The next chakra of the seven main is the heart. A unique aspect of this chakra is that it has two different colors that correlate with it, both green and pink. As such we will look at a green stone aventurine, and a pink stone rose quartz. They are both commonly used with the heart chakra, each with interesting healing characteristics.
First there is rose quartz, the stone of unconditional love and infinite peace. It is considered by many to be the most important stone for the heart chakra. It purifies and opens the heart as well as attracts romantic love. Aids in acceptance of necessary change, and enhances positive affirmations. It’s a beneficial stone emotionally because it releases unexpressed emotions and heart ache. Also encourages self-forgiveness and acceptance while invoking self-love and self-trust. Physically rose quartz strengthens the physical heart and circulatory system. Heals kidneys and adrenals and alleviates vertigo.
The other stone we are discussing is aventurine. Most of the time when people bring up this stone they are referring to green aventurine as we are now. It is a very positive stone of prosperity. Has ability to protect against environmental pollution. Also defuses negative situations and turns them around. Psychologically it reinforces leadership qualities and decisiveness. Promotes compassion and empathy while encouraging perseverance. It can stimulate perception, allowing ability to see possibilities and alternatives. Calms anger and irritation, and promotes a feeling of well-being. Physically it assists the thymus gland, connective tissue, and nervous system. Helps prevent heart attacks and migraines.
Both of these heart stones are beneficial and unique in their own right. The heart chakra is the bridge between the upper and lower chakras needing awareness and healing to best aid you on your life’s journey. These stones can help you live a happy, healthy, life full of love and compassion.
