I have listed my favourite Crystals in alphabetical order to make it easier for you and I am sure there will be new ones added as we go along
Considered to be one of the most powerful stones for emotional healing, Rose quartz is very popular and can be known as the ‘love stone’.
It is an uncommon variety of quartz and is very brittle, often containing many fractures. Because of it's high value, it is used almost exclusively for jewellery and ornamentation. The pink colour is thought to derive from titanium or manganese oxides. Rose quartz was highly valued in the classical world both for decoration purposes and healing qualities. Seal rings for example still exist from the Roman era. Rose quartz is an effective stone for reducing all aggravating or aggressive conditions. It encourages better understanding and increases self-worth. It also helps to neutralise the damage caused by poor self-image and a build-up of emotional stress, both of which can prevent effective healing. Placed close to the heart, large pieces of rose quartz can release stress and trauma rapidly. Sometimes this process can cause discomfort so care should be taken to balance the release with calming and stabilising stones.
Selenite is named after a Greek goddess of the moon Selene because of its gentle white lustre.
This is a transparent, gem-quality variety of the common mineral gypsum. It forms long, blade-like crystals made up of parallel sheets of rock. Gypsum is extremely soft and can be easily scratched. It is formed from the evaporation of saltwater lakes and ancient seas. The extreme delicacy of selenite severely limits its use – the stone has high water content and exposure to heat, or a change of humidity can bend the crystals. If left in water too long, selenite can easily separate into thin leaves. Selenite is one of the best stones with which to bring about a rapid shift of energy. It can quickly disperse accumulations of negativity in the aura, and will remove blockages and stagnant energy from the body. Selenite also brings flexibility, spiritual insight and creativity. It can be relaxing and eases bodily tension.
Hold Smoky Quartz to help relieve tension, stress, anxiety, or panic attacks; also to ward off negative thinking, and to eliminate worry and doubt when faced with chaos or confusion. To absorb misfortune, sorrow or seemingly impossible obstacles, hold faceted or natural points of Smoky Quartz in each hand pointed down toward the ground, then consciously release these negative energies to Mother Earth for cleansing and repurposing.
Smoky Quartz links with the Earth, stimulating concern for the environment and inspiring ecological solutions. Use its protective energies to block geopathic stress and absorb electromagnetic smog given off by power lines and electronics. It is an extraordinary amulet of protection. Smoky Quartz helps guard the home, vehicles and possessions against theft, damage and accidents caused by human error. I would suggest keeping one in a purse, a bag in the glove box or near valuables, especially if left unattended for long periods of time. As a driving crystal, Smoky Quartz protects against road rage and other harm while driving on motorways, on long journeys or in heavy traffic by reducing stress and increasing concentration. It is also said to shield against unexpected mechanical breakdowns.
Smoky Quartz is one of the most powerful stones to use in crystal healing layouts to activate and purify the Base or Root Chakra. It may also be used to balance and direct the energy of the upper chakras to the Base Chakra, making the whole system radiant with light and laying a foundation on which the spiritual force can be manifested in the physical body.
