Here at Crystal Age we love our crystal beads and we have just added a great new range of heart shaped crystal beads. These beads come in two varieties – side drilled and top drilled. The former have a hole that passes laterally through the bead – like the fluorite beads below – and the latter have a hole at the top of the heart – like the tiger eye beads below. The side drilled beads are better for making necklaces where the beads lie side by side, whereas the top drilled beads are better for designs where the bead will drop down. You can also wear both types of crystal beads as simple pendants – just string one on a cord or chain.
Latest Heart Shaped Crystal Beads
We have these new heart shaped crystal beads in ten different crystal varieties: amethyst, blue tiger eye, carnelian, fluorite, mookaite, new jade, opalite, quartz, rose quartz and tiger eye. They start at £5.99 and they make a great choice for making jewellery and crystal collecting.
Amber is a beautiful stone and here at Crystal Age we have recently expanded our selection of fine amber jewellery. We now have a much wider selection of amber pendants and a new range of amber earrings that make wonderful gifts. We also have more different colours of amber, including elegant green amber and gold-flecked varieties. Amber is found in many colours but all the varieties have a richness about them that looks very glamorous. Amber jewellery seems to glow when the light hits it and gives you a wonderful look.
Benefits of Wearing Amber Jewellery
Amber has a unique place in crystal healing because it is not a mineral but an organic substance. As the fossilised resin of extinct trees, amber is very different to other crystals. It was the first precious stone described in human history and has been used as a protective amulet for at least seven thousands years. Amber is believed to bring you good luck, happiness and an optimistic, sunny nature. It is also said to have a powerful healing and cleansing power that can help joint problems, improve wound healing and absorb pain. Amber is aligned with the Solar Plexus chakra and the star signs Aquarius, Taurus and Leo.
Benefits of Wearing Green Amber
Amber is found in many colours, of which green is one of the most attractive. Experts believe that green amber is formed when resin fell onto mineral deposits or volcanic ash. It makes beautiful jewellery and has its own set of healing attributes. Green amber is said to have a bright energy, like new sap rising in Spring. It is said to clear the heart chakra and fill it with love and joy. Green amber is also associated with wealth, fulfilment and empowerment. It is aligned with the same star signs as golden amber but it connects with both the Heart and Solar Plexus chakras.

Crystal jewellery gives you not only a lovely piece of jewellery but also a great way to give and wear healing crystals. I have picked out some of my favourite pieces of jewellery, with two of our most popular crystals: amethyst and turquoise.
Amethyst Crystal Jewellery
Amethyst is a very popular crystal for jewellery and it is easy to see why. It displays beautiful colour and has a lovely shine, especially when faceted and polished. In crystal healing, amethyst is said to have a very soothing effect and a powerful healing energy. Amethyst crystal jewellery is surprisingly affordable and makes a great gift for Christmas. My personal preference is for amethyst with a deep colour but the paler varieties of amethyst are also very beautiful and give very glamorous sparkle.
Turquoise Crystal Jewellery
Turquoise crystal jewellery is always a great choice for Christmas gifts. Turquoise has been prized but Native American culture for thousands of years for luck and protection. I have to say that turquoise is one of my favourite crystals because it just looks wonderful. It is traditionally paired with silver, which really highlights the colour of the crystal jewellery.
If you are looking for an extra special Christmas gift for someone special, I recommend you take a look at amethyst jewellery. Amethyst is a beautiful gemstone and here at Crystal Age we have an excellent range of amethyst jewellery to suit any budget. Amethyst is found in a few different colours but in my opinion, purple amethyst will always be the most glamorous. There is something about the depth of colour and shine that you get with fine amethyst that just lights up your whole look. Amethyst is not a very expensive gemstone, so amethyst jewellery often gives you a very stylish, impressive looking piece at a low price.
Healing Power of Amethyst
In crystal healing, amethyst is believed to have a powerful and soothing healing energy. It is said to soothe away stress and clear the mind, allowing us to attain a greater understanding and spirituality. It is believed to heal the entire body, relieving pain and strengthening the immune system. Amethyst is the birthstone for Pisces, Virgo, Aquarius and Capricorn. It is aligned with Ajna, the Third Eye Chakra. This chakra is a seat of learning and spirituality, which reflects the deeply spiritual nature of this gemstone.

We have a wide choice of amethyst jewellery but below are three of my favourite pieces. I’m a big fan of gemstone pendants because they let the beauty of the stone shine through. Both these amethyst pendants contains stones with a lovely rich, vibrant purple and they come alive with colour when the light hits them. The amethyst trilogy ring is also a delightful piece, featuring a large purple amethyst flanked by two clear topaz.
