What is a crystal heart?

A crystal heart is a heart-shaped carving polished from any stone. For healing purposes, we use only crystal hearts that are polished from natural gemstones. 

What does a crystal heart represent?

Crystal hearts represent your life force and the most powerful energy in the world: love. Just looking at a crystal heart invokes a feeling of love. The heart shape is a universal symbol of love, romance, and affection. 

What does a crystal heart symbolize metaphysically?

Metaphysically, a crystal heart represents your Heart chakra. The Heart chakra vibrates at the center of your spiritual being. Crystal hearts help to balance the Heart chakra so you can best give and receive love energy from the Universe. Hearts help you focus on the core of your being, addressing your emotional and spiritual health. 

How do you use crystal hearts in healing?

Crystal hearts are an ideal shape to use in many healing practices because they are usually smooth, flat, and have a tip to direct energy.

Here are some ideas on how to use your crystal hearts in your metaphysical rituals:

Meditation with Crystal Hearts

Program your crystal hearts for whatever loving intent you desire. Choose smooth gemstone hearts and hold one in each hand while you are meditating. 

Journaling with Crystal Hearts

Program your crystal heart with your intentions and place it in front of you while you are journaling. Let whatever thoughts flow from your subconscious mind. Your crystal heart will remind you that there is no need to judge your words, just accept them as they come.

Journaling with crystal hearts is an excellent exercise in self-love. Release the unwanted thoughts from your mind and cherish the loving ones. When you are done, place your crystal heart on top of your journal until your next writing session.

Feng Shui Placement with Crystal Hearts

For Feng Shui purposes, crystal hearts are ideal to place in the bedroom and the living room. For romantic love, place your crystal hearts on both bedstands. For all kinds of loving relationships, place crystal hearts in your living room.

Crystal hearts are beautiful and will attract high vibrations into your space. 

Crystal Hearts for Massage

You don't have to be a massage practitioner to enjoy the healing benefits of a crystal heart massage. The tip of the gemstone heart is great for releasing deep tissue pain at trigger points. The smoother top domes can be used to gently rub large muscles. Try a circular motion for specific pain relief. Try an up and down motion to get your blood flow going. 

Crystal heart massage is best if you have a partner to work with but can be done on your own if necessary!

Relieving Anxiety with Crystal Hearts

Use your crystal hearts as worry stones, rubbing their smooth surface whenever you are feeling anxiety. Release your stress and tension as you infuse your aura with the healing energy of your crystal. 

Small crystal hearts are great for portability. Slip them in your purse or pocket and have them available whenever you are feeling anxious.

Why should I gift a crystal heart?

Gifting a crystal heart to someone is the ultimate symbol of love. No words are needed, the heart shape says it all.

Whether it is romantic or platonic, the heart signifies that you want to maintain, mend, or enhance your current relationship.

Here are some reasons you may want to gift a crystal heart: 

  • You want to say you are sorry

  • You want to express your joy

  • You want to gift a token of remembrance

How do you cleanse and charge a crystal heart?

Depending on the type of stone that was used to create your crystal heart will determine how you can clean it physically. For softer stones like Selenite and Angelite, you will only want to use a soft cloth or something as airy as a feather duster. For harder stones like Quartz and Agate, you will be able to use water and soap or even an organic glass cleaner. 

To energetically clean, charge, and program your stone hearts for healing, you can choose from a variety of methods. This includes water (for the harder stones), incense, crystal clusters, the power of the moon or the rays of the sun. Check out our Crystal Care guide to learn more. 

Sheila's personal experiences with crystal hearts

I love crystal hearts because they don't require any explanation. When I gift a crystal heart, the receiver knows what it means. They are the ultimate symbol of love.

I have gifted a Tigers Eye heart to a friend who lost her husband as a token of her strength, his memories, and my condolences.

I have gifted a Rose Quartz heart for a friend who was struggling with self-love, to open her Heart chakra and show that I care. 

I have gifted an Obsidian heart to a relative who was always complaining about his work, to keep him protected and to remind him to focus on the positive aspects of his job. 

I have a whole selection of crystal hearts in the Satin Crystals studio, laid out on the shelf. They look spectacular in all of their different size and shapes and healing energies.

Lisa's personal experiences with crystal hearts

Hearts are easy to love and fulfilling to use. I adore big glossy polished hearts like Labradorite and Blue Agate. They shimmer with love energy no matter where you place them.

However, I also have a special affinity to Amethyst cluster hearts. Purple is so soothing and reminds me that love comes from a divine order. They also serve as chargers for smaller stones, infusing those gems with powerful love energy too.

If I'm feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or negative... I grab hold a crystal heart and place it right near my Heart Chakra. The world slows down, my energy center falls into rhythm, and everything is okay again.

How to use the top 7 crystal hearts

Now that you know how to use crystal hearts in general healing, here are specific ways you can use the top 7 hearts: 

Selenite Hearts to seal energy leaks

Sealing your energy is especially important when you are going through heartbreaks. Preserve your well-being and let the Selenite heart guard you against additional trauma. Cast a spell of security in your aura and keep your Selenite hearts nearby.


Amethyst Hearts for spiritual love

When you feel like you've lost that connection with your Higher Self, use Amethyst hearts to rekindle the bond. Amethyst puts you in a meditative state, helps you see the big picture, and raises your vibrations so that you are no longer stuck worrying about irrelevant details. Amethyst hearts are also great for peaceful sleep and relaxation.


Quartz Hearts for enhanced love

Quartz is a crystal for amplifying energies. In the heart shape, Quartz is all about enhancing love energies. Place a Clear Quartz heart on your Third Eye chakra to clarify your confusion in love. It will act as a megaphone at your Heart chakra to broadcast your loving intentions into the Universe.

Moonstone Hearts for Feminine Divine

Choose Moonstone hearts when you are working on strengthening your feminine side. We all have male yang and female yin energy and when you want to give your feminine energies some love, Moonstone is the stone for you. Moonstone has a direct line to the Moon Goddess who bestows you with her wisdom, patience, and eternal understanding. 

Angelite Hearts for angelic notions

Angelite hearts fill your heart with peaceful vibrations. When you are feeling anxious or restless, keep these serene stones with you to connect with the angelic realm. These Angelite crystal hearts remind you to breathe and let go of expectations. Enjoy each moment in loving harmony with the world around you. 

Rose Quartz Hearts for Unconditional Love

When you think of love crystals, Rose Quartz is the first stone that jumps to mind. This crystal's pink hues are synonymous with sweet joy. Gift Rose Quartz hearts as a symbol of your unconditional love. Use it on your Heart chakra and clear the blocks that are keeping you from Universal Oneness. 

Rhodonite Hearts for Bonded Soulmates

Rhodonite is foremost about self-love. With Rhodonite hearts, you work up to true love. This true love can be romantic or platonic. Rhodonite bonds you with soulmates that come in and out of your life to teach you valuable lessons. Cherish each soulmate and learn your lessons quickly so that you can keep the right friends and lovers through eternity.
