The high vibration and rapid transfers of energy from Kyanite create pathways where none existed before. Like a universal bridge, Kyanite holds extraordinary powers of connection, opening the mind centres, telepathic and psychic abilities, bridging gaps in all communication efforts, and providing a link for transmitting or receiving healing energy.
Like joyful Citrine, Kyanite does not retain negative energy and never needs energetic cleansing. It can align and balance the chakras and remove energy blockages.
Sometimes called the “Tripping Stone”, Kyanite is a stone of channelling, altered states, vivid dreams and visualisations. Put Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds on your turntable and let Kyanite simultaneously protect you and take you someplace that sure as hell isn’t Kansas anymore…
Quartz one of the earth’s most abundant minerals and it is often referred to as the “Universal Crystal” because of its many uses.
While the Quartz properties are many and varied, giving it a reputation as a master healer, it is especially helpful for helping control how we think about and perceive situations. Quartz can help open up the mind and elevate negative perspectives to a more enlightened point of view. It can help expand consciousness and facilitate open communication. For those needing clarity of mind, the healing properties of quartz will eliminate energy blockages and allow energy to flow smoothly throughout the body.
Many (serious science people – not just jingly sandal wearing Byron hippies) believe that the similarity in cellular composition of Quartz with the human body and earth’s crust accounts for the interactive communication between gemstones like Quartz and the human body.
This is no joke – Marcel Vogel, a scientist at IBM, has studied the connection between human and emotion and the molecular structure of crystals. He believes that the crystal’s cellular formation was susceptible to change depending on what he was thinking at the time. According to Vogel, the crystal reacts to your “program” and mirrors it in its own composition.
And it turns out that programming your Quartz is way f*cking easier than trying to program your Smart TV to record on iView. To program the Quartz with your intentions, hold it in the palm of your hand and focus on what you want to achieve. The crystal’s memory will download your intentions and help to manifest those goals through its ability to amplify in the same way it does in tech devices (or in this case, in a much easier way than it does in your supposedly Smart TV).
CRYSTALS + YOU
Here are some of our favourite ways to incorporate crystals into your everyday life
✨ MEDITATION | Surely, we all know by now that a meditation habit is maybe the healthiest habit any of us can hope to develop (it beats smoking or gambling anyway, trust us). But transitioning into a meditative or mindful state isn’t always easy, and often, even with the best of intentions, people give up on their practice. They find it difficult to sit still and focus.
Never fear – this is where crystals come in handy. Crystals can cleanse the mind of chaotic thoughts and doubts, they calm and ground us and elevate our energy, so that you can fully immerse yourself in your meditation.
✨ SLEEPING WITH THEM | When you have difficulty sleeping, any number of things could be responsible for disturbing your rest. Whether you have too much on your plate and can’t switch off, or you can’t seem to settle your energy and are constantly worrying you’ve left your hair straightener on, crystals can bring you the peace you need to sleep easy.
If you are just lying there, sleeping sweetly for 8-ish hours every night, you might as well be absorbing some good vibes from your crystals, right?
To use your crystal at bedtime, try setting it next to you on your bedside table, placing it under your pillow or (best of all) holding it in your palm as you drift off.
✨ MASSAGE | Crystallising your massages can elevate your body work session to previously unknown levels of bliss. Using crystals along with soft tissue manipulation can reduce not only muscle pain, but also any pain or blocked energy stored in your mind or energy body, helping to bring your body and energy field back into balance to create stability.
✨ SKIN CARE ROUTINE | When used as part of your daily skincare ritual, a crystal facial roller and/or crystal infused facial serum can work to stimulate collagen synthesis, minimise fine lines and wrinkles, support lymphatic drainage, reduce pore size, boost elasticity, soothe irritation, minimise puffiness and promote deeper product preparation… Yikes – trying saying all of that without taking a breath.
Physically, it helps firm the outer layers of the skin through gentle massage. It also aids in detoxing through the lymphatic system, the body’s main major detoxification structure.
✨ WEAR THEM | Having your crystals close to you is the most effective way to utilise their power. Whether it be crystal jewellery or a little tumble in your pocket (or bra!) Having them close to your skin and vibrating with your aura is the most ideal situation to reach your goal or intention for them faster.
+ so much more, including but not limited to - elixirs, adding them to your altar, creating crystal grids, spells, the posibilities are endless.
CRYSTALS + THE HOME
You’d have to be living under a rock (pun intended!) to be oblivious to how popular gemstones, rocks, crystals and geodes have become in interiors. Seriously, if Instagram is anything to go by, we are definitely not the only ones using crystals to boost the ambiance and good vibes of our living space.
And while there are obviously plenty of creative ways (hello Pinterest!) to take advantage of the healing powers of crystals, if you’re looking to take full advantage of their witchy vibrations and magickal energy, there are ways to place them around your home intentionally, so that their energy can support you in various specific environments.
And don’t forget that the energy of your home can shift over time. If you’ve ever been in a space that was totally spick and span, and flooded with life giving natural light, but somehow just felt heavy, or uncomfortable, then you can understand how a home’s energy is dictated by more than just cleanliness.
The vibe of a space has a lot to do with the energy that has been expelled there, and not cleared away. Breakups, stress, deaths or grief, parties that got out of hand, or even arguments about whose turn it is to take the bins out can leave behind energy in your home and if you’re not smudging or getting rid of that negativity with high vibe crystals for your home, your space can start to feel dirty, no matter how hard your scrub.

REMEMBER, you don't HAVE to believe they're magic - you can just collect them because you think thy're pretty - there are no rules and we are not the gate keepers of crystals 💗
Using crystals for their spiritual and healing properties can be fun and fascinating and is a killer way to connect with the earth’s energy. But, when you really start digging into the magickal world of sparkly stones, it can start getting really overwhelming.
Not only do crystals come in every colour of the rainbow and serve different intended purposes, they are also found in many different shape formations. Newbies to the crystal world may think the way a stone is cut or shaped is purely aesthetic, but there’s a little more to a crystal’s shape than meets the eye. Just as the colours of the stones convey unique meanings, crystal shapes also matter. And while experts say that the structure of a crystal doesn’t change the type of energy it emits, the shape DOES affect the way you receive said energy.
We've put together a handy blog for you to learn about the possible reason or meaning behind the forms of crystals you're drawn to here
