Amethyst Tower / Obelisk / Point
Amethyst is perfect for helping you let go of not-so-good habits or lifestyle behaviors. For centuries, it has been connected with sobriety and spirituality and will help increase your serenity and calmness. But also, if you need some motivation, amethyst can help you set realistic goals and stimulate your mind when you need it.
Malachite Tower / Obelisk / Point
Malachite is known as the transformation stone because it is a deeply healing gem, helping you move on and take the life lessons from painful experiences. It can help you break patterns and heal from traumatic past events or painful emotional wounds. Restore your self-worth and increase your self-awareness with this understanding gem.
Lepidolite Tower / Obelisk / Point
Gentle in serene shades of lilac wine, the Lepidolite crystal is here to turn up the volume on your dopamine levels, to serve a feast of feel-good vibes, and to harmonize all those emotions that may be running riot in your body, mind, and soul. Instantly soothing in its soft lavender and lilac shade, it’s easy to immediately connect with the calming nature of Lepidolite.
Lepidolite Healing Properties
The Lepidolite crystal properties work by bringing awareness to your current state of being. By focusing on what you are feeling right now, you can begin to take a step back from worrying about the future or stressing about the past and come back to your breath. The tranquility and calm that Lepidolite provides helps you to take a deep breath and focus on solutions so you can address the source of your stress rather than letting it take over. The ultra-soothing vibrations of this stone is also what makes it such a powerful crystal for supporting sleep and relaxation.
How to Use Lepidolite
Another way to connect with the Lepidolite crystal meaning is by incorporating it into your meditation practice, a powerful way to access the healing energy of this striking purple stone. Sit quietly with the stone and breathe in the healing energy of the universe while exhaling to release negativity and other unwanted energies from your mind, body and spirit.
Kunzite Crystal Rough / Raw Stone
When you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed, Kunzite can help your thoughts turn more positive and help you find peace. A stone of unconditional love, Kunzite is extremely spiritual and provides protection by dispelling negativity.
Tiger's Eye Rough / Raw Stone
Tiger Eye Meaning
Tiger’s Eye invites the wearer to embrace their inner-strength, personal willpower, and to call on the powers of protection. Colored with golden bands, flecks of sand, and smudges of inky black and brown – there’s no disputing the wild force and energy that can be found in this stone.
Tiger's Eye Healing Properties
This stone comes with plenty of emotional healing properties and helps the wearer to stay strong, centered and connected to their core regardless of the chaos that surrounds them. When feeling blocked, the energy of Tiger’s Eye can also cut straight through that lack of motivation and help shift focus by encouraging a more active approach to life.
By building that safe and strong foundation, directing energy in the right way, and soaking up the radiant sunny warmth of the stone, those who make space for the Tiger’s Eye in their life may find that new confidence carries them over and helps them to drive for success. As part of the healing powers, toxic energies are washed away, mental roadblocks pushed aside, and deepest dreams suddenly stop being visions and become well and truly in targeted reach.
Fluorite Raw Crystal Cluster / Geode Green
Fluorite crystals are a detoxification tool used to ground yourself, clear confusion, and improve decision-making. If you’re in need of clarity, fluorite will clear out all that negative energy clouding your judgment.
Fluorite crystals are used to clear your mind by releasing the negativity that’s in your way. Once you are grounded with positive, calming energy, fluorite allows you to see clearly. Never make an important decision without the cool, connecting wisdom that fluorite crystals provide.
Fluorite crystals are a wonderful addition to any business. The positive energy boosts your decision-making skills and leads you to a clear path towards success.
Natural Honey Calcite Crystal Sphere Ball
Honey Calcite teaches us about the right use of power and encourages responsibility in leadership. Honey Calcite increases feelings of confidence and courage and assists in overcoming obstacles. This type of Calcite helps one to find their personal power, while bringing a sense of self-worth and help recovering those that have experienced abuse. This crystal is connected to the Solar Plexus and Sacral chakras, and oozes accomplishment. It brings focused energy, inspiration, clarity and grounding.
How to Cleanse Your Crystals
For cleansing, Selenite plates or slabs work well for smaller pieces. For larger geodes, a little bit of Palo Santo or ethically sourced sage works just fine.
How to Incorporate Crystals into Your Life
- On a piece of paper, write down one area of your life you want to grow and develop. Place your crystal on top of it.
- Meditate with a crystal in each hand to align yourself with the energy of that particular stone. This works great for smaller pieces and tumbled or raw stones.
- For crystal towers: The shape of carved standing crystal points direct and focus energies out the termination point. These stones are excellent for raising the vibration of a location, like a room. Place the crystal point on your altar or within any sacred space to release their healing power.
