Inspired by my recent research into crystals, gemstone and other natural objects that host the energy of the earth. I am still not sure where I stand with these sorts of things, but I did hear a beautiful sentiment from someone who makes a lot of jewelry.
She said, that it’s not the rock, stone or crystal that really has any magical powers. Instead, it represents the power and beauty of the earth and natural systems that formed those objects. So, I guess I am stuck somewhere between that viewpoint and believing that the stones do have a spirit as granted by mother earth.
