CRYSTALS: Smelted Quartz

QUESTION: Do you know anything about smelted clear quartz and what it can be programed for? The combo is melted clear quarts with melted copper. It turns the quartz blue? Thank you! Light and love.
ANSWER: Thanks for your question. The combination of Quartz and Copper is excellent for aligning the meridians. We use Copper wands for this purpose, as you can see above, the copper wand is combined with Quartz at the tip and end and also has Quartz chips within the wand! Copper is an excellent conductor of energy, and Quartz keeps things in the positive healing realm. Together you can align the meridians, which are like the veins of your energy body, feeding the chakras (which are like the organs of your energy body).
Always remember to clean, charge and program your crystals before use!

CRYSTALS: Indian Amethyst

CRYSTALS: Moldavite

Moldavite is a glassy green stone. It was formed by a meteorite impact on the earth and is a very rare stone. At this time there are only four mines in the Czech Republic that are mining the stone, which is predicted to run out in less than 10 years!

Metaphysical, Moldavite is known to raise our vibrational rate and thus connect us with spiritual realms and higher powers than the ones on earth. It is also popularly thought to link ourselves with communications with extra-terrestrials.


QUESTION: Hi, what stones are good for sleep?

ANSWER: Hi there, a great crystal for sleep is Amethyst. Amethyst is a purple Quartz corresponding tot he upper chakras (crown and third eye). It should be programmed for anything having to do with the head - headaches, earaches, vertigo, insomnia, etc...The best way is to keep pieces of Amethyst under your pillow to help you sleep.

CRYSTALS: Chrysanthemum

Chrysanthemum Stones are another wonder of Nature's beauty. This is a black limestone with a unique white Celestite forming a flower-like marking. The contrast of black and white allows us to accept the dark with the light in the universe. Use for contemplation and meditation, to soothe worries and enjoy the beauty of nature.


Tip: When choosing a crystal ring for healing purposes, pick one that is open in the back to allow the energy of the stone to flow directly to your physical body!

SALE: Crystal Balls

Only 5 days left until the sale on our natural crystal healing stone spheres end!!

Spheres are the perfect shape, uniform, allowing energy to flow through all sides evenly. Hold during meditation, use in crystal healing, place on a ring, place on the body, use in massage or as "stress balls" to release tension from your hands.

Spinel is great for the root chakra, grounding you to the physical world. It renews your energy and rejuvenates you to enjoy life here on earth. Here red Spinel is found on white marble!


A bridge formation occurs where a smaller crystal is attached to the crystal larger point, similar to an incomplete cross. Quartz Bridges creates a channel of wisdom by bridging your spiritual and physical worlds.

CRYSTALS: Stress Balls

Natural crystal balls can be used as "stress balls". If you have 2 palm spheres, you can squeeze one in each hand, releasing tension from your body and absorbing the positive energy of the stones. Crystals Balls used as stress balls are especially beneficial for those who use their hands extensively, like those who are always on the computer!

CRYSTALS: Pendulums

QUESTION: Sheila~How do you go about picking your pendulums?? Does it matter the stone?? The chain (material, size, etc)? And what about other stones on the chain?? What is your opinion and suggestion. Struggling a bit with all of that....Thanks, Rainbow Waves of Love

ANSWER: The two most popular uses for pendulums is dowsing (asking yes and no answers) and crystal healing. For dowsing, you can use any type of crystal, even any type of material. You definitely will be attracted to a certain crystal pendulum or you will do some experimentation and find the pendulum you best like to work with for this purpose.

For crystal healing, we most commonly use Quartz pendulums because Quartz gives such an accurate measurement of energies (this is what powers our wrist watches!). Pick out any clear Quartz pendulum, preferably faceted and pointed if you are doing chakra readings.

Chain length is again up to your own preference. For chakra checking, you typically use a length of 6-8" long of a chain. Of course there are also different methods of pendulum use and healing. I have seen some people swing the pendulum over each chakra with great force, so they prefer a longer chain. If you find your chain is too long, you can always wrap the chain around your finger to the desired length or switch out the chain entirely.

Hope this helps in making your decision for your upcoming pendulum use! You can read more on pendulums and even watch the video on our website at:

CRYSTALS: Recharging

QUESTION: Hello, I am wondering if you can answer a question I have regarding crystals changing colors. I have a Lemurian clear colored crystal (about the size of my fist), which I was using in a healing grid. It is now turning orange in a few areas. I tried cleaning it with water and soap and vinegar too. Not sure if salt would damage the crystal so haven't tried that. My guess is that since the crystal was in the center of the healing grid that it was taking on so much negative energy that the discoloration occurred. I just put it in the sunlight to see if that will help. I am wondering if the energy of the crystal is damaged forever or if it is still usable for healing purposes once it has taken a "break". If this is true, how long of a "break" should I give it or should I just recharge it? It has been attuned to the Master level of Reiki. The crystal was very expensive due to the size and so I want to do whatever I can to "help" it heal. Please email me with your advice/suggestions.Thank you for your time and assistance!

ANSWER: If you use this crystal extensively for healing, I would definitely give it a break for a week or two, all the while recharging its energies in the sunlight and cleansing it with your preferred method of cleaning. In your case, I would even deprogram the crystal and reprogram it to recharge and recover. To learn more about cleaning, charging and programming crystals, visit my website: I Dig Crystals This is why it's always good to have a back-up set if you're doign professional healing work like reiki!

If your intuition tells you that the power of the crystal is just as energetic as when you first received it, even after the recharging break, I would return it to the earth (bury it in your garden or a potted plant) for a longer period of time.

CRYSTALS: Elephant Phantom

You never know what kind of phantom inclusions you will find in natural crystals!! Here's one from our customer of the quartz egg above.

Good Day: This is a personal thank you for my elephant, yes I know you did not intentionally sell me an elephant, but because of what I see in the quartz egg is the reason I placed a bid. Yes, I have been blessed with probably the last elephant to enter my collection. Thank you from the depth of my spirit and soul. Take care and be blessed.

PASSAGE: Positive Wolf

Thanks to Jeannie for sending this in to us:
An elderly Cherokee Native American was teaching his grandchildren about life....

He said to them, "A fight is going on inside me, it is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.One wolf is evil - he is fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment,inferiority, lies, false pride, competition, superiority and ego.

"The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

"This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person too."

They thought about it for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

CRYSTALS: Unfog Brain

QUESTION: In the case of memory loss, would clear crystal be better rather than, say, rutilated or one of the colors such as rose or citrine? thanks a bunch.

ANSWER: In this case, I would definitely recommend clear crystals to unfog the energy that has been jumbled up in the brain. Other crystals can be used as a complementary energy, but I would definitely focus on the clear stones for working with the brain!
