearance where bubbles and discolorations are unlikely. Look for imperfections, natural stones have imperfections even if they are cut.
The Mohs Hardness for Rose Quartz is 7.0 making it a durable stone. Also, this makes it so you use it for Gem Water.
How To Cleanse Your Rose Quartz:
Rose Quartz can be cleansed in a variety of ways. Smudging with sage, lavender or Palo Santo is a great way to cleanse your Rose Quartz.
Using a tuning fork will also do the trick. A tap or two will knock off any yucky energy.
Also, since Rose Quartz has Mohs Hardness of 7.0, you can cleanse this stone with saltwater as well. Soak your crystal in a bowl of water with sea salt for at least 20 to 30 minutes. You can leave it in the saltwater for as long as you feel comfortable, some people leave it for as many as 3 days. Trust your intuition on the time you spend soaking.
Finally, leaving your Rose Quartz under a Full Moon on your windowsill will cleanse it fully and thoroughly. No matter what way you chose to cleanse your Rose Quartz just be sure to set an intention that your crystal is cleansed with all that does not belong to you.

You can also use it to awaken self-love, self-acceptance, and even improve romantic relationships because Rose Quartz helps in understanding and loving your partner better – in a healthier way. It’s also an excellent crystal to help you enhance your connection with the Heart Chakra, balance it and enhance its energy.
