CRYSTALS FOR PEACE & CALM:
Blue Lace Agate
It’s hard not to lose yourself in the ripples of lavender blue! This form of layered blue and white Agate is so soothing and tranquil. It is becoming more expensive, especially the larger pieces but well worth adding to your crystal collection if you don’t have it.
Candle Quartz is sometimes known as Pineapple Quartz but should not be confused with Spirit Quartz. This is a formation of milky white Snow Quartz that grows into broad crystal points. The sides are characterised by their ‘melted wax’ appearance caused by the merging of multiple crystal points.
Due to its shape and size, Candle Quartz is better for holding while meditating or placed inside the home. It emits a peaceful spiritual vibration and energy that supports relaxation and inner peace.
This is a well loved and essential stone for anyone into crystal healing. Soft pink Rose Quartz has calming and soothing energy. Its loving energies are comforting, soft and gentle. Another tactile stone that is easy to find and affordable enough to have several forms. A Rose Quartz Heart supports peace and harmony.
Amazonite ranges from pale green to blue-green and may have lighter or white banding. Some stones show grey or black markings caused by the inclusion of Smoky Quartz. This useful crystal balances your energy and brings inner peace. Amazonite helps release stress and supports the personal healing journey.
For peace and calm, recommend the traditional green, blue-green, lavender or white varieties of Jade (aka Nephrite Jade or Jadite). The shade of colour and clarity varies greatly but it usually has a waxy look. Jade carries meditative peaceful energy and encourages calmness and tranquillity on our life path.
Please be aware that Jade is often faked or mis-sold, so always buy from a reputable seller and ask questions. High-quality Jade is not cheap. Nephrite Jade is darker green, less transluscent and cheaper than Jadite.
This well-known stone ranges from sky blue to blue-green. It is always opaque and may have brown mottling or veins. Turquoise is a deep stress reducer and helps find your place of inner peace. Like Jade, some other stones are often dyed to look like Turquoise. Just remember genuine Turquoise is never cheap these days. Turquoise is a very tactile stone.
Aquamarine comes in two colours, either a blue or a sea green. It ranges from opaque to completely transparent gem quality varieties. Aquamarine has a cleansing and calming aura. This is a very relaxing water element stone. More opaque and translucent stones may have white veins and are much more affordable.
