Bloodstone

Cleansing and Healing

 Sedona Crystal Vortex | Bloodstone - Tumbled Stones

Bloodstone strengthens the body’s circulation and ability to eliminate toxins. In the Middle Ages, Bloodstone was thought to represent the blood of Christ on a mossy stone and was therefore revered for its healing and protective abilities. Bloodstone is a form of Agate with reddish spots of iron oxide which interacts with the circulatory system and improves circulation. It purifies one’s aura and Heart Chakra and is an effective detoxifier for environmental toxins. Bloodstone provides a protective aura around the carrier and can be worn as jewelry or carried in a pocket. This protection stone will shield you from the negative energies and auras of other people, from stressful or scary situations, from magical or other-worldly forces, or from destructive emotions or thoughts.

 

Carnelian

Confidence and Joy

 Sedona Crystal Vortex | Carnelian - Tumbled Stone

Carnelian is an exceptionally powerful confidence booster. It imparts the wearer with an acceptance of the circle of life while simultaneously encouraging steadfastness. Because of this unique combination, it fuels one’s life force and vitality, creating the perfect combination for bringing forth social change. Carnelian is an energy-boosting and invigorating crystal which brings joy and vitality to the carrier. Many stones arouse feelings of happiness, but these brightly colored golden stones will supercharge the Solar Plexus Chakra and leave you feeling full of life.

 

Lapiz Lazuli

Mental Clarity and the Ability to Speak One’s Truth

 Sedona Crystal Vortex | Lapis Lazuli- Tumbled Stone

Lapis Lazuli is a deep blue healing crystal which activates the Throat and Third Eye Chakras. It facilitates one’s spiritual journey and allows them to honestly accept their past and path into the future. It brings inner peace and allows for expression of honest feelings and emotions. Treasured by royalty, priests, and spiritual healers for thousands of years, Lapis Lazuli has long been revered for its ability to hold and carry history. This beautiful deep blue stone allows the wearer to accept their personal history, transcend from past negativities, and speak their truth.

 

Rainbow Moonstone

Insight and New Beginnings

 Sedona Crystal Vortex | Rainbow Moonstone - Tumbled Stone

Rainbow Moonstone is deeply connected to the moon and the Divine Feminine. Rainbow Moonstone is a particularly magical stone, with beautiful labradorescence (similar to iridescence but named for its sister stone Labradorite). Much like the moon is illuminated by the sun, Rainbow Moonstone loves rays of sunshine, revealing a rainbow of colors in the light. Leave your Rainbow Moonstone out in the moonlight on a full moon to cleanse the stone and set a new intention for each month. Moonstone is deeply connected to the moon herself and therefore brings peaceful and complete sleep. Wear a Rainbow Moonstone to bed or place a small crystal under your pillow to manifest your dreams and increase your intuition throughout the night. 

 

Rhodonite

Unlocking One’s Full Potential and Balancing Feminine and Masculine Energies

 Sedona Crystal Vortex | Rhodonite - Tumbled Stone

Rhodonite was discovered in the 1700’s in the mystic mountains of Russia, where the locals discovered that the eagles of the region would carry small pieces of the crystals to their nests. Rhodonite was therefore given the nickname of “Eagle Stone” and much like these powerful birds, Rhodonite is a talisman of strength, wisdom, and bravery. These three traits create the perfect conditions for unlocking and reaching your full potential. Rhodonite encourages feelings of brotherhood with humanity and allows one to see both sides of an issue. This aligns the chakras and balances yin and yang, masculine and feminine, dark and light.
