Many people on a spiritual path believe that to truly evolve,
they must never get angry, they must never refuse the demands
of others, even if these demands seem unreasonable.
Kunzite can mediate between the heart that says, "yes" and
the mind that says "not on your life." It tells us that
there are times when anger may be a loving response, and
that sometimes to not express it is an act of unkindness.
It tells us when saying no is a loving choice. It helps
us to set wise boundaries.
This stone is part of the heart triad that also includes
Rose Quartz and Pink Tourmaline. Rose Quartz heals the wounds
of the heart and allows us to experience unconditional love
for ourselves. Pink Tourmaline enables us to give unconditional

creating a state of emotional calmness, security, and maturity.
In appearance it's a flat crystal with parallel striations

In meditation, Kunzite can be placed on the heart chakra,
either alone or with Rose Quartz and Pink Tourmaline or
Pink Calcite. It can also be placed on the third eye, with
Rose Quartz on the heart centre, to further blend the energies
of heart and mind.
It's a wonderful stone to give to anyone who is experiencing
emotional confusion, a troubled mental state, or putting
unrealistic (and unloving) demands on themselves.
