Heart Chakra (Anahata) is the fourth energy center from the bottom, located in the middle of the chest, near the heart.
Heart chakra functions as your spiritual center, which helps you to grow a loving connection to yourself and others by cultivating compassion, empathy, the joy of being alive, and truth.
Some of the main functions of the heart chakra are:
The main color of the heart chakra is green. However, some of the stones which match the energetic frequency of the 4th chakra are pink.
Green is a naturally calming and soothing color, as it encourages a general sense of harmony and balance. The dynamic energy of green (observed specifically during the Spring season) represents growth, expansion, and openness.
Green chakra stones will bring your heart center to harmony, help you with relationships and bring new opportunities into your life.
