To properly dispose of a broken rose quartz, dig a small hole in your garden or even a potted plant and bury it there.

Alternatively, you can let it flow away in a stream. However, if the stone is not significantly damaged and still evokes positive emotions when held, you can purify and recharge it to continue benefiting from its vibrations.

When a rose quartz breaks, consider the circumstances leading to its breakage. Was there an energetic event or presence associated with it? Observe your feelings towards the stone.

Does it still resonate positively with you? If so, there’s no harm in using it further.

However, returning it to nature is the best course of action if it no longer feels right.


In summary, when your rose quartz breaks, it’s an opportunity to reflect on your love and emotional life.

Dispose of the broken crystal properly and, if needed, replace it with a new one to continue benefiting from its assistance and energy in guiding your journey.
