This is the story of how I came to have my very first crystal. A beautiful amethyst and rose quartz bracelet. Still one of my most treasured possessions.
I can’t recall exactly how old I was but it was many years ago. My parents took us to Gold Reef City Theme Park. They had a Precious Gem Shop near the mine there. It’s one of those places that sparkle in every direction with the most beautiful crystals of every variety in every shape and form imaginable. Needless to say I was in my element. I locked eyes with the most amazing bracelet and just knew that I had to have it. Unfortunately it was not cheap and my parents said no immediately. After some convincing on my part they agreed that I could have it. It’s likely the fact that I told them that I couldn’t breathe without it and refused to leave without it that convinced them to buy it in the end though.
Purple has been my favourite colour and amethyst is my birthstone. Not really sure what drew me to it so intensely as a child but it’s still one of my favourite crystals.
It feels only right that I share some of the main qualities of these amazing crystals.
Known for it’s connection to spirituality and the divine. This crystal is a great healer and one of the most highly recommended crystals as it is a calming, healing and protective crystal.
The ‘Love’ crystal. Beautiful, gentle and loving are the exact words that come to mind when I think of rose quartz. This is another one that comes highly recommended.
