Fluorite: Healing and Magickal Properties

Fluorite is one of those crystals I can’t stop buying because I find them so amazingly pretty, especially the rainbow ones. They remind me of sweets, even though their energy to me doesn’t feel „sweet“. Yes, they are calming, but at the same time a bit rigid due to their cubic crystal system. I use them when I need calm logic, but that’s just my way of feeling fluorites.

Malachite: Healing and Magickal Properties

Cleansing & Charging a Malachite

You can clean any Malachite under warm running water and leave it in the sun or moonlight for a few hours to recharge it.

Malachite makes the perfect companion and works as a shield against negativity. Wearing it, you will feel like being cared for, and isn’t this something we need at these difficult times?

Crystals You Can Put Under Your Pillow

Crystals can hold powerful energy, which you can even feel, when you are sensible enough. The energy itself can help to protect you, soothe you, make you feel more enlightened, even ward off negative spirits. Crystals can also help you sleep better, relieve stress, and generally feel more positive. That is why it can be so beneficial to keep some crystals under your pillow while you are sleeping. Please remember to cleanse and charge them properly. And if they don’t feel right, choose another crystal, that you are drawn to! Also, please keep in mind that you should use it safely. If you can’t put a crystal in your bed without accidentally hurting yourself, rather put it on a nightstand or under the bed!

Amethyst

One of the best crystals you can put under your pillow is the amethyst. Amethyst has very cleansing and purifying properties. But it can also help you to sleep a little bit better! If you are looking for crystals to help with insomnia, or simply be calmer while you sleep, then this is the right crystal for you.  

Flourite

Another very calming crystal is fluorite. It not only helps you to calm your mind, but it can also get rid of some of those returning negative and anxious thoughts you might be struggling with. For many witches, having trouble sleeping is less about physical causes and more about your mental state. Because if you have too much going around in your head, your mind can’t quiet long enough to help you sleep.  Fluorite is also a great supporter of lucid dreams!

Rose Quartz

Rose quartz is often associated with love and romance, but of course it can also be used for self-love. Rose quartz is perfect, if you feel you need to manifest more self-love while sleeping and if you have had confidence or self-esteem issues. It is also wonderful for giving you more emotional warmth and love, feeling more positive while you sleep, as it is a very gentle stone.

Howlite

The benefits of keeping a howlite stone under your pillow are very similar to that of amethyst. It is a calming and soothing crystal, that wards off negative energies and protects you from any bad vibrations that might lead to nightmares. It can also help to calm your mind and settle down for sleep.

Lepidolite

Lepidolite is a wonderful protection crystal, so if you have been struggling with bad dreams lately, this is the perfect crystal for you. Not only can it protect you in your dreams, but also protect your energies from turning too negative from stressful or anxious thoughts. For this reason, you might also consider carrying this crystal with you throughout the day when you feel like you need some extra protection.

How to survive a gemstone fair

Last weekend I went to a gemstone fair, the first one since 2019. I simply love them and, of course, I spent too much money there. But even looking at all the amazing displays is amazing, and I felt happy and relaxed as well as inspired when I left.

Over the years, I gave myself a few rules on how to survive a gemstone fair and enjoy the experience. My first fair was a disaster as I was simply overwhelmed after a few minutes and felt like my kid in the Lego store, running from one stall to the next going oh and ah!  
So here are my personal rules on how to survive a gemstone fair!

Make a shopping list and stick to a budget.  

Yes, there are wonderful stones there, but which one do I really need for my magical work?  Of course, there are always crystals calling out to me, so I have to make tough decisions whether to get them or not.

Eat before going.  

At least when I am hungry, I can get mighty grumpy or might make wrong decisions when purchasing crystals. That’s why I eat something before a fair and always carry a snack with me, so I don’t run out of energy in the middle of the fair.

Don’t buy one at first sight.  

Yes, I want all the gems and I want them now. But first I discipline myself and have a good look around. Sometimes I find a better offer or even something I want more.

Don’t touch anything.

Yes, they all look beautiful, and seem to be smiling and sparkling at you. But even if you are not as sensitive as I am, it still might mess up your energy. After my first visit to such a fair, I felt like I was on drugs, simply because I had touched all the stones I liked! Now I start touching the stones only after my first look around!

Take a bag with you.  

Normally they offer wrapping paper and plastic bags, but I prefer them to have them in my backpack or a cotton bag.

Take notes or even better pictures of the names of the crystals you bought.


I have to admit I can be really forgetful of names, not only from people, but also from crystals. That’s why I started writing down their names or taking pictures from the name tags at the stall. This way I will remember the name!

From my kid: don’t throw the stones!

He just wanted me to add this. 😉

I hope that you can visit a gemstone fair soon and have some magical experiences there.
