To the eye, pink is a very gentle, subtle colour and over time it has come to represent positive qualities such as fidelity, friendship, honour unconditional love, romance and tranquillity. Pink crystals inherit these properties and, as such, are stones of serenity and balance, which may be used to bring peace, love and beauty into your life.
Pink for positivity
Pink is a calming colour, helping you to feel more relaxed and able to deal with difficult situations. The pink hues of morganite, for example, heighten your powers of concentration, open your psychic faculties and promote positive feelings.
Traditionally pink has also been considered a feminine colour, because of its gentle qualities. In the West, this is seen in the pink for girls and blue for boys aspect of baby's clothes.
The Complementary Colour
Through mythological and astrological associations - this colour is associated with the Zodiac sign Libra through Venus' governance - pink is closely connected with the subtle qualities of harmony and balance.
The balancing quality of pink is also shown by the fact that it harmonises well with other colours. It calms the heat of red an warms the coldness of blue.
Pink stones such as rhodocrosite may be used to strengthen the body's energy, because their harmonising power can balance and repair the aura.
Pink crystals are important in crystal healing, primarily because they bring balance to the Heart Chakra, which in turn is your centre of balance. The Heart Chakra also responds to the colour green, which represents love in terms of envy and jealousy. Pink crystals can be used to harmonise the Heart Chakra and counterbalance the 'green' energies of love, dispelling jealous feelings.
