Heart Chakra (located between the breasts)
Green Aventurine and Rose Quartz

Represented by the colour green, this chakra connects body and mind with spirit and directs one’s ability to love oneself and others, to give and to receive. The healed inner child lives here. Blockages include pain from having been abused; pain from having abused other people/animals; feeling unloved; feeling unable to love; rejection, jealousy, grief, loneliness, difficulties in relationships of all types. Green Aventurine is perhaps the best balancing stone for the heart chakra. The stone encourages calmness and positivity, helping to release emotional pain in a gentle and effective way. Rose Quartz restores calmness, balance and clarity to emotions, helping to attract positive and gentle energy into one’s life. Placed close to the heart, large pieces can release stress and trauma rapidly. This may cause discomfort, so care should be taken to balance the release with more calming and stabilizing stones; hence, Green Aventurine and Rose Quartz can work together.
