Rose Quartz is a very soft, pale pink to a red-pink stone of love. Many, over the centuries, have considered it to be the ultimate love stone. It is a gentle, yet powerful stone, regardless. It usually comes in masses, but rarely it is a single crystal. Single visible crystals and clusters are called Pink Quartz. Rose Quartz is also called The Love Stone or the Self-Love Stone.
