Heart Shaped Stones
The “Heart Symbol” is an ancient symbol dating back to antiquity. Sources of this symbol include water-lily leaves, fig fruit, silphium seeds, and female anatomy. Its first association with romantic love and human anatomy started in the middle ages and has since evolved to represent unconditional love, empathy, and solidarity. Crystals formed into the shapes of a heart help to activate the Heart (4th) chakra and emanate particularly good vibrations.
Aristotle suggested that the heart is the center of all emotion. It is a symbol to represent the spiritual, emotional, and intellectual core of human beings and is often referred to as the seat for the soul. Although this suggestion may reject obvious value of the brain, love is not something that can always be justified by logic or rational thought. Love is intuitive; it is something we feel. This being said, what better symbol is there to express such emotional depth?
