I Love Crystals ... Do you ?

March 9, 2020~  A Good Monday Evening to everyone . Past 10pm here in Singapore and I just arrived home from being a driver fetching my  dear son from his work. Today was again  a very hectic day driving here and there . i had managed to include some house chores and errands in between. Multi tasking was my calling as usual and happy to admit that I was good at it 😜😜😜

Today actually was a very interesting day blessed with a sunny afternoon. I was lucky I didn't spend all the day in the car driving and doing my errands . I got lucky to spend a few moments at home doing some clearing/ recharging .... not clearing of mess like I normally do each day but what I meant was cleansing / recharging my newly acquired crystal stones I got last Saturday after my beading class. Yup ... I raised them both to the light and how amazing those moments were.  Both stones were sparkling and glowing like crazy. I was so mesmerizefd by the rainbow of colors that came out of them. Looked so magical !

Breathtakingly beautiful !

Labradorite & Carborundum Stones

Vitality, love and abundance are the qualities that resonate from charging crystals with sunlight. Morning or early afternoon will find the crystals most receptive due to the strong rays of the sun. Set out in direct sunlight for 12 hours of charging for best results. There are a few crystals that cannot be exposed to sunlight for long periods of time. These include Aventurine, Amethyst, Aquamarine, Beryl, Citrine, Kunzite, Sapphires, Fluorite, Rose Quartz, Smokey Quartz.  Although the charging will still be sufficient, fading colors can result. ( Best Way To Charge Crystals - Sunlight or Moonlight ? )

Labradorite  ~  A stone of transformation. A useful companion through change, imparting strength and perseverance. It balances and protects the aura, raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies .

Carborundum is a man-made or synthetic crystal combining silicon and carbon atoms fused together which sparkles in rainbow colors of gold, pink, green, blue.

Silicon Carbide Carborundum ignites magical energy around you and encourages creative thinking. As a very fragile mineral it should be handled with care. It is a gemstone for dreamers and those who look to the stars & astrology for answers. Silicon Carbide Carborundum encourages expression and self-awareness of your creative energy. As a mineral for dreamers it is best placed by the bed for lucid dreams, and works as an amazing prism in crystal healing as it quickly disperses negative energy from around you.

Silicon Carbide Carborundum is black with a rainbow iridescence that flickers. It energetically purifies the mind, body and spirit while encouraging intuition and discernment.
 The stone crumbles easily and will flake when touched. Also to be considered are some precautionary measures when dealing with Carborundum. why ? 

HAZARD SUMMARY * Silicon Carbide can affect you when breathed in. * Silicon Carbide can irritate the eyes and nose on contact. * Repeated high exposure to Silicon Carbide may result in Pneumoconiosis (chronic disease of the lungs) with chest x-ray changes, and a decrease in lung function with shortness of breath, wheezing and cough. * If Pneumoconiosis develops, chances of getting Tuberculosis are increased. 

Now I need to be extra careful when handling this stone huh ! 

Nevertheless, I am so happy 😍 now that I got the Carborundum as insisted by the seller. in fact he begged me endlessly to take it as it was the last piece left in his crystal shop. I tried to ignore him at first but as I saw the magical colors when touched by the light, I changed my mind. I was drawn into it like magic ! At first, when he said Carborundum, I didn't have any idea what it was and tried to ignore what he was trying to tell me about the said mystery stone. I even thought why the seller was very persistent to sell such stone to me. So he went inside his store room where he had been keeping it and took it out to show and convince me. It was huge ,heavy but very attractive indeed. Absolutely Wow, the more I looked at it, the more I got interested to have it. I decided to take it together with the Labradorite that I bought first and the very reason why I went in their shop. I saw the Labradorite stone a month before and told myself that I would come back for it.

Since I did not have the car to get home last Saturday after my beading lessons, I happily carried both stones all the way from the shop to the train station. I gave up carrying them once I reached the final station near my place. I didn't have the energy anymore to walk  again for about 30 mins carrying the 2 stones with a combined weight of almost 10kg. So instead of walking home furthermore, I took a taxi after the train ride. Great thinking ... and great timing coz there was a taxi waiting  by the taxi stand the moment I popped out of the train station. Hurrraaayyy ...  Lucky me 🙏🙏...what a relief !  LOL! 

Honestly, my back ached like hell before I went to bed that night. What a torture to carry these stones all the way home . I learned my lesson painfully , so....  Never again would I carry such heavy weight !😭😭😭
