Pink Halite is a type of Halite that had its color tainted from bacteria of various algae species. Halite is known as the “natural form of salt” and is a very common mineral found near oceans and salt lakes. This stone can be found in the form of masses and a tubular crystal structure. The specimen pictured below is from a dried up salt lake in San Bernardino, California. Be careful to avoid getting pieces of Pink Halite wet as it may start to disintegrate before your eyes.
Pink Halite is a stone that pushes one to love every ounce of themselves and who they truly are. It’s a strong stone that helps one release emotional strain weighing down on them daily. Such feelings as self guilt, low self-esteem, and overwhelming anxiety are perfect symptoms of someone who should carry a piece daily. Pink Halite urges one to open their heart and allow all emotional strain to surface so that it may be dealt with. Once one has accepted what has happened, only then can they move on from it.
Pink Halite is also a stone of great clarity. This stone has been known to assist in providing uplifting energies to anyone who constantly suffers from a foggy mind or lack of mental energy. It helps one who is constantly debating or weighing certain decisions in their head, and pushes one in a direction. This stone teaches one to take great pride and care in their personal decisions they make, and assists with finding an abundance of joy in these difficult decisions.
One special trait Pink Halite offers is the ability to provide a full etheric cleansing bath. Imagine using a piece of this majority salt mineral as a “bath bomb” and laying in a tub full of hot, steamy water. This will clear and cleanse one’s aura and help replenish energies that have been used up.
Pink Halite works well with a variety of other heart based stones such as Rose Quartz, Atlantisite, and Green Apatite. All these stones have been known to help in opening the heart and increasing the strength of the Pink Halite’s healing vibrations. When working with Pink Halite with the intention of aura cleansing, we recommend using Selenite. Selenite is a known enhancer and is a stone that does not absorb any negativity. When cleansing ones aura, negative vibrations can find a home in stones that are vulnerable, and Selenite is NOT that. We recommend cleansing and clearing your Pink Halite piece with sage or palo santo each time you finish using it. It's a stone that works with the heart, thus coming in contact with the strongest of energies.
