Healing Crystals - My Favorite Stone

I'm often asked which stone is my favorite. When first asked, I felt like I was asked to choose my favorite child.

I've had a lot of years, and a lot of crystals, to think about my answer.

I have an amazing honey calcite that once glowed, totally on its own, as if it had a flame inside. The undeniable energy of that chunk cast aside my skepticism, so as a single specimen it will always be special.

But if by some strange nonsense, if I could have just one crystal, it would have to be smoky quartz.

Quartz itself is an incredible healing crystal. Smoky quartz, ranging in shades from the lightest tinge to deep chocolate brown, specializes as an antidepressant. The fact that its color coincides with the Earth chakra below our feet is no accident, because it has an incredibly grounding vibrational energy.

It's only recently that I made the connection between those two properties. The years that I suffered through depression were the ones when I felt the most disconnected. Medication was only able to do so much for the symptoms. But the cause, the isolation, alienation, disconnection, remained untreated. By reconnecting my energy with the Earth and subsequently with all, my depression dissipated. I eventually stopped taking the meds and began to move forward with my life.

So I do have a favorite stone, and I don't care if the others are jealous.

Smoky quartz♥

Peace, Beth

~ Masks must be worn by everyone at all times while shopping. If you have a medical risk preventing you from wearing a mask, I will happily shop for you, but you must wait outside or return to pick-up your order at a later time.  If you are immune compromised, we can schedule a time for private shopping before or after regular shop hours.

~ Only a few customers will be allowed to enter and shop at the same time. This will allow space for you to move about the shop while respecting social distancing.

~ Hand sanitizer is available. Please use it as often as you feel necessary.

~ Beverages are available to go - cafe tables and chairs have been removed. (There is still a chair available if you are unable to stand for an extended time.)

~ You can still place orders for pick-up by emailing your shopping list to

These are temporary guidelines as we begin to test the waters of whatever lies ahead in this pandemic. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we learn to navigate the small shop retail world in a new era.
We are all in this together!
