AMAZONITE
HARMONY - INTEGRITY - COMMUNICATION
When we think of Amazons we think about two things, we think about thick strong and luscious forests and strong and powerful women that are kicking ass and takin’ names. Amazonite lets you embrace your warrior goddess by supporting personal progress and encourages taking control over your own destiny. It boosts intuition and puts the emotions into harmony. So put on your battle armour and show them all whose boss.
  
AMBER
ENERGY - ATTRACTION - LIGHT
When you consider that Amber is LITERALLY a fossil, you can actually sit with how truly amazing it is! This ancient stone once started out as tree sap and now over millennia of pressure and darkness, it is once again in the light. That is the very essence of Amber. It has a connection to earthly energy, but it attracts light and good vibes; drawing in luck, happiness and good fortune (like it attracted that mosquito in Jurassic Park).  Because of its unique material structure Amber can take all kinds of shapes and sizes, from bumpy and natural looking too rounded and smooth. Wearing Amber, or holding onto it somewhere near your body is the ideal way to get the most out of your stone’s fabulous effects!
 
 
AMETHYST
CALM - PATIENCE - MANIFESTATION
Dream on! Amethysts are often called the ‘stone of the dreamers’ because they inspire positive thoughts and inspire us to go out and manifest our dreams into reality.  As a stone of manifestation, they are perfect for goal setting; whether your goal is to land that new job, fit into those lycra yoga pants or just live more peacefully. Amethysts also have this uncanny ability to help us build empathic bridges and see other people’s perspectives. Making opening up about what we want and communicating it to others much easier.
 
 
AMETHYST - CHEVRON
BALANCE - MEDITATION - UPLIFTING
Chevron Amethyst is a balanced combination of Amethyst and White Quartz, mixed together in everyone’s favourite zig-zag pattern. Chevron Amethyst combines the strengthening and cleansing qualities of Quartz with the stress relieving and manifesting qualities of Amethyst; honestly the best combination since champagne and OJ.
 
 
AMETHYST – DARK
CONNECTION TO DIVINE SELF - SPIRITUAL GROWTH - INTUITION
As soon as we finished watching the Dark Crystal on the Netflix we saw that this stone became available. COINCIDENCE!?  Ya probably, but still! Dark Amethyst delves deeper into your spiritual self, this stone is especially useful for people who are interested in spiritualism and energy but still finding themselves as  Sceptical Sallys. Let me break it down for ya, regular Amethyst is perfect for manifestation, calming and dreaming. Dark Amethyst is for really connecting to your spiritual self, that divine being connected to all energy and increasing your intuition and feelings. This is a stone that I would recommend charging up regularly on Selenite, or in the moonlight!
 
 
AMETHYST – ELESTIAL
SENSITIVITY TO OTHERS - EMPATHIC ABILITIES - MANIFESTATION
Some people are naturally empathetic to others; they pick up people’s feelings and energies without even trying. This is a double-edged sword these people often build connections with people easily and make excellent listeners, but they are often drained quickly being around others and quick to feel bogged down by others energies. If you are feeling like you just can’t understand someone (perhaps Susan in HR, who for some reason, seems to hate your guts) and you want to understand why this is the stone for you. Tapping into the empath energy and allowing the wearer to acknowledge a deeper understanding of those around them and others intentions. WE HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU  CLEANSE THIS BAD BOY ON THE REGULAR! Using it can pick up all those feelings and emotions and you don’t need that kind of energy ALL the time.
 
AMETHYST - PINK
TRUST - LOVE - PEACE OF MIND
Going into new relationships can be super exciting, your heart can be all butterflies and rainbows. It can be a magical time, but it can also be very scary. It is hard to trust someone new with something as precious as your heart. Unfortunately, not opening up because you’re afraid to get hurt again is like a self-fulfilling prophecy for loneliness and pain! Help your heart feel at ease with the help of Pink Amethyst. Like, it’s purple cousin, it provides calm and peace of mind, reducing levels of stress and anxiety, but with a specific focus on the heart. It truly is a beautiful stone and the energy that it gives out is beautiful as well. 
  
AMETRINE
HEALING - STUDYING - FOCUS
Do you know what sucks serious  ****? Uni, that’s what! Ya, I said it, university/TAFE and studying sucks. You spend every waking moment stressing about one deadline (or 4), you always have a midterm coming up (or  4), you  stay up until 1 (or 4) trying to get it all done and if we  are being honest by the end of the term you get so exhausted you end up procrastinating and watching 1 episode (or 4) of something on Netflix to ESCAPE the never-ending hell that  is trying to focus. OH, AND YOU’RE PAYING  GOOD MONEY FOR THIS. Well, thankfully I know a really good trick to help you focus that is perfectly legal. Step 1 take a cold shower, Step 2 grab some Ametrine and Step 3 GET SHIT DONE. Ametrine is the stone of study, it helps the holder focus on a singular task at hand, particularly if it involves using your brain! Hold on out there my stressed out, sleep-deprived students, help is on the way!  
 
 
ANGELITE
GENTLENESS - HEALING - PEACE
Angelite is like the affectionate nurse you had when you broke your arm or that primary school teacher who always encouraged you to have a go, or that coach who always believed in you and cheered you on. It’s like having a little angel in your back pocket that cheers you on and encourages you to make healing decisions for yourself. We need more peaceful warriors who go into the world and leaving a wake of peace and love; why not you?
 
 
APATITE 
INSPIRATION - GOAL SETTING - BALANCE
Go get’er tiger! Apatite is a powerful manifestation stone for setting and achieving goals. Think of it like your own personal life coach! Sure you still have to work hard at getting there, but Apatite keeps your vision of the future clear in your mind so that you continue to be inspired to reach your goals!
 
 
APOPHYLLITE
CLEANSING - ENTHUSIASM - ORGANISATION
We are pretty much obsessed with Marie Kondo, that lady changed our life, #MarieKondo4eva; the only other thing that has come close to hitting our organisational sweet spot is Apophyllite. This beautiful stone encourages enthusiasm, zest for life and organisational behaviour. It’s like the perfect spring cleaning cheerleader. Cleansing your space and your energy is so therapeutic and this crystal will give you the extra oomph to get ‘er done! What we are trying to say is Apophyllite definitely “sparks joy” in our books!
 
 
AQUAMARINE
CLEAR COMMUNICATION - STRESS RELIEF - HONESTY
To be blunt, sometimes you just need to say what’s on your mind or else it eats you from the inside out. This can be a scary thing to do; because we spiral unhelpful thoughts that get in our way. How will the other person react?  Am I overreacting? Will this change things for the worse? We build up and up and up and that shit is unhealthy! Aquamarine may look like a sweet and soft little stone, but damn, she is good cracking open those fears. It encourages us to open up a line of communication and tell your truth, be honest and be crystal clear about your feelings. Most of the time your fear we're much worse than the actual outcome.  You can’t expect people to read your mind so do yourself and those around you a favour and open up a little bit more. You’ll feel a little less stressed at the end of the day having told your truth.
 
 
ARAGONITE
INSIGHT - PATIENCE - DISCIPLINE
They say hindsight is 20/20, because we look back at our past decisions and think, “OMG WHAT KIND OF AN IDIOT WOULD DYE THEIR LONG ASS EMO FRINGE BLACK AND BLONDE”, but at the time you thought it would make you look badass…no? Just me? Well, ok then. As we grow we gain insight, clarity, and understanding about our situations, but sometimes even after some time away, we still don’t understand. We need a helping hand to understand why we make the decisions we made or, even harder, the decisions others have made. Aragonite, is a stone of insight, patience, and discipline, allowing us to be patient with ourselves as we look into our own selves and give insight into our decisions. This is so important because if we never look back at our old mistakes we are destined to repeat them. 
 
 
ASTRALITE
EXPRESSION - CREATIVITY - SELF AWARENESS
You don’t need to be tripping on Ayahuasca to realise that we are all apart of the universe. We are cosmic beings that have and can feel the energy around us. As humans, we often think of the universe as this ever-expanding emptiness, but the universe is all around us and it is full of energy, just like you. Tap into that cosmic energy and untether yourself from narrow ways of thinking with Astralite. The iridescent colours of this stone radiate out positive vibes that encourage self-expression and creativity. Be bold, let your star shine.
 
 
ASTROPHYLLITE
SOUL CONNECTIONS – INTIMACY - POSITIVITY
We are all looking for a love connection, but sometimes we wanna push our partners a little deeper (oh baby). Sometimes, we want to make a soul connection, to get into those hard to reach corners of each others identity and get real intimate with it. We want to open up all the way and really show off everything that we’ve been hiding. This can be a scary and even anxious experience for someone. Astrophyllite gives off a vibe of steadiness and ease when it comes to these matters. It lubricates the gears if you will.  Having this stone around the home, or perhaps the bedroom increases its intimate effects more so than anywhere else.
  
ATLANTASITE
RELAXATION - REMOVES STAGNANT ENERGY - OPENING
When I was a teen I loved Febreeze air fresheners, I KNOW I KNOW AEROSOL IS BAD! I was a kid and didn’t know better.  I would spray that stuff around my room and as a smelly teenager who couldn’t be bothered doing laundry, it was like mother f**king magic! It left like all the stagnant energy that was weighing me down was let go and I was free! Now I’ve replaced the canned good for cleansing sprays and crystals! One in particular that is great for clearing out stagnant energy is Atlantisite. Imagine it as that Febreeze can, it sucks up and LOCKS IN all those bad vibes and opens you up to new things. Make sure to charge this one on the reg though or all those negative vibes will build up…like my stinky laundry back then! 
 
 
 AURA
AMETHYST - ROSE QUARTZ - FLAME - RAINBOW - COBALT
OOOOooooh a rainbow! God do we ever love pretty colours! Man has evolved to be attracted to all the wonderful colours we can see! We love them so much that we created something called Aura; which is a man-made iridescent film that makes a stone shinier and rainbowy. Here at C&S Jayden and I  try to keep things as natural as possible (wink wink), but somethings are just too pretty to say no to!
 
 
AVENTURINE - BLUE
CALM - MOOD SWINGS - COMMUNICATING FEELINGS
We have all been there, your day is like a car crash you can’t look away from. Nothing seems to be going your way and people are getting on every last nerve you possible have when finally try to let someone know how you’re feeling and you come off a little bit short. They utter those five words you should never utter to anyone, “You need to calm down.” All of a sudden you’ve gone from annoyed to full-blown Winifred Sanderson yelling, “I AM CALM!” Blue Aventurine is like a little ice cube that gives off cooling energy. It keeps our moods in balance and also allows up to more clearly communicate our feelings in an appropriate way instead of erupting on someone who is just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
 
 
AVENTURINE - GREY
BALANCE - LEADERSHIP - DELEGATION
Do you know what makes a good leader? Someone who can look at all the perspectives and opinions being thrown towards them and channel it into something progressive and forward-thinking.  Someone who can find a balance between being friendly and outgoing and being the boss. Someone who can make others feel like they contribute to the overall success of a project. If you’re anything like me, you could use a revitalisation of my leadership skills. Here’s where Grey Aventurine comes in handy.  This stone harmoniously channels your natural leadership abilities and brings them to the surface, encouraging a more confident and balanced version of you. Think of it like You 2.0 with all the new handy features of getting sh*t done! Let go of your inner procrastinator and go get em boss! 
 
AVENTURINE - ORANGE
ENCOURAGEMENT - PERSEVERANCE - SELF-WORTH
Orange Aventurine is considered a stone of encouragement, perseverance, self-worth and a manifestor of exciting new possibilities. In today’s day and age, we are constantly feeling comparisonitis (TM pending, jk) and we feel like we tell ourselves we will never look like A, we will never have as nice of a home as B, we will never travel as much as C, etc. What’s happening here is your inner critic screaming at you from inside. Think of Orange Aventurine as your own personal propaganda machine… it quiets your own critical and judgemental inner voice and feeds you positive and encouraging vibes to boost your self-worth. Use Orange Aventurine to encourage perseverance, and positive self-talk, essentially quieting that critic.  
 
 
AVENTURINE - PEACH
SHYNESS - CREATIVITY - ANXIETY
When I think about peaches I think about warm summer days, sweetness and juice dripping down my chin; I am sitting by the beach with friends or family and soaking up the sun. I am relaxed, happy and my world is colourful. Aventurine alleviates stress and promotes a serene attitude. In cases of sleep disturbances, it helps to clear the thoughts and has a calming effect letting your worried mind rest for a while. Peach Aventurine, in particular, helps us feel that summery comfortability and relaxed state of mind allowing us to let those creative JUICES (see what I did there…peach, peach juice) flowing without a worry of how it will be received. Do yourself a favour and relax into that peachy summer feeling. 
 
