My Crystal Collection


Before I get into this post I just want to state for the record that I am not a “crystal guru.” I am completely new to crystal collecting. But I was drawn in by crystals so fast I thought I would share mine with you! So here are the few pieces I have picked up so far.  

First I’d like to share with you my experience with crystals.

As I said before I’m not an expert on the subject at all. I just happened to see one of my favorite Youtubers talking about her crystal collection. She talked about the energy of each crystal and how people were drawn to certain crystals depending on their energy. It was SO interesting to me. I started googling and searching the internet for information about these crystals and found that there was a metaphysical store in my town. 

Not that I was sold as soon as I watched one video, but I was intrigued. So I thought to myself why not go into the store, pick up a few crystals and see how it feels. And I did, and I was pulled in a little further. I picked up a purple Amethyst point and just didn’t want to put it down. As a matter of fact I did set it down for a moment to look at another crystal and went straight back for it. My favorite color is purple, so that may be the only thing drawing me it it. But regardless of the reason, I was drawn to it.

Like with most things in life I think it’s all about what you want to believe. Once I read about how crystals are formed and how the energy from each crystal works with your body, it made sense to me. I love thinking that the tools our ancient ancestors used to heal and connect with the earth are the same ones I’m holding in my hand. It’s amazing!

Basically, I was hooked!

While I was picking out my first crystal the owner of the store gave me a small tumbled Lapis Lazuli (along with tons of information.) It’s not everyday you walk into a store and someone gives you something free. So I took that as a good sign and left feeling positive about the whole experience.

Once I had my crystals in my hand I was pretty much hooked. I went straight to eBay and went in search of more! Thats where I found my beautiful Fluorite Wands.

These two came together and are so pretty it’s unreal!

I also found my sweet little Topaz and my Citrine sphere on eBay. Some people say that you really need to hold a crystal to know if its meant for you or not but I was drawn to each of theses crystals in different ways.

But once I held each of them I knew I’d made the right decision. 

Citrine

The last three I got where from a different metaphysical store close to my town. They had tons of beautiful crystals but I was only looking for Rose Quarts (and then found two more.)

I also found this amazing “coffee” Moonstone. So pretty I just couldn’t leave without it!

And last is my favorite. This beautiful circle Rhodonite pendant.

And that’s it! My tiny crystal collection. It’s not much, but they are all special in their own way and hold little spot in my heart. I’m excited to see how my collection grows! I’m always on the lookout for my next peice. 

Do you collect crystals? If so, what is your favorite? Mine is my Rhodonite! 

Thanks for reading!
