This blog post marks the first in a new monthly series touching on the properties of various crystals and stones. For those new to crystals and gemstones I hope this can serve as a jumping-off point for your explorations into the fascinating mineral kingdom. I'm starting with sugilite, also known as luvulite. Sugilite was discovered in 1944 by a Japanese petrologist named Ken Sugi. Most deposits of this stone come from South Africa where there are manganese mines and it has been found in Japan and Canada as well as a few other locations. It is considered to be rare. Sugilite has a hardness of 5.5 to 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. Sugilite is called purple turquoise by some uninformed individuals, however the two stones are very different in their mineral content.
It is known in metaphysical circles as the ultimate love stone and stone of the Violet Ray. It is a virtual powerhouse of healing and all forms of psychic and spiritual protection. Sugilite protects the soul from shock and trauma, is said to aid in understanding answers to the big questions in life, such as "why am I here?", "where did I come from?", "what else do I need to understand?". It can teach you how to live from your truth and reminds the soul of its reasons for incarnating at this time. Sugilite can assist in all sorts of dreamwork, from releasing nightmares to conscious dream journeying. It is excellent for empaths, offering energetic protection from outside sources. Try meditating with sugilite and see if it doesn't enhance your connection to the higher realms. It is ideal for those working on furthering their intuitive development, channeling, automatic writing and can stimulate kundalini rising. It offers very strong protection from negativity of all kinds, including entities with mal intent, as well as being a very grounding stone. Simply put, it is a stone bursting with gifts for those on a spiritual path. As another source has said, if you're not serious about spiritual development you might want to steer clear of this stone! Check out this older blog post about how my super special sugilite came to me. That's it in the photo above. 💖 Just fyi, some of the info in that post is repeated here. To this day I swear that stone was guided to me by another soul I'm aware of as a soul mate and teacher of sorts, known from many other lifetimes. That connection is the subject of the ethereal fairy tale in this post. Have fun on your stone adventures! Next month: turquoise.
Doing something new and out of your comfort zone always involves a degree of trepidation. For me that new thing was embracing my intuitive gift after years of being told by a number of people (all of them intuitives/readers) that I can do this. Friends have gifted me a few tarot and oracle decks over the years as well but I just didn't get the message until the most recent person told me and she's also my manifesting coach so, inexplicably, I finally listened this time. And to incorporate intuitive work into jewelry, it was kind of a no-brainer to offer designs based on information I retrieve on the client's behalf of what crystals/stones can benefit them. These pieces are created for one person only.
This branch of work includes spirit animal work also. I will discover what spirit animal needs to communicate with my client. This may or may not be their prime animal totem. It may be an animal which carries an energy or quality they need to embody in their life. It may be a shadow animal, an animal which, in the physical, may elicit feelings of fear or disgust. However, this is just the creature to uncover and integrate shadow qualities. I can then create a talisman just for the client, using the correct metals for that person as I design their unique piece of jewelry.
Since this is a new endeavor for me, I'm offering a discount for the month of October for this work as I hone my skills. Click on either image above to go to the Custom Intuitive Jewelry page to learn more and order your own bespoke magical necklace!
I look forward to hearing from you and working with you,

In theory, you already know that you're the powerful Creator of your own experience ... right?
So why is it that some things seem SO HARD to manifest? Why is it that all of our efforts create absolutely no results sometimes?
It's enough to make us wonder whether the Law of Attraction might occasionally be glitchy, right?
That's why I wanted to share this terrific FREE resource.
It's a webinar called "Akashic Records: Manifesting Demystified" and whether you've ever heard of the Akashic Records or not, this webinar will explain manifesting in a completely new, grounded and practical way that will explain why you may have been experiencing struggles.
