November is a month of transition and changes – autumn shifts to winter, animals migrate, fallen leaves and snow cover the landscape as cool winds blow about. In older times November was a month of reflection and contemplation – a time to look over our lives before the uncertainty of winter took hold – but now that survival isn’t as questionable, November is still a time reflection but also a time of rest. To relax the mind and body, along with our fears.
Black Agate: Agate comes in as many colors as one could dream of with a balancing energy that soothes dysfunctional energy so that it can be transformed to assist the user. Black agate in particular helps in the transformation of fears, anxiety, and our concerns for the future. This crystal’s gentle energy offers support through these thoughts – giving us insights into fears, guiding us to the root of their being and how we can heal from them.
K2: This speckled crystal is made up of azurite, biotite, and white granite. This mix of different crystals all rolled into a lovely spotted package is a favorite in out household. With a strong, deep energy that assists it’s user in understanding their soul mission here on Earth and reveals the road map it’s user needs in order to embrace that mission, along with all the things that are necessary in order to manifest it.
Howlite: This white and gray crystal with its light, cool energy is always one of my top picks when it comes to working with children. Howlite encourages communication, along with helping us to exspress our emotions and creating a space both with in and around the user of patience. This allows for us to let go of crticalness and frustration when it comes to dealing with trying situations.

This crystal also assists in connecting the user more to their personal gifts and talents – both spiritual and otherwise. During this month we are reminded of the grand cycles of nature: life, death and between it the ever changing world around us.
As we go forward into November, take note of how your life has changed over the course of this year. Whether things panned out just as you envisioned or if you are far from where you thought you’d be, take pride in your journey thus far and rest.
The start of a new year is always filled with all kinds of different energies: anticipation, transformation, unease, sadness, and everything in-between. The year 2020 is a year that many have been excitedly awaiting due to its connection in angelic numerology being a year full of spiritual development, the ending of cycles, and unlocking the hidden potential of not just an individual but as a complete society. The crystals I’ve chosen to usher in this new energy are meant to help the user remove energy blocks, allow the healing of trauma, and transform energy.
Emerald: These beautiful green crystals have been associated with luck, money, and abundance since ancient times along with being a crystal that holds great sacred knowledge. With it’s gentle energy that not only sooth our emotions but helps us to understand how they can affect parts of our lives and our relationships. It allows us to bring harmony where once chaos dwelled. For those wanting to connect with their psychic gifts – particularly clairvoyance and prophetic dream work – this crystal is a perfect place to start.

This particular agate allows for the user to embrace life more fully and assists in helping one enjoy every moment that life has to offer, while also helping support the user through times of turmoil and stress. This energy lets us stay more centered within ourselves when these dis-harmonic energies creep into our lives. This light and calming variety of agate is a perfect match for those interested in wanting to improve their memory, healing childhood trauma, or wanting to work on their personal healing gifts.
Lepidolite: This purple and silver-flecked crystal is a personal favorite in this house, especially since it assists in bringing relief for headaches. This calming crystal contains the mineral lithium – the main ingredient of many mood balancing medications meant to help those that suffer with depression and anxiety. Lepidolite assists in reducing stress and brings relief to all parts of our physical body as well as our energy body! This crystal is a must have for the energetic toolbox, especially as we go into this new year. Lepidolite is also highly useful for those wanting to connect more with their higher selves and other higher vibration beings.

This changed quartz is an excellent crystal to help channel psychic energy into all parts of our life, letting us connect more with the everyday joys. It’s assists in intuitive work and into developing your personal talents; no matter what they are. This crystal can also be used to communicate more with our personal spirit guides and higher self, along with making their user more aware of the other worlds around them.
These four crystals each help to bring a different kind of assistance to this coming year! I hope your holidays are merry and bright! And wishing everyone a happy new year.
October is a month full of wonderful energy- fall is suddenly felt in the very air around you and everyone is planning for celebrations.

White Opal (precious): These stunning crystals contain the the beautiful luster that opals are famous for- often a milky white crystal with flashes of bright color inside.

Gold Sheen Obsidian: This beautiful variety of obsidian has a chatoyance sheen that makes a gold color play across the surface of the crystal. While all obsidian have powerful healing, protection, and cord cutting attributes, this particular obsidian is my top pick for energy workers to have in their tool box.

