The Crystal of the Day Sunday 8 December 2013 is Ruby as it corresponds with the Sun.  The ruby is considered to be the most powerful gem in the universe, and is associated with many astral signs. To own a ruby is said to have contentment and peace. Placed under a pillow the ruby may ward off bad dreams. Ruby rings should be worn on the left hand so as to receive the life force and have protection. Given as a gift, the ruby is a symbol of friendship and love. The ruby is also the symbol of vitality and royalty.

The Ruby is filled with love. It also helps sexual love to be more passionate. Persons lacking in self-love should have and mediate on the Ruby. It also gives the courage to be best potential that a person has.

Ruby works with the flow of blood as an aid to circulation. It aids the cleansing and removal of infection or germs in the blood. The Ruby may be worn in jewelry, but never close to the solar plexus, as the Ruby has a disquieting effect upon it. In a ring wear it on your left hand.

The color of rubies varies from vermilion to red. The most desired color is “pigeon’s blood”, which is pure red with a hint of blue. If the color is too pink, the stone is a pink sapphire. The same is true if it is too violet – it is a violet sapphire. The best rubies and star rubies are bright red.

Birthstone:  July (December, ancient)
Zodiac:  Capricorn

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.
