Crystal Meanings

May your life be full of magic! 

Hands up if you have ever bought a crystal because you are mesmerised by its shape and colour? GUILTY! 

Although we all know and appreciate the natural beauty and colours crystals withhold, they also are unique with nature and transmitters of energy and vibrations due to perfectly symmetrical atom pattern called a crystal lattice!

As humans, our atomic makeup is a little all over the place due to the craziness of getting caught up in daily routines, stress from things we can and can't control and busy lifestyles we lead, so having a crystal close, harmonises our auras and re balances our atoms, bringing calmness to our mind, body and soul and we can channel crystals energy to provide help and support where we feel we're lacking, giving us the boost of magic we need in our lives.