 
AVENTURINE - PINK
PLAYFULNESS - YOUTHFUL ROMANCE - FRIENDSHIP

Awe youth, remember when you felt like you could conquer the world? That every day was a new adventure and you could be anything you wanted to be? You felt every emotion so strongly; you loved and laughed and threw tantrums and just felt everything! Unfortunately, you grew up and the world beat you down. OR SO YOU THOUGHT! What if I could tell you that age is not just a number but a state of mind? That you can still be that playful, youthful, adventurous you? Pink Aventurine encourages your inner child to come out and take a risk and open yourself up to feeling your emotions again. Screw controlling them to be socially acceptable, feel them all and feel them strongly!

 

 
AVENTURINE - RED & GREEN
CREATIVITY - CONFIDENCE - SUCCESS
The key to success? Not being so damn stressed about being successful. Attitude is everything darling, and if you keep running around like a chicken with your head cut off you’ll never slow down to realise that you are successful. Aventurine alleviates stress and promotes a serene attitude. In cases of sleep disturbances, it helps to clear the thoughts and has a calming effect letting your worried mind rest for a while. It is also known to attract abundance and bring luck to its wearer. You work hard enough, why not calm down, take a breath, vibe out and let lady luck come to you.
  
AVENTURINE - YELLOW
DECISIVENESS - BALANCE - FOCUS
Was it a blue and black dress or a white and gold dress? The WORLD was divided and couldn’t decide. It was probably the most ridiculous thing I had ever seen. However, it demonstrated so clearly that humans suck at making up their minds; we toss and turn between decisions and weigh up the pros and cons. We even do the pros and cons of relationships! We have such a hard time deciding. Yellow Aventurine is great for opening and balancing that gut feeling.  Those who are oversensitive or indecisive will totes benefit from Yellow Aventurine's reassuring and balancing energies. Working with Yellow Aventurine can also help focus intentions for manifesting a sense of ease in being yourself and the decisions that you have chosen. So calm down, trust your gut and feel assured in your choices (it was blue and black btw). 
 
  
 
AZURITE & MALACHITE
INSIGHT - INTELLECTUALISM - CREATIVITY
Anyone who knows anything about Crystal & Stone and me knows that I lovvvvvve me some Malachite. I mean know doesn’t love that confidence boost to our attitude and that lovely negativity energy repellent, well when you mix these two lovely stones you get a concoction of power,  creativity, and intellectualism. Azurite & Malachite gives your brain power an extra battery boost. This stone combo is perfect for someone who uses their mental capacity for work or creativity; whether that be in the study, engineering, education, medical, writing, or any art form. Imagine it is kinda like Cerebro to Dr. X. It just helps amplify the mental power you already have!
   
BLACK AGATE
PROTECTION - CALM - HOME STRESS
Sometimes work-life is stressful, you can’t wait to get home to unwind and chill…Unfortunately, when you get home there is cleaning to do, dinner to make, groceries to buy, plants to water and the baby needs to be changed and fed, the kids need help with homework, that  is when they aren’t doing their like 50 extracurricular activities (thankfully pugs don’t do homework or have an extracurricular, just sayin’). Sometimes you need a safe space from your safe space! Black Agate is here to help! The energy associated with Black Agate is that of calming protection, specifically for the home and home stress. It is popular to keep this near the centre of the home where the family meets most often.
 
 
BLACK QUARTZ
BALANCE - HARMONISING - COURAGE
You’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times, “life is all about balance”. Well, that’s easy to say, but between work, social life, home life, we are pulled in a thousand directions at any given moment.  Sometimes I feel like my “tree pose” is more of a “tree in hurricane season”; completely bent out of shape. That’s why having Black Quartz around the home is sooooo good. It harmonises your chakras and helps you balance out the important things in life. Stop swaying in the wind and stand tall like the giant ass beautiful tree you are.
 
  
 
BLACK SULEMANI AGATE
PROTECTION - TOUGH-LOVE - INNER STRENGTH
If working with children has taught me anything, it is that children have #nofilter and the words that come out of their mouths is the truth; the good, the bad and the ugly. I like to use it as my guiding compass for whether or not a kid likes me and if I should make a change. Here are some examples: “I like walking with you because you listen to me when we walk and talk, that makes me happy.” “You are a little crazy, but that’s what makes you fun.” “I wish you were my dad.” These tell me I am a good listener, kind, but a little kooky. I also get,  “You smell like coffee,” and “I can see your belly button through your buttons, it is very hairy”. Those little voices remind me that I may be a pretty cool dude, but there is always room for improvement. In the crystal world, the stone that will provide you with that little voice inside that will give you some tough love and challenge you to improve is Black Sulemani Agate. This wonderful stone calls on us to give ourselves a  kick in the ass and… get a mint, or wear better fitting shirts.
 
  
BLOOD STONE
REPARATION - VITALITY - HEALING
Chumba Wumba said it best, “I get knocked down, but  I get up again, you’re never gonna keep me down”. They probably had their pockets full of Blood Stone cause that’s what this bad boy does. Like that banging playlist you listen to during your sweat sesh, it gets you pumped up and back in the game. Especially good for repairing any injuries and relieving muscle soreness after a big workout. Get your BLOOD pumping and so you can get back to those goals.  
 
BLUE CHALCEDONY
WORRY - ANXIETY - PANIC
Close your eyes and imagine…wait, don’t close your eyes, how will you read this otherwise…Imagine you’re sitting on a dock on the edge of a lake. The lake is in the mountains, it is early morning and the sun has just risen above the peaks. The trees surrounding you glisten with dew in the morning light. The crystal water below you is shallow and still. There is not a ripple along its reflective surface. You a deep breath in through your nose and feel the clean crisp air fill your lungs. You are calm, you are at peace and you are grounded. I am sorry to say that you are probably not actually at that lovely mountain lake right now, you’re probably at the office, buying crystals when you should be working or on the busy train with your phone in your hand. Not so serene, but there is a stone that encourages that type of serenity. Blue Chalcedony is a stone of serenity and peace. It is fantastic for working with worry, anxiety and panic attacks. It reminds me of the blue waters of that mountain lake and brings me down whenever I am feeling elevated or overwhelmed. 
 
 
BLUE KYANITE
CALM - PERSEVERANCE - LOGIC
The worst thing…yes, THE WORST, is when you get in a disagreement with someone and you lose your cool and don’t get across what you are trying to say. ESPECIALLY, when you think of something witty to snap back with later on. Once I even got in an argument with a coworker (at an especially vulnerable time) and had to force myself to not cry in front of them. Like serious WTF, pull yourself together, calm down and think logically. Thank god/goddess (you do you boo, we don’t judge) that we found Kyanite. It calms down those angry, stressful, illogical emotions and takes your mind one step back.  Allows you to look at a situation from the outside and then form an opinion. Great for allowing yourself to take criticism as constructive feedback and foster a growth mindset instead of allowing it to weigh you down.
 
 
BLUE LACE AGATE
CALM - MEDITATION - UNDERSTANDING
Sometimes we look at people and think, What the F were they thinking? Why would they do/say that? What climbed up their ass and died? Yes, we have all looked at someone that way (especially Susan, goddamn Susan). Sometimes it feels like there is a wall between you and them and all types of communication and understanding just runs into it. Thank goddess for Blue Lace Agate; the stone of meditation and understanding. This stone helps you keep your cool when communicating with those who frustrate you and is a useful mediator allowing you to relate and see others’ point of view. Great for rebuilding relationships, especially in the workplace!
  
 
 BLUE MAGNESITE
RELAXATION - HONESTY - TOLERANCE
If I’m being honest, like completely honest, I cannot STAND slow walkers walking in front of me, especially in a shopping center.  Like BEEP BEEP MOFO, this is a mall, not a sightseeing tour, I wanna get in and out as fast as possible. Thankfully,  with some help from Blue Magnesite, I have learned to take a deep breaths, relax and build up a little tolerance to things that annoy me. Blue Magnesite is great for that,  allowing you to step back take a look at the whole scene honestly and maybe build up some empathy and understanding (and in my case cool my jets a little bit haha)!
   
 
BLUE ONYX
LEARNING - HEALS PAST WOUNDS - LETTING GO OF GRUDGES
Most of us have seen the infamously scary movie “The Grudge” or “Ju-On” and I even hear it is getting a reboot. In that movie, the spirits of the house just COULD NOT GET OVER ANYTHING. Their grudge ended up consuming not only them but anyone who entered the house, ever; and they always met terribly graphic or horrendous ends. Although we know this is just a movie, grudges totally act this way, they consume you until you end up destroying everything you hold dear. Blue Onyx helps you calm your farm and let go of past wounds. It helps build a bridge between the past and your present and pries your fingers off of those grudges. Basically it helps you go from “uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh” (insert creepy grudge sound) to “ahhhh” (relaxed sigh).  
 
BOTSWANA AGATE
GRIEVING - PANIC ATTACKS - CALM
So funny story, I’ve always been a bubbly outgoing person, but once in a blue moon, I have experienced an overwhelming feeling we call a panic attack. Alright, so as most of you know, I’m also a teacher and this year I  started teaching music,  part of that job is organising whole school songs where I stand at the front and lead the school in a new rehearsed song every month (even though I struggle to sing confidently). Well, first one ever, I felt ready to do it, (nervous, but ready). Well, when it came time to sing, none of the students sang out…not a single one. I had to sing in front of the whole school, staff and community to remind the students of the words and only about halfway through did some of the students join in. Did my voice crack? YEP! Was I off-key? YEPPERS! Would I rather have just passed out on the floor? YOU BETCHA! I left the stage and shook for an hour. I didn’t think I would ever be able to do it again. Thankfully, I grabbed for a couple of stones that really helped me get through the next couple of assemblies. One of these stones was Botswana Agate. It is fantastic at calming down the nervous system when it is in high alert and cooling your vibe down to manageable levels. When I added it to my rotation of stones I felt like I was back in charge of my own feelings; like I was switched on in the control room. You’ll be happy to know all my student’s singing has improved and their assemblies are beautiful and I stand proud in the front guiding them (and yes I still carry my Botswana Agate on me each assembly day).
  
 
BOTSWANA AGATE - PINK
SOOTHING TRANSITIONS - POSITIVITY - CHANGE
We all hear people say change is good. Change brings progress and growth. I 100% agree with this statement, I feel like once you stop changing, you start growing stagnant and dying! Some changes are easy, like switching to Coconut Oil hair conditioner from regular conditioner…OMG MY HAIR IS LIKE A LUSCIOUS GOD *cough*…Anywho, other changes are harder, like moving, starting a new job, learning a new skill or going through a breakup. You know you’re going to be better in the end, but it is just so darn hard!Thankfully, there is a stone to help you through these transitional periods. Pink Botswana Agate helps alleviate that terrifying anxious feeling of not knowing what to do and how to cope with the change. Imagine it like a safety line when you’re rocking climbing. It won’t get you there…you have to do it, but it’ll put your mind at rest knowing you won’t fall on your ass. 
  
 
BRONZITE
COURTESY - REPEL NEGATIVITY - INSPIRATION
When we were looking for new stones this is one that I found very interesting, especially when I talked to others about what it is known for. Bronzite is the stone of courtesy, politeness, and inspiration. It is a stone that is especially handy to have in stores or around people who work in customer service in order to repel as much negative customer bull shite as possible. Honestly, guys are nicer to retail staff (or they may just chuck their hunk of Bronzite at your head). This stone is also popular for use at parties or when unwelcome guests are coming to stay…I should get one for Susan in HR. GODDAMNIT SUSAN.
 
 
CALCITE - BLUE
INSPIRATION - INTUITION - CREATIVE ENERGY
Audrey Hepburn and Richard Avedon, Marilyn Monroe and Andy Warhol, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, The Musical Muses and Hercules; we all need a muse to get our creative energies flowing. Never fear, your own personal muse has arrived; give a warm welcome to Blue Calcite. Known for providing epiphanies (or moments of realisation) that ignite creative thinking and manifestation energy. It is also known for its communicative properties allowing you to share your brand-spankin' new ideas more readily.
 
 
CALCITE -  COBALTO 
EMOTIONAL HEALING - AMPLIFIER - LOVE 
I have this one cousin that gives the best hugs (if anyone in my family is reading this they ALL know who she is). Cobalto Calcite is like that amazing hug that you didn’t know you needed until you get it and you’re all like, OH MY GOD, I felt that in my soul. It is known for its emotional healing qualities, amplifying feelings of love and healing specifically in romantic relationships. It is a stone that reminds us that even when we are going through tough times and we put on our big boy/girl pants and try to act like we have everything  under control, those who love us are never too far away and that may be all you need to get through this is some emotional support…and a really killer hug. 
 
 
CALCITE - GREEN
FORGIVENESS - RELAXATION - HEART OPENING
Our hearts are funny little things, they act like that one friend who’s had one too many tequila shots. One second they are telling literally everyone that she “loves them soooo much”. Next, she starts crying saying she’ll, “never find anyone” like her ex and just when you think the night is over you spot her trying to get in a fight with a bouncer. Needless to say, our hearts are considered our emotional centre for a reason, they feel everything intensely. Green Calcite is one of those stones that act as a hot iron to our emotional wrinkles, smoothing everything out so our hearts aren’t acting like that friend. It opens us up to giving and receiving forgiveness as well as relaxing the heart.
 
