Thank you so much for sharing :purple_heart::blush:

I bought myself a tumble of Chrysocolla a few weeks ago while I was at my favourite crystal shop. Anywho. I didnโ€™t know why I needed it but I just decided to buy it anyway. As you do. You donโ€™t say no to crystals.

I get home and I look up my new friend in โ€œThe Crystal Directory: 100 Crystals for Positive Manifestationโ€ by Sarah Bartlettโ€ฆ

Boom. Whatโ€™s the first thing that I read about my new little buddyโ€ฆ

โ€œIf you need a stone to help you get over a break-up, or help you to forgive yourself and others, this is the stone for you. Not only does it โ€œglueโ€ back together your own broken feelings, making you feel whole again, but enhances any new emotional bondsโ€.

Me thinks that me needed my new little friend. Maybe he needs some brothers and sisters.

Thank you :blush: I just was mind boggled when I got home and read that. It is true they call out to for a reason when they know that you need them.

I had a serpentine crystal fall randomly 2 days in a row. So I have been using it. The first property I thought of was calming/soothing and I had bad anxiety and depression. Itโ€™s been by my bedside. They know! They do have energy!

They really do. They know exactly what we need when we need it.

I swear Iโ€™m trying to hit the connection with my ex with everything that I can. Iโ€™ve got Kunzite, Blue Calcite, Green Aventurine, Chrysocolla, Amazonite, Black Tourmaline and Clear Quartz.

But I am very grateful to my little Chrysocolla friend. I really needed him. And heโ€™s very pretty haha.
