The word Selenite comes from the Greek “Selenites”, meaning “moon stone” or “moon rock”, with the root word “Selene” meaning “Moon”, and for good reason – the mineral Selenite is the near transparent and colorless crystal form of Gypsum that exudes a pearly luster which glows and can very much resemble the moon. The Greek Goddess of the Moon is named Selene, Selenite contains feminine energy and is often used to… Continue reading
Quartz is a gemstone everyone knows about and many people will have many types of quartz. I intend to talk about the general uses of quartz without going into what each formation of quartz can be used for. The formations of quartz, will be talked about separately.
Quartz can transform mechanical energy into elector magnetic energy (and vice versa), which makes it useful in devices such as microphones, crystal radios, watches, etc.
Clear Quartz is sometimes called Rock Crystal and is generally the most… Continue reading
I got up much earlier than normal this morning thanks to an alarm snafu on my part, so I have managed to get a few things done early today and that means time for a reading this morning instead of later today.
I’ve taken to doing a different type of shuffling of my deck since I’ve been “in love” with the wands suit now for a bit so cut it a couple times in different variations and then smooth shuffling. It seems that no… Continue reading
I am delayed today on getting my post together for my reading. I pulled my card this morning like normal but did not have quite enough time to put this together and the Gemstone Spotlight so I opted for Gemstone and figured on doing this later…
Like old friends I have pulled another card from the Wands suit. It seems like an old friend that I keep finding unexpectedly in the super market where we catch up and later go to get some coffee. Today I pulled… Continue reading
Ah, amethyst how I love thee like so many have for thousands of years. Long viewed as a stone of royalty it has been set into crowns, scepters and even rings for bishops. It is said to even have been the ninth stone in the breastplate of the High Priest of Israel and one of the ten stones upon which the names of the tribes of Israel were engraved.
Amethyst’s name is derived from… Continue reading
This morning I shuffled absentmindedly for much longer than I normally do and not really thinking about anything in particular just shuffling and letting my mind wander over what I needed to get done today and what I wish to accomplish in the short term. I finally settled down and pulled a card.
The card was the Ace of Pentacles, again today. Interesting. Since I pulled this card a second day in a row I wanted some clarification so two more cards pulled. Ace… Continue reading
I know I say this nearly everyday when I post a stone, today is no different. I really love Sodalite. From it’s beautiful marbling of blues, black and white with some grey that are the most common to the overall general feeling of well-being I have when I work with it.
Sodalite can be used to help in the decision making process by helping you through the elimination of confusion to stimulate the rational and intellectual mental processes within a situation.
It is an excellent stone to use in group situations as it will facilitate qualities of companionship, fellowship and… Continue reading
This morning I decided to do some extra shuffling in my deck. Partially because I have been very wands heavy in readings lately and wanted to see if that would make a difference or not. Clearly it makes no difference I will pull a wands card if the message is right.
I think this card is absolutely stunning . A woman stands on the edge of a “cliff” after having made an arduous journey up the slope of the mountain. There have been… Continue reading
Sunstone is an oligioclase feldspar with a hardness of about 6.

Some of these qualities are benevolence, warmth, strength, mental clarity, the awareness and ability to bestow blessings upon others. In this you also see qualities of leadership.