  
CALCITE - HONEY
RESPONSIBILITY - LEADERSHIP - RESILIENCE
WHO RUN THE WORLD? YOU! Take your leadership skills to the next level with Honey Calcite. I like to imagine it as the parachute of the crystal world, it encourages us to take a leap of faith and believe in our ability to push forward and take charge of our life. The reason I say parachute is because if you end up failing, it will deploy and catch you before you go splat! Encouraging resiliency and as the Aussies say encourages you to “have a go”! Having Honey Calcite around you encourage that self-advocacy and go-getter attitude that will awaken your inner leadership qualities!
 
 
CALCITE - MANGANO
HEALING - LOVE - TRANQUILITY
Sometimes fear stops us from moving on and experiencing life. Fear of the unknown, fear of getting hurt again, fear of eating delicious street food in Bali and getting gastro (again). It can seem impossible to unlock those chains of fear. The key can be Mango Calcite, it gives off a supportive and loving vibe that encourages you to try new things. Keep it near and dear to your heart and let that inner adventurer out again!
 
  
CALCITE - ORANGE
ACTIVITY - PLAYFULNESS - INNOVATION
Sports Go Sports!? Organised sport has never been our forte, but just cause you can’t throw a ball, or kick a ball, or catch a ball (cue daddy issues) doesn’t mean you can’t live your best (active) life! Activity is about getting up and out of the house, being playful and being grateful for the wonderful bodies we have that allow us to do whatever we consider activity to be. For me, that’s yoga and walking the pugs, for others that’s playing a footy match on the weekend, other’s its just getting out of the house at all. No matter what your active looks like, it’s a step in a healthy direction. Orange Calcite is a stone that can only be described as the Gatorade of the crystal world. Having it in your space empowers that playful spirit, encourages activity and discourages laziness (just remember your Netflix watch history doesn’t lie).
  
 
CALCITE - YELLOW
MOTIVATION - DRIVE - REMOVES SELF DOUBT
You know that feeling when you sleep in and you wake up to the sun peeking in through your windows. You take a big stretch and feel so well rested. That first sip of coffee touches your soul and somehow everything seems to just be right with the world. Whenever you take a step it feels like you’re walking on sunshine? Have you ever felt that? No? If you haven’t or would like to feel that more often than you need to get yourself some Yellow Calcite. This stone acts like a Mr. Miyagi for your vibes and waxes them on and off until they are shining and new. Bad vibes will reflect off of you, removing the feeling of self-doubt and increases your drive and motivation, removing obstacles out of your way. Walk confidently on that sunshine pathway! 
  
  
CARNELIAN
PASSION - SEXUALITY - CREATIVITY
Passion comes in many forms: passionate for the arts, passionate for athletics, passionate sex, (in my case an unbridled passion for eating pizza). Carnelian supports your passionate endeavours by assisting you to overcome uncomfortable circumstances with calm deliberation. It gives vitality and mental strength and increases motivation. Furthermore it has the reputation to attract financial wealth. It takes money, sex and rock and roll to a whole other level!
   
 
CELESTITE
HEALING - UPLIFTING - FOSTERS CONNECTIONS
You know that feeling when you look at photos of crystal blue waters surrounding some far off tropical island and your mind just starts to calm down and wander off into a dream world. Celestite offers a similar VIP pass to paradise. It radiates a soft, positive energy in all directions that may be used to cleanse the surrounding environment or heal your emotional negativity. It is beneficial for calming fears or stilling a chaotic mind.  Personally,  we find it helps keep the mind clear and smooth for transitioning from work to meditation. It is a beautiful crystal that promotes purity of heart, hope, and good fortune. So take your time and gaze into this beautiful crystal blue gem and imagine your own personal paradise.
 
 
CHALKANITE
COMMUNITY - CONNECTION - MEDITATION 
So  I was listening to one of my abs fav podcasts and it was talking about the science of happiness. After several studies, they found one of the major contributing factors to both happiness and lifespan was a community. It was something that really resonated with me because when you feel like you are a part of something you feel better about yourself, you feel like you are contributing and you feel, well happy! Chalkanite is a stone that reminds me of happiness and community, it is beautiful but fragile. The energy of this stone gives off a feeling of connection and intrigue to those who have it in their homes. 
   
 
CHIASTOLITE (THE FOUR POINT STONE)
PROTECTION - NEW ENERGY - PROBLEM-SOLVING
Four is such an epic number, I mean really think about it for a minute. Sex and City (Samantha, Miranda, Charlotte and Carrie), The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion), The Golden Girls (Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sophie), Queer Eye (Karamo, JVN, Tan and Bobby…let’s be honest now, Antoni does like nothing) and most importantly the elements (Air, Earth, Fire and Water). Chiastolite uses the four points of the elemental wheel to bring in some epic new ideas and energy, allows us to problem solve and also protects us in our endeavours. 
  
CHRYSOBERYL
PEACE - PERSPECTIVE - KEEPS YA EGO IN CHECK
Chrysoberyl is a great stone in assisting us in gaining a higher perspective in the midst of emotional situations. It helps you to be gentle to yourself, through positive self-talk and creating a kinder space for yourself and others. It is helpful in manifesting peace around you by givin’ off all dem good vibes. Often times when we are feeling unsettled our ego takes over. We lose the ability to take responsibility for our actions and decisions and instead throw blame at others. Chrysoberyl keeps that ego in its place, telling it to quiet down so you can think rationally. This stone is a great stone for someone going through a break-up or experiencing some sort of rejection as it allows you to take a step back and see the big picture  (and how you’ll make it through eventually)  instead of focussing on blame, shame, and revenge, oh my! 
 
CHRYSOCOLLA
EXPRESSION - EMOTIONAL LEARNING - WISDOM
We live in an era that is just realising that emotions are normal, human and wonderful. However, it is still ingrained in society and socialisation that emotions like fear, sadness, and anger have no place anywhere. Ask yourself this; what is your first reaction when you see a kid crying over losing something or dropping its food. Most of us would react to the tears as “Awe, it’s not that bad, you’re alright, etc.” What did we just do in this situation? We told the kid they shouldn’t feel that way, it’s not a big deal and hides your tears…in a sweet voice. The problem is we think we are helping because that is how we were taught. Meet your new emotional coach, Chrysocolla, is a stone of emotional learning and expression this stone will allow us to tap into our own emotions, find deeper understanding and emphasise with others when they feel these emotions. It allows us to move past “get over it” and into an era of “I understand”.
 
 
CHRYSOPRASE
JOY – PEACE - ABUNDANCE
Chrysoprase is all about joy.  It wants you to smile honey and will make sure that obstacles standing in your way are less like hurtles and more like speed bumps. This stone encourages you to notice the little moments around you that make life so much more abundant than you realise. Maybe a good book, a great cup of tea, a song that you feel in your whoooooole body;  you may not have noticed just how these things made you feel until you carry around Chrysoprase around wit you! When we notice the little things around us that make us happy they tend to quell that feeling of needing MORE MORE MORE and just welcome the peace of, “this is good”.
 
 
CHRYSOPRASE – LEMON
ACTIVITY – EXPRESSION - OPTIMISM
EXPRESS YOURSELF! In a world so bogged down with depressing news, sad songs, and wearing black on black on black I feel like we are missing our on the sunshine all around us! It’s time to take action and take off those gorgeous designer sunnies and allow yourself to just bask in the sun. Lemon Chrysoprase wants the same thing for you. It encourages an optimistic attitude towards activity and expression. It’s that friend you have that always suggests going to the beach or having a picnic or playing at a water park! This stone let’s that inner happiness shine through!
   
CINNABAR PERIDOTITE
PERSUASION - BUSINESS SUCCESS - MANIFESTATION
Trying to persuade people to do something or buy something can be extremely difficult. Like, the first thing that comes to mind is those people that stand in the middle of shopping centre halls trying to convince you their gas provider will give you a better deal than the one you are currently with, even if you’re with the same one. Every time I see them I’m like, “bye gurl,” avert my eyes, walk around as far as possible and when in the most dire of circumstances and they won’t take no for an answer I pretend to be a backpacker (the Canadian accent has gotten me out of more troublesome situations than I care to admit). If you are one of these people, or perhaps work in business OR have your own business and need to convince people to choose you, well you need some Cinnabar Peridotite. This stone is remarkable for giving off a vibe of convincing and persuasion opening the door for you to manifest your biggest dreams.
 
 
CITRINE
SUCCESS - COMMUNICATION - AIDS DIGESTION
So you wanna hot body? You wanna get money? Well, get Citrine b**ch! Citrine is the ‘stone of success’! Known for opening up communication between people in both the home and the workplace and attracting abundance, money, and stability; this stone is like the CEO of crystals. On top of attracting them dolla dolla bills y’all, citrine’s energy has been known to stimulate metabolism and aid in digestion. Take your drive, passion and energy and slay the day with this beautiful golden orange stone.
 
 
CLEAR QUARTZ
AWARENESS - AMPLIFICATION - CLARITY
Plugin the amp for your spiritual self! Clear Quartz cleanses negative energy like a pressure washer to your soul and amplifies feelings of peace and positive energy. Having this stone on your body or around your space increases energy, productivity, and feelings of accomplishment. Shine bright like the diamond you truly are and clear some room for Clear Quartz. 
 
 
CORAL
WISDOM – HARMONY - CONNECTION TO THE SEA
Isak Dinesen, “The cure for everything is salt water, sweat, tears or the sea”, which is not only my favourite quote but also the first thing that came to mind when I held a piece of coral. Coral carries with it ancient wisdom of intricate harmony and unity between all living things. It understands that it is the bedrock of life underwater and builds an ecosystem-based around itself.  Holding Coral re centres the wearer to focus on the home and creating that beautiful harmonious ecosystem around themselves. Others are attracted to those with inner harmony and having Coral around helps remind us of this. As soon as Jayden placed one in my hand I envisioned the sea, so if you’re traveling and need to take a bit of home with you, this stone is for you as well. 
  
 
CRAZY LACE AGATE
OPTIMISM - CREATIVITY - ENERGY
We live in a world ruled by deadlines and to-do lists and efficient productivity.  This can be a total drag  on your  left side of your brain, yes you heard me! All these lists and deadlines are  killing  our creativity and critical thinking skills. It’s time to take the proverbial bra off at the end of the day and let your creative juices flow! Crazy Lace Agate is  a stone that encourages that stagnant creative energy to burst  out of you like a Pollack painting. It encourages you to write, sing, dance, paint, take a friend that pottery class  (yes, you know I wanted to go, thanks for the  invite…RUDE). Get out there and get crazy with Crazy Lace Agate.
 
 
DUMORTIERITE
BELIEF IN SELF - MENTAL CAPACITY - PATIENCE
It’s DUmortierite, not DumortierITE. We’ve compared this stone to the infamous and wonderful wizard, Dumbledore because of 1. One of you misread it and 2. This stone increases your patience, mental capacity and believe in yourself, like the way he was patient and believed in Harry’s abilities. To be honest, we think this stone is downright magical. Especially useful for people in the teaching profession or who are passing on knowledge to others, perhaps in a workshop, a studio or evening class. 
 
 
EMERALD
INSPIRATION - FRESHNESS - PATIENCE
So after working with Emerald, I had a hard time putting into words how It made me feel. So I did a little bit of soul searching, it was less of a  feeling and more of an experience. It took me a day, but I figured out what it reminded me of. Do you have Irish Spring Shampoo here in Australia? It is this fresh soap that smelled like cold fresh air and nature and just was always a pick meep in the morning! That is what Emerald reminded me of, that showered and feeling a fresh feeling. It also helps that Emeralds are stones associated with the heart-opening us up to inspiration and creativity. This is a great stone to keep on your body if you are feeling kind of down in the dumps or you’ve hit a rut lately. Personally, I’ve added it to my Rolodex of crystals that I choose to carry with me because of that revitalising effect that it has on me and those around me!
 
 
EPIDOTE IN PREHNITE
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE - HEALING OF TRAUMA - SPIRITUAL GROWTH
Often times we associate the colour pink with feelings of love, but Prehnite and Epidote crystals often grow beautifully together and because of this, we feel that they tend to give off a feeling of love. Working together they promote unconditional love and stimulates spiritual growth. It is also used to help someone injured by either physical or mental trauma. Sometimes the most unlikely and unique couples are the most striking and beautiful together. 
 
 
FADEN QUARTZ
INTENTION - MEDITATION - CHANGE
Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma chameleon! This stone is the chameleon of our collection. It is what can be described as a programmable stone. By meditating with it, or by having it around when you journal, mood board, doodle, etc. it picks up on your intention and desires. Then you can carry it around with you acting like a little magnet for all the energies you feel like attracting. I must remind you though with this one the importance of cleansing. Yes, cleansing is not just for your beautiful face, you must also cleanse your crystals and this one will continue to carry your intended energy until cleansed, then it can use its little shape-shifting trick to carry a new intention that you give it. Talk about adaptable!
     
