CRYSTAL VISIONS: Smoky Quartz

A crystal to battle burnout, overwhelm and stress  Smoky Quartz is my favourite anti-stress stone. Whenever I'm feeling overwhelmed, my head is buzzing with a million thoughts or the bullets of my to do list are bouncing off my brain, I reach for my Smoky Quartz Amulet.

Some people actually bury a little Moss Agate in their house plants to help them thrive! For me Moss Agate feels like spring time in a stone. As Persephone steps back up from the underworld and her mother Demeter's happiness at...
