Rainbow fluorite crystals are one of the most beautiful crystals on this earth. According to crystal lore, fluorite is said to be the home to rainbows. Each and every one of them is full of dimension and color, having a sacred world inside the crystal. The minute you hold one of these green, purple crystals in your hands, you can breathe a little deeper and be more conscious of the present moment. It brings order to chaos, helping to restore balance in any situation. Heather recommends Fluorite for any parent wishing to increase their patience level and regain patience with their kids. Fluorite also acts as an energetic vacuum cleaner for your mind, clearing it of scattered thoughts, negativity and thoughts that no longer serve you. Its a gemstone that helps you go with the flow and stay connected with your goals and truths. Keep a fluorite point or crystal in your sacred space and on your desk at work to draw focus and keep a calm demeanor. Hold purple fluorite and focus on any issues troubling you, especially if you have been emotionally or physically unwell for some time and nothing seems to be helping.
Lilac Lepidolite is one of the most beneficial crystals for peace, calming, trust and acceptance. Due to the presence of Lithium in these purple gemstones, lepidolite naturally has a strong relaxing and balancing effect, making it one of the best crystals for anxiety, depression and stress relief. When times are tough, holding lepidolite restores hope for the future and reinforces self-love, optimism and faith within yourself. These purple stones are one of our favorite yoga crystals to place on the top edge of our mat. During savasana, move your piece of lepidolite over your heart chakra or third eye to deepen your meditation and give yourself a “healing treatment” at the end of your practice. Keep lepidolite near you while you study to boost your concentration. Meditate with it to release unkind or negative feelings you may be holding onto. Place lepidolite in the places you tend to spend the most time to help ease and lift depression.
