Additional Information

All colours, but particularly pink, stimulate Heart energy and can create a connection between the Heart, Third Eye, Crown and Higher Crown Chakras, promoting deep change spiritually, and helping us to leave the past behind, both emotionally and on a karmic level. It can also promote love of self. Danburite shines with a bright clear light, believed to originate from the Higher Dimensions, creating a link with the Angelic Realms. It is a strong healer and detoxifier, has a mood-lifting effect, and is sometimes associated with passion and libido.

Grey Danburite

In addition to the properties of pink danburite, Grey Danburite possesses a denser, more confined energy, particularly when in the form of single, doubly terminated crystals. It strongly connects us to our Spirit Guides, facilitating communication, and also has a pain-relieving effect.
