The chakras can be divided into two major halves. The bottom half are the physical chakras of the root, navel, and solar plexus chakras. The top half are the spiritual chakras of the throat, third eye, and crown chakras. In the middle bridging the two is the heart chakra. The heart chakra acts as an intermediary, translating the information, and acting as a conduit of energy from the upper and lower chakras, and vice versa.
I find the heart chakra to be the most influential chakra to work with in crystal healing. While all chakras have a relationships with each other, I find healing the heart chakra creates the most significant shifts for people. This is because love is the highest vibration in the universe and its energy cascades into every facet of our lives. And it is the heart chakra that funnels, produces, and holds this energy.
Following is an assortment of heart healing crystals, each with the own way of working with healing the heart from self-love, to friendship, romantic partnerships, parenting and more. And because all heart chakra crystals are pink, THINK PINK!!!
The following are brief descriptions, but click on the individual crystals for further information about its properties.
Containing the energy of rose quartz, with the added geode property of “looking within.” Thus, it is a crystal to help you look within yourself and help you give yourself the universal love that you have always deserved. A rare crystal only found in Patagonia for those of you who want to love yourself more.
One of the most significant areas where heart healing is needed is with inner child wounds.
Healing these wounds then turns them into our greatest sources of strength and compassion, not only for ourselves but for others. But we first must go through the process of facing our wounds and doing the work to heal them. Rhodochrosite is the ally for this work.
You cannot give from an empty cup: If you are someone that finds it far easier to give love than receive it, than this crystal is important for you. Manganoan (a.k.a. “Mangano”) calcites are crystals that help one heal the issues that come from the imbalance energy that results from not letting love in. Particularly resonant with mothers who are constantly taking care of others at the expense of themselves.
Garnets resonate with material success, while the pink color resonates with the heart. Together this is a stone about “material” success with the heart chakra. Great for those who are seeking to create loving relationships in their lives, whether it be with friends, a child, or a romantic partner in life.
These crystals are a power packed harmonic of energies coming from all the minerals that have joined to energetically work together on these specimens. If you want to discover what truly makes you happy, these crystals will help you develop the self-awareness of what exactly brings you joy... which also helps to really clarify what kind of partner is right for you.
Rhomboid calcites helps “reformat” one’s beliefs so that they are better aligned with truth of how love actually works. I often recommend pink rhomboid calcite for those who need to take a look about their beliefs about love, especially within romantic relationships. I also recommend pink rhomboid calcite for those who need to reconfigure their beliefs about what makes one lovable. Unlike other rhomboid calcites available on the market, these are completely unpolished and 100% natural.
... And as always, the stone that sums up the whole heart healing experience. Rose quartz is one of the three most essential stones for your crystal kit. If you’re unsure as to which heart healing stone to work with, I would choose rose quartz. It’s a stone that has many broad applications for healing the heart chakra. You will never go wrong working with rose quartz.
