 QuartzCrystal1 Crystals   December Cauldron Chat

December Caldron Chat Topic: CRYSTALS – Do you use crystals for spells, rituals, around the house, or in other ways?   What is your favorite crystal and-or semi precious stones?  What experiences have you had with crystals?

Welcome and Join In the first Cauldron Chat – a new feature here at Blissful Moon: a monthly topic for discussion that everyone is invited to join in – either by leavig a comment, or a link to a post about the topic (and I’ll add the link to the post).  Feel free to grab the button from the side bar. 

My favorite crystal is Amethyst – it is purple and that is my favorite color.  But besides the color, it is the stone I am most drawn too and just “feels” right for me.   I also like the combination – amethyst, smoky quartz, and moonstone; and of course amber and jet is a favorite too (I have one necklace made from amber and jet beads that I cherish).

I use crystals for healing work, meditation and all around the house.  I have several spheres, eggs, heart shaped stones and clusters of various stones and crystals in various rooms throughout the house (too many to list).  I recently acquired a lovely “record keeper” crystal and I’m looking forward to exploring and learning more about this crystal.  I am also in the process of gathering the crystals needed for a House Blessing With Crystals ritual that I am planning in the near future.

Most of time I find that I pick out a stone or crystal by my intuition (does the stone “call to me” or how does it “feel”), if I do acquire it then I look up the symbology and what the various uses are.  I always find the information interesting and useful, and is especially helpful when selecting a stone as a gift for someone else or when trying to decide which stones for a medicine bag or healing amulet bag.    For me I think the “magic” in the stones and crystals are how they “speak” to the individual that chose it.  I have a few large, expensive pieces, but I don’t think size or cost is a factor for how magical or powerful a stone is.  Simple, untumbled crystals are wonderful too.   Plain river rocks or stones found on the beach or in the forest can also be very powerful allies for strength, grounding and protection. 

I love learning about crystals and stones.  I invite you to share your experiences, knowledge, questions about crystals and stones.

Bright Blessings, Lady Rose

  2. I used to say I didn’t have enough time in my life to also learn about crystals, there was sooo much once I started learning more about energy healing and now, Reiki in the last several years. So I was ‘sent’ a woman who was comfortable with crystals and knowledgeable enough that I learned a lot in a very short period of time. Favorites: selenite (it makes me giggle and shiver when there’s a lot of it on a table at a holistic fair or mineral show, I think I could locate it blindfolded), egg-shaped almost anything, rainbow moonstone, Cape May diamonds (quartz found at Sunset Beach, Cape May, NJ…very shivery, special feel from this, also, whether polished clear or just out of the ocean – and at the same time, it is so calming.) This is not to say I don’t love many other crystals and find that there are new ones I am drawn to every several years. I interpret these new “favorites” as being the ones I need at that time. There was a time, many years ago now, when I just could not walk past a piece of smoky quartz. I still like it but don’t feel as compelled towards it as I did.

  3. I L O V E crystals and stones; my faves include clear quartz, amethyst, rainbow moonstone, and hematite, but the one that I have been the most attracted to for the past year or so is Labradorite.

    I use my stones and crystals to hold during meditation, in chakra work, in candle magick, around the home and office, and I have a few jewelry pieces that I love to wear for healing, protection, and just because I love them :)

    • I like hematite too and have a few pieces of labradorite – very nice stone. I went a bit overboard at a music fair over the summer – there was a vendor that had just amber jewelry – I had never seen all the colors of amber before – I ended up bying a ring, a bracelet and a necklace (with small pieces of all the colors of amber including green) – I wear these pieces a lot just because I adore how they look and the magical properties of the amber and silver are a bonus.
