LET US HELP YOU RELAX AND REFOCUS
Feeling stress out from all of the craziness going on in the world right now? We are right there with you but we may have just the thing to bring you some comfort in these trying times. If we are all going to be isolated in our homes for the next few weeks, we might as well make our living spaces as comfortable and healthy as possible. According to those who believe (follow?) in metaphysics, a couple of our minerals can really help you relax and clear your mind
Amethyst is a variant of quartz that owes its purple hue to irradiation, impurities of iron and in some cases other transition metals, which result in complex crystal lattice substitutions. The Greek word "amethystos" may be translated as "not drunken". Amethyst was considered to be a strong antidote against drunkenness, which is why wine goblets were often carved from it. This may help some of you during your isolation but we recommend just drinking responsibly. Aside from giving you super human drinking powers that would put a frat boy to shame, Amethyst is a natural tranquilizer. It relieves stress and strain, soothes irritability, balances mood swings, dispels anger, rage, fear and anxiety. All of which could be rearing their heads right now.
Blue Celestite is a perfect support stone for dispelling worries and fears, suspicions, or paranoia, helping one to feel safe and protected. Celestite, also called Celestine, is a strontium sulfate mineral first reported in the 1790’s. Its name, derived from the Latin caelestis, means “celestial” or “heavenly,” and refers to the sky-blue color commonly exhibited by its crystals. It’s like a little piece of heaven that you can display on your shelf.
Amphibole Quartz, also known as Angel Phantom Quartz, is a somewhat rare and beautiful crystal that can only be found in one place in Brazil. The word 'Amphibole' comes from the Greek word 'amphibolos', meaning "ambiguous". This name is likely due to the conglomerate of various inosilicate minerals that exist within. According to metaphysics, amphibole quartz is known to assist a person’s communication with his or her personal spirit angels. Considering most of us are in isolation right now, making a new angel friend could be cool right?
