Oh hi there, great to see you again! I’m typing this blog post from my garden patio, soaking up a bit of rare British Springtime sun (Which will no doubt have gone by the time this is posted online 🤣).
It’s absolutely lush and it’s moments like this that make me realise just how fortunate I am. Days like today are what I’ve manifested over the cold, dull winter months. I don’t ask for much, just simple moments of joy 🥰🌼
There’s been a lot of talk about manifestation over the past couple of years, and while I’m still learning, I believe there’s something to it. A bit like crystals – Some people believe they’re just pretty, sparkly rocks formed from years of mineral deposits and chemical reactions… And while that’s certainly true, there’s more to them than just being colourful clumps of whatever.
If you’ve ever been into a crystal shop, or had any form of gemstone jewellery, you may have experienced the shift in energy when you’re holding your crystal close. It may be subtle, but it’s there. Does it make you smile? Feel calm? Lifted? Another type of way? That’s the crystal at work.
Crystals are brilliant tools to help you with meditation and manifestation. If you’re a beginner, then there’s nothing better than a Clear Quartz crystal. It’s known as the “Master Healer” because it helps with literally everything… Seriously. Physical, emotional, mental… Whatever it may be, a Clear Quartz is the most supportive stone you could reach for.
Clear Quartz is known to enhance mental clarity, it aids with memory and concentration, stabilises your emotions (no more weird outbursts in my case 😅) and helps you to be more present in the moment - To be more mindful.
Because it’s the master healer, it helps to balance all the chakras, so if you’re ever feeling a bit “off”, you can take a few moments to sit with your Clear Quartz crystal and you’ll soon start to feel more balanced.
Crystal Quartz also amplifies energy and thought, which is why it is often used for manifestation and mediation to help the wearer achieve their full potential. Whatever you pour into your Clear Quartz crystal, it will give you back tenfold. This is why it’s perfect for manifestation and setting your intentions, and is perfect for amplifying the energy from other crystals when you want to boost their powers.
Clear Quartz is traditionally known as the birthstone for those born in April – Aries or Taurus - So let’s take a look at why this is the perfect gemstone for people who are born into these star signs...
Clear Quartz is the birthstone for those born under the zodiac sign of Aries. The Aries
personality is highly ambitious, passionate and strong, which are all fabulous traits but can lead to burnout without the balance. Clear Quartz provides the peaceful cool touch our Arien pals need to regulate any emotional overdrive.
We often associate the Emerald as being a Taurus birthstone, but Clear Quartz is up there as one of the best for our Taurean friends. Loyal, strong, romantic, sassy, stubborn hardworking dreamers.
A Clear Quartz crystal is their perfect companion because it provides emotional stability and helps them manifest their dreams into a reality through clear thinking. Clear quartz also helps a Bull be more flexible in changing situations, giving the gentle nudge they sometimes need when it comes to getting out of their own stubborn way.
How to incorporate Clear Quartz Crystals into your life?
As a jewellery maker, I think you already know what I’m going to say 🤣
Clear Quartz is perfect as a pendant, which will keep the stone close to your head and heart – great for mental and emotional clarity.
Take a look at our Clear Quartz Raw Birthstone necklace, which is available in Gold Filled and Sterling Silver. This raw gemstone necklace will make the perfect gift for a loved one, or even yourself because you're a Queen and you deserve it!
That’s it for our spotlight on Clear Quartz – Next month will be all about the not-so-famous Sillimanite. I promise you she’s a beauty 😍
