This super high vibe crystal looks similar to quartz but has a different structure and a unique spirit. Wonderful for the crown chakra, apophyllite is encouraging, uplifting, expanding, and supportive. If the clear variety isn't doing it for you, try looking for a specimen in one of the lovely colors it can grow in (I recommend green!). Abundant and affordable, it often grows with stilbite. And I always say, "What grows together, goes together." So enjoy a piece featuring both if you find one!
This orange-hued member of the garnet family is so juicy and fun it's not to be believed! If you want to boost your qi, stir up some prana, get those creative juices flowing, and get moving in your life (hello, sacral chakra!), then this little powerhouse gem is for you. Spessartite (a.k.a. spessartine garnet) will help you get to the next level and make sure you have a good time doing it. Also a great choice for someone suffering with seasonal affective disorder, but may need to be worked up to for someone dealing with deeper depression or grief.
This cool, blue, heavenly variety of the normally earthy aragonite mineral is a real crowd pleaser. I don't know anyone who isn't drawn to it. It is like a balm for the throat chakra, easily opening and clearing expressive blocks and enabling higher communication. And if you want to have a little chat with your angels and spirit guides but don't know where to start, look not further. Blue aragonite opens those doors wide effortlessly. Specimens may be rare, but you should be able t locate a tumble polished palm stone.
First discovered in Arizona, this whopper of a crystal works wonders for the third eye. It's deep cerulean tones are like the waters of a bottomless ocean, inviting you to dive in. Great for settling the nervous system and calming those who suffer with anxiety, shattuckite helps us embrace the lesson of surrender. It enables us to explore our subconscious and integrate our shadow with less fear, and it quickly dismantles unhealthy triggers.
I have never met a jasper I didn't like. Ocean jasper is truly a wonder to behold. A limited resource, I always tell clients that if they find a piece of ocean jasper they like, they should go ahead and get it, as it's becoming increasingly harder to locate. It's multi-hued, mottled appearance makes every stone unique. Ocean jasper is my stone of hope. It helps us to let go of what we are strangling to death with our grip, and it is wonderful for cleansing, releasing, and restoring.
