Out of all the Chakras this is the one that I get asked about the most. Imbalances in this Chakra are common and will take time to heal. I have selected some of the most useful and easy to obtain crystals for the Heart Chakra from my little book Crystal Healing For The Chakras. But first let’s get clear on the energy of this Major Chakra.
About the Heart Chakra
The Heart Chakra is also known as The Fourth Chakra, the Heart Center and the Anahata Chakra in Sanskrit. It is located in the middle of the chest area. Commonly associated with the colour green but also pink. Physically this Chakra relates to the Thymus gland, the chest area, upper back, lungs and your physical heart.

How to use Heart Chakra Crystals
There are many ways to experience the therapeutic power of crystals for the heart center. You can place the stone over the Heart Chakra (See diagram below) for 10 to 15 minutes while visualising an emerald green or pink light shinning from the center of your chest. You may wish to incorporate affirmations into this:
Heart Chakra Affirmations:
“I love. I am love. I am loved.”
“It is safe to love.”
“I completely love and accept myself.”
You can also wear Heart Chakra crystals as a necklace over the heart area or as a bracelet. Even carrying the stone is a little bag with you brings its energy into your Aura.
5 Crystals for the Heart Chakra:
As always, choose the crystal that feels right for you. You don’t need all these stones. Read the descriptions for a guide to how they work, some are gentle some are stronger.
It wouldn’t be an article on the Heart Chakra if it didn’t mention this well-loved crystal. Rose Quartz is a gentle but effective heart healer. It relates most to issues around love, relationships and self love.
Easy to find and inexpensive. Green Aventurine is also another very soothing stone to work with. It balances and heals the Heart Chakra and your emotions.
Harder to find and not cheap. This crystal is a really deep cleanser of the Heart Chakra. An ideal stone for stubborn Heart Chakra blocks and deep emotional wounds. If other crystals have not worked for you, time to release the Rhodochrosite!
The colour varies a lot with this crystal. An all round healing stone that balances and clears the Heart Chakra really well. Work with Amazonite to anchor healing energies and bring about emotional shifts in vibration.
Real Green Jade is not cheap and often faked. Many people don’t realise Jade also works on the Heart Chakra. It is also a gentle stone and brings a peaceful energy where negativity and emotional pain resides. It also protects the heart.
