The heart chakra (or fourth or Anahata chakra) is the center of love, compassion, and forgiveness. Resonating from the chest, the heart acts as the connective point between the higher and lower chakras. Some see it as the most important chakra to keep balanced, as it translates spiritual information and energy received by the higher chakras into the language of the lower chakras (and vice versa). For those working with these energies, it is incredibly important to seek out heart chakra stones that resonate with them personally.
An imbalanced heart chakra can lead to apathy, coldness, and detachment. Fortunately, many stones exist that can provide the heart with love, support, compassion, and gentleness. We recommend exploring the stones below to see what connects with your own heart chakra.
Rose Quartz – The stone of universal love, this powerful quartz connects directly to the heart chakra, clearing it and providing tender loving-kindness.
Rhodonite – This powerful heart healer clears one of old hurts, freeing their emotions. In turn, rhodonite can activate, clear, stimulate, balance, and even ground the heart chakra.
Aventurine – Aventurine is a stone of compassion and empathy that helps protect the heart chakra. It encourages living according to one’s true feelings.
Green Tourmaline – Protective and grounding, this green variety of tourmaline clears and opens the heart to compassion and patience.
Kunzite – This is another stone of universal love. Kunzite activates the heart chakra and connects to throat and third eye energies, allowing one to speak their true feelings about what they see happening around them.