FIRE AGATE
LIBIDO - PROTECTION - ENERGY
Time to light a fire in the bedroom baby! Fire Agate is like a boom boom pow for your boudoir! This stone is all about getting those hormones going so whether you are in a  stagnant slump, or you just want a really good hum— well you get what I mean; this stone is what you need. It does it all; it boosts your energy, livens up the libido and has the added perk of being a protection stone which, let’s be honest, these days with tinder, Grindr, POF,  etc, etc you could use as much protection as you can get both in sexual and energetically, latex or otherwise.

  

 
FUSHITE
ENCOURAGEMENT – PROTECTION - REVITALISATION
Sometimes we need a little bit of a push to take that next step in our personal journeys. You know who you are, that comfortability bubble is starting to feel a little restrictive and you want to fly closer to the sun and try new things, but you’re scared of getting burned. Worry not Icarus, your day in the sunshine won’t end with a terrible tumble; not with Fushite around.  A protective stone specifically for anyone looking to try new things. This stone revitalises our energy and encourages us to go out and snatch opportunities as they come flyin’ past!
 
 
FLUORITE
FOCUS - CLARITY - POSITIVITY
Nowadays we are told we need to focus on so many things. Focus on what brings you joy (looking at you Marie Kondo). Focus on your health. Focus on your job or studies. Focus on staying positive. Eventually, we become so focused on being focussed we can’t focus properly on anything! Let me introduce you to my good friend Fluorite. Fluorite has been known to help boost positive thoughts, clear the mind and increase focus. Not to mention it’s beautiful rainbowy hues are absolutely stunning to behold.
 
 
GARNET
MOTIVATION - SEXUAL ENERGY - PASSION
The candles are lit, roses petals laid out, and Pony by Ginuwine is playing in the background. Time to get down…with Garnet. The stone is notorious for increasing will-power and improves vitality (wink wink). It supports you in staying focused and motivated (oh baby). Furthermore it increases the libido and boosts passion in love relationships (oooh that’s the spot). Having Garnet around the bedroom is like having a little blue pill, (or rather red stone) but for your energies. Let’s get it on with Garnet.
   
GOLDEN QUARTZ
HEALING - HIGH VIBES - AMPLIFICATION
We all have that one cousin that is just, well, the cool cousin. If you can’t think of who it is, it’s you MAZEL TOV for you! The cool cousin is the golden child, they get away with things you wouldn’t dream of doing at family functions, they are usually good looking, they are always the most fun and they are also your cousin so you love them to pieces even though you can be mad jealous of them from time to time. Well, just like we have our golden child/cool cousins, so does Clear Quartz. Its called  Golden Quartz and it’s here to get the party started, it has shimmering golden hues throughout it’s structure giving it a yellowish hue. It is remarkably good for healing, amplification of intentions and elevating your vibes in times when you need that added boost. Kinda like that cool cousin always has your back when you need them most. (P.S. Miss you cuz, love you lots.)
 
 
GOLDSTONE - BLUE
SELF ACCEPTANCE - EMPATHY - HEALING
You know what is 100%  beautiful, 100% dazzling and 100% man-made? You are darling…you and Goldstone. Goldstone is a beautiful sparkly stone filled with metal alloy the shimmer in the light like a mother effin disco ball you can hold in your hand! Blue Goldstone is all about empathy for yourself and for others. In particularly yourself; we often tend to be our own worst enemy.

This is where  Blue Goldstone comes in, it reminds you to be kind, kind, kind to yourself and forgive,  forgive, forgive yourself.

You know what is 100%  beautiful, 100% dazzling and 100% man-made? You are darling…you and Goldstone. Goldstone is a beautiful sparkly stone filled with metal alloy the shimmer in the light like a mother effin disco ball you can hold in your hand!  YOU  CAN DO IT! YOU’VE GOT THIS!

GOLDSTONE - GREEN
INGENUITY - DRIVE - LUCK
You know what is 100%  beautiful, 100% dazzling and 100% man-made? You are darling…you and Goldstone. Goldstone is a beautiful sparkly stone filled with metal alloy the shimmer in the light like a mother effin disco ball you can hold in your hand!

Green Goldstone encourages you to work harder, while at the some time giving your vibes a little lucky boost.  It encourages us to be clever and cunning with our decisions and think outside the box in order to accomplish a task! 
 
 
 GREEN MAGNESITE
RELAXATION - LUCK - PATIENCE
The wisest people I’ve ever met have all told me the same advice. “Have you ever tried talking less?” Well yes, but that’s beside the point! They have all told me that patience is the greatest teacher of all. To which I rolled my eyes cause, ain't nobody got time for that, I’m more of an Ariana Grande type thinker, “I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it”. I mean why not treat myself whenever I want? But, sometimes it’s more rewarding to play the long game. To work hard, save up and reap the benefits in mass. If you’re like me and need a little patience boost to check out Green Magnesite, with the added bonus of relaxing your viewpoints  GM gives out vibes that are all patience and all luck. So while keeping on that grind keep Green Magnesite nearby. 
   
GREY BANDED AGATE
BALANCE - CENTRING - GROUNDING
“YOU’RE GROUNDED,” my parents would shout at me when I was younger after I had done something naughty. I used to hate it, I would sit in my room and think about what I had done or sit on my bed and do some deep breathing to calm myself down. Who would have thought 2 decades later, this is how I  spend my free time. Being grounded is like totally the new focussed. You bring yourself back down to what is important in the present, how is your body and mind feeling at this exact moment and what can you do to balance out those feelings. If you find grounding yourself difficult, might I  recommend Grey Banded Agate. The energy that this stone gives off is that of chilling the eff down, finding your centre and grounding yourself. Don’t wait to get into trouble to get grounded, GROUND YOURSELF!
 
 
HEMATITE
GROUNDING - BALANCE - COURAGE
It’s time to attract things that are good for you and repel all that negativity. What better to attract and repel than our favourite magnetic stone, Hematite. Hematite is a grounding stone that gives protection and balance. It assists to reveal hidden aspirations and to achieve them with insistence. In addition, it enhances memory and supports to clear the thoughts. Walkout into the world like it's a catwalk for your own personal journey and watch as Hematite protects you from the haters and attracts all that success!
 
IOLITE
CONFLICT RESOLUTION - UNDERSTANDING - EMOTIONS
I am a Cancerian, which means that basically I am a slave to my emotions. Do you ever see those tire swings that sing in any direction? That’s what my emotional mood swings are like. One second I am helping a friend through a crisis, rubbing their back (or holding back their hair, depending on the amount of champagne involved) and the next I am crying my own eyes out because I just get overwhelmed sometimes that there is so much hatred and pain in the world. Next, I’m giggling about a funny corgi bum meme I saw and then I’ll flip to screaming that no one is listening to what I have to say. I’ve come to understand my emotional triggers and what will set off me off and THANKFULLY FOR EVERYONE, my mood swings are limited. Now, you may not be as bad as I have been in the past, but if you feel the swing approach, reach for your piece of Iolite. Known for its ability to open up your understanding of your own emotions. This will allow you the opportunity to learn and adapt, making conflict resolution a bazillion times easier and relationships a lot smoother.
 
 
JADE - GREEN
HARMONY - BALANCE - GOOD LUCK
When I was traveling through China I fell in love with Jade. I saw it pretty much everywhere; people doing tai chi in the park wore it, shop keepers and waiters wore it as they served up delicious food and I even caught a glimpse of a jade bracelet on the lovely woman explaining a traditional tea ceremony to me. It was hard to miss this green beauty! So naturally, I grabbed myself some! It wasn’t until I got back home that I found out what Jade was really all about. It is a gentle stone that helps the energies of harmony, balance and good luck flow, which makes sense why so many people wore it! I wore my jade bracelet for almost a year and even brought it with me to Australia... and I mean if you’ve read our about us blog post, it doesn’t get luckier than that! Everyone is looking for balance, and good luck, why not try out some Jade.
  
JADE - GREY/BLUE
LONGEVITY - SERENITY - PEACE
When I think of Longevity I think of meditating, then I think of monks, then I think of Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One in Dr. Strange, then I think of how amazing  T-Swizzle was in The Chronicles  of Narnia and how that book has really stood the test of time aaaaaand we are back to longevity. My brain can be exhausting sometimes! But in all seriousness if we are going to live longer we  will need to find peace and serenity in order to focus on what matters and although she is amazing Tilda’s IMDB page isn’t really what I should be focussing on. Grey Blue Jade sends out lovely vibes that calm down the body and mind, assisting with  sleep and meditation and focus  on overall health! 
 
 
JADE - LEMON
MOOD SWINGS - ENHANCES DREAMING - LUCK
What’s it like to live in today’s world? Well, there are a lot of mood swings. THE WORLD IS BURNING, Omg look at this cute pug video on Instagram. THE BEES ARE DYING, you got engaged, that’s fantastic news! MICROPLASTIC IS CHOKING MARINE WILDLIFE, your crystal business is doing well, yay! It’s a lot of ups and downs. Now I’m not saying Crystals are going to save the world, but we CANNOT take any action if we are constantly flipping between wanting to cry in the shower to Patrick Watson songs on repeat and jumping for joy through fields of flowers. Get your mood in check with some Lemon Jade. It’s yellow features enhance your control over your moods and being a form of Jade it has the added bonus of bringing luck. Lemon Jade is also known for increasing and remembering dreams.
  
 
JADE - NEPHRITE
DREAMING - MEMORY - DEALING WITH GRIEF
To quote a mangey ass cat, “Memory, all alone in the moonlight, I can dream of the old days, I was beautiful then”, yes it happened, the first and last time I will ever quote CATS (go back and imagine me in full cat makeup singing that, I dare you). Can you believe they made that into a movie, UGH…Soz, I could literally rant about CATS forever. What was saying…Oh now I remember! Memories are important, especially when you’re in the process of moving forward through grief into new and exciting things. You hold onto the strangest things and keeping those moments in your heart is important. Nephrite Jade is a stone of memory and dealing with grief it helps us move forward while still holding onto our cherished memories. This stone is great to have around the home.
 
 
JADE - ORANGE
INTERCONNECTEDNESS - ENERGY - JOY
Have you ever gone through your draws and thought, “YES THIS DOES INDEED SPARK JOY”.  If the answer to that was yes, then you and I are a lot alike. Finally, I have found, the Marie Kondo of all gemstones. YES, I mean it. Orange Jade, it promotes energy, joy, and interconnectedness to all things through harmonious living. If that doesn’t scream MK, then I  don’t know what does. WOO! I’m feeling happy just thinking about it. I mean, who doesn’t want to feel joyfully energised in harmony. 
  
 
JADE - WHITE
CALMING – ACCEPTANCE - HARMONY
Jade is all about balance. White Jade takes it a step further and finds balance and harmony by accepting the things that we cannot change. It calms the soul and body. Think of like White Jade like a deep breath during a stressful situation. At first, you feel overwhelmed and in chaos, then you take that deep breath and you can feel your heart slowing down, you can feel your body relaxing and you begin to think clearly again. White Jade has a similar effect on the body and mind, your problems may still be there, but you now have the calm and clarity to accept things how they are and choose a  path that will lead you to success.
 
 
JADE - YELLOW
OPPORTUNITY - MENTAL POWER - TOLERANCE
One of my all-time favourite memes is of that lady trying to do complex math problems in her head and she has such a lost and puzzled look on her face…you know the one, if you don’t, you should look it up. Every time I see it, it reminds me of myself trying to complete basic tasks like remembering to do things or the steps to a recipe I’ve done a million times, or ANYTHING to do with a spreadsheet. I was feeling like I was losing my mental power. Thank all that is good for Yellow Jade. This stone is a mental stimulant that encourages you to seize opportunities while they are available, increases your memory and increases your tolerances for mentally demanding activities!
 
 
JASPER - BLACK
SAFETY - FOCUS - STABILITY
Feel strong and grounded with Black Jasper nearby. This stone is all about keeping you safe and stable, it can be especially helpful for people who work in highly stressful or dangerous positions as it brings clarity and focus when needed most. Like water off a duck’s back, or a kid who took a run at a slip and slide; unsafe energy just slips right off. Like other Jaspers, this stone also invokes strength but instead finds its strength in knowing limits and when to push boundaries. 
   
JASPER - BRECCIATED
CLARITY - VITALITY - INTIMACY
All Jaspers are symbols of strength this much we know, but darling, sometimes the area that we need the most strength in can be a little, well, embarrassing. It can be a scary thing to realise that an area of weakness for us is intimacy and letting people in. We can often find that our own judgment clouded by our own insecurities. Brecciated Jasper is a stone that is known to lift that veil and allow you to see your own weaknesses clearly and allow us to approach them with a little bit more kindness. Honestly, in the times when I have addressed my own inner demons that is when I have been able to be more intimate with myself and others!
  
