      If you do I recommend Rose Quartz a healing one which connects to the heart… You can look upon my list to find which one might suit you.. 😉
      I have that along with a dish full of various crystals which my Granddaughter who is only 2 already knows the names of and just loves touching them.. An Earth Baby! I think 🙂

    I decided to search for Sugilite on a whim, and was surprised to see this post come up! I love semiprecious stones, especially turquoise. I have been drawn to wearing sugulite again and want to reaquaint myself with it’s properties!

      I wear lots of turquoise and I am pleased you found what you needed in your search 🙂 I am always delighted when people find this page and connect with crystals, something I have done for many years,

      I have given many crystals back to our Earth Mother, placing or throwing them in rivers, the oceans etc.. As I charge them with Peace and Healing thoughts….:-)

    Hi Sue – Beautiful site – I have a question- My daughter was struck with intractable epilepsy at 14, 4 years ago – she uses black tourmaline to protect against electromagnetic forces which can affect her, however if she touches any black tourmaline it just crumbles into powder at her touch ! Is this a common phenomenon?- I am aware that tourmaline is brittle and can suffer after tectonic or blasting stress – but this seems to occur with all examples we have come across.
    Thanks Richard

      Hello Richard, thank you for taking the time to comment.. I am sorry to hear about your daughter’s epilepsy, I have not heard of this happening to Tourmaline, as you can shape and polish it to shapes.. I can only imagine that your daughters own energies are such that they alter the frequencies properties of the Tourmaline.. Crystal are living rocks, vibrating at their own frequencies.. Have you tried any other protective stones?
      Regards and Blessings Sue

    I am an old ‘Rock Hound’ I have a garden tittered with gem stones and chrystals.
    You may have noticed them in some of Pauline’s posts.
    Interesting reading Sue all the things attributed to them.

      Jack I am not surprised you are an old “Rock Hound” .. I remember well I did a profound healing with Crystals once upon a time.. The person who received their healing was amazed at their powerful energy.. My collection of them and understanding their ‘Magic’ has been with me since I was young and saw the quartz shimmering among the stone walls where I lived in Derbyshire.. What fascinates me more are the huge crystal caves beneath the Earth ..

      Many thanks for browsing my pages Jack.. 🙂

    You have a lot of treasures here Sue, they are wonderful and show a lot of power even I sit behind my PC 😀
    I do have several kind of wands too, also Selenite, but not as large as yours. I have never seen them so large before.

    Sue, I used to have many stones. After reading this (some of the page), I want some Orange Calcite. I have a stone I really love. It looks green, but has all the colors in it. Not sure the name as I forget so much lately. (I need one for memory too, but the Orange Calcite is surely one I need). I have a lovely and big Rose Quartz. I recently moved it from the kitchen to my desk area. I sure need some healing.

    I’m tired and woke up at midnight not feeling great. So, I come here.

    Thank you for all you offer and give on this blog. After all these years, I am always amazed and feel blessed to have been here.

    Sue, my friend, sweet Ruthie Mae, passed away. She went to Rainbow Bridge the first day of Spring. I guess, that is a good time to go there and play with her mate, Tiny. I miss her so much. She didn’t suffer much, I don’t think. The doctor said she was utterly fatigued when I took her to the hospital. I sure know how that feels and I loved her so, that the decisions were very clear that night.

    This is a new era in my life. In a way, I feel that Ruthie knew that and so, I am working to honor her in doing all that I am able to do so that I may return to a better state of health.

    Peace and Blessings, Love, your friend, Michelle.

      Awww… Michelle, my dear, you have my heart felt blessings, I know how close you and Ruthie were, I feel your sadness. I am happy to learn she did not suffer Michelle… I know you know better than anyone when its time to start a new era.. Only you dear Michelle can muster new strength to bring about a new regime or way of being into a new phase of wellness.. I am doing better since altering my diet.. And feel so more energised. Sending my sympathies your way Michelle, and I know you can achieve all you put your intention into.. Love and Blessings. Sue xxx

        Thank you, my friend. I’m also changing my diet, slowly, but am leaning toward fermented food. I’ve been in a lot of pain and my girl Ruthie knew that. I miss her so much, but like you say, I am really grateful that her life was good until she had to leave this earth. I’m glad you are feeling better. I appreciate your sympathy. I felt that things just weren’t right until I told you. Thanks too for your inspiration. With all my love, Michelle.

    I have a few stones that I don’t know what they are. One day I’ll post them and you might know. I have books but some things look similar to others.

    An incredible source of information, Sue 🙂 Congrats, on the huge work to put it together! A blog post to refer back to, for sure. I recently started wearing a clear quartz pendant to promote healing. I’ve really enjoyed wearing it. However, when I wore it for some days together with a citrine pendant, I experienced the energy as quite “chaotic” i.e. I felt restless/agitated. Maybe just a coincidence? Love & blessings, Sam 🙂

      Thank you Sam for visiting my Crystal page.. Sometimes we can experience a change of mood or energy levels when we wear a combination of crystals.. I am sure you are aware to cleanse your crystals regularly and some crystals can absorb different types of energy.. I wear Turquoise often the most.. it just seems to balance me.. and it has a history within a past life recall which is why I am drawn to it I think..
      But I often swap what crystals I wear to bring an energy boost or a calming peace that I feel I need..
      And some times all one needs to do is to intuitively be guided as to the choice to wear each day… Citrine will also help cleanse other stones too, so maybe the imbalance was because if you had charged your clear Quartz to promote healing, the Citrine was working against it in cleansing it…
      Many thanks for telling me about this experience.. Love and Gratitude.. Sue 🙂

        That’s a very interesting perspective, Sue, on the Citrine and Quartz. Yes, that could be right. Today, I’m wearing just the Citrine and all’s jolly 😉 Thanks so much for your feedback. Love & blessings, Sam:)
