In my Rose Quartz article comments, melissa armstrong asked:
I’ve heard that I need to re-charge my rose quartz in the moonlight. Is that correct? I have a heart shaped stone. It’s not set in jewellery. How should I use the stone? Should I just hold it every now and then? For how long?
My Answer: In general, all stones need to be charged periodically. There are several methods, though. I have an article on that at http://bit.ly/charge-crystals with a great deal more detail. To get the energy of the stone, you can carry it in your pocket or purse, hold it in your hand whenever you feel a need for it, and keep it in your environment. The closer it is to you, and the more often, the more of the rose quartz energy you get.
