Asterism is a name taken from the ancient Greeks and it is the phenomenom of gemstones exhibiting a luminous star like shape when cut into dome or sphere. Natural sunlight is the perfect light to see the six sided star which will appear on the surface of the stone as if it is hovering like a hologram. People view this phenomenom in awe as they see it for the first time.
Rose quartz is often called the “Love Stone.” It’s energetic hallmark is that of unconditional love that opens the heart chakra. This makes rose quartz a stone for every type of love: self-love, family, platonic, romantic, and unconditional.
