This beautiful combination is now being sold as a pair under the name Tanzurine. It is perfect for August which is the heart-centred Leo month. Leos are here to learn about the power of keeping the heart centre open no matter what. Not in a pouring it all out indiscriminately way, but as a gentle expansive energy that brings the three-chambered heart chakra into balance (see Crystal Prescriptions 4 for more details on this high vibration chakra that brings together the heart, higher heart and heart seed chakras). Here’s what I wrote to a strict word count, very compressed and concise. (There’s more info below.)
These two colours complement each other. The soft energy is excellent for harmonising the heart and immune system. In synergistic partnership, Tanzurine restores the rhythm of life, resetting the physiological and subtle energy systems. If polarity has been reversed, the pair restore normality. They act on the electrical system of the heart, regulating it. A natural pacemaker, Tanzurine calms an over-active heartbeat and stimulates a sluggish one. The combination expands the heart chakra, creating a greater capacity for giving and receiving unconditional love. Tanzurine releases old ties and resentment and encourages speaking about the hurts incurred. Once release has taken place, the stones stimulate forgiveness.
Appearance: Combination of clear Quartz with flecks of colour throughout or clear coloured Quartz.
Colour: Cherry Quartz: purplish-red. Emerald Quartz: emerald green
Composition: Cherry Quartz: Lepidolite (Lithium) mica in Quartz
Emerald Quartz: Fuchsite mica in Quartz
Qualities: Emerald Quartz is an opener, Cherry Quartz a charger. Together in synergistic partnership, these gentle stones restore the rhythm of life. Resetting the whole physiological and subtle energy systems. If a polarity has been reversed, the crystals restore the correct polarity. These two crystals acting together form a natural pacemaker for the heart creating an infinity loop over it. They calm a pounding heart and regulate an erratic pulse or stimulate a sluggish heartbeat. Place one above the heart on the higher heart (thymus) chakra and one over the heart seed at the base of the breastbone. The heartbeat quickly indicates which needs to go above and which below. Together they act on the electrical system of the heart, regulating it.
At a subtle level the combination expands the energy of the heart chakra, creating a greater capacity for the giving and receiving of unconditional love.
Cherry Quartz placed over the thymus stimulates deep breathing with more air being taken in, resulting in reoxygenation of the whole body.
The combination also stimulates (Cherry) or soothes (Emerald) the autoimmune system returning it to balance when over- or under-active.
Placing the crystals on the heart seed and higher heart chakras releases spinal tension and contraction, extending the spine. A noticeable reduction in arthritic pain is quickly produced.
Emotionally, placing the crystals over the heart and then placing two more in the groin creases, or between the thumb and first finger of each hand, which is then placed in the groin crease, enables the releasing of old ties and resentment and encourages speaking about the hurts incurred. Once the release has taken place, the stones soothe the heart and stimulate forgiveness.
Using the crystals before bed ensures an excellent night’s sleep and is particularly useful in cases of prolonged insomnia.
Healing: heart and circulation, thymus, autoimmune and respiratory systems, spinal contraction, insomnia, arthritis, spine, sleep patterns
