Crystal Haul

crystal haul

I went to one of the BSSK mind, body, spirit fairs on Saturday and, amongst other things, I picked up some lovely new crystals.  I’ve written before about some of the crystals I own and I know a lot of you are also interested in them so I thought I’d share these with you.

The first piece I chose was this opalite crystal skull:

I’ve got a couple of pieces of opalite but I was particularly drawn to this piece as it has been carved into a skull.  I got a red jasper skull for Christmas and it’s one of my favourite crystals.  Unfortunately, the photograph doesn’t really do it justice but you can get an idea of the beautiful rainbow shades in this crystal.  Opalite is said to help bring peace and can also help with stabilising mood swings.

The second piece I bought was this scarab beetle dumortierite pendant:

Prior to Saturday, I’d never heard of this crystal – I actually thought it was a piece of sodalite when I originally picked it up.  Dumortierite is said to help with intellectual endeavours so I’ll be wearing it when I start researching and writing my dissertation over the next few weeks.

The final piece I bought is really beautiful and again, another crystal I hadn’t heard of before:

vera cruz amethyst

Apparently, Vera Cruz amethyst is quite rare as the Vera Cruz mine in Mexico where it is found has been closed down for some years.  This pendant has been wrapped in copper wire and I think it was the almost rustic nature of the design that really caught my eye.  This crystal is said to have very high vibrational energy and aids meditation.

I was initially a little disappointed as I went with the intention of buying a red jasper ring but couldn’t find one anywhere!  However, I ended up discovering two new crystals and buying three pieces I really love.

Do you have favourite crystals and how have they helped you?

 I’d love to hear your experiences, so please let me know in the comments below.
