Here's a sinister caper: some bandit heisted Moon Juice's beloved rose quartz.Moon Juice, as you may remember, is a pricy, but tasty juicery, smoothie and sex dust shop in Silver Lake. It's owned by Goop-approved health guru Amanda Chantal Bacon, who explained to Elle her daily diet of things most people have never heard of, like a "copper cup of silver needle tea and calendula tea" after her 23-minute meditative breath set, and "three quinton shots for mineralization and two lipospheric vitamin B-complex packets for energy."

But this is no time to poke fun. There is a mystery afoot, as someone has made off with the juice shop's rather large rose quartz.

This particular crystal, according to Crystal Vaults, is a "a stone of the heart, a Crystal of Unconditional Love. It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort. It speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, dissolving emotional wounds, fears and resentments, and circulates a Divine loving energy throughout the entire aura."

But guess what, thief? All that love and fulfillment goes out the window if you steal one of these babies. That will only net you some bad karma, if you believe in that sort of thing, and maybe $20 on eBay. The asking price for a chunk of rose quartz seems pretty all over the place, ranging from a couple of bucks to several hundred dollars. One LAist staffer called Moon Juice to ask if the crystal was valuable and was told, "Yeah, I think so."

While it's clear Moon Juice would like their crystal back, others believe that when a crystal goes missing, it's for a reason.

According to a post on the blog Crystals and Gem Stones, a crystal may disappear or break for the following reasons: "divine intervention, giving us messages from angels or spirit guides, the crystal didn't resonate with our energy/vibration, the crystal was called to benefit someone else, it served its purpose for us and had to move on."
