Aquamarine – Stone of Courage & Stability

Aquamarine is a type of beryl, and is actually just a lighter, bluish colored version of emerald. Its hardness is about 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale. The color of aquamarine ranges from pale blue to deep blue, to light green, and can be either opaque or clear. Like all beryl gemstones, aquamarine crystallizes as hexagonal prismatic crystals with vertical striations, and large, near-perfect crystals over 5 inches long are sometimes found, although opaque specimens caused by inclusions are much more common. Most aquamarine is found in Brazil and Colombia, which are traditionally the top emerald producing countries as

Understanding Synchronicity

Synchronicity has always intrigued me. To those who believe in it, there are no coincidences, and for those who don’t, synchronicities are merely very uncanny coincidences.

Some of you may know this as the location of the heart chakra. In alternative healing practice, the thymus is considered to be the seat of the soul. Other beliefs call the thymus the seat of

Crystal balls

Crystal balls are carved crystals that are made to resemble a ball or sphere. Metaphysically, they possess the most harmonious of all the energies attributed to crystals. But in the case of quartz, crystal balls don’t occur naturally; they have to be shaped by a human hand. Most crystal balls today are made of quartz, which does not naturally occur as balls. This may be why, they seem to lose a little of their original native crystal qualities after being cut and polished into balls, but at the same time, become splendid tools in the hands of an experienced crystal
