Ancient Talisman and symbols of good luck, crystals have been faceted into necklaces, bracelets, carried in pockets and used in every form for healing. 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.
Fairy Cross is a talisman of good luck! Historically, this stone is said to be formed from the tears of fairies when they were brought the news of the death of Christ. Formed in the shape of a cross, this amazing stone is beautiful and powerful on your alter or meditation space, around your neck or in your pocket. Represents four elements and joining of spirit with earth/matter. Spirituality, compassion, allowing, dis-attachment. Focus centered on the here and now. This stone provides protection and grounding energy and therefore, is most often used at the Root Chakra.
Folk Remedies: This stone is said to provide a connection between the physical, astral and extra-terrestrial planes. It can provide an overpowering "release" in stressful situations and provides support, initiation and incentive in dealing with detrimental habits. Used for addiction, especially for those who wish to stop smoking, this stone helps to transform ones' healing experience. This stone provides grounding energy. For this reason, it is a great stone for reducing fever and has historically been used to treat depression.
Feng Shui: Use staurolite in the Center area for grounding or Northwest area to insure safe travel. Carry with you as a talisman of safety, grounding and good luck.
History: This beautiful and rare stone crystallizes in the form of flat and short prismatic crystals with cruciform crossing or cross-like extrusions. This twinning of crystals occur frequently at right angles to create a cross shape. Taking it's name from the Greek word, 'stauros" meaning cross, this stone has been carried in processions of faith and worn as a talisman for centuries.
