1.) Green Aventurine-A silicon dioxide** mineral, known as the “Good Luck” stone, this beautiful crystal not only can help your heart, but also known for bringing abundance! ***** This is a crypto-crystalline with a Moh’s hardness of 7 making it a durable crystal for jewelry making. It represents the elements of Water and Earth and works with the Heart or 4th Chakra. It gets its color from particles of Fuchsite in it, certainly lends the sparkly to the crystal. This crystal’s amazing energy can help you grow new patterns, while giving you that earthy stability during emotional turmoil. Helps to stimulate the energy flow!*
2) Emerald- A beryl type crystal, the symbol of fertility, associated with Venus. The Emerald has been referenced for many years such as the Emerald Isle, possibly the Holy Grail, the Sacred Emerald Tablet is supposedly inscribed with information about Transformation and Enlightenment. Found to have been used before 1300 BC. To learn why jewelers should have it on their benches watch the video from Astro-Babble on the Full Moon in Virgo aired March 11 2022, to find out why! Associated with the 4th Heart Chakra*, it symbolizes unconditional love and compassion. With courage and an open heart allows a closer connection to Divine Love. It is as well a stone of abundance, with a Moh’s hardness of 7.5-8 making it a suitable crystal for jewelry.
28) Fuchsite- This stone gets its green color from chromium, with a Moh’s hardness of 2.5**** making it a fragile rock. Don’t let the fragileness fool you as this crystal offers powerful energy. It is associated with the Astrological sign of Aquarius. Found in Brazil, russia and Norway. It works with the 4th or Heart Chakra. It gets its shininess from mica and grows in tabular crystals but mostly forms layers and masses. This crystal is great to have on hand for physical as well as emotional pain***. This is my go-to stone for emergency pain*. As it is that beautiful spring green, I would not be using this stone if cancer is an issue for you (won’t create cancer but can offer support for it to grow). Generally for clients* I recommend 3x a day, not more than 1 hour each time and no longer than 2 weeks!
