As you may have noticed, I love crystals. Who doesn’t? Whether you think they are magic or not, everyone loves crystals, right? The way they sparkle, the way they have formed naturally, that little imperfection that makes each one different from all the others…[Here’s a random thought on a random thought – confused yet? :-)…that last little statement makes me think crystals are little bit like people…each one of us are unique, individual, slightly different from all the rest…]
I fell in love with crystals long before I knew they had magickal properties. I collected them, along with fossils and pebbles from the beach (so much cooler than dolls), and it is from this my life-long love of the natural world stemmed. Even after I came to understand their metaphysical connections, I was still drawn to the science that surrounded them. This precipitated my ‘need’ to get my BSc in Geography. For a while a flitted with the idea of archaeology, or even combining my love of the two subjects in Geoarchaeology, but eventually my need to understand and learn about the natural world won through.
I love to know what a person’s favourite crystal is. This can change as we change, as our needs change, or even as our likes change. What’s your favourite crystal? And what do you think it says about you, if anything?
My favourite crystal at the moment is peacock ore; I love the way the different colours shimmer in the light. What does it mean to me at the present time? I think it tells me to look for that little spark of something special in everything I do, so I can appreciate the small things in life as well as the big things. That way my life will become richer and more vibrant.
