DAY 20 | Thulite Heart
Why a heart?
The heart is often used to symbolise a person's moral, emotional, spiritual and even intellectual substance. The heart has been referred to and believed to be the core of one’s humanity. It was used and is still used as the primary symbol that represents LOVE. Or is it?
A group of researchers believes that the heart symbol is not remotely related to the human heart but is more of an ancient depiction of something more sexual in nature. However, the heart symbol has evolved over the centuries for today, the heart symbol best expresses LOVE on all levels.
True enough today, the heart symbol is widely recognised not only as a symbol of love but of compassion, joy, and charity.

The History of Thulite
First discovered in Norway in the early 1800s, Thulite derives its name from the word Thule, a mythical island where current day Norway resides, representing the most northern boundaries of the world at the time.
Thulite is the national stone of Norway, and it comes mostly from the Leksvik, on the western shore of the Trondheimsfjorden. However, since its initial discovery, there have been veins discovered in Australia, South Africa, Russia, the United States, Sweden, Italy, Austria and Japan.
Also referred to as Rosaline, Thulite is the pink variety of the Zoisite mineral group. It’s a manganese, calcium, aluminium hydroxy sorosilicate, with colours ranging from pale pink to deep rose with a sparkly, silky lustre. The pink colour is extremely rare compared to other, more common varieties of Zoisite found in blues and purples.
The colours in your Thulite crystal depend on the Manganese concentration and there may also be black, grey, and white inclusions in Thulite stones.
Thulite rates a 6-6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, it is vulnerable to scratches and needs to be handled gently.
What is Thulite used for?
Thulite radiates love, compassion, joy, and serenity. Known as a stone of expression and passion, soft yet spicy Thulite is a great choice for introverts, granting the confidence, eloquence, and showmanship to speak and perform in front of others (anywhere from on stage to between the sheets). Thulite inspires you to embrace acceptance and empathy in your interactions, from professional to personal relationships and beyond.
Sweet Thulite is a powerful healer of a wounded heart. If you’ve been shacked up at the (metaphorical) Heartbreak Hotel, crying into your Rosé for too damn long, it’s time to step away from the wine and let Thulite be your pink drink of choice. Letting go is so hard, but worth it. Try envisioning your Thulite crystal giving you a big ethereal hug and letting its energy shield you from any unnecessary pain and trauma. Thulite will also promote self-love.
Celebrate your strengths and embrace your flaws, break down destructive habits and fight addictions, find guidance and the strength to move on, discover a healthier sense of appreciation for yourself and your abilities, release your guilt and learn to trust your gut again, all with Thulite by your side.
