Can I share deep? Some stuff you didn’t know about me…

May 13, 2015Tag, you're it! I got "tagged" by Flora Sage (one of my buddies from YouTube) for an Intuitive Tag/Challenge. This was something we used to do a lot of back in 2007-2011 on YouTube...there was a lot of these different tags that you would get tagged and it was just fun to do them and be a part of this fun of watching everybody else's videos & then doing your own. So it was really fun to revisit & do something like this that I hadn't done in a while. But then I thought I should also post this here on my blog b/c many of you don't follow me on YouTube & in this video I share a lot of.Keep Reading

The Ultimate Guide to Shungite

April 15, 2015Shungite, shungite, shungite! This stuff came out on the new age stone-lovers scene about 3 years ago & made quite the big splash. I'm not sure why it suddenly became so popular but it's not usually listed in the older, more popular crystal property books so people are often left wondering & asking me lots & lots of questions about it. There are numerous web articles out there that make lots of unfounded claims about shungite so I really felt the need to finally get this blog post out there.

COLOR OF THE YEAR: MARSALA ~ 2015 ~ Rubellite, Ruby + Cinnabar

March 11, 2015Hola Crystal Hottie! Today we are going to talk about Pantone's 2015 Color of the Year, which happens to be Marsala. Over the past few years, I've done a video with this theme, finding a crystal that embodies that specific light frequency.
  • 2014- Radiant Orchid
  • 2013- Emerald
Pantone describes Marsala as a "naturally robust & earthy wine red." Since making this video, I've discovered that yes, Marsala is indeed a wine produced in the region surrounding the Italian city of Marsala in Sicily. Man! Marsala was a tough color. Yeah, it was hard to find a crystal that was that exact color that Marsala is because a Pantone Color is very specific. I swear, while I was sitting down to make up this video, I.
