    peace and brotherhood. Angelite facilitates contact with your angels
    and spirit guides and helps to connect with your higher self. It
    enhances psychic healing and telepathic communication and enables astral
    travel and spirit journeys.


    Angelite will help you regenerate and rejuventae your life and help you come alive.


    Angelite
    is a stone that can bring serenity, inner peace, and a sense of calm.
    Angelite is excellent to use when you need to calm down from feelings of
    stress and overwhelm. Angelite dispeals fear, anger, and encourages
    forgiveness. It is an excellent stone to be used by those who have
    communication difficulties like problems in self expression.

    is a powerful stone for healers. It also provides protection for the
    environment or the body.

    conditions like insomnia. One may keep angelite tumbled stones at the
    four corners of the bed and ask the angels to protect you as you sleep.


    If
    you feel your angeltite needs to be cleansed, it should never be
    cleansed by water or especially salt as water and salt will damage
    angelite. I would suggest smudging, or placeing it in moon light for
    cleansing.

    Crystals By Rob: http://www.crystalsbyrob.com

    Drusy Quartz is rated at 7 on the Moh’s Scale of Hardness and is best suited for pendants, brooches, and earrings rather then rings and bracelets because of the concern of the Drusy being detached.
    Drusy’s are gemstones with a natural surface texture much like fine sugar crystals that formed on the Quartz by the phenomena of micro-crystalline facets millions of years ago. Drusy crystals went unnoticed in the jewelry world until recently, when they began appearing in the work of noted carvers and jewelry designers. The appeal is now starting to grow for Drusy Quartz jewelry as it displays a multitude of tiny crystals with a reflective surface reminiscent of sugar or snow.
    The size and evenness of the crystal coverage are both important value factors when determining the quality and worth of Drusy Quartz items.
    When ground water carrying dissolved silica is forced into a porous area of the rock, rapid cooling often occurs, causing the formation of tiny crystals on the surfaces or in cavities of the rock. The clear crystals often form on top of previously deposited minerals. This is called a drusy.



    Titanium drusy is drusy that has been coated with titanium in a vacuum chamber. It produces a permanent metal coating in spectacular shades of dark blue, magenta or an iridescent white.

    Fenster quartz gets its name from the complex interior skeletal structure which has created many windows and chambers within the crystal. The name is derived from the German word "Fenster", meaning window. The unique formation is caused by internal and external dissolution growth which is the result of unstable conditions during crystallization. Light reflects from the interior planes creating dancing patterns of light as you turn the crystal in your hand. The crystals have grown in a very similar formation as a Herkimer diamond in combination with elestial formations. For this reason, these crystals are also known as Elestial Lightkeepers.



    The energy of Fenster Quartz is thought to be quite complex and high in vibration, reaching to the spiritual plane, and stimulating the third eye and crown chakras. They are also meant to assist you to channel the pure white light of the universe into the physical world, providing the opportunity for profound healings on both the emotional and physical levels. They're said to assist with evolution of the spirit, assisting you to vibrate on a higher plane at all levels of your existence, and restoring energy flow and balance at all levels. Fenster Quartz is also said to help you shed old emotional attachments allowing you to move forward on your spiritual path. Meditation with these crystals is thought to assist you to move through time and space like portals to other dimensions which is believed to facilitate deep karmic work with past lives.


    Fenster crystals are excellent facilitators during any healing session.


    Quartz is known as the most powerful healing and energy amplifier on the planet because of it's unique helical spiral crystaline structure. Is used as an energy stabiliser and amplifier within all electrical equipment for this very reason. Most modern watches wouldn't work without it either. If you ever needed a scientific basis for crystal healing, there it is. Quartz absorbs, stores, releases, and regulates energy and is excellent for unblocking it. When acupuncture needles are coated in Quartz, the effects increase by an estimated ten percent. Has been demonstrated by a Kirlian camera that holding a Quartz crystal in your hand doubles your biomagnetic field. It enhances muscle testing and protects against radiation. It also generates electromagnetism and dispels static electricity. On less empirically proven levels, Quartz is believed to cleanse and enhance the organs and subtle bodies and act as a deep soul cleanser, connecting the physical dimension with the mind. Spiritually, Quartz raises energy to the highest possible level. Enhances psychic ability and attunes you to your spiritual purpose. Mentally, Quartz aids concentration and unlocks memory.


    Quartz is good for use with any condition, stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. Which is why it's known as 'the master healing stone'.

    Opal is a stone of inspiration which enhances the imagination and creativity as well. It helps one release inhibitions and enhances the memory.
    Opal is also said to be a very spiritual stone, and can help one be "invisible" in situations where they don't care to be noticed. It has been known to bring happy dreams, and also to ease the process of change.


    Opal is a silicate, containing water, correlating with our emotions. Clarifies by amplifying and mirroring feelings, buried emotions, desires (including love and passion). With this comes less inhibition, more spontaneity, free visualization, clearer imagination, and more vivid dreams.


    Fire: This is an enhancer of personal power, awakening the inner fire, as well as protection against danger. It is a symbol of hope, an energy amplifier, facilitating change and process. It supports through emotional turmoil, and is a wonderful stone in releasing and letting go of the past.


    Blue: the ultimate stone for all forms of wishes, for entering the world of the fae (fairies) and for seeing beyond the immediate physical reality to the wonders within nature and life.


    Blue-Green (Chrysopal): This opal will open one to new impressions and encourages openness in others. It will help one to observe the world with new eyes, and it alleviates emotional burdens.


    Green: This is beneficial for cleansing and rejuvenating that promotes emotional recovery and aides relationships. It has the ability to filter information and reorient the mind, thus giving it a better meaning to every day life, and bring about a clearer spiritual prospective.


    Pink: Promotes a feeling of centeredness, as a spiritual level this opal actives clairvoyance and clairsentience. It can be particularly helpful in healing head aches caused by blocked or unopened third eye chakras.


    Black: Is known to enhance sexual attractiveness, as well as leading one to a higher spiritual experience. One of the strongest good luck stones. It is told to transform the fears that hold us back from action into optimism and an eagerness to get on with our lives.


    Blue Peruvian Opal: Relatively rare and comes from the Andes in Peru, it is a moderately translucent stone with a blue-green color quite similar to the Caribbean Sea. This stone has soft relaxing energies, and lore tells us that it has the ability to remove the tension from any communication to help ideas to flow freely. It is told to soften the impact of stress from the outside world, helping one to release the trauma of old wounds, facilitating facing the future with a tranquil self healing nature. It is good for quieting the mind and helpful in aiding sleep.


    Pink Peruvian Opal: Despite it's natural color, this is not a soft pillow-y kind of energy, but rather incredibly vibrant and stimulating. It raises ones spirit and elevates the mood. This "euphoria" is not the kind that you lose your thought process, but it more attunes you to the natural pulse of love, which of course brings about the shift in attitude, mood and mind. Which in turn helps in balancing the art of giving and receiving. Often we are drawn to one or the other, and have trouble balancing...this opal will help one to see that both side (like ying & yang) are necessary and both are needed for wholeness.
