This is an excellent crystal for meditation because it helps us to settle in and become one with the universe.
Tiger’s Eye - A stone of protection, aptly named for the brown-and-bronze banding that can remind us of the striped patterns of tigers moving through the dappled shadows of the jungle. Tiger’s eye was said to be worn by Roman soldiers for protection during battle and was also used as a talisman against curses and evil wishes. For these reasons, it can help shield us from negative energies and ground us into the vibrational frequencies of the earth, also enabling us to draw up the power embedded within the solid foundations of this planet. At the same time, the golden hues of tiger’s eye and its ability to catch the light can also remind us of the sun, bringing this light energy down to earth and enabling us to integrate this into our bodies.
Titanium Aura- This is a form of clear quartz that has been bonded in a laboratory with titanium and gold, giving it an iridescent sheen and rainbows over a darker base. The alchemy of the interaction between the quartz, gold, and titanium gives this form of aura quartz a strong vibration for cleansing, breaking free of limitations, and healing old and outdated self-beliefs that may prevent growth. This is an intensely karmic crystal that helps us to achieve our highest potential by viewing our life as a continual process of transmutation, using the old to create the new.
Tourmalinated Quartz- This is a powerfully amplified crystal of protection in a strong, no-nonsense way. Spears of black tourmaline float in the expansive energy of clear quartz, bringing together the grounded energy of tourmaline and the activation energy of clear quartz. Together, these crystals can help you to transmute your negative beliefs into positive ones, making it a powerful support when undergoing shadow work and healing of old wounds.
Tree Agate - This is an excellent crystal for connecting ourselves to the magic and the wisdom of the Earth, particularly with the wisdom of the trees who can show us when to stand strong, when to bend in the wind, how to stretch ourselves always towards the sunlight, and how to delve our roots deep enough to crack through even the toughest stone. This stone is deeply connected to the element of earth, which represents the material plane, the physical, all that it means to be embodied in physical bodies here on this planet. Tree agate is a powerful stone for bringing abundance into your life. It facilitates seeing opportunities and gaining the motivation to overcome every challenge that may come in your way.
Turquoise - Said to be most lucky and powerful if it is gifted to you, turquoise connects us to our heart and the space between the heart and throat chakras and how speaking our truth is an act of pure love. Long used as a protective stone, it helps to clear all chakras and purify thoughts and actions. Connect with turquoise when you are feeling lost or unsure of your path, as this crystal will help you to determine your pathway forward and connect your mind, heart, and soul.
White Onyx - This is a spiritual stone that helps to connect us more deeply to our minds and strengthen our mental prowess. These are very important characteristics for those with strong Air element energy in their charts, or when we are feeling intense activation of our minds and thoughts. If you’re finding it a bit hard to have confidence in your mind and thoughts, white onyx will help you to overcome that stress and stay focused on your goals. It can help support you in staying true to yourself, even when you feel down or tired, by giving you an extra energetic spark for your potential.
Yellow (Golden, Pineapple) Calcite- This variety of calcite is a brighter, happier yellow than orange or honey calcite, helping it to resonate with the solar plexus chakra. This is the site in our bodies for connection with our will, our drive, and our egoic essence that makes us who we are and inspires us to take actions in life. It helps to stimulate both the mind and the will, enabling us to take inspired action on the things that matter most to us. In particular, by placing yellow calcite on the solar plexus chakra, you can help to stimulate a renewed sense of optimism and hope for the future, even when all has seemed impossible.
Zebra Jasper- This crystal is renowned for its ability to help the wearer achieve their goals by inspiring motivation and focus. It can help us to become unstuck when we’re a little too prone to sit on the couch and relax instead of getting our butts into gear to get what needs done, done! No more apathy when zebra jasper is around; this makes it a powerful stone to help with times of depression, when we may need a little extra support to be able to engage with activities of life. When there is something blocking our way forward, zebra jasper can help us to problem-solve and overcome the issue or situation, thereby moving forward with new vigor and strength. In this way, zebra jasper can help us to see into the depths of a situation and go past masks or initial impressions or assumptions.