 
JASPER - CAMEL
STRENGTH - PERSISTENCE - FOLLOW-THROUGH
Imagine a camel, they are probably the hardiest animals in history. The trek through deserts where there is no water for ages,  almost no food, and blistering heat. When I  say trek, I don’t mean just meandering through the sand either, those animals are quick as They also can do this while carrying heavy loads and a person. Holy Camel! So named after this animal, Camel Jasper carried all these amazing qualities of a camel: strength, persistence, and follow-through. Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone and across the desert. This stone is helpful for those of us, myself included, who like to make goals, but fall short on the follow-through. Embrace your inner camel with some Camel Jasper. 
  
JASPER - CHOCOLATE
STABILITY - INTEGRITY - INTUITION
Chocolate Jasper is a stone of stability and grounding. As a Jasper, it brings us back down to earth and helps us focus on what is important, integrity, honesty and kindness. When I have worked with Chocolate Jasper it reminds me of that feeling when you first bite into a really decadent high-quality chocolate, not one of those party favourite pack kinds, but like made by a chocolatier. Your whole body stops and is focussed on this one sense for this one minute. You are flushed with unfiltered delicious feelings and honestly, I think of this as a type of meditation. Bring that feeling with you and apply it to other daily tasks. Bring that sole focus and concentration; that stable concentration to whatever you do with Chocolate Jasper. 
 
 
JASPER - DALMATIAN
STRENGTH - PLAYFULNESS - POSITIVITY
When we are kids we laugh and play and sing; our imagination allows us to be anything or imagine the possibilities our life will have. Unfortunately, real-life can suck sometimes and stuff happens that really messes us up. In order to try and protect ourselves, we build up walls and barriers around our hearts and our imaginations. We hope that these walls will act as the walls in our home and keep us safe and warm, but sadly they are more like prison walls; emotionless and cold. Dalmatian Jasper is the Miley Cyrus wrecking ball that we all need to give us the strength we need to break down these walls. It brings us back into a place of cheeky playfulness and reminds you to bring a little fun to your day.
     
JASPER - DALMATIAN - PURPLE
STRENGTH - PLAYFULNESS - POSITIVITY
When we are kids we laugh and play and sing; our imagination allows us to be anything or imagine the possibilities our life will have. Unfortunately, real life can suck  sometimes and stuff happens that really messes us up. In order to try and protect ourselves  we build up walls and barriers around our hearts and our imaginations. We hope that the these walls will act like the walls in our home and keep us safe and warm, but sadly they are more like prison walls; emotionless and cold. Dalmatian Jasper is the Miley Cyrus wrecking ball that we all need to give us the strength we need to break down these walls. It brings us back into a place of cheeky playfulness and reminds you to bring a little fun to your day. Now let’s talk Purple Dalmatian Jasper, it has the added bonus of bringing out inner child into alignment with our outer adult. Making sure the two of them can communicate a little bit better. 
 
JASPER - DRAGON
COURAGE - CONFIDENCE - STRENGTH
Dragons have long been seen as a symbol of strength, courage and power. I mean really, even in Pokemon they are one of the strongest types! Now, we all know dragons may not have flown around the world , breathing fire and guarding princesses, but they are still a universal symbol of nobility. When you need some strength and courage, why not borrow some of that mythical dragon power with Dragon Jasper. Like other Jaspers, it carries with it  energy that provides strength, but this colour stone  also brings confidence and courage to the holder.  Go forth our hero and conquer your inner worries and doubt. Become a  dragon.
 
JASPER - FANCY
CONCENTRATION - FOCUS - CALM
Sometimes, during the day,  I have so many things going on in my head that focussing on what is important is like trying to listen to your friend tell a story…at brunch…in the busiest cafe…with a screaming baby… and for some reason, they are playing heavy metal. There are just too many voices going off at once.  This is a great time to carry around Fancy Jasper, it carries with it the strength of a Jasper but is all about the strength of mind. Having this stone is helpful for concentration, focus and calming the brain. What about night time you ask? I can’t sleep cause of all the thoughts and to-do lists. Place your Fancy Jasper by your bedside to give off that focussed calm vibe. 
 
  
JASPER - GREEN
STRENGTH - INTUITION - PURIFICATION
Jasper is a stone of strength, no doubt about it! When you work with Jasper you can feel its grounding earthy qualities. For me, Green Jasper has a little bit more of an emotional strength about it; as a stone that is linked to the heart chakra it is not all that surprising I suppose! Instead of encouraging the masculine energy and raw power, this stone draws out the blurred line between masculine and feminine bringing out strong emotions. For some, this can be a little disconcerting, but once all your emotions are out in the open your heart feels so much lighter, stronger and stable and you become much more open to healing. 
    
JASPER - GREEN BANDED
NIGHTMARES - STEADY MOODS - SELF CONTROL
It always starts the same…I’m running down a long hallway, I’m running towards a bright red door at the end. The lights behind me begin to flicker and shut off. Boom off goes a light. Boom, another light. BOOM, another. The hallway turns to black faster and faster. I’m almost to the door when the voices start. The voices are whispering from the darkness, “Dylan…Dylan…DYLAN…DYLAN” I almost make it to the door when sinister voice hisses right behind my ear, “There’s no coffee left.” AND I WAKE UP IN A SWEAT! Woo, Nightmares are the worst! They take such a toll on your emotions and your sleep that they mess up your moods and you may as well say goodbye to enjoying your day, right? WRONG! Get Green Banded Jasper, not only is it beautiful, but it also steadies mood swings, suppresses nightmares and improves self-control,  like the urge to throat punch someone when you find out you actually woke up and there is no more coffee left.
 
  
JASPER - KAMBABA
STRENGTH - CALM - PROTECTION
Also known as Crocodile Jasper because 1.) Totes look very reptilian (you. know,  it resembles a crocodile scale) and 2.) Its properties are very similar to that of a crocodile. A crocodile is one of the strongest animals in the entire animal kingdom, an apex predator both in and out of the water and yet they are incredibly calm and patient waiting for the perfect moment to strike. Their bodies are covered in head to tail plated scales that protect them from injury. Use this stone to channel your inner crocodilian and unleash that calm and collected strength laying just below the water's surface. 
 
  
JASPER - LEOPARD SKIN
SELF-HEALING - STABILITY - PROTECTION
*cough insert David Attenborough voice here* Leopards are mostly solitary predators that hunt from trees, where their spotted coats allow them to blend with the leaves until they spring with a deadly pounce *cough*  Oh geez sorry about that, I’ve been bingeing way  to may Planet Earth’s on Netflix, but it does bring me to my point. Just like the leopard, Leopard Skin Jasper brings out that independent strength that lies deep inside us, for some of us we enjoy being solo, others (like me) need constant interaction. This stone is not only beautiful, but it also acts as a protective stone with self-healing properties, meaning you don’t need to rely on anyone for anything!  You’re the apex predator in this urban jungle! 
 
 
 JASPER - OCEAN
PEACE - RELIABILITY - CONNECTIVITY
Imagine the ocean for a moment, the waves are gently smashing to the shore back and forth, back and forth. The waves of the ocean are like the heartbeat of the planet; they are steady and reliable, they may quicken or slow, but they will always be there, connecting us to our planet with that soft steady rhythm. Ocean Jasper carries these qualities of peace, and reliability reminding us to be consistent and reliable with our words and actions.  
   
JASPER - PICASSO
FRIENDSHIP - GROUNDING - CALMING
This stone looks all kinds of messed up! Like seriously it looked like someone took a whole bunch of colourful play dough, rolled it out, smooshed it together and then once it hardened they broke off a piece, polished it up and voila! It’s wacky and I am living for it! Picasso Jasper so named because of the similarities in shapes and colour between Picasso’s infamous works and the stone’s natural hues. This stone encourages calm and grounded perspective to relationships making it an ideal stone for friendships! These stones are like that  BEST FRIENDS 4EVA broken heart necklace you shared with your childhood BFF!
   
JASPER - PICTURE
CONNECTION TO EARTH - ALLEVIATE FEAR - HEALING
So like, you know when you are a kid and you read stories about witches or gypsies divining the future in tea leaves and you’re like…hmm I dunno, kinda looks like a black lump of mud to me. Well, that is the feeling that I got when I heard about Picture Jasper. According to legend, it is used as a divination tool because of its beautifully complex patterns and I’ll admit even I was skeptical. Don’t get me wrong, I mean no offense I have a friend who can read cards with terrifying accuracy, but I mean a stone that can tell you things, no way. Well, as soon as I picked up one of those tumbles I was fascinated. In a single brownstone, I saw what looked like a tree growing strong on a hill in a far off valley above what looked like rice patties. It reminded me of the trip Jay and I took to Bali last year. It made me feel connected to my experiences there and happy to revel in that memory, but the freaky thing is… after handling the stone Jayden was like, “Hey look at these amazing flight deals to Bali, we should go, I’ve been dying to go back.” WHAAAAT! MIC DROP! BOOM! I WAS SHOOKETH!
 
   
JASPER - RAINFOREST
HAPPINESS - ATTRACTING  GOOD VIBES - ENERGY
Whenever I think of a place that generates the most natural good vibes I think of the Rainforest. In the rainforest, each plant, animal, insects and even the environment are working in harmony to create an ecosystem of incomparable beauty. It makes the only sense that Rainforest Jasper attracts an incredible of naturally good vibes and provides an energetic interconnectedness. We all want to feel connected to something so why not feel connected to the good vibes that connect all the energy of the rainforest!
 
JASPER - RED
SECURITY - STRENGTH - GROUNDING
Red Jasper is like the Warrior 2 of the gemstone world; it is representative of strength, grounding, and security. When I look at this stone it reminds me of the red earth beneath our feet here in Australia, it has this kind of strong and ancient, yet humbling presence that you can feel being near it. Thinking about movie archetypes we often see the strong silent types like James Bond, Arya from GoT or really every single one of Liam Neeson’s roles and what makes them so powerful is not their inherent strength, but their security in their own strength, they don’t need to boast about their “specific set of skills”, but we still feel that power. That energy is encapsulated in Red Jasper, it encourages us to demonstrate our strength through our actions instead of words and fight for what we believe in.
 
JASPER - SNAKE
REMOVING OLD HABITS - STRENGTH - GROWTH
The thing I love about Sssssssssssssnakes is their ability to ssssshed their sssssskin (WHAT!? I’m embracing my inner Slytherin with some Parseltongue). You’re probably thinking, “Ew,  Dylan, why do you like that!?” Well, the answer to that is simple. As snakes grow they shed off the skin that is no longer serving them. It got them through, but they have outgrown it and are able to remove the dull scales and emerge shiny and new. Wouldn’t it be lovely to reflect on what was no longer serving you, like say, bad habits and then shedding them off and starting fresh. WELL GUESS WHAT GURL!? Snake Jasper is here for you, named after these amazing reptiles, it stimulates growth, reflection, and shedding of bad habits, like a snake shedding their skin. So peel off those things that make you feel crappy about yourself and emerge strong, powerful and new!
  
JASPER - WEB
CALM - CONNECTION - ALIGNMENT
I AM TERRIFIED OF SPIDERS. I  know I like totally moved to the wrong country, right!? I cannot stand those creepy crawly eight-legged freaks, even though Jayden has tried time and time again to convince me they aren’t trying to kill me…I just can’t. Every time I think I’m getting over my fear of them I find something new about them that is even scarier… but where there is fear, there is an opportunity for curiosity. When I dig deep…and I mean  REAL deep I have to say I  do have a kind of respect for them. They have been around for millennia, they create beautifully connected webs to attract what they want. They are patient and calm, but quick to react, waiting for the perfect moment. These are qualities that I also respect in strong people. People who are calm, patient and yet able to build a connected web around them. For those of us who don’t have those skills naturally, we can get some helpful energy from our web-slinging friends with Web Jasper. 
   
K2 STONE
CLARITY - ENLIGHTENMENT - HEALING
I took one look at K2 and was drawn to it like a moth to a flame, a bodybuilder to a protein shake, an 18-year-old girl to a selfie with the hashtag #blessed…you get my drift. I loved it. In the crystal world, we call it, “THE CALL.” You hear about it all the time, “This crystal just calls to me,” “I was holding these two and this one is just calling to me,” “I wanted Amethyst, but then Citrine just called to me”. Y’all are going to going to rack up a heavy phone bill with all these calls! But fo real doe, K2 called me and was like, “Hey, what up girl, you look like you need a clear route to something fresh.” It was right of course (as crystals often are) and when I help it and meditated with it it made me feel like I had lost my way in the hubbub of everything going on around me instead of focusing on things that matter. My health, my relationships, and my passions and need to mix things up a bit, everything else can come after. It called, I answered…and I’m glad I did. I hope K2 calls to you and I hope you answer too.

  

 
LABRADORITE
POSITIVITY - KINDNESS - IMAGINATION
Kindness is the most attractive quality in a person. Fitting that one of the most attractive stones should be associated with kindness. At first glance, this stone might not look like much, it might even be overlooked, but put it in the spotlight and it will shine with all the colours of the rainbow. We have this stone in our living area near our window so it lights up everyday. It’s a pleasant reminder that you can find beauty and kindness in the most unexpected of places. 
  
