Here at Bonearrow, we're obsessed with crystals. These little mystical treasures of the earth aren't just pretty, their crystalline structures of perfect 3-dimensional mathematics hold energy and are believed to vibrate at frequencies that our bodies and minds subliminally pick up.
For centuries, as far back as ancient Egypt, people have worn and carried crystals for healing and protection. You may still need a little more time to get on board, but the power of positive thought can be a healing force in itself. We believe that the process of recognising that which needs to change in yourself or your environment and selecting a stone to aid you, a talisman for your journey, is a powerful step towards making that change happen yourself.
So, to make it easy for you, not only have we encapsulated our favourite crystals into beautiful, wearable jewellery, but we've created a little gem glossary below for you to learn all about each one. ✨