Everything for green, to red, to even white, the one we’re going to focus on in this article is the traditional blue sapphire.

Blue sapphire also assists in removing disordered energy from our lives, promotes dreaming, and can be used to communicate with ancient civilizations.
Rainbow Fluorite: This multicolored crystal is not only beautiful but is a multi-use crystal that should be found in any energy worker’s toolbox. This variety of fluorite includes all of the many colors that it comes in wrapped up into one stone.

There are super rare crystals such as Painite, which lands itself in the Guinness Book of World Record for being the rarest mineral. The definition of rare can be debated with crystals, in this article we will discuss some of the more known rare crystals from around the world. This will be a multiple part series with different rare minerals and crystals discussed.
Then you have minerals such as Thunder bay Amethyst, which is rare due to the fact it can only be found in Thunder bay, Ontario. The same goes with larimar, a crystal which has only been found in one location. All larimar comes from the mountainous province of Barahona in the Dominican Republic.
All crystals can be considered rare as each is unique. Though there are some unique features that really stand out in certain formations. Such as insects being trapped inside of amber from millions of years ago. These sort of crystals are fun to collect because you know you’re in possession of something that presents natures creation with and an unfathomable history of time on this earth.
In most instances, because of demand, the more expensive a crystal is the more likely it is to be rare. Not in all cases though, always be careful when buying a crystal that a vendor claims to be unique for a specific reason. Also be weary of crystals that are known to be rare, which are being sold at suspiciously low prices. There are many fake crystals out there. These can be made in many different ways, such as painting glass or other crystals in the same patterns as an expensive crystal. If at a gem show, take advantage of the microscope table where you can usually pay a small fee to have your crystal accurately identified.
According to miningglobal.com, the following are the top 10 rarest crystals in the world

Communication, creation, and the energy of the home; this is month to feed our surroundings and ourselves with comfortable, nurturing energy that brings wonder and joy into our lives. The crystals I have chosen for connecting with vibrant month are listed below!
Celestite is a pale blue crystal that helps us to not only understand what can be accomplished with the resources that we have at any given time, but focuses rationality and understanding complex situations and ideas. This crystal’s light, yet powerful energy assists in helping the user be able to better express themselves as well as brings enlightenment on a person’s personal soul story and their individual spiritual path. Working with celestite brings deeper understanding to our dreams, energetic communication, connecting with the higher energetic realms, along with connecting music with healing.
Personal power, freedom, strength and leadership are all words that describe the energy of this power crystal. For those that suffer from fear, self-doubt, or disturbing thoughts that are from trauma (especially childhood trauma), they can find relief in this crystal which drives off these energies and brings in warmth and healing. I often describe the energy of this crystal as a relaxing day on the back porch to my clients with the convenience of fitting in your pocket. Sunstone allows for those that are having a rough time to relax and allow them to connect with the rich energy of life that is going on all around us. This physical and mental rejuvenation brings in new thoughts and way to expand our inner knowledge of what is truly the right thing to do.

This lovely teal, green crystal is one of my favorite communication crystals since it stimulates the throat chakra, assists with making a person feel at ease when expressing themselves as well providing connection on how to verbalize our own deep wisdom. Chrysocolla is a wonderful crystal for those in any kind of speaking field or teaching position. Working with its energy while speaking allows for the user to communicate the information more accurately and for those listening to better comprehend what is being said.

March is the season when we first start to feel the steady beating of spring around us, the building of sunlight and warm make the energy literally vibrate around us. This is the month of fertility, motivation, and the start of new things. In this article will go over my favorite stones to best utilize this energy packed month so that you can fill your spring with all the things you want to see manifest in your life!
Fire agate: Fire agate is a crystal deeply connected to the energy of March through it’s energetic ties to the fiery energy of Mars where the month gets its name from, along with the actual “fire” or luster that many of these stones have. This crystal helps us stoke the inner flames of our souls, driving the passions that lead us down our spiritual path so that we can truly flourish in light of inspiration and enlightenment. Fire agate can also serve to help us navigate through the dark areas of not only our personal journey but to protect us from the negative people and energy in our surroundings. This energy helps keep personal vitality geared towards progression, joy, and a zest for life.
Green aventurine: Aventurine comes in several colors but this soothing green crystal is a favorite in my house, with it being a crystal of opportunity and luck as well as being excellent for releasing worry or anger. This crystal also helps bring a much needed dash of humor for the cold days that appear during this month. This, coupled with the energy that fuels creativity and motivation can open one up to a whole world of possibilities even while stuck indoors. Green aventurine also helps in ridding us of old patterns and habits, cutting them away so that new growth can take their place. This allows for deep change on a personal level as move into the bustling energy of spring.