  
LAPIS LAZULI
TRANQUILITY - HONESTY - UNDERSTANDING
We’ve all been there… Feeling like you're not communicating yourself clearly, wires are getting crossed, or your emoticons, for once, can’t sum up just how you feel. Bring out your voice with a crystal that represents love, courage, and clear, honest communication; Lapis Lazuli. The great part about it is that as Lapis starts to open you up to honesty, observation and discovery you start to see through BS and gossip more clearly as well.  Ain’t nobody got time fo dat! Keep it real, keep it honest and keep it kind!
 
 
LARVIKITE
PATIENCE - INTENTION - KNOWLEDGE
Larvikite, or sometimes (mistakenly) known as, Black Moonstone (which totes ma goats reminds me of a cool Sailor Moon villain) is stone aligned with patience and knowledge. In my experience with it, I feel that it carries with it complimentary qualities too that of Moonstone, kind of like the New Moon compliments the Full Moon respectively. As such, this stone is perfect for setting intentions, reminding ourselves that what we seek will find it’s way to us if we are patient and that knowledge is the mightiest of weapons.
 
 
LAVA STONE
GROUNDING - CONNECTION TO EARTH - FERTILITY
Ok so let me talk about something I have been hoping to get for like forever.  Lava Stone, it is black, earthy and 100% grounding. It connects us to that raw natural fiery power of the earth on which we all live. This stone brings out our natural instincts and intuition making it a great stone for fertility, linking the mind and body’s natural cycles. Also to top it all off, it looks suuuuper neutral yet chic as an accessory in the form of bracelets or necklaces AND if you put your favorite essential oil on it it will act as a diffuser for you so you can wear your oils for even longer. YES TO ALL OF THAT.
 
 
LEPIDOLITE
SERENITY - PATIENCE - ACCEPTANCE
If you’re anything like me you need about 5 cups of chamomile tea, lavender oil diffusers and at least half an hour of restorative yoga just to get to sleep at night! Thank goodness I found out about Lepidolite, it is a stone of serenity, patience and acceptance. Having it by my bedside has brought me some well-needed stillness to my bedtime routine. Honestly, this stone is incredibly versatile though, we can always take this attitude of patience and acceptance into our everyday lives and bring just a little bit more calm to our crazy lives.
 
LITHIUM QUARTZ
PEACE - STRESS RELEASE - RELAXATION
Very popular for its metaphysical properties, Lithium Quartz brings emotional peace, stress release, and relaxation.  A powerful, yet gentle healer, Lithium Quartz balances the brain and the emotions.  Calming and soothing, Lithium Quartz uplifts the mental and emotional bodies and gently moves repressed anger and grief to the surface so it can be healed.
 
 
MALACHITE
PROTECTION - EMPOWERMENT - EMPATHY
YOU’VE GOT THE POWER! You are a strong, independent person, who don’t need nobody else…but sometimes other people find that kind of strength and confidence intimidating. You hear the gossip mill running, and although you try not to let it get you down, it sometimes does. Malachite is a protection stone and an incredibly strong one at that. It absorbs negative energy from environmental factors like gossip, negative energy and ill intent into its lovely green swirls and radiates out positivity, power and success. This is your “cup half full” stone, taking any negative situation and turning it into opportunities for success.  Feel powerful, feel strong and fee.
  
  
MOOKAITE
INSTINCTS - STRENGTH - VITALITY
Local hero! Mookaite is found only in the Kennedy Ranges of Western Australia in outcroppings near Mooka Creek, the area for which it is named. It is known to the people of that area as a stone of strength and vitality, especially for mothers.  Mookaite promotes an acceptance of change and seeking of new experiences it also awakens one’s natural instincts in knowing the right direction to take. All of these are great qualities for any parent. Whether you’re expecting, have a child, have a fur baby and need some extra UMPH to help you take care of yourself; this Aussie stone has you covered.
  
 
MOONSTONE
FEMININE ENERGY - STABILITY - SUBCONSCIOUS
Embracing your feminine side doesn’t always mean getting your nails did, going to the spa or going on a shopping spree (although if that is your thing all the power to ya!), but notice how all of these acts involve some sort of self-care? We all have a masculine and feminine inside us that fit together in this internal beautiful cycle. Sometimes our masculine energy pushes us to be practical, structured, routine and regimented and that is exactly what we need (especially when we have deadlines coming up). Other times we need our feminine energy, calling on our intuition, emotional compassion, fun, and spiritual side. The two work together inside of us in this beautiful yin/yang, constantly complimenting each other. I find the feminine, spiritual energy especially helpful when working on my own goals and showing myself some compassion, especially when I’m going through struggle town. Moonstone is a stone that really enhances that feminine energy. It brings out compassion and that subconscious kindness; like a teddy bear hug for the mind. I’ve recently started using Moonstone for my meditative practices for this exact reason. Go forth with compassion in your heart and embrace your feminine side.
 
  
 MOONSTONE - CREAM
FEMININE ENERGY - STABILITY - SUBCONSCIOUS
Embracing your feminine side doesn’t always mean getting your nails did, going to the spa or going on a shopping spree (although if that is your thing all the power to ya!), but notice how all of these acts involve some sort of self-care?

MOONSTONE - ORANGE
FLEXIBILITY - OPENNESS - SUBCONSCIOUS
As a Moonstone, this lovely little crystal is associated with the subconscious and opening oneself up to untold opportunities. However, this one is a little more particular. Orange Moonstone is for anyone who needs to let loose and have a little fun! It opens up our mind to flexibility, move around our schedule and leave a little room for the unexpected to happen. We have found this stone is particularly helpful during stagnant times when you feel like you’re in a rut and want to be open to new experiences. Go to the art gallery, take a class in the evenings, paint something! It’s your life, let your mind run wild and have a little fun with it!
 
 
MOONSTONE - PEACH
FERTILITY – LOVE - PROTECTIVE FEMININE ENERGY
Moonstone taps into that divine feminine energy that is within all of us, male or female. It’s that energy of compassion and empathy that allows us to feel a connection to others, to love each other. Peach Moonstone is special in that it emphasises loving,  mothering energies. This stone is used around the world as a stone of fertility (not speaking from personal experience,  obvs!) It is said to boost feelings of intimacy, compassion and caring. Useful for those feeling like they need gentle protective energy, like a warm hug at the end of a long day.
 
 
MORGANITE
ABUNDANT LOVE - JOY - SPIRITUAL GROWTH
Morganite is a stone of young and abundant love. It attracts energies into our lives that spark joy in our romantic lives almost as much as Marie Kondo finds joy in throwing out useless junk from people's closets. You remember that feeling when you are first dating someone that you really like, you know like LIKE LIKE *cue school girl giggles*. Morganite brings that energy into our lives and helps us see through rose-colored glasses again, even if we have been beaten down and unlucky in life and love. So, go back to the good old days of picking petals off flowers asking if they love you/love you not (which we all rigged, let be honest) and that giddy excitement that love can bring.
 
  
MOSS AGATE
BALANCE - EXPRESSION - CONNECTIVITY TO EARTH
Moss Agate is commonly known as the Gardeners Stone because it brings awareness to an energy that is larger than the self, deep ancient earth energy. Now don’t worry, carrying around some Moss Agate isn’t going to encourage you to dance naked in the moonlight around a fire while chanting how much you love Mother Earth (although I do strongly encourage you do try it some time, it is quite liberating). Instead, you can expect a much more subdued connection to the earth, a kind of humbling calm, knowing that the ground beneath you CAN hold you and WILL hold you. This calm balance also encourages a safe space for self-expression and openness (and maybe some moonlit dancing haha).
 
 
MUSCOVITE
STIMULATES MEMORY RETENTION - PUSHING FORWARD - AWARENESS
Oh, where did I put that stone? Where did I leave my cup? Where are my keys? Where the heck am I? Is it just me or is your memory fading every day too? Side note: Maybe it’s cause all my brain space is going to remembering crystal properties haha! Time for me to carry around some Muscovite! This stone stimulates memory retention and awareness of one’s situation, setting, and self. This stone is also fantastic for students of all ages, as it will help with memorisation and gives you a friendly “boop” towards completing academic endeavours. 
    
NUNDORITE
GROUNDING - COOPERATION - NEGOTIATION
Imagine back to the early 2000s. MSN was like totally the hottest thing. You would rush home to message your friends on the computer. You’d have like a super complicated user name, you’d chat for hours sending those first emojis. I can still picture the one with the tongue sticking out! Although now a distant memory, that program opened up a new way to communicate. It opened our minds allowed us to share, cooperate and spill the gossip like never before. This stone, Nundorite, found only here in Australia is like MSN messenger. It opens up new ways of communicating, negotiating and cooperating with peers that you may have been closed off to before. This stone is especially helpful if you are a little shy and need to come out of that comfort zone and speak to new people (kinda like we allllll told our parents we were messaging a friend from school, but it was random on the internet). 
 
 
OBSIDIAN
REFLECTION - REPELS NEGATIVITY - EMOTIONAL GROWTH
Look deep into this Black Mirror… no, not the TV show, the crystal; Obsidian. Obsidian is epic AF with a shiny dark reflective surface. It is a stone that focuses on reflection, and when we say reflection, we don’t mean having a good look at that amazing mug of yours, but reflecting deeply about yourself and who you are. Obsidian helps us see who we are inside and what we really need to be our best selves. Keeping Obsidian in your home also helps relieve emotional distress that may be buried, ignored or forgotten. No ostrich-ing, or putting your head in the sand, anymore!
 
 
OBSIDIAN - GOLDEN SHEEN
SELF-DISCOVERY - TALENTS - PROTECTION
It’s time to let your inner self shine through baby! Obsidian is the stone of self reflection. It holds a mirror up to ourselves and lets us see how we are really feeling behind any masks  (or layers of makeup) that we put on. Sometimes that con be a  confronting image (especially if you haven’t taken that make up  off in a while). Golden Sheen Obsidian lets your inner self SHINE. Instead of showing you your deepest darkest  emotions, it  brings forwards the inner parts of you that you may not know you had. Hidden talents, quirks or self discoveries are common place when working with Golden Sheen Obsidian and it is not uncommon to learn something new about yourself that surprises you.  So embrace that inner you, they may have a  (magic)trick up their sleeve that will make you fall in love with yourself all over again.  
 
 
OBSIDIAN - MAHOGANY
EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE - SELF-REFLECTION - EMOTIONAL GROWTH
Do you feel like you need to take a look inwards to find your purpose, but maybe a little anxious about what you’ll find there? Don’t worry, an inward journey can be the scariest of all, that is why we recommend Mahogany Obsidian for those who are new to meditating with crystals. Obsidian is great for emotional growth, reflection and facing your inner saboteur, but that is like diving in the deep end of the pool. Mahogany Obsidian, on the other hand, will gently take your hand and lead you in from the shallow end. 
 
  
OBSIDIAN - SNOWFLAKE 
REFLECTION - EMOTIONAL GROWTH - SOOTHING
In our household we are huge fans of Obsidian, so we decided to introduce some variety and spice things up if you will and boy are we happy we did. Snowflake Obsidian, like its cousin is a stone of internal reflection and emotional growth, it encourages us to take a deeeeeeeeeep look inward and examine the truths and lies we tell ourselves to get by.  My lies are something like “on Monday I’ll finally start that diet” or “If I bought a new Lulu top I’d definitely go to the gym more often”, Obsidian is like no no Dylan you defs won’t. Snowflake, however, adds on a little bit of soothing qualities that soften those harsh truths. They sound more like …“I can always eat cleaner and why not start next meal” and “that Kmart singlet will do just fine for your workout (albeit will smell much worse), you should get your sweat on!” So if you need a SOFT reality check, check out our good friend Snowflake.
  
  
ONYX
WILLPOWER - SELF-CONTROL - CONFIDENCE
Where there’s a will, there’s a way and baby I like the way you’re thinking! Black Onyx is all about having the intuition, will power and self-control to achieve goals that we have; whether they be work goals like making sure Susan gets all her paperwork signed and back on her desk by the end of the week. Fitness goals, like, running that 5km without DYING! Or personal goals, like, taking time to actually read that book that you promised yourself you we're going to do. Take control of your life and get it done with confidence!
  
  
OPALITE
MEDITATION - POSITIVITY - DREAMING
Breathe in deeply and think about how bloody awesome you are. Breathe out all den bad vibes. Breathe in positivity and success and confidence. Breathe out toxic people and gossip. Meditating is important for your mind and soul and Opalite is a stone that can help keep you focussed while meditating. Opalite is a stone that you should have if you wish to harness and increase your personal power. It will boost your self-esteem and improve your sense of self-worth. Together with these empowering qualities, Opalite is perfect for people who are starting new adventures or moving onto a new chapter of their lives. Start that chapter off right and fresh.
 
