Crystals

I love crystals, I will completely lose my train of thought and suffer from “OSC” oh shiny crystals! I work with them every day and have for years while creating “pagan prayer beads”. These are my latest, (surprisingly I don’t have a ridiculously huge personal collection) Brecciated Jasper, Howlite, Azurite in Granite, Lapis Lazuli and a surprise of Blue Fluorite. These are all from Bliss Crystals on Etsy. Check her out, she never fails to deliver ❤ Let’s start with the Brecciated Jasper, my impression is that it’s a strong stone very earthy, channeling clarity and clearing negativity. It ‘s an amazing fusion of Jasper and Hematite melding the benefits of both. Here is my beautiful piece ☺ it loves to hang out with my Efflorescent Tarot (I trimmed these cards) ❤
Next up is Howlite! I think Howlite gets a bad rap. Usually you see it after it’s been dyed blue to fake turquoise, the worst atrocity of purple, completely disregarded or really overstated “Sacred Buffalo Turquoise” BS and even though there really is such a thing it’s pretty rare.(I believe the real thing is slightly blue), White Howlite is perfectly valid all by itself. I am guilty of the disregard. I stumbled across a YouTube video by OwlMoon513 here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=w10NYfgRUyU that made me rethink my opinion of howlite. My impressions of Howlite are that is very calming and grounding yet you can fly in to creativity with wild abandon. I love the whiteness of it with the grey veining like the bones of the Earth; here is my piece hanging out with the “Druid Plant Oracle”(yep, cut this one up too)!
Azurite in Granite is kind of a new thing (as much as a stone that’s older than dirt can be) also known as K2 Stone. It’s a high altitude stone with a very indigo vibe, which is perfect because, hey, me too on both counts ☺ I just started working with it and don’t have a lot from it yet but it seems very “intuitive”. I got it to work with “The Wild Unknown Tarot” I think it’s going to be an amazing pairing ☺ Here they are together.
Next is Lapis Lazuli, I have been looking for a stellar piece for quite some time, I wanted one with a constellation of pyrite, this one has that and more. This particular piece is from northern Afghanistan ❤ They have been mining Lapis there since before the 7th Century BCE. I find it to be a stone of truth and good judgment. It’s also lovely if you happen to be an artistically creative sort of person ☺ I think this is a lovely piece here with my Prisma Visions Tarot.
Lastly was a surprise piece and one that I already love, Blue Fluorite! I have a few pieces, a sphere, and a tiny octahedron, this worry stone is a gifted piece ☺ In working with it I find it to be very “rational” it’s incredible to work with if you find yourself in a crazy space and need to ground and re-center. It has that “SNAP OUT OF IT!” energy. They are perfect for soul retrieval, anxiety and PTSD. They are literally the calm blue pool. Aren’t they pretty?
These are just my personal impressions and experiences with these stones and crystals. What you experience and the information you receive may be different and will only be as good as your ability to hear their voices.

  1. Those are such gorgeous crystals you have. They are all so unique and beautiful. They really seem to go well with their chosen card decks too (love the 3 of Cups card). I am especially drawn to the Blue Fluorite and I can not stop admiring the Lapis...its STUNNING. Fun stuff :-)
