When sourcing a stone/crystal that symbolizes love, then you are looking for Rose Quartz. Its color ranges from opaque, almost transparent pink to rich, darker tones of pink. When found, it is usually in the formation of large rock boulders. These boulders are hit with force to get them to cleave and break into smaller more manageable pieces. It can also be found in allotments of smaller, hand size rocks.
