Rose Quartz can be found in a variety of colors, depending on the trace elements it contains. The most common color is pink. Although crystals are generally very hardy material, exposing them to certain things such as sunlight can cause damage. Is this the case for rose quartz?
Rose quartz can be exposed to direct sunlight but should be limited. Although softer sun rays at dawn and dusk will help energize rose quartz, direct sunlight can lead to discoloration and thus a low energy efficiency within the crystal. So, try to store it outside of direct sunlight.
Of course, there is a lot more to this topic than that, so feel free to read the rest of this article for more information.
What is rose quartz and how does it work?
Rose quartz is a deeply comforting and peaceful stone. It can help ground you during times of stress, especially when it coincides with either an important life event or transition.
It can be used to promote love in all its forms, which can result in more peaceful relationships between people. Likewise, it can also promote self-love and acceptance by helping create less anxiety about your body image.
All that said the physical benefits are just as important! The calming energy can moisturize skin while moisturizing helps balance out any inflammation or redness on the surface of your skin – this is because of its high silica content which is good for the body
Is it safe to leave my rose quartz in the sun for a long time?
Exposing your rose quartz to the sun can be safe as long as the person owning it knows that sunlight can lead to fading. However, having it in the sun can encourage candle coloration over time, but can also help fade blemishes if anything enters into contact with them.
This means that you should try to store your crystals out of direct sunlight as much as possible and only expose them to the more beneficial morning or evening sun rays. If you can avoid having your rose quartz in direct sunlight for long periods of time, that would be ideal to help protect the stone and extend its lifespan.
How can I tell if my crystal has been damaged by sunlight or not?
The first sign of damage can be seen on the surface of the crystal, which can either have a chalky white or dusty feel to it. The color can also change over time, becoming more pink or brownish. Damaged rose quartz can also shatter very easily if it’s dropped.
Some signs that your rose quartz might not be as healthy are cloudy patches on its surface, discoloration, uneven coloring, and little cracks along the edges. Crystals are really living things that will be affected by changes in their environment.
For example, an amethyst can’t stay outside in snowy weather because prolonged exposure will cause cloudiness or cracking on the convex side of the stone – not only will your crystal look terrible but there won’t be any healing power left for you either! No one can know for certain exactly how long rose quartz can be in the sun, but if you can see any of the signs mentioned above then it’s best to keep your crystal out of direct sunlight.

My crystal was left in the sun and now its cloudy, what do I do?
It can be difficult to prevent crystals from getting cloudy if they are exposed to direct sunlight. This can happen whether a crystal is on display on a windowsill, or on the dashboard of your car. A trick for preventing this can be placing a fabric or other soft material between the sun and the crystal.
When this happens, you can attempt to cleanse the rose quartz by washing it in salt water for 30 minutes (read my article here for more information) or by exposing it to moonlight. You are trying to rebalance the energy within the crystal when doing this.
When in doubt, it may be time to source a new crystal to ensure that you keep on benefiting from its unique energy in your life.
Is it safe to wear rose quartz jewlery in the sun?
Rose quartz, like many other types of crystals which can benefit from the sun’s rays, can also be fashioned into jewelry. Of course, this means that at some point you will be wearing it on a bright day.
This shouldn’t be an issue if you are only in the sun for less than an hour. However, if you plan to sunbathe on a beach or poolside, consider removing these pieces of jewelry and placing them in the shade. Not only will direct sunlight eventually affect the color of your rose quartz, but it may also lower its healing effectiveness.
In these cases, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
