Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love. It is one of the most important stones for heart chakra work, as it opens the heart to all types of love - love of the self, love of family, love of friends and romantic love. The soothing energy of rose quartz fosters empathy, reconciliation and forgiveness of others, lowering stress and tension of the heart. It can clear out anger, jealousy and resentment towards others, allowing the healing of heart issues caused by holding on to these negative emotions.
Agate is one of the oldest of healing stones. As a stone of strength, it was used in ancient civilizations, on the breastplates of armor, to bring warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Agates are very protective stones, making them the perfect stones for amulets and medicine bags. They also bring us courage, emotional strength and self-confidence.