 
PEACOCK ORE
HAPPINESS - SUCCESS - LIVING IN THE PRESENT
I can just hear your anguished cries as  I’m writing this, “but Dylan, it’s a metaaaallll”, you’ll say. To which I will, of course, roll my eyes and respond, “but it’s pretty so deal with it”. Yes, Peacock Ore is a metallic sulphide structure, however, I challenge you to hold one of these little iridescent beauties and NOT be happy as a clam! Working with it I have found that it acts like a little rainbow pocket-sized pride parade. It’s fun, it’s colourful, it makes ya happy and it reminds us to enjoy and love the moments as they come. In my mind, although it isn’t a crystal, I think it’s one of the happiest little stones around!
   
PETRIFIED WOOD
PERSEVERANCE - STRENGTH - GROWTH
The wonderful thing about trees is that they are wonderful symbols of perseverance, growth, and interconnection. Trees like literally grow the tiniest seeds to behemoths and not quickly either, they are definitely in it for a marathon race. Trees can live for ages, growing and adapting to new weather, seasonal changes, even creatures using them as a home! They grow, move and adapt. Petrified Wood has the added benefit of fossilising underneath the ground, solidifying the tree into a rock!  This stone carries with it all that adaptable energy of a tree…and you look way less weird carrying a tumble around instead of a stick!
 
 
PREHNITE
SPIRITUAL GROWTH - PREPARATION - PERSPECTIVE
This stone helps us open our heart to new experiences and see new perspectives, especially if they are in terms of spirituality. If you are anything like me, you will start to talk to someone about your crystals, sage, energies, etc. and they start to get this glazed look over their face like, “This guy is an absolute wacko”. When approaching people that are closed off to seeing new perspectives it is helpful to carry Prehnite. It subconsciously prepares you and those around you for new experiences. Let me tell you my dears, this stone is like a total lifesaver when you are feeling stagnant and need a change of perspective yourself.
  
 
PRINT STONE
COURAGE IN CREATIVE ENDEAVOURS - PROTECTION
Have you ever heard the saying, “Being an artist is a waste, this is no money in it!” Cause I sure have and I have to say that this is one of the most ridiculous things and demoralizing things I have ever heard. It totally discounts an essential group of people that contribute to our culture and well being. A whole generation of people was told this over and over again until they were scared to even think creatively, never venturing far from the “safe” analytical black and white worlds. I hate to tell you, but you are  REPRESSED! Letting out your creative side is important to your mental health and a great way to express your feelings, but how do we get over our fear of letting that sideshow.  Well, here we a little helper to put your mind at ease. Print Stone is an artist's best friend allowing your creative side to flow freely!
 
 
PYRITE
CONFIDENCE - SUCCESS - MONEY
Stand tall baby, you are confident, you are a star, you are solid gold…pyrite? Pyrite is a stone of confidence and protection. It shields those who need a boost during tough times, rebuild tears in self esteem and helps them walk tall with their shoulders back, head held high and walking as if they have an invisible fan in front them at all times.
 
 
RED ALUM CLUSTER
PURIFICATION - CLEANSING - HEALING 
Although we pride ourselves on having natural stones when we saw the one we just knew you guys would love it. Red Alum is a man-made stone that has an extremely unique crystalline structure. It is known for its purification and cleansing properties. In fact, it has been used in several skincare products as an antibacterial and purification agent. On its own, I find it shares a type of cleansing energy similar to quartz. Although it is tempting to carry this around with you always, please remember that this stone is easily solvable in water. You wouldn’t want your beautiful, purification stone to pull a Wicked Witch of the West and melt before your eyes!  
 
 
RHODONITE
HEALING - FORGIVENESS - BONDING
Let it goooo, let it goooo, you can’t hold onto that emotional baggage anymore! It may be an ex that totally ran over your heart with a truck. It could be your fear that you are going to embarrass yourself if you ever sing again like you did at the office karaoke party. Regardless of what it is, Elsa said it best, you need to let go of fear. Rhodonite is the equivalent of bolt cutters to that emotional ball and chain you’ve been carrying around. This stone helps loosen fears hold on you and allows you to accept your past mistakes, learn from them and give it a go again.
  
 
RHODOCHROSITE
EMOTIONAL HEALING - JOY - HAPPINESS
In the words of one of my idols Marie Kondo “We can only transform our lives if we sincerely want to. Small changes transform our lives”. This quotes 100% “sparks joy” in me and reminds me of one of the most beautiful stones to grace our collection. Rhodochrosite is a stone that “sparks joy” by tidying up our emotional junk drawer and allowing room for new happiness, healing, and love to enter our lives. It’s beautiful pink hues remind us to make those small changes that will ultimately add up to a big change in our lives and the lives of others.
 
 
ROSE QUARTZ
LOVE - OPTIMISM - COMPASSION
“You are a song, a dream, a whisper and I don’t know how I could have lived without you for as long as I have” (The Notebook) I whisper lovingly to my collection of Rose Quartz. Love is a strong word. The dictionary defines love as an intense feeling of deep affection. There are very few things in this word that I truly love…I love my pugs, I love my partner, I love pizza (more than I should) and I love Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love; feelings of love, affection, happiness and peace are all attracted to its soft pink glow. Trust me when I say it’s “going to treat you so nice you’re never going to let go” (Pretty Woman). Having this stone in your home invites love and peace in. “You should be [loved] and often” (Gone With The Wind) so why not open yourself up to some love.
 
  
 RUBY IN FUSHITE
HEART OPENING - HEALING - PASSION
“Don’t break my heart, my achy break heart, I just don’t think it’d understand”…This is the FIRST and hopefully, LAST time I ever quote Billy Ray Cyrus, however as soon as I started working with this stone, this song came into my head! This stone takes those achy breaks hearts of ours and helps patch em up and get them back out there! Ruby in Fushite is essentially a bottle of wine, spa day and rebound F all rolled into a nice little stone; getting you off the road of heartbreak and back in the field. Don’t get me wrong, I’d recommend still doing those things for the fun of it, but having these crystals around will help the process along faster!
 
 
RUBY IN ZOISITE 
APPRECIATION - POWER - PASSION
A Stone inside a stone? STONECEPTION! This lovely little crystal is jammed pack full benefits! We got passion, we got power, but most importantly we have appreciation. This stone is known for boost the feeling of one’s self-worth so you can stroll down the street strutting your stuff knowing you’ve got everything under control. No one comes for someone who is passionate about what they do, knows their self-worth and isn’t afraid to show it. They say pride is a sin, but screw them, you’ve worked hard for what you’ve got and you have every right to be proud of it! Let Ruby in Zoisite be the Ruby slippers you need to strut down the yellow brick road to your goals!
 
 
RUTILATED QUARTZ
ENERGY - ENLIGHTENMENT - GOOD VIBES YO
I FEEEL GOOD! I KNEW THAT I WOULD! I FEEEEEL NICE LIKE SUGAR AND SPICE! SO GOOD, SO NICE! Eh, you know the rest. I’m feeeeelin fine and I have to say it’s the little battery pack I got in my pocket. Yep, I’m talking about Rutilated Quartz. The little “rays of sunshine” as I affectionate call them to make these Quartz crystals sparkle and shimmer and bring a sense of energy and vitality to their energy. Just carrying one around reminds me of that last day of school before summer feeling. You're all good vibes, your inner self is glowing and you can take on anything. That’s what this stone is about feeling light, feeling energised and feeling good. 
 
SCOLECITE
GROUP COMMUNICATION - CONNECTION - TOLERANCE
So I can’t speak for everyone, but I think it’s a universal truth that you will never get along with all your coworkers/group members. In my university experience, I found that I could barely tolerate them let alone rely on them and more often than not, I’m glad I trusted my gut and did my own work cause they continuously let me down. Now, I’m not just a victim here, I should have communicated/delegated/tolerated better. I WISSSSSHHHHHHH I had had Scolocite with me at the time. It is said to aid in solving or coping with group issues.  This unique and dazzling stone can be used to enhance connectivity between members of a group to make a greater whole, or it can help individuals in the group to be more tolerant of one another. It sounds like something that should be a staff room staple (I may sneak one in next to the coffee maker). If you feel your group needs some help connecting, communicating and seeing eye to eye then let this stone be your lifeline.
 
 
SELENITE
CLEANSING - RECHARGING - CLARITY
Have you ever felt like you need to take a completely biodegradable cleanser and a scrub brush to your energies? If that’s the case Selenite is your new best friend. This beautiful stone is known for cleansing entire areas of negative energy and replacing it with nothing but good vibes. In fact, it is so good that it can be used to cleanse and recharge other crystals just by being near it. Never needing to be cleansed itself, you can use Selenite as your personal charging port, making your home and your body feel cleaner and calmer.
  
 
SERPENTINE
INDEPENDENCE - PROTECTION - CONFIDENCE
I feel like snakes get a real bad rap, and I kinda admire them. After hatching, they are independent, making their way in a really tough world. As they grow, they shed off their scaly skin and start fresh, larger and stronger. They can move elegantly and gracefully, but when they need to they can strike rapidly and mercilessly. They may creep some people out, but I think we could learn a thing or two from snakes: independence helps us grow, as we go through life we will struggle, but sometimes the best thing we can do is shed off our old ways of thinking and go forward a better version of ourselves and having the wisdom to know when to move away gracefully from a situation or strike head on. Although I admire snakes, my home is not the place for them, so next best thing to manifest these reptilian attributes is Serpentine. Beautiful, yet striking it encourages you to be a strong independent person that takes sh*t from nobody. Go get it!
 
 
SHIVA LINGAM
AWAKENING OF SPIRITUAL SELF - CREATIVITY - EXPRESSION
Named after a holy site in India, Shiva Lingam is a stone that is said to expand the mind’s eye, awake spiritual energies and boost creativity. It’s basically the LSD of the crystal world, let’s be honest. It aids in understanding polar energies such as male or female, light or dark, and spiritual or physical so that you can get a broader understanding of both. This is especially useful for those of us who need a little help finding harmony, self-acceptance, and acceptance of the differences in others. 
 
 
SHUNGITE
GROUNDING – CLEANSING – SELF-CARE
You know that feeling when you’ve put your heart and soul into a project at work or home and you obsess about it until it is finally over and then you sit back and don’t even know what to do with yourself? You know you have other things on your to-do list…but you can’t think of them. Your body is like “ya we done now, bye” and your mind checked out the minute the event ended. When moments like this come along you need something that can cleanse and ground and makes sure you look out for numero uno! Introducing Shungite, she’s a stone that pulls that floopy mind back down to Earth, helps you feel refreshed and new and encourages you to make choices that are in your own best interest. She’s like the spa day of our crystal collection.

 

SMITHSONITE
NURTURE - RELEASE TENSION - LET GO OF ANGER 
Anyone who knows me knows that I wear my emotions on my sleeve and that you can clearly see how I feel about something by taking a quick glance at my reaction. In fact, it has gotten me in trouble more than once at a staff meeting or two *cue rolling eyes every time someone asks a question after the meeting was supposed to be over*. There are times however when you do hold onto your emotions, you start to feel it bubble up inside of you and you push it down further and further until BAM! You explode at some poor unsuspecting person who may have accidentally crossed your path. If ANY of this is resonating with you, you should probably get some Smithsonite, known for its ability to nurture out of us our emotions and release tension and anger in smaller, more positive doses, like opening a shaken bottle of soda slowly. Not to mention its pretty AF, can’t complain about that!  
 
 
SMOKY QUARTZ
GROUNDING - STABILITY - GRATITUDE
Girl it’s time to get grounded and grateful. Our lives flash before our eyes we don’t have time to think about all the negativity and BS that is flung at us on a daily basis. We get bogged down thinking we aren’t enough, we have to do or be better than we are and we forget about all that we do have.  Smoky is here to remind you that you need to sit yo ass down and think about what you have. Smoky Quartz clears the mind of anger and jealous and focuses it specifically on what you should be grateful for.
 
  
SODALITE
TRUTH - INTUITION - SELF ESTEEM
Despite what you may see on Instagram, I have always struggled with my self-esteem. It’s been a huge issue for me and that is why I almost always carry Sodalite around with me. This beautiful little crystal intensifies the need for truth and promotes to seeing clearly. It boosts intuition and promotes acting logically then emotionally. Furthermore, it strengthens your self-esteem. It helps you come out of your shell and say, “I’m 100% me, bitch!”. Do yourself a favour and let Sodalite help you come out of your shell, a new day of being confidently yourself is waiting. 
 
 
SPHENE
ORGANISATION - BALANCE - GROUNDING
Sugar and spice and everything nice, that’s are what this crystal is made of! Here we have three different stones all combined into a beautiful piece that screams GORGEOUS. These pieces were hand-selected for us from miners with the purpose of sharing these stunning pieces with you. Sphene is a stunning green gemstone of high quality and rarity, making it very uncommon even amongst collectors (A.K.A. hoarders like us haha). Sphene is a gem that intensifies cravings for organisation and pumps your memory into overdrive! Paired with Adularia Quartz and Hematite which promote balance and grounding respectively, this makes this combo a premium triple threat for all things home or work-related!
  
