WHY ARE CRYSTALS THE PERFECT GIFT?

WHY ARE CRYSTALS THE PERFECT GIFT?

Gift-giving is truly gratifying, but it doesn’t always mean it’s stress-free. In a time where many “have it all” and another bottle of perfume can easily turn into clutter, a well thought-out present is all we ever wish for – both while giving and receiving.

CRYSTALS HAVE NO EXPIRY DATE

Intentional gift giving is at the forefront of our purchases, and not without a reason.

The whole point of a gift is to spark joy. And you can only guess the joy felt when your gift keeps on working for you day and night for years ahead – energetically, cheering you on on the sidelines with their unique structures and range of colours, which last and serve not just for a season.

OUR ANCESTORS USED THEM!

Tell your lucky recipient stories of ancient civilisations who used crystals in their everyday lives – and explore their role in traditions, rituals and customs which are returning to the modern era.

 

Did you know Romans used crystals as amulets and talismans to attract good health and prosperity? They wore Amber, Amethyst, Carnelian, Garnet, Jet and Topaz rings – with Carnelian being the Romans' favourite.

 

But that’s not all! The crystal of self-awareness, Lapis Lazuli, was worn by Cleopatra (Cleopatra VII), and Egyptians considered Peridot “the gem of the Sun”. It is also believed that Cleopatra reintroduced the use of Agate, Carnelian, Amethyst and Clear Quartz crystals as protective amulets in the form of necklaces and ornaments.

 

Many also use crystals in Ayurveda to balance the effects of Astrology and karma, as a sign of healing for the subconscious, to ionise the space and balance doshas. These include Jasper, Hematite, Rose Quartz and more.

YOU CAN TAILOR YOUR GIFT TO A SPECIFIC NEED

That’s why crystals make for an ideal gift. With each crystal’s unique structure and properties, picking out those which will aid the recipient most is so much fun!

But besides the fun, it’s your pure intention poured, with each one chosen for a specific reason: the receiver’s life situation, an indescribable pull, or an irresistible sparkle.

So if you want your
gifts to be...

Thoughtful |  One of a kind |  Useful |  Natural |  Exciting, to everyone! |  Thousands of years old |  Energy-amplifying and…Absolutely stunning  😉

...check out our picks of gemmy goodies below. But don’t limit yourself! You’re free as a bird to follow your instinct. Afterall, it’s you who knows your people most.
