The first time I remember buying a crystal was probably around the age of 10- I was in Sidney, BC on Vancouver Island. My brother and I were on vacation with our grandparents on their boat and we docked at the harbour there. There was (and still is!) a gemstone store right by the marina that we ventured into. I remember getting a vial that you could fill up with a bunch of raw, tiny crystals- amethyst, quartz, pyrite. I loved all the colours and intricacies and thought it was so cool that it came from the Earth!
Wearing crystals gives meaning to your jewelry. It's your talisman and armour, it's how you go out into the world- your intention. With jewelry you can take that 'vibration' everywhere- carrying it within a crystal, such a beautiful form.
Crystals are a personal journey. The meanings that different pieces carry can vary for everyone.
