Do you sense a relationship blossoming with world around you? Whether it’s a new friendship, crush, or long-term lover, rose quartz will help you channel those romantic feelings. Spring is also a great time to work on that relationship with yourself.  Thankfully, rose quartz is also good for self-love and self care. The pretty pastel and soft feel of the stone can serve as a visual reminder to appreciate and take time for yourself.





Trying to be a bit ~bolder~ this spring? Seek no further than a nice hunk of carnelian.  Carnelian is the stone of courage. It inspires carriers to go big and bring good luck along the way.  If you can figure out what you want most out of this spring, grab yourself some carnelian and make it happen!


We hope that you take some time to find crystals that hold meaning for you and bring inspiration for the change of the season.  Here’s to hoping that spring totally rocks (pun intended)!
