The Crystal of the Day for Saturday 23 November 2013 is Lapis Lazuli which corresponds with Saturn, Saturday’s planet.  Lapis lazuli is an ancient gem, and as such, has a storied history. Egyptian cultures made a practise of burying a lapis lazuli scarab with their dead, and believed it to offer protection. The very earliest cultures valued lapis lazuli more highly than gold. Greeks spoke of an ancient sapphire which was included with gold, and this was unmistakenly lapis. Some believed that dreaming of lapis would foretell love that would be forever faithful.

When working or meditating with Lapis Lazuli, it can bring matters more clearly to the mind. It is one of the most powerful stones and should be used with care. Wearing a Lapis Lazuli ring can help you to become a channel. The ancient Egyptians used Lapis Lazuli as a symbol of Truth.

Lapis Lazuli is used with other stones when parts of the body need to be purified and cleansed and should be only used by a healer. Lapis Lazuli has high intensity and can open many of the chakra centres. This must be done only with love in the heart and comprehension in the mind and wisdom in soul.

The Crystal of the Day Sunday 27 October 2013

The Crystal of the Day Sunday 27 October 2013 is Chalcantite. Chalcanthite Crystals are lab-grown on a piece of pumice, with prism-like crystals in deep, uniform transparent cobalt blue. Many of the crystals are twinned, embedded, and come in many sizes – and they have even formed in some of the nooks on the underside of the pumice.

Chalcanthite, whose name derives from the Greek, chalkos and anthos, meaning ‘copper flower’, is a richly-colored blue/green water-soluble sulfate mineral, commonly found in the late-stage oxidation zones of copper deposits. Due to its ready solubility, chalcanthite is more frequently found in greater abundance in arid regions.

Clusters symbolise community and promote harmony, balance, friendship, group and familial cooperation. They can both transmit and receive energy. Clusters remove negativity from their environment because of their multiple points, so they are excellent to place in your healing space, office or home. Clusters can be used to charge and to cleanse other crystals by placing them carefully upon the cluster and letting it go to work!
A twin crystal is formed when two or more individual crystals grow along side each other. They facilitate the building of relationships on all levels, acting to encourage encounters with the soul-mate(s) present during this lifetime. They helps you to create a balance between your outer manifestation and inner being, so that they are not in opposition and are manifested as movements of the same energy flow. Twin crystals promote the recognition that love gives freedom, bringing the related synthesis of love and freedom to the level of understanding. Twin crystals are also useful for melding the consciousness of groups and for encouraging Universal love.

Chalcanthite can be used to eliminate feelings of abandonment and confinement, and can assist in continuing towards your goals without restraint. It is an excellent mineral for activation of your Throat Chakra, bringing smooth flow to communication and elocution in all situations. Use Chalcanthite to assist you in making choices, as the energy of this mineral tends to reflect the choice of preference, eliminating confusing distractions!

Physically, Chalcanthite has been used in the treatment of arthritis, to reduce the presence of free-radical oxides, to cleanse the arteries, to alleviate water retention, and to treat disorders of the reproductive system.
