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.
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.
In spite of its colour and massive formation, the qualities of gold danburite are very similar to danburite’s general properties. It is still exceptionally clearing throughout the body, has a strong mood-lifting effect, and a powerful connection with the heart.
In addition, it brings a ray of sunshine into the Solar Plexus, which then fills the entire body, further improving our spirit, and enhancing general energy level, inner strength and self-confidence. It has a clearing effect on the Throat, refining not only higher communication, but general communication as well. This quality is more pronounced with lighter-coloured pieces, while (as one might expect) darker shades have an earthier and more grounded feel, working more with the physical body.
