Your love of crystals can be a game changer when it comes to attracting someone special, building friendships, or healing family rifts. Formed deep in the earth where their energy is said to come from, crystals not only look beautiful, they encourage positive vibes, and work hand in hand with Feng Shui principles.

Crystals are said to help you find and sustain love, and create positive influence at home and work. So, where’s the best place to start when it comes to making the most of these precious gems?

Ashley Bellino of Stoned Crystals says these are the best to stones to help nurture a new world of romance and wellbeing.

Rose Quartz

Heart Chakra

Rose Quartz is considered the stone of unconditional Love. It challenges you to seek youth, peace, beauty, art, music, written word and most of all love. Perhaps you have been feeling down, disillusioned, worried, or a little cynical. A seed planted in bad soil will not grow, and our personal seeds of love will shrivel if we plant them in soil that lacks the nutrients of self love and self esteem.

To experience the flowering of love in our lives, we must first love ourselves. Rose Quartz gently penetrates into the inner chambers of the heart chakra and where it witnesses trauma, it empathises, understands and promotes the heart’s ability to give and receive love. What changes would you make if you believed that you were completely responsible for the presence of love in your life? What friendships would you heal? How would you treat the man who bumps into you on the subway or the receptionist who gives you incorrect change? By placing rose quartz in the heart of the home it allows for love and kindness to flow freely drawing children and adults alike.

Live from your heart, forgive in your relationships and forget old flames to make way for the new. By dissolving jealously, bitterness and guilt Rose will restore the yin to your yang.

Clear Quartz

Crown Chakra

Clear Quartz is attracted into one’s life to facilitate that particular person’s growth of awareness. By picking this stone you are unconsciously looking for a beacon of light that will help to show and guide your way.

Energy blockages in your mind and body from past experiences are being untangled and released. As you become wiser, this stone will aid in giving you the patience to learn about what you truly value within yourself and also in others. The process can be unsettling, as we often initially become more aware of what you don’t want, rather than what you do want – purify your mind. I will make things clear to you, my gift is patience and focus.

Look at things from a new and positive perspective, free from judgment. Learn to live with love and make peace in the things you say and do.

Amazonite

Heart and Throat Chakra

Amazonite is a brilliant stone for those who are looking to repair or ignite an existing relationship. Its soothing jade colour resonates with the Heart Chakra and balances out emotional energy.

By putting this stone in the space where you relax or meditate, it will help to deal with upsetting or conflicting emotions. Amazonite contains a powerful energy that will help you avoid internalising the negative moods of others. It invites you to access truth and express yourself with peace and love – a gentle soothing stone, it alleviates fear, helping you to see both sides of the problem.

Delicate matters can be difficult to speak truthfully about. Amazonite has an energy that will assist you to find the right words communicate your thoughts from a higher perspective.
