Feng Shui is an ancient art and science, developed over 3000 years ago in China. It has been used throughout the ages to balance the energies of homes and other spaces. It is believed to assure health and good fortune. Feng Shui and crystal healing are often used hand-in-hand with the intention of creating a happier, healthier environment.
Feng Shui is all about the flow of energies. If you suspect that the energies of your house are not flowing well then stagnation will occur and you risk inviting in negativity. Is your living space a cluttered environment? Too much furniture and mess can disrupt the flow of good energies. Imagine a coloured wind moving through your home, does it flow freely or does it encounter too many obstacles? If the latter is the case, a wide range of clearing crystals can be placed around to your living space to restore balance and vitality.
The Power of Positivity
Energy should always be clear, positive, and sparkling. Clear quartz is helpful to have in various places in your home as it is said to clarify energy. Amethyst is also recommended for its calming effects and is said to work directly on people who come near to its natural aura. You can also have clusters of apophyllite – even just a simple pyramid will help keep any space clear. With all these crystals pointing in different directions they will diffuse energies, clearing and cleansing it.
Proponents of Feng Shui are familiar with so-called poison arrow chi. This refers to unwanted, intense energies that come into your home, such as very bright sunlight or wind. For sunlight, hang crystals in the window to break up the influx of energy. Geopathic stress can also occur if you have a corner of a building pointing towards your home, especially your front door. To counter this, try placing a clear quartz point in a window and angle it in the direction of the energy disruption. The spearhead shape of a selenite healing crystal is ideal for directing energy. Placing clear quartz points in every corner of the room, pointing inwards, is often used to keep positive energy contained within a specific space.
So, if you are considering Feng Shui to bring vitality and flow to your home, look no further than CrystalAge.com’s spectacular range of crystals!
Energies are all around us, at home, work and in the street. You don’t choose who you work with and so many employees find themselves trapped in an office environment with some highly negative people. Stress levels can be high, as can the constant exposure to the electromagnetic field (EMF) generated from your office PC. It can affect your energy, preventing positive energies from penetrating and negative energies from escaping.
Many people combat these problems with the use of crystals. The energies of crystals are believed to cleanse negativity and amplify positive vibrations.
One method to try is to take a crystal into the workplace and place it between yourself and your monitor. As well as being a striking decorative piece for your desk, it is said to absorb the harmful EMF generated by your PC . Alternatively, try wearing your crystal of choice close to your body as a shield against negative energies. Crystal earrings, necklaces, and bracelets are perfect for this.
What Crystals for the Office?
Knowing that crystals can help protect from electromagnetic frequencies is half the battle. But what crystals are best to use?
Black tourmaline will reflect away electromagnetic energy and protects you if you are under attack by a boss or unhappy workmate.
Rose quartz (associated with love and compassion) and Rutilated Quartz (quartz with inclusions of titanium or other ores) are said to be very useful in healing negativity. You can also have a clear quartz cluster which will help dissipate bad energies.
Amethyst will help with electromagnetic stress and looks attractive on your desk. A tumblestone is sufficient but a cluster is better for dispersing negativity.
Fans of Tourmalinated Quartz speak of its effectiveness. It is a beautiful mineral and you will enjoy having it on your desk at work. For the budget conscious, a carborundum or amethyst energy dome will do the job for a very affordable price.
So to make your working day happier and healthier, consider the amazing properties of crystals.
We live in a stressful society. Work, bills, debts and the economic situation all contribute to a mass of problems which clutter the mind and reduce focus. Even our day-to-day tasks at home can result in over thinking things and one’s health is inevitably affected. CrystalAge has a wide selection of crystals to help you deal with stress and anxiety.
Best Crystals to Combat Stress
Purple crystals are best associated with healing the symptoms of stress. There is Charoite, Fluorite and Amethyst. Amethyst is the most popular of the purple crystals and is widely considered one of the most effective crystals for healing. It is known as a master healer for all systems of the body, very spiritual and aligned with the Third Eye or Brow Chakra. Amethyst is said to help you to think at your highest level and remain focused in all situations. Fans of amethyst say that it is perfect for meditation and recommend keeping an amethyst stone or two in the bedroom as they calm down the pineal gland and help adjust sleep patterns.
Staying grounded and centred is very important when dealing with people and their energies, as you don’t want them to affect you in a negative way. Black Tourmaline – also known as Schorl – is seen as one of the best crystals to protect you from negative energy, and is believed to promote a relaxed outlook and disperse tension. Did you know that many crystal users counter electromagnetic stress from office PCs by placing a piece of Black Tourmaline between themselves and their computer monitor? Try it for yourself and see how it affects your working day and mood.
Tiger Eye, especially Blue Tiger Eye, is known as a fantastic stone for grounding and relieving stress. Also called Falcon’s Eye, Blue Tiger Eye has been used for protection for centuries. Calming Blue Tiger Eye Palm Stones are the perfect shape to hold in the hand or to place on the body as part of your crystal healing regime.
Other de-stressing crystals to consider are Pyrite, Smokey Quartz, Jet, and Obsidian. Blue Chalcedony and Blue Lace Agate are extremely calming stones, and hailed as effective for anyone suffering from insomnia and other sleep disturbances. CrystalAge has everything you need if you are looking to centre and de-stress your life – choose the stone that your own energy leads you to and feel the tension start melting away.
Here’s a tale from Greek mythology that may have slipped past you. Dionysus, god of wine and inebriation, decided one day to pursue the affections of a maiden named Amethystos. Not interested in the drunken deity, Amethystos pulled a clever trick.
She prayed to Artemis to help her stay pure and was promptly transformed into a white stone. A humbled Dionysus splashed some wine over the stone as an offering and the purple amethyst stone was born. However, science tells us that the amethyst stone is actually irradiated quartz. Whether you choose to believe the myth or the reality, it is still one of the most elegant stones you can find.
Amethyst is one of the best stones for healing and the release of negative energy. It helps boost the immune system and can even aid those suffering from addictions. Place one on your bedside table at home for peaceful nights and uncluttered dreams. Or keep a stone or two on your office desk; it will absorb the stress in the room and create a much more relaxed working environment.
A great idea is to have peaceful amethyst with you wherever you go – and a great way to do this is with one of our beautiful pendants. Hang the pendant on your headboard at night before you go to sleep to enhance your slumber. Then, when the working day begins, slip it over your neck, either over your shirt or blouse as a decorative piece of jewellery, or secretly tucked inside your top to lie next to your skin.

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.

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.
All crystal jewellery give you the benefit of the stones but magnetic hematite jewellery is an especially good choice for pain relief and health problems. Magnetic hematite is believed to have a powerful healing and pain relieving effect, thanks to the magnetic field that surrounds the stones. The magnetic flux is believed to reduce inflammation and stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. It is recommended for poor circulation and by stimulating blood circulation, magnetic hematite is believed to revitalise the whole body. Magnetic hematite jewellery is also said to give gentle but effective pain relief and help your body to eliminate toxins. These benefits make magnetic hematite very useful for healing a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, asthma, kidney problems and chronic pain.
Our Magnetic Hematite Jewellery
Here at Crystal Age we have a great choice of magnetic hematite jewellery. A bracelet is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to wear magnetic hematite. You can wear your magnetic hematite bracelet on the side of the body that is in need or healing and they come in a choice of stylish designs.
