My Ongoing Love Affair with Crystals & Stones


This week, please allow me to share with you some thoughts about my crystal collection. Let’s start with the three stones that I actually wear as pendants. Two of them are in fact strung as one pendant (see photos: it’s the more elongated pendant with the bigger blue piece and the much smaller black piece). The other greenish stone is a standalone with the fine copper “tree of life” or “Yggdrasil” patterning across.

The two-stones-in-one are Blue Kyanite and Black Tourmaline.

Blue Kyanite is also known as Blue Disthene or as Blue Cyanite. It is used at the 5th Chakra (Throat) or 6th Chakra (3rd Eye/Brow) for spiritual guidance and for enhancing one’s intuition. Blue Kyanite also promotes peace and compassion, stimulates creative energy, and enhances one’s personal exploration of his or her spiritual nature. This stone is also said to aid in communication with one’s spirit guides, totem animals, and guardian angels.

My personal experience with this stone is that it tends to give me vividly detailed dreams. It has also deepened my appreciation of God and Goddess, angels, faeries, the ascended masters, and other sources of precious, practical wisdom.

The much smaller stone embedded on top of the blue kyanite is the Black Tourmaline. Also known as Schorl or Aphrizite, this stone is used at the 1st Chakra (Root/Base) for protection against electromagnetic pollution and negative energy. It is a grounding stone, increasing physical energy and dispelling negative thoughts. Conversely, it works by enhancing positive thinking and creativity, and also by reducing stress caused by electromagnetic frequencies (the “dreaded” EMFs). Health-wise, Black Tourmaline is said to strengthen the immune system, decrease arthritis pain, and cleanse the physical and ethereal bodies. This stone is “protective coffee” for me: it keeps me awake and perky, and it minimizes negative energy.

Finally, the standalone teardrop-shaped greenish stone with copper wiring is the Labradorite. According to Ms. Valencia Chan’s “Crystal Wisdom Cards,” the keyword for Labradorite is “Magic.” Thus it aids in acts of magic, facilitating astral travel, regression, or ascension, and accessing the Akashic records and other esoteric knowledge. Labradorite, also known as Spectrolite, is used at the 6th Chakra (3rd Eye/Brow) or at the 7th Chakra (Crown) for protection, dispelling fears and negative energies, increasing conscious awareness and faith, and stimulating the imagination and creativity.

Labradorite facilitates intuition and psychic powers, mystical experiences, connection with the Divine energy of the universe, conscious awareness, and companionship. Labradorite balances the physical body with the etheric body. As such, it is said to remove stress, treat symptoms of the common cold, relieve arthritis pain, regulate hormones, and lower blood pressure.

As for my personal experience with my Labradorite: Well, the jury is still out. I bought this pendant to help lower my blood pressure. I haven’t seen my primary care physician yet so I don’t know if my BP is already showing signs of improvement. My BP as of Nov. 2016 was 157/84. The target is 139/89 or lower. I am due to see my doctor sometime soon. I will keep you posted.
