Additional Information

Titanite is calming, balancing and stabilises moods and emotions. It supports the immune system, acts as a general all-round healing crystal, and especially promotes healing of sinus problems and bone and soft tissue damage. Spiritually, it aids the gentle opening and clearing of the Third Eye and Crown Chakras, allowing for further spiritual growth, and emotionally does the same with the Heart Chakra, releasing stagnant emotions and sadness.
