When most people think about February, the month of love, they think about a whole lot of red. From heart shaped everything, to a big bouquet of roses, there is no escaping red! In the stone world however, celebrating the month of love means paying tribute to what we like to call “heart stones,” which are predominately comprised of shades of pink and green. These “heart stones” promote healing, balance and a spiritual concept of love, compassion, growth and truth. So, what are considered “heart stones” and what can they do for you? Below are just a few of the stones that CUMAR has in stock and what people believe are the benefits of each…
