Excuse us while we go a bit hippie dippy on you, but were you aware that your beautiful gemstone jewellery might also have some healing crystal energy to share? (All the hot yogi-types on Insta are talking about it…) So if you feel like you could use some extra love vibes, positive juju or balance in your life (courtesy of a statement accessory), we’ll give you the lowdown on some of our faves.
Rose quartz: This pretty pink gem is also called the ‘heart sone’ because it’s all about unconditional love – attracting it and keeping it. Wear it when you need to boost your self-love and bring about a sense of peace and calm. Or slip it on before a hot date!
Dalmatian Jasper: One look at this spotty stone should tell you where it got its name – and just like the puppy, it’s a mix of protective and playful. Thought to counter negative energy, this healing stone helps to strengthen relationships and boost positive vibes.
Amethyst: If calm, balance and peace are things you could use more of in your everyday, consider an amethyst. This purple stone has a gentle energy that promotes peacefulness, happiness and emotional stability, and is a good one to keep with you while meditating.
Clear quartz: These crystals are quite common but they have a strong energy that can help bring clarity to your communication (hello, important work presentation!), enhance your thoughts (very handy if you believe in manifesting) and boost your spirituality.
Turquoise: This ye’ olde stone (it’s one of the most ancient) is though to carry lots of wisdom and protective powers. It’s also a rock of friendship and joy – and a helpful source of calm if you’re feeling stressed out and under the pump.
Green amazonite: Feel like you could use a confidence boost? Green amazonite is a stone of truth, honour, communication, integrity, hope and trust – it’s said to be beneficial for improving communication, lessening stress and building self-esteem.
Pyrite: It’s often called ‘fool’s gold’ but pyrite is still valuable! It’s known as a protective, shielding stone and can help guard against physical and emotional harm. It can also inspire creativity and promote good physical health and wellbeing.