SPINEL IN MATRIX
HOPE - PLAYFULNESS - PATIENCE
Have you ever held out hope for something and waited patiently, only too have your heart broken? It is an all too familiar story. We try to see the best in others and sometimes we don’t know an entire situation, but they let us down.  When this happens we can become spiteful, angry, vengeful even. You swear to yourself that you’ll never let this happen again, but I want to tell you that those qualities. Hope, playfulness, and patience are all beautiful qualities that make you a wonderful and loving person. Don’t let a  negative experience burn who you are to the ground. Spinel is a gemstone that is known for bringing these qualities back to the light when we have lost our way or forgotten ourselves. Our stones are Spinel in Matrix, meaning that they are Spinel gems held together with granite.  
 
STROMATOLITE
TRANSFORMATION - GROWTH - MEMORY RECALL
In order to grow, we need to learn from the lessons we have learned. Unfortunately, If you’re anything like me, I tend to blackout things in the past that are no longer serving me. It’s a blessing and a curse. Sometimes I feel like I approach every new challenge with a child-like curiosity and enthusiasm and when I  do get hurt I shut that side out and pretend it was like an etch-a-sketch and shake it off until I can pretend never happened, but I rarely learn my lesson! Having a little bit of memory recall is just what I  need to grow and learn from my life lessons. To assist me I’ve started adding Stromatolite into my personal collection and I have been amazed at the results. I’ve even started remembering people's names at parties when they’ve been introduced to me! 
 
 
SUNSTONE
VITALITY - HAPPINESS - GOOD FORTUNE
We all could use some D…as in Vitamin D (y’all nasty and I like it). However, sometimes the sun just doesn’t seem to shine on us. It feels like we have a permanent raincloud over our head and it doesn’t look like it’s letting up anytime soon. LET THE SUNSHINE, LET THE SUNSHINE IN, with our good friend Sunstone! This stone is everything the sun represents; happiness, energy, vitality,  good fortune, smiles, life! Carry it around with you for a pep in your step and a little bit of luck in your pocket. I also recommend keeping this stone charged and placing it in parts of your home that don’t get a lot of sun to bring in that revitalising energy to every room.
 
 
TEKTITE (ADVANCED)
STRENGTHENING SPIRITUAL ENERGY - BOOSTING MEDITATION - INSIGHT
So you’ve been on this journey for a while now. You’ve probably been to a reiki master (heck, you may be a reiki master), you’ve had a house full of crystals, you go to yoga and meditate to the tune of Tibetan singing bowls that you got while Eat Pray Loving yourself through Tibet. You may have even done a Bali yoga retreat…or five. We get it you’ve been there and done that. GIVE ME THE HARD STUFF DYLAN. Ya, ya, don’t get your dreadlocks in a knot, here at C&S we have something for every level. Tektite is an advanced meditation stone. It delves deep into the subconscious and builds up spiritual energy like a plug-in charging your higher self up! Those who use this stone often find that they will have insights tones perspectives and new workarounds to problems they hadn’t thought of before. This stone must be cleansed and recharged after each use!
 
  
TIGERS EYE
RESILIENCE - STRENGTH - WILLPOWER
IT’S THE EYE OF THE TIGER, IT’S THE THRILL OF THE- - -…oh sorry, I didn’t see you there…how embarrassing. I guess I got carried away holding this Tigers Eye. This beautiful earthy stone increases confidence and supports resilience in stressful situations. It gives strength, luck and positive energy in times of change and helps to retain perspective. It’s like the perfect companion for a job interview, important meeting or (in my case) karaoke drinks with friends.
    
TIGERS EYE - BLUE
GO WITH THE FLOW - CALM - DEALING WITH FEAR
Totally tubular dude…I remember going through what my parents called “a phase” where I was just a total hippy. I was all go with the flow and wore hemp sweaters and made sure the family bought recycled, organic, fair-trade and cruelty-free. Turns out it wasn’t a phase MOM, I’m actually just a good person. BOOM MIC DROP! Now as an adult, although those values remain, I don’t always feel that totally rad, go with the flow attitude and need a little assistance in that department. If you’re like me and could use some time to relax, maybe Blue Tiger’s Eye is what you need. Known for its relaxing qualities and overall chill vibes it is great at cooling your moods and even helping you approach your fears. Now I have yet to work too much with this one so I doubt I’ll be getting over my fear of spiders anytime soon, but who knows. 
 
 
TIGERS EYE - RED
MOTIVATION - STIMULATION - ENCOURAGEMENT
Have you ever woken up and just sprung out of bed after an amazing sleep? You feel like you can conquer the world; you’re motivated, you’re energised and you’re a MOTHERF*CKING BOSS! Ya…ya…it’s been a while for us too, nowadays, in order to get that feeling I need to be at LEAST three coffees deep in my day. To try and motivate myself to get going I’ve been rotating in and out some of our new Red Tiger’s Eye. Think of it as a double espresso for your vibes. Working with this stone encourages goal smashing behaviour and the best part is that it also promotes self-encouragement so that you can go forth and be your own champion.
 
   
TIGERS IRON
STRENGTH - STAMINA - GROUNDING
Tigers Iron is a stone containing layers of Tiger Eye, Jasper, and Hematite.  It’s like in Glee when they did mashups of your two fav songs, or when two artists you love to feature on each other’s album, or when your fav Instagrammers collab for something. Working together means you can get something truly unique, but still with the best of both from the originals. Tigers Iron is just that, a wonderful mix of strength, determination and stamina from Tiger’s Eye mixed with grounding and absorption of negative energy from Hematite. Talk about a match made in heaven…well, actually it’s made in the earth when the two stones are sediment togeth- oh sorry. It rocks. Hehe, see what I did there.
 
 
TOURMALINE - BLACK
REPELS NEGATIVE ENERGY - PROTECTION - GROUNDING
Hide yo kids hide yo wifi! Black tourmaline is in town, by popular demand this stone is the be all and say all of the protection stones. Think of your bad vibes and negativity as mosquitos that swarm around your head and occasionally bite you, draining your life energy…and this stone is like a giant can of bug spray! This is a stone that we recommend having in your home and preferably near doors. They act as a barrier for bad energy and prevent it from even entering your home. Feeling especially negative at work? Try it out as a paperweight and watch attitudes around you (including your own) change. Maybe even feeling down on the dumps yourself? CARRY SOME IN YOUR POCKETS, THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS (I was doing my best Nicole Byers impersonation, go back read that in her voice). This is a stone that just changes the game.
 
 
TOURMALINE - PINK
SELF-DESTRUCTIVE THOUGHTS - ANXIETY - BAD VIBES
DON’T BE SO HARD ON YOURSELF. We live in a world where perfection (which is unattainable) is seen as something to aim for. It is ridiculous, and when we look at our selves in the mirror and see beautiful raw humanity we call ourselves names like fat, skinny, ugly, worthless, etc. I’ve struggled with self-esteem issues all my life. Self-destructive thoughts have always gotten in my way. That is why I am excited to work with Pink Tourmaline. This stone is a protector, like Black Tourmaline, but instead of protecting us from outside forces, it is gently protecting us from ourselves and the despicable way we treat ourselves. We would never in a million years speak to another human the way we speak to ourselves and the cycle needs to end. End it with me. Join me and some PT and lets work on loving ourselves more. This stone is known for working well in tandem with Rose Quartz. 
 
 
TOURMALINATED QUARTZ
PROTECTION - AMPLIFICATION - GOOD LUCK
Has it not been your day, your month or even your year? Do you need to repel some of that negative juju, but also need to bring yourself up and amplify your positive energy? Can’t decide between Clear Quartz and Black Tourmaline? WHY NOT BOTH!? Tourmalinated Quartz is a Clear Quartz crystal that has Black Tourmaline throughout it and because of this, it carries with it the qualities of both! Dust off those feelings of inadequacy and lift yourself onto a higher vibration! You deserve to feel great today. 
 
 
TREE AGATE
GROUNDING - EMPOWERMENT - CONNECTIVITY
Tree Agate is a stone that acts like a tree’s root system, connecting us to the earthly energy below us. This makes it a powerful grounding stone. Like the tree from which it is named it will inspire you to create a strong foundation and from there build yourself up into a colossus of energy. When working with Tree Agate, you may find people drawn to you. It’s that energy yo! You are giving off some serious Mother Nature vibes! Embrace your inner Gaia and stand tall like the beautiful tree you are. 
 
 
UNAKITE
NURTURING - INCLUSION - TEAMWORK
Unakite is a jasper combination of Epidote, Pink Feldspar, and Jasper. This particular stone is associated with teamwork and collaboration; especially inclusivity and blossoming friendships. This stone is especially useful when working or traveling with new people or people that you know very little about. This stone promotes the opening of connections and collaborating, which could lead to new friendships, relationships or appreciation (perhaps I should give one to Susan in HR).
 
 
VERDITE 
FERTILITY - COMMITMENT - RELIABILITY 
Commitment is sexy, having been together for nearly a decade now, Jayden and I defs think that choosing to commit to something or someone doesn’t have to get boring. I mean, yes, over time we have swapped out nightclubs for pug cuddles on the couch, but it’s rarely a boring experience. The thing is commitment takes work, trust, reliability, and fun; as per usual we also have a crystal that can help with that! Introducing Verdite, this stone is known for commitment enhancing vibes as well as being known as a fertility stone, making it ideal for lovers (We will keep you posted if either of us gets pregnant haha!)
 
VESONITE
SEXUAL ENERGY - EMOTIONAL CONNECTION - COMMITMENT
Do you know what really pushes my buttons? You know what really flips my switch!? Do you know what really gets my kettle boiling? (I’m running out of appliances…) Do you know what really turns me on? Commitment and emotional connection,  that’s what! Whether you have been with someone for nearly a decade or you’re just meeting someone for the first time, having an emotional connection makes the bedroom a better place to be. Trust and connection make the magic happen baby, but if you’re feeling like you could use a little pick me up performance-wise, why not try a little Vesonite. Oh ya, this stone will have you connected to your partner better than those handcuffs ever could (or used in tandem, you do you boo). Vesonite gives off a vibe of trust, connection, and commitment, opening up the heart and giving way to new romantic experiences both in and out of the bedroom.
 
WHITE HOWLITE
TRUTH - GROUNDING - PROTECTION
A protective stone used by warriors for thousands of years, Howlite is the spiritual moisturiser to a heart that’s been dried up by old emotional wounds and chronic stress. Modern life might not be a Game of Thrones episode, but it does have its share of eyebrow-raising moments. Wherever you happen to be on your journey, let Howlite be your welcome oasis in a spiritual desert.
 
 
YELLOW ARAGONITE
STRENGTHEN WILL - TAKE ACTION - ATTITUDE
You ever had a coworker or someone else who is trying to back you into a corner about  a decision? There is something despicable about having someone try and overpower  you into thinking or acting a certain way. I used  to crumble and  go with the flow, but Yellow Aragonite is all about inspiring will power, taking action and developing a go-get-it attitude. In this certain situation, armed with my little crystal buddy I told that person exactly where to put their negativity and stood up for myself. It’s an important lesson to  learn and handy to have a helping hand when dealing with it!  
 
 ZEBRA AGATE
ENERGISATION - MOTIVATION - REMOVAL OF APATHY
This may just be me, but whenever I  find a stone that has been named after an animal, I always find that that is what I  focus on when I’m using it or meditating with it. Even though it was probably named Zebra Agate (or Zebra Marble) because it has a zebra-like pattern on it, I like to think it’s more than that. When I  think of Zebras I think of those giant herds running across the Savannah, so full of life and energy, motivated to follow the water and grass (clearly I watch a lot of animal docos). I also think of the way a zebra herd works together to create a pattern that makes it hard to distinguish one from another. They look out for each other and work together for survival. These qualities are what I found in this stone; of togetherness, removal of apathy, energisation, and motivation! 
 
ZEOLITE
COMPLEXITY - OVERCOMING SELF-JUDGEMENT - TOGETHERNESS
Human relationships are complicated and beautiful. I wish I could use the life-changing the power of tidying up to organise the people in my life, but I can’t! We need to learn how to behave and act around family, friends, coworkers, peers, customers, children, etc. We need to learn to still be our authentic self while still finding a place in society. Let me tell you; this can be tough! The number of times I’ve almost sworn in front of a child or told an inappropriate joke in front of my grandma! YIKES! Some people view this changing role as putting on a mask, but I prefer to look at it as different facets of ourselves. Zeolite reminds me of the complexity of our human interactions and the togetherness we form. Zeolite can be a combination of 45 different mineral materials that metamorphosed into beautiful combinations;  coming together to form unreal and breathtaking shapes and patterns. The other thing these specimens are great for letting go of self-judgment so that you can be yourself, while still being a good adult, coworker, family member or friend.
