Hemingway's IcebergEffectively Clearing New Crystals and Gemstones
Best Ways to Clear Your Gemstones and Crystals
By Kellie Jo Conn, GG

Sometimes a stone or crystal you are strongly drawn to doesn’t feel good, or a stone that felt good previously doesn’t feel good now. The stone or crystal may need to be cleared.

Using Gemstones

EmeraldGemstones and Crystals
By Skye Alexander

Long before people began prizing gems for their monetary value, they used them as magic charms. In early societies, only rulers, members of royal families, priests, and religious leaders wore gems. According to Nancy Schiffer, author of The Power of Jewelry, our ancestors believed gemstones were “capable of human feelings and passions so that they could express jealousy and shock.” Today, adornment is the primary reason for wearing precious and semiprecious gems; however, a growing number of people (especially magicians) realize that crystals and gemstones can also be used for healing, spell-working, divination, shamanic journeying, meditation, and dowsing.

Some believed that dreaming of lapis would foretell love that would be forever faithful.

When working or meditating with Lapis Lazuli, it Continue reading
