On Thursday I went to a crystal shop in south Nicosia with a friend, intent on getting a Carnelian stone but, as everyone knows, who comes out of a crystal shop with only one stone? Certainly not me. So I ended up with a Carnelian stone and a number of pendants – Tree of Life; Tourmaline; Druzy Chalcedony, and a pendant and earring set which I call my Crone’s Stone. The stone is likely artificial but has lovely, rainbow colours in it and I consider it my Crone’s power stone as I pick up so much powerful energising vibrations from it. I’ve also included a photo of a piece of Obsidian from the Cappadoccia region of Turkey, which is an ancient trading centre with obsidian being an expensive commodity.
