What Stone is for the Heart Chakra?
Our bodies have 7 chakras. The first three chakras begin at the base of the spine and end at the belly button. These “chakras of matter” focus on establishing our self-identity in the physical world. The upper chakras start at the throat and end at the top of the head. These “chakras of spirit” are about transcending the self.
The Heart Chakra sits at the very center of this energy pathway, right over the heart. It connects our physical self to our spiritual self through feeling. The physical body relates through feeling. In the Heart Chakra, we feel connected to our souls and to life. Love, intimacy, forgiveness, gratefulness and empathy flow from this chakra. Relationships is the start of transcendence. When our Heart Chakra is balanced, we feel and understand that we are part of an intricate web of relationships in the bigger picture of the universe.
When we find it difficult to forgive, when we create walls to keep people away or are overly dependent on relationships, our Heart Chakra is imbalanced.
Luckily, there are Heart Chakra stones and crystals that can balance this energy center. Both green and pink crystals such as green aventurine and rose quartz help heal the physical body and resonate with the spiritual concepts of truth, love, and compassion. However, there are so many more crystals that are not green nor pink but still resonates strongly with the heart center.
Using the right crystals and stones can bring the wounded, closed, and imbalanced heart chakra back into the Divine state of love so that you can relate to yourself and others. But, different stones possess their own properties, so it’s essential to do your homework.

If your Heart Chakra stone feels depleted, recharge it by surrounding it with high-energy crystals or place it under sunlight or moonlight.
