They have adorned crowns on Emperors, robes on Queens and even the breastplate of Aaron. Stones and crystals can be used to help in maintaining balance, focus, centeredness, mental clarity as well as, physical and emotional stability. In honor of St. Patrick's day, I will be suggesting some of the best stone associated with good luck over the centuries.
This is the mineral gypsum. Its white/clear striated crystaline body is a sheer source of calming, spiritual light. It works with the higher spiritual Chakra in accessing our higer consciousness, spirit guides and the angelic realm. Beacuse of its striations, like tourmaline, it works along the spinal column grounding and anchoring our Earth vibration and utilizing kundalini to rise freely up our light body stimulating each center as it vibrates.

History: This distant cousin of calcite, selenite belongs to the Satin-Spar crystal family along with Aragonite. Selenite (CaSO4Â·2H2O) is a hydrous calcium sulfate, as it is composed of oxygen, sulfur, hydrogen, calcium and water. Selenite has been found in a variety of environments and geological locations and growing in different forms Found floating in beds of clay not attached to any type of matrix or host stone. Selenite can grown in curved patterns and flower-like petals and are called Desert Rose. One of the most beautiful Selenite formations in the world is the Cave of Swords in Chihuahua Mexico. Over 97 million years ago water began seeping through ancient limestone formations dissolving the sulfide ores within producing a sulfuric acid. The water also absorbed large amounts of calcium and as this reacted with oxygen and hydrogen, Selenite "swords" or "wands" began growing. Specimens from the Cave of Swords are some of the clearest and largest in the world.
