The colors Pink and Green are most often associated with Love and the Heart Chakra. When I designed my line of Gemstone Chakra Bracelets, I chose the stones Green Aventurine and Pink Rose Quartz to create a Heart opening and balancing chakra bracelet.
The color Pink emits a soft loving quality to heal the heart of emotional hurts and wounds. Pink Rose Quartz offers us a soft gentle vibration and speaks to us about Love. Love on all level’s. Love for one’s self, one’s life partner, children, friends, community, the Earth and the Divine.
The color green symbolizes health and healing, harmony with nature and abundance. Think for a moment how good you feel when surrounded by the deep green of the forest. Being out in nature has a way of connecting us to our heart chakra, assisting us in feeling open hearted and at one with everyone and everything. >> Continue reading

Looking for love this Valentine’s day? Start with loving yourself.
You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.-Deepak Chopra
With Valentine’s day being on February 14th, February is known as the month of romance. But for many who don’t have a romantic partner in their life, Valentine’s day can be a lonely or even depressing holiday. Rather than close your heart to the pain of love lost, open your heart to yourself this Valentine’s day. Whether you are in a relationship or not, flow loving energy to yourself. When we first learn to truly love ourselves we can open our hearts to receive the love of others.
I love it when my Yoga Practice inspires a necklaces design. The other day I was practicing some Heart Opening Yoga poses. I was moving into a pose called “the Camel”. Reaching back to touch my feet, I could feel the stretch in my body and spontaneous began to focus on the healing energies of pink and green Tourmaline.
When my yoga practice was finished I went into my bead studio and found a stunning Tourmaline Pendant. It had both the green and pink Tourmaline stones. Next I found a strand of faceted multi-color Tourmalines to string the heart opening pendant onto. Both pink and green Tourmaline are known as Heart Chakra Stones. Tourmaline has a soothing energy for the heart and can facilitate forgiveness and emotional healing.
It’s natural to put up a protective shield around our Heart Chakra to avoid pain from loss. >> Continue reading
Fuchsite, a sparkly Heart Chakra Stone is closely connected to the Nature Spirits and Fairy Realm. After holding raw, unpolished Fuchsite you will be left with “fairy dust” in your hand. These small particles of Fuchsite closely resemble mica, because Fuchsite is a form of Mica or Muscovite. It gets its green color from the mineral Chromium. Because of its close relationship to the Nature Elements it is a wonderful stone for Holistic Healers, Shamans, Herbalists or anyone who loves to work in the garden or with nature. Try holding a piece of Fuchsite and see if indeed its energy feels very familiar. If you are looking to work with the Fairies and attract them to you, leave a piece of Fuchsite outdoors near a place you like to sit. Go there often and see if the Fairies have left you any messages.
Fuchsite has a very soothing vibration and for this it is very useful for relieving stressful situations. A good stone to have in one’s personal space in the work place, especially if the work environment doesn’t allow for opportunities to be close to nature. >> Continue reading
Over the past several weeks I immersed myself in heart chakra stones. I wanted to put together a collection of Heart Chakra jewerly as part of my Valentine’s day jewelry sale. I took out all of my pink gemstone beads and began designing Heart opening necklaces. The more I worked with Rose Quartz the more I feel in love with this stone all over again. All pink and green stones are Heart Chakra stones. There are many pink and green gemstones in the mineral kingdom and I have a vast collection of these heart stones. It is easy to over look the lovely soft Rose Quartz. As I worked with Rose Quartz I began to connect once again to its amazing energies.
While the vibration of Rose Quartz is soft and gentle, it is also very powerful. This stone reminds us that love begins with ourselves. >> Continue reading
Vibrant, rich, red. Those words describe January’s birthstone: Red Garnet. Garnets are found in many colors including red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, black, pink and colorless. The rarest of these is the blue Garnet. The Red Garnet is the most common and known as the birthstone for January as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912. Garnets were used ever since the Bronze Age. They were used in Ancient Egypt. They were also found in ancient Greece and Roman civilizations. Even today, Garnets are still a popular and much loved gemstone.
Garnets are known as a feminine energy stone. Over my 20 plus years of selling stones, I have witnessed over and over the strong appeal Garnet holds for women. Some women just seemed drawn to its feminine energies and find it difficult to wear any other stone but Garnet!
Garnet stimulates the Root Chakra and the Heart Chakra, making it a useful stone to bring your heartfelt desires into the world. >> Continue reading
Rose Quartz is perhaps one of the best known gemstones in the crystal world. Commonly known as the “stone of love.” I’ve been placing a Rose Quartz heart by my Yoga mat for the past week, in honor of Valentine’s Day. It helps me put my focus on heart opening yoga poses. Asanas like, cobra pose, cat pose, upward facing dog and bridge pose. At the end of my yoga sessions I sit and meditate with Rose Quartz and listen to its gifts.
Rose Quartz first and foremost reminds us to love ourselves. Each day when I get on my mat I am demonstrating this self love. I bring self acceptance to the mat when I feel the tightness in my muscles, and forgive the places in my body where it is difficult for me to stretch further. We often distance ourselves from self love when we feel un-entitled to it, or less than, or unworthy, or even guilty. >> Continue reading
