Hi, another picture of that rock.
Hi, as a rookie rock hunter, I found this rock on the beach and I was wondering what kind of rock it is? It might help to say that in front of the flashlight it is kind of a light see through rock.
It looks to be Calcite – Nice! Has crystalline form too – what a find!!!
Does wearing different stones together matter
Hi James, generally it is fine, as with most things their are exceptions that will be unique to you as an individual. You will get an intuitive heads up on that as if that were to happen, it would just not feel/look right. So in short, feel free to mix n match. The golden tip is, if it feels right for you, then it is.
I just bought a enhydro agate and I can tell when I’m not carrying it. When I put it down I miss it. What’s going on? It’s a little scary.
Hi James, OK, nothing to worry about. This is a intuition/subconscious thing. The Agate is working well for you, I would assume on many levels. Thus when you put it down, you experience the feeling the emotion of missing it, and your conscious mind does not quite know what to make of the feeling that is seemingly “illogical” and coming from nowhere. For many when working with crystals for the first time, the logical mind tries to pigeon hole stuff/place in a box, and when it cannot find a box from past experiences to assign this emotion too, it sends itself into a bit of a tailspin of unease. My advice – just relax, and got with the flow, as you build up experience, the logical mind will get used to just making a new box for these experiences to exist in.
I have just started to be interested in crystals and chanced upon your wonderful site. My mum , who has recently passed, left some crystals and I was wondering if you could kindly help identify this particular one. What kind of crystal is it and does the triangle in the center have any meaning?
Thank you so much.
The stone in the ring is Agate. That pattern is called by some the Eye of Horus. A reference to an Egyptian symbol.
