Crystals for Love

By Crystal Cosmopolitan

“Love can heal.
Love can renew.
Love can make us safe.
Love can inspire us with its power.
Love can bring us closer to [God*].”

(*May substitute Spirit, Goddess, Universal Consciousness, etc.)

The Path to Love, Deepak Chopra

There are many legends about the origin of St. Valentine’s Day, celebrated on February 14th, by exchanging gifts and symbols of love.  First associated with romantic love in England in the Middle Ages, it has since become one of the most popular holidays throughout the world.  Whether we are looking forward to the romance of it, or dislike it because of its commercialization, we could envision it as a day to remind ourselves about, and reconnect to, all the people we love and who love us.  Deepak Chopra, a world-renowned author and expert on mind/body healing, suggests that the keys to successful relationships are the three A’s: attention, appreciation, and affection.  To help you open your heart, pay attention to, appreciate, and be affectionate with those that you care about, try using some of the following crystals:

Ruby

Known as one of the most powerful cleansers and energizers of both the Root and the Heart chakra, Ruby is known for increasing vitality and passion.  It improves self-confidence, brings courage, stimulates sexual energy and desire and opens us up for new experiences.

For those for whom the energy of Ruby alone may be too strong, Ruby in Zoisite, a.k.a. Anyolite, might be a better choice.  It balances the heart, releases long-held pain, and transmutes it into a sense of well-being.  By balancing and healing the heart, it is also helping us to intuitively harmonize our relationships with others.

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is one of the most universally recognized LOVE stones throughout the world.  Since it is most commonly described as a crystal that brings new love into our lives, in addition to wearing it, Feng Shui experts recommend placing it into the “relationship” corner of the house and also next to your bed.  However, crystal healers emphasize this stone’s ability to release emotional pain, increase self-love and build healthy self-esteem. 

Rhodochrosite

Rhodochrosite supports spontaneous expressions of feelings and affections. It is a great stone for those who are hesitant in revealing their true feelings because of past experiences.  This stone helps heal the wounds of the past and supports one’s inner child through empathy and compassion.  Some crystal writers refer to it as a stone that helps one attract their soulmate.

Garnet

Red Garnet stimulates the Root, the Sacral, and the Heart chakras, bringing stability, increased sexual energy and devotion into relationships.  It assists in releasing energetic blocks and opens us to receive love and affection.  It is generally known as a stone of fidelity and one that solidifies a committed relationship.

Aventurine

The key words for the healing properties of Green Aventurine are that it is comforting, healing, and harmonizing. While green is one of the colors that assist the Heart chakra (in addition to pink and some varieties of red), green Aventurine specifically brings a renewed joy, lightness, and optimism.  It supports emotional stability and moving forward in life.

Pink Calcite

This crystal’s gentle vibration attracts unconditional love and forgiveness.  It slowly releases all fears that keep the heart trapped in the past and is soothing to the emotional body, while at the same time brings calming and loving energy to one’s energetic field. This crystal is often recommended for strengthening the bond between parent and child.

Morganite

Another stone known as the “love attractor”, Morganite encourages us to enjoy life. Peace, joy, and emotional strength--these are the words that many who have experienced working with this crystal use to describe its effects. Crystal writers often describe it as presenting one with a sense of emotional abundance.

Carnelian

While Carnelian is not typically recommended as a “heart” stone, it does wonders in terms of an optimistic outlook, creative energy, and self-confidence.  Even just looking at its vibrant color is energizing!  By activating the first three chakras of the body, Carnelian restores vitality and creativity, which are the keys for a passionate life.

Finally, for those who enjoy the HEART symbolism, and the Valentine’s Day holiday, there are two treats: take a look at our selection of the Heart shaped crystals and our special Valentine’s Day Mix.
