Druzy crystals take hundreds, sometimes even thousands, of years to form. As molten rock cools, gas trapped inside causes gaps in the rock. As ground water flows through these gaps year after year, the minerals crystalize into beautiful sparkling blankets of crystals!
Druzy attracts light and joy to a space. When worn, it increases energy, strength, mental clarity, and is used for balancing all of the chakras. If used in meditation, it stimulates the movement of the Kundalini all the way through the body and up into the crown chakra. Druzy amplifies positive energies and is said to stabilize the aura. It creates auric balance by drawing out negative energies, and pulling in positivity and feelings of harmony in its place. This gemstone is particularly helpful for spiritual practices and lightwork, and can empower the energy of other crystals as well. Placing or wearing another stone with your druzy for a day or longer enhances both of their energies. Check out our druzy jewelry on our website or in all Mexicali Blues stores!
Moonstone is the stone of romance, intuition, and emotional balance. It has a highly spiritual nature, and assists one in connecting with the Divine Feminine or the goddess within. Moonstone may be worn to balance hormonal cycles in women and helps all beings become more in tune with their gentler feminine side. Said to promote greater flexibility and flow with life by balancing yin and yang energies, it is a particularly good stone for both women and men who have trouble acknowledging or consciously experiencing their true emotions.
It is said to have power to arouse passion and allow lovers to peek into their future fortunes. Some believe that carrying a moonstone will attract new love, and if you give your lover a moonstone when the moon is full, your romance will be long-lasting and passionate. In Eastern cultures, moonstone has long been favored for all aspects of love and is purported to reunite quarreled lovers.
With its brilliant flash and unearthly shimmer, it’s no wonder that moonstone has been associated through the ages with fantastical origins and magical powers. The ancient Romans and Hindus both believed that moonstone was made from frozen moonbeams and droplets of crystallized moonlight. Moonstone amulets are tied to the ancient legends of the moon goddess of Egypt, Isis, the Greek deity, Selene, and the Roman goddess of the moon, Diana.
The powers of this glimmering stone are highly linked to the energies of the moon itself, focusing on love, fertility, good fortune and protection during dark times. While it has protective powers always, moonstone is particularly good for ensuring the safety of those who are traveling in the dark or on the water, and has long been considered a lucky stone for sailors. Moonstone can help attune the body and mind to the natural forces that surround us, opening intuitive connection with nature, particularly sea and sky. Its powers are at their strongest during the full or almost full moon, and because of its innate moon-connection, this stone benefits particularly well from being charged in the light of the moon.
