In one Greek legend, Adonis, who was Aphrodite’s lover, was attacked by Ares while he was in the shape of a wild boar. Aphrodite, fearing for her lover, ran to his aid and in the process caught herself upon a briar bush. Her blood mingled with Adonis’ and together it stained the white quartz pink. Later Zeus took pity on them and brought Adonis back for six months every year, thus helping rose quartz become a symbol of love renewed.
@handmadejewelsbyfede inspired me to look up the legends around this stone. I really enjoy reading these. :)
