Green and Pink: Stones of the Heart Chakra
I've talked a lot about how to use Green Aventurine, Moss Agate, and Emeralds in Crystal Cash: Fast Easy Money Magick Using Popular Stones, since they're truly some of the classic crystals of prosperity working. However, in any discussion of the heart chakra, we become aware that there are many, many other stones that people have used to open their hearts to receive love from the universe. If you truly feel loved and cared for, you may be far more open to receiving material evidence of that love.
Rose Quartz, Watermelon Tourmaline, and Pink Tourmaline are so powerful that I plan to eventually devote a post to each of them. For now, let's take a quick look at some of the stones in the photo that you might not have tried before to support your heart chakra-- and maybe bring a little more growth and prosperity into your life.
The sphere is an interesting item owned by Peachfront Press and originally hand-crafted by spheremaker Jim Meeker. Unakite is a pink and green granite, so it combines the classic colors of the heart chakra (which are the classic colors of spring) with the down-to-earth stability of ancient granite. You'll get some debate about how different people use this stone metaphysically. But, for me, I think it's a good one to focus on bringing the love down to earth, where we can feel and bask in it. You can often find pocket tumbles of this material for $1. It's a nice one to carry and let it work on your aura while you're not even thinking about it.
Watermelon Ruby is a stone I've touched on before, both in this blog and in Crystal Cash. In short, it's a natural Ruby crystal (not usually gem grade) growing in a softer green material. I like to wear it on a lace or a chain just long enough to let it fall to my heart.
Ah, and the Moldavite. There's a controversial stone for you. The piece in the photo was purchased and bought around 1990 as an unworked teardrop of this natural stone. In recent years, there has been a scandal, with numerous accusations that people are creating fake Moldavite by pouring modern green glass of the right color into molds. Unfortunately, that's probably pretty easy to do, since Moldavite is NOT a crystal but instead a natural glass that formed from volcanic lava. You may want to be very choosy about where you buy your Moldavite, since it can be fairly pricey. I do have a few tiny pieces left, which I may feature in some upcoming giveaways.
As for its purpose... well, I was always told that it could remove secret hurts in your heart that might be holding you back. Sometimes people get very emotional the first time they wear a Moldavite. If you feel like you keep getting in your own way, you may want to experiment with this one. But be warned. I was told that you should wear it in a quiet, peaceful, private place the first time. Later on, after it has spoken to you, and you're really just wearing it for pretty, then you don't have to be so cautious. But in the beginning, if you think you might be digging into some deep emotional blocks, you may want to use caution. I don't remember digging up any great dragons from the depths when I experimented, but it's still just as well to take care. If nothing else, you may gain some interesting insight into why you do certain things that block your own path to greater riches.
I have now published a complete book containing my thoughts on working with the chakras using crystals to enhance your prosperity. You are free to read this blog online but if you'd like my thoughts all in one convenient place, you can buy the ebook here:

Malachite is another favorite for the heart chakra. Here are a couple of specimens from the Peachfront Press collection:
