What Do You Know About Crystals ?
I have to admit to not knowing a huge amount, and I think because of that I am well qualified to talk to most people on the subject! What I do know is it is a huge subject and something people study for a lifetime. As this is such a huge subject, we will start here with a pretty basic guide.
What are crystals ?
Crystals are minerals formed underground from three-dimensional repeating patterns of atoms. A crystal’s appearance depends upon the natural characteristics of its type and the conditions in which it grows. Some take on strange shapes, some are very small and others grow very large, developing over thousands of years. Because of their unique structure these stones also hold energy and have different vibrational energy levels, which means that they all posses different qualities.
What are some of the qualities of different crystals?
Good question ! I didn’t know where to start with this so I am going with the ones that are on my desk in front of me right now and in the image above.
Rose Quartz is a pink quartz crystal whose meaning is about love, as it is a stone that epitomises the vibration of love.

One of my favourites. Tiger’s Eye is a stone of protection that is also very stabilising and grounding. It enhances integrity, willpower, self-confidence, practicality and correct use of power. It is a stone that enhances good luck, and brings prosperity, often in the form of money. Tiger’s eye is also a very protective stone which is especially protective during travel. It can also help one see clearly without illusion.
Stones resonate with the vibration of truth and enlightenment, and are powerful intense blue stones for opening the third eye and stimulating the pineal gland.The more blue in the stone, the more valued it has always been.

Lapis Lazuli is a useful stone to wear as it is said to relieve anger and negative thoughts, as well as easing frustrations causing the anger.They resonate with the energy of the inner king or queen, and are historically stones of royalty, and this crystal also helps to balance the masculine and feminine aspects of your personality.
What to do next….
In my experience once you start to collect a few stones it becomes a little bit addictive and stones come in and out of your life at particular times. I am more drawn to the feel of the energy than anything else. Go out, find some, pick a few and then after you have bought, them check the meanings. You may be surprised as to which stones you were drawn to.
