African Jade and Emerald Necklace
Description: African jade is found and mined solely in South Africa. It's structure makes it very strong and unlikely to break, but as is the case with all gemstones, care should be taken to avoid harsh chemicals or extreme temperatures. This heart chakra necklace reminds me of the color of summer grass with flecks of lighter greens and tawny browns. I also love the softened triangle shape. I like to hold this stone in my hand, as I find the larger size very steadying. The finishing touch on this jewel is an emerald. We couldn't resist.
Heart Chakra Information for African Jade and Emerald Necklace
The fourth chakra is located in the heart, chest and shoulders. It is called the heart chakra because it is the place where we feel joy and a universal love for all of life. It is a place of healing and hope. Love, compassion and kindness are positive feelings we hold in the heart chakra. Negative emotions such as despair, depression, cruelty and loneliness are felt in this area as well. Common phrases that describe the sensations of the heart would include: "My heart was overflowing with happiness", "(He/She) broke my heart", "I love you with all my heart" or "How can you be so heartless?" Depression is often described as having a heavy heart, or carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. More than any other chakra, the state of our heart chakra determines how happy we feel.
