Ruby is an intense Heart crystal, which brings joy, vigour and love of life. Some crystal therapists associate it with the Root Chakra, and therefore libido as well as grounding and protection, and the denser, magenta-tinted stones align with the Upper Crown Chakra in some colour therapy systems. Combining these qualities, ruby creates a powerful Heart connection with the Divine, while helping us to keep our feet on the ground, and is very good for working from the Heart, on a spiritual level. Ruby can support our energy levels when we are run down, but on its own may be a little too powerful in the treatment of ME and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), However, potency may vary considerably, and some crystals may be fine for such use. Alternatively, a specimen with a matrix of green zoisite or fuchsite can help to balance this potency, and is also extremely balancing for the immune system, so aiding recovery.
Green zoisite clears and stimulates the chakras, particularly the Heart and with it the lungs, as well as the body’s energy field, removing unwanted/unhealthy energy and clearing it out through the legs and into the Earth. The Heart is affected wherever the zoisite is held, but for other chakras, it may be necessary to place it on or near the area for best results. The energy tends to be a bit ‘fizzy’, and this might be slightly uncomfortable to the client/user, but the end result leaves one more awake, alert and clear-headed. In conjunction with ruby, this stone is one of the supreme Heart and immune system balancers, and is beneficial in the treatment of autoimmune diseases, and illnesses in which the immune system is compromised, such as ME and CFS.
