Good evening everyone,
I thought a good way of getting to know you all would be to invite you to post your top three crystals/stones and the reasons behind them. It’s so interesting to hear about the different experiences each individual has with different types, and maybe any beginners reading can learn a few things along the way
I already said mine in another post, but I’ll put it here too to get it going:
Selenite: This was the first stone I ever acquired, it was gifted to me by my mother one year and so I’ve always associated it with a connection with her. After all, it was named after the goddess Selene, and personally I see all the goddess figures as our mothers in some way, so the connection was very strong there.
Fluorite (green, specifically): I’m not sure if it’s because I’m an Earth sign or what, but to me green fluorite emits a pulsing, slow vibration when you hold it, almost like the pulse of a vein. I’ve always seen it as an Earth stone, and the pulse from this particular stone really resonates with me.
Snow quartz: I’m an empath, and whenever I pick up other people’s emotions they always, and I mean always come through as a migraine (if it’s a ‘negative’ emotion). The severity of it seems to depend on how strong the emotion is the other person is feeling, and I find that gently stroking a big rough chunk of snow quartz over my forehead and temples just sucks the pain out completely (I don’t apply pressure, it’s just gently going over the skin). I have a piece with a lovely flat side that I keep specifically for this purpose.
I look forward to hearing what your favourites are!
