There is one very beautiful legend about rose quartz. When Adonis was attacked by Ares, the god of war, reincarnated as a boar, Aphrodite, in love with the handsome man, tried to help him. But, hurrying to help, the goddess got tangled in a thorny bush and when she finally got there, it was already too late, Adonis died. The blood from the fangs and scratches from the thorns mixed and dyed the quartz deposits in this place pink.
However, the legend ends happily. Zeus took pity on Aphrodite and Adonis and every year he resurrected the beautiful young man to life for six months.
