What's your favourite crystal?

The three most popular crystals in the shop in order are: amethyst, rose quartz and quartz crystal. But people are always asking for different crystals either to help with a specific condition or situation in their life or because it's their favourite crystal. My favourite crystals are tourmaline, citrine and blue quartz. So I wondered about everyone else... What's your favourite crystal?

Spy planes, bad drivers and crystals for eyesight

Just read that the new US spy plane can read a number plate from two miles away up in the sky. This got me thinking about some of the bad driving I've witnessed in the last 24 hours and it makes me wonder how they can pass their diving test having to read a number plate at 20 meters when they can't even see a car! If you're taking your test and worried about your eyesight try placing fire agate on your closed eyelids for 30 minutes or carrying a jade crystal with you and bathing your eyes in a snowflake obsidian elixir.

A little bit of crystal magic (or crystal magick)

Here's a little bit of crystal magic: Lodestone has magnetic properties and pulls things towards you. So try placing a lodestone crystal next to another to amplify its affects and draw its energy to you. For example to bring love into your life you might place your lodestone next to a rose quartz crystal, for health a quartz crystal, success aventurine and for money citrine or gold tiger's eye. Use your imagination and try lodestone with different crystals to see the effects. Some people prefer to spell the magic as magick, but I feel it's all the same - your intent is what is important.

Crystals for babies

I've just been asked by a customer for crystals for her babies. 2 children sleep in the same room and both have disturbed sleep, the mother thinking that an energy or entity is disturbing them. I advised 3 crystals: tourmaline for protection, chrysocolla for the health and well-being of the babies and rose quartz to help create a loving, warm cuddle for the children at night. She instantly realised that the tourmaline was needed by everyone in the family!

Crystal friends

Just a quick thought about crystals. How do you teat them? As tools? As things to use? As friends? When you work more and more with crystals you'll find, like I do, that some become friends. And just like friends some will stay with you throughout your life whilst others will come and go as passing acquaintances. Take another look at your crystals and ask which ones want to be friends today? Perhaps you'll notice one jump out? Carry this crystal with you today or if it's a big crystal try paying it special attention and see what happens.
