Healing crystals and stones come in all sizes, colors and shapes.
Each crystal has a unique vibrational resonance which is derived from their mineral content, shape and the colour frequency they emit. Every healing crystal has its own energy vibration. The energy of the crystal can have powerful effects on the energy vibrations within a person.

Ugh. More Crystal Fakes to Discuss

Yep, we’ve got more Crystal Fakes and misrepresentations to go over today.

Once again…

I’m so grateful to my Certified Crystal Practitioner students who bring this stuff to my attention! (That’s usually how I keep my finger on the pulse of this crystal fakes stuff.)

Several years ago I noted that there seemed to be a bit of an info-gap in our crystal community on some good, solid, easy-to-understand data regarding this sort of thing.

Informing our community on this topic has become yet another passion of mine. Being a former science department head, having studied geology at the Masters’s level, and being a crystal author plus the founder of the Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy, with a relatively large following gives me a good reason and platform to educate about crystal fakes.

Before we get started… I’ve got the PERFECT free gift to go along with carnelian today: my Juicy, Creative Sacral Chakra Guided Meditation. 

Historically, carnelian has been referenced in the bible as one of the gemstones that adorned the breastplate of the High Priest and the Breastplate of Aaron.

Anthropologists have also found carnelian in ancient jewelry dating back to old Egypt and ancient Rome.  You’ll often see rich orange-red pieces inlaid in rings or pendants in museums around the world.

Or used in other unique ways…

Fouling up Afghanistan’s Lapis Lazuli Mines

lapis lazuli

Before we get into the whole of Afghanistan’s Lapis Lazuli Mines topic…

First, I will set some ground rules for myself and ask that you kindly keep to the same in any commenting (these are pretty much the rules I stick to for what I post about, in general, so I can discern if it’s within the realm of what our community is expecting to learn from me and also not contribute to any division or separation… certain topics have a way of doing that even if it’s not the original intention)

Ground Rules

  1. No political discussion – please put politics aside
  2. No religious discussion – please put religion aside
  3. No vaccine discussion – please put opinions aside (WTH does that have to do with this topic? I don’t know — but somehow, lately, it ends up sneaking into everything so I’m just putting it out there… stay off this topic here too.)
  4. No bringing up the general ethics of mining minerals (I’ve already written an opinion piece on that topic here, feel free to dive in deep and comment there on that — […]
