What are good stones for heart palpitations? And nervous system calming? I have had heart palpitations for over a year now. It comes from time to time. I checked with a cardiologist and he did all necessary ultrasonic scans, etc. and told me that my heart physically is perfect but it's related to heart nerves. He said under stress or panic attacks it gets false signals from the brain and that is what causes the heartbeat disorder.
So I'm likely interested to get stones for the heart and overall nervous system — both at the same time. I know that a Ruby is good for the heart, but I also would like to know other good options as well.

It sounds like the heart palpitations are a response/symptom to the stress, nerves and panic, yes?
Let's focus in on the primary cause of the heart palpitations, which would be the stress and nerves. Once this cause is under control, I think you will find that the symptoms (heart palpitations) will effectively decrease.
There are many crystals that can help to decrease stress and relieve tension.
For instance, Chrysocolla is soothing and calming in times of stress, and brings about gentle release. It gently draws off negative energies of all kinds, and can help to calm the emotions.
Blue Calcite calms and soothes frayed nerves and lessens anxieties. It facilitates physical healing by clearing negative emotions and encouraging rest and relaxation.
Lepidolite in my opinion, is one of the best pieces to use in order to reduce stress, release tension, and calm panic and anxiety.
Chlorite in Quartz is a wonderful combination that helps to ease the feelings of panic, fear and recurring anxiety. The Green Chlorite is also a wonderful heart stone, which will help to heal and soothe the rhythms of the heart.
To keep you in a space of peace and tranquility, try carrying Amethyst, Aragonite, Emerald, Rose Quartz, or Blue Lace Agate.
To strengthen the heart, try working with Amber, Amazonite, Red Garnet, or Green Tourmaline.
Choose the crystals that you feel will work best for you and make sure to carry them with you daily in your pocket, etc. When you get home, you may want to pick one or two and sit quietly. A good exercise when feeling that panic (and to practice even when you don't) is to sit in silence. Take a deep breath in (count to 4), hold that breath (count to 4) and slowly release the breath (count to 4). This breathing also releases all of that pent up tension and stress.
Does it work? You bet! I have baffled many a nurse taking my blood pressure by doing this simple breathing technique. It significantly lowers my blood pressure, so much so that they always ask if I have low blood pressure :)
Anytime you feel the stress, panic or heart palpitations, do the breathing. It will help get things to a place of balance for you.
