Patience, tolerance and compassion are essential elements in a healthy and happy family. You’d be surprised to know how the earth’s natural resources — stones and crystals, when placed correctly, can do wonders to our lives.

For positivity and a better understanding
Milky quartz is a maternal, nurturing crystal. It has a longstanding reputation as healing crystal, promoting steady recuperation from illnesses to which children and the elderly are prone. It is also worn to help lactating mothers produce milk for their children. A large, egg-shaped milky quartz is an ideal crystal to hold when talking and listening to both young and old: its cool, smooth solidity helps you stay calm and give others the time to express themselves. It’s a comforting crystal and makes for a perfect addition to children’s rooms as well.

Another excellent crystal is white marble. Traditionally a protective crystal, it is ideal for use as a talisman for anyone who is under emotional stress. A small piece should be kept on the room’s windowsill. Another important crystal is the beautiful Bloodstone. With its spots of ruddy-coloured iron, it is an ideal crystal to carry around while you’re looking for lost metallic jewellery at home. Also, it helps in revitalising love, relationships and friendships, and enhances talent and creativity. So, never forget that life is a precious gift that should be treasured.
