Both of these stones are connected to the heart chakra so they are both great for love connections! It is great for healing and listening because it connects people emotions. Therapists and healers are recommended to wear Pink Tourmaline for it helps patients open up their emotions and and let loose of negative energy. Those who suffer from panic attacks and anxiety are encouraged to wear pink tourmaline as well for its remarkable ways in healing. So the next time you are trying to swoon a new love or just loosen up your feelings grab slap on your favorite piece of Pink Tourmaline!
The Jasper of the day is Ocean Jasper! Ocean Jasper is very beautiful and very rare, being only found on the remote coast of Madagascar which can only be mined at low tide. Ocean Jasper is great for opening and activating both the throat and heart chakra, which is why it helps people to express their feelings of love through actions. It is also known for helping people to relax and bring cooperation to their lives.
The crystal of the week is Tourmaline! Tourmaline comes in multiple colors and forms and is found all over the world. You can find basically every color of the rainbow in a piece of Tourmaline however, it grows in quartz so it is very difficult to extract the crystal pieces from their matrix without breaking them. Every piece of Tourmaline has its own metaphysical properties so everyday this week I will be highlighting a specific type of Tourmaline. Today will be Blue Tourmaline or scientifically know as Indicolite. Blue Tourmaline is great for activating the throat chakra. Thus helping heal the lungs, neck and respiratory problems. Mentally is helps maximize perception, thought, intelligence and absorption of information. Next time you are cramming for a big test remember to wear a piece of Blue Tourmaline!
The crystal this week is magical and beautiful Rhodonite! Deriving from the Greek word for Rose: rhodon, it ranges from dark pink, to translucent with sometimes brown and black veins running through the color. It is magically known for helping us to manifest deep wants and ambition and also for improving communication skills and helping our voices get heard. It is also very helpful in easing times of transition, such as a move or a next step in life. A great stone to use during meditation for its calming and strong motivation properties.
Amazonite is the crystal of the week! Named after the Amazon River for its bluish and green coloring, it is actually not even found in the Amazon, mostly in Madagascar, Mexico, Russia and Canada. Popular in ancient Egypt jewelry and artwork, for it was very easy to handle and mold. Amazonite has traditionally been linked to fertility, protection and spirits of the dead. Many people use Amazonite to help conjure up spirits and distant and lost memories. It is also said to help upper respiratory problems, inspire creativity, support communication and release emotions.
The crystal of the week is the mysterious and magical Moldavite. Most commonly found in The Czech Republic, it is thought to be formed from a meterorite crahsing into sand. Many people associate it as being a space stone, and therefore it makes people feel “spacey”. Moldavite is translucent green stone with a rough texture. It helps connect people into their inner selves and true being. Very good for meditation and other forms of self awareness.
