I’ve recently bought a few different gems and crystals that I love. I’ve just started getting into gemstones and crystals this past year, and the more I buy and read about them, the more I love them. I got The Crystal Bible as a gift in the past few months, and this is leading me to a pretty heavy crystal and gemstone addiction. I just want to buy them all as I love their meanings and the way they make me feel. Here are a few I’ve bought recently that I really love and what I’ve learned about them.
1. Serpentine Tower
The serpentine gem is said to be a strong gem when it comes to new beginnings. I’m currently venturing into some new territory, so that fits me perfectly!
It is also said to be a good gem for meditation as it allows you to access different levels of consciousness. It’s also good for the heart and blood pressure.
I love the deep green color of this gem, and it’s one of my favorites. I literally got shivers when I picked this up at a gem and stone show I was at. Shivers straight down my legs. I knew I was supposed to have it.
There are many ways to use Serpentine for healing. Serpentine can be worn as jewelry or carried as a talisman. It can also be placed on the body during meditation or crystal healing sessions. Serpentine can also be used in grid work or placed around the home to create a protective barrier against negative energy.
2. Black Zebra Marble Tower
This is another one that gave me shivers. Maybe it’s the tower shape that’s doing it?
From what I read, Black zebra marble is a type of metamorphic rock that is found primarily in Africa. It is black and white in color, with a distinctive zebra-like pattern. The stone is used in a variety of applications, including jewelry, sculpture, and architecture.
It is also believed to have several healing properties. For example, black zebra marble is said to improve circulation and relieve pain.
It is also believed to help balance emotions and promote peace and calm.
In addition, black zebra marble is thought to be helpful in the treatment of anxiety and depression.
To get the most out of these healing properties, it is important to follow some basic steps and guidelines.
- Cleanse Black Zebra Marble by bathing it in water or smudging it with sage or other cleansing herbs. This helps to clear any energy that may be lingering, setting the stage for positive healing energy to flow through the stone.
- Once it has been cleansed, Black Zebra Marble can be placed on or near the area that needs healing, either individually or as part of a larger crystal grid.
- Alternatively, Black Zebra Marble can be carried with you throughout the day as a way to stay grounded and centered in times of stress or anxiety.
Whatever method you choose, it’s supposed to enhance Black Zebra Marble’s healing potential and bring overall balance back into your life.
3. Unakite Stone
Unakite is a beautiful gemstone known for its healing and restorative properties. With its soothing shades of green and pink, Unakite is believed to have energizing, detoxifying, and calming effects on the body.
Additionally, Unakite is thought to activate the third eye chakra, clearing out negative energy and opening the mind to new possibilities.
1. Unakite helps to promote emotional balance and harmony. If you are feeling stressed or anxious, hold a piece of Unakite in your hand and take some deep breaths. Focus on the Unakite gem and visualize it filling you with calm and peace.
2. Unakite is also helpful for physical healing. If you are dealing with an injury or illness, place a Unakite gem on the affected area. Visualize the Unakite gem sending healing energy into your body and bringing relief from pain and suffering.
3. You can also use Unakite in meditation. Hold a Unakite gem in your hand and focus on its beauty. Breathe deeply and let go of all your worries and concerns. Allow the Unakite gem to fill you with its calming energy.
4. You can also use Unakite gems in crystal grids or as part of a crystal healing layout. Place the Unakite gem in the center of the grid or layout, surrounded by other stones that support healing such as amethyst, rose quartz
4. Lapis Orgonite Pyramid
This beautiful stone is said to have deep spiritual and energetic effects, helping to reduce physical, emotional, and mental imbalances. Some believe it can even help to protect against negative energy, enhancing mental clarity and helping you feel more centered and grounded.
To use these stones for healing, simply hold them in your hands or place them on your body where you feel they are needed.
You can also create a grid with four rhodonite stones and four lapis lazuli stones, placed at the cardinal points. Place the rhodonite in the north position to represent earth, the lapis lazuli in the south position to represent water, the rhodonite in the east position to represent air, and the lapis lazuli in the west position to represent fire. This simple grid will help to balance and align your energies, promoting health and wellbeing.
5 Red Jasper (Elephant)!
Red jasper is a beautiful red gemstone that has been prized for centuries for its unique color and healing properties. Ancient healers believed that red jasper could help to ease pain, promote fertility, and protect against negative energy.
Today, red jasper is still revered for its ability to calm the mind, ease stress, and promote feelings of well-being. In addition, red jasper is said to boost the immune system, improve circulation, and detoxify the body.
I found it in the shape of an elephant. It is beaten up. I think it’s traveled far and been dropped one too many times. But, it was the only elephant at the show, and I’ve been looking for one ever since my reiki girl told me my nana wanted me to have one – as she loved elephants and had a large collection of them. The trunk up is supposed to be lucky.
What does an elephant represent?
Throughout history, the elephant has been associated with a wide range of beneficial qualities. Not only are these majestic creatures known for their intelligence and extraordinary memory, but they are also often associated with healing powers and good luck.
For example, many cultures associate elephants with compassion and kindness, believing that they can bring harmonious energy into our lives.
Additionally, many people believe that the distinctive shape and texture of an elephant’s ear can help to alleviate pain or draw out negative energy.
And of course, there is the well-known belief that keeping an elephant figurine in your home will bring you good fortune. My nana was on to something!
The day I got this, I dropped it when I got home and it cracked. I’m not sure if that’s a bad thing energetically, but I tried to glue it back on, and as you can see from the picture that didn’t really work well. It didn’t fit back into place perfectly, so there must be some tiny pieces that I missed.
Rhodonite is a beautiful pink crystal that has been used for centuries for its healing properties. According to ancient legend, rhodonite was once used to fashion a statue of Aphrodite, the goddess of love.
Today, rhodonite is still revered for its ability to promote love and emotional balance. It is said to help banish feelings of anger and resentment, making it an excellent stone for those who are struggling to let go of past hurts.
Rhodonite is also believed to boost self-esteem and confidence, encouraging people to pursue their dreams.
In addition to its emotional benefits, rhodonite is also thought to aid in physical healing. It is said to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and speed the healing of wounds.