Carnelian: This vibrate orange crystal really is the stone of March in my opinion, with its bold colors and strong, direct energy that helps to heat personal drive for not only life itself but for wanting to see things around you change. Carnelian is a kind of support system in any kind of work the user does, providing needed endurance to see projects through to the end, courage for when doubt or sadness begin to loom, and even just the added spark of desire to see your dreams flourishing around you. As if all of that wasn’t enough, this crystal helps in the balance male and female energies and aids in protection as well.
Clear calcite: Calcite comes in several colors but for this article we’re going to talk about one of my favorites – clear calcite, sometimes called Iceland spar or optical calcite. This is the crystal that helps the user to trust in their own abilities and to believe in their own personal power to create change in the world around them, even when setbacks occur in their lives. Clear calcite is also a crystal that assists in turning dreams and ideas into actions, bringing clarity, focus, and even knowledge on how to best use the energy around you. This crystal is also one I recommend for anyone who can quickly become over stimulated by energy since it helps to channel unused energy and redirect it to places where it can be used properly.
During this March, remember that the energy you plant now will grow and flourish as move into the full vibrance of spring. These crystals and many others can help you harness your inner power so that you can grow the world that want to live in around you. The magic is all there inside you, just waiting to get out!
February is a month that is full of transitions and purification – which is where is the month actually gets its name from. This month is not only one that begins to move us out of the cold of winter and revitalizes us with the promise that the warm glow of spring is on its way. This month is the time to really focus on the things that are no longer working for us and to release energies that are holding us back. In this article I’m going to cover some of the crystals that can best help you utilize the ambient energy of this this transitional month is packed full of.
This seafoam green crystal helps to bring order not only to our thoughts, it helps to relieve stress, along with also helping to remove toxic energy and patterns from every level of our being. Fluorite come in several different colors, which all connect to different chakras and energies within our bodies. Green fluorite in particular helps to heal the heart chakra, acting as a kind of purifying salve for the heartache of the past and as restorative to ease the strain of negative energy that we can pick up as we navigate daily life as a whole. This shedding of energy gives us a better view of not only the positive energy we have around us but also giving us a clearer picture of the things that hurt us so that we can truly thrive no matter where we are in our lives.
This crystal is one I turn to when I really want to thorough examination of not only the material world but of my position and relationship within it and the connections that I have with others. If dissatisfied in any part of our reality, meditating with this crystal on these matters helps to better connect us with the actions and knowledge that we need in order to improve our lives on every level. If you have found yourself struggling with personal productivity to complete any new years resolutions, this is the crystal I highly recommend to start working with since it brings in energy to help keep those wonderful goals not only in sight but helps pull us up when we start to feel a lack of motivation or just need assistance in starting a new routine.
This beautiful blue crystal is one my favorites and its soothing, cool energy is one that helps to cleanse any negative emotions that we are struggling to let go of. It especially helps with processing anger (be it towards ourselves, people who have hurt us, or anger that has been passed down through us). This powerful emotion often has deep roots that effect everything we do and can squarely stand in the way of us living a full and happy life. Aquamarine helps to bring a calm thoughtfulness to the situations that stir up anger within us, allowing us to not only come back to a better state of mind but letting us break down what is really making us upset so that we can better heal that part of ourselves.
Loadstone is a powerful little stone comprised of unprocessed magnetite which is naturally magnetic and is often sold in a set with one being male and one being female, though even having just one of these little crystals will help balance and reenergize the male and female energies in our bodies regardless if you have two or not. For those who struggle believing in own abilities, talents, or just feel a lack of positive movement in their lives this crystal bring relief in the form of instilling courage within ourselves.
Using even one of these crystals can help you focus and transform the energy around us during this power month, allowing you to shed traumas and old patterns that have held back all the potential you have within. Own your personal power by cleansing and healing yourself and embrace the new energy it brings into your life.
