Kunzite is such a PERFECT Stone for this month – if you read this you will be motivated to go out and buy one!

Kunzite is an unusual and rare stone believed to be originally discovered in 1877 at the Pala Chief Mine near San Diego, California.  It contains lithium, a well-known calming agent used in traditional medicine, and because of its pleochroic qualities, it can appear up to three different colors, depending on the angle from which it is viewed.  The lithium containing spodumene has been coined as a soothing stone, releasing tension, promoting peace, and emitting tranquil vibrations.

Known to create balance between the physical and spiritual bodies, Kunzite transforms lower forms of our emotions and refines them into something higher.  People can move towards compassion and unconditional lovingness for others due to its opening doorway influences of a better connection to our higher selves.  It will support us with emotional problems such as grief, loss, or trauma by lifting our vibrations and moving us to a healthier perspective. 

Coined as a symbol of infinity, Kunzite works to dig out any old, stuck, toxic stuff so it can be ‘aired’ and released once and for all.  This is HUGE right now, where we are rapidly learning to detach from tragedy, death, or destruction of the old.  Its protective qualities dispel negativity, removing obstacles in our lives, and assisting us in adjusting to life’s pressures.  It also deepens altered states and strengthens healers and teachers.

Physical implications include the following: calms panic attacks and psychiatric disorders, calms epilepsy, heals abuse and addictions, reduces depression, mood swings, stress, and radiation, soothes joint pain, stimulates the immune and circulatory systems, and supports the lungs.
