Have you ever taken a bath with a crystal or gemstone?
It might sound strange at first to think about putting stones in your bath tub, this is just one more way of receiving the healing benefits that gemstones can offer us.
What do you look forward to after a long stressful day at work? Coming home and taking a long, hot bath, right? We all know that soaking in a tub after a hard day helps to melt away the stress, so adding soothing, calming stones like Lepidolite, Larimar, or Kunzite to your bath water will help calm and relax you after the day from “hell”.
Here is my favorite recipe for a relaxing bath:
- Place a piece of Lepidolite into the tub allowing the water to run over it as the tub fills. If you have more than one piece you can add them too.
This year’s Denver Gem Show was another fabulous year, with all of the same dealers and several new ones to explore. I found some great new stones this year, which always makes the show worth going to. I never know just what l’ll find or what will entice me. This year was no exception in fine quality crystals, gemstones, minerals, beads and jewelry. I came home with boxes and boxes of glorious new treasures from Mother Earth.
It takes days and days to unpack all the new stones. This year I set up several tables outdoors on my deck and laid out and unpacked all the goodies. The stones enjoy being outside in the sunlight, and so do I. It’s a slow process, sorting, organizing, pricing and admiring these natural beauties. So many of the new stones are from countries all around the world. >> Continue reading

Lotus flowers are associated with the 7 main Chakra energy centers. Each Chakra has a different shape lotus flower.

Coralcalcite is a combination of Coral and Calcite, found in South Florida. The structure and patterns of the Coral are still visibly. Over the years Calcite has come in and covered over the coral. Coralcalcite is a beautiful blending of the animal and mineral kingdom.
I was first introduced to CoralCalcite in 2010 when Robert Simmons, author of The Book of Stones showed me several pieces he found while vacationing in Florida. I immediately felt a connection to these pieces. I spend the winter months in the Florida Keys and had seen these stones before, but I didn’t know if it was Coral or Calcite or what special properties it held. Through meditation Robert discovered the wonderful healing qualities theses stones hold.
Coralcalcite can assist in enhancing the level of vibration and harmony of the entire body, enabling us to become more crystalline. Coralcalcite stimulates the solar plexus Chakra, our place of will, aiding in focusing our attention and intention so that we can accomplish our goals. >> Continue reading
