Crystals are little sparkly wonders of nature that have been worn and carried for legit centuries to deliver protection, healing, or power to the wearer. Many believe that each crystal’s unique shape and structure stores energy that vibrates at frequencies that our mind and bodies subliminally resonate with. And that all sounds pretty cool.
Even cooler is that some of them vibrate on a level with certain emotional states, and therefore have the potential to attract other people who resonate with those emotional states too. *pause for your mind to be fully blown* Crystals can amplify you becoming what you wish to attract, aka make you a boo magnet! It’s just a case of picking the right one. So I tapped jewelry designer Clare Gregory—founder of U.K. alternative jewelry brand Bone Arrow—for her selects.
For on-fire sex: opal
Opal is a super seductive stone, associated with love and passion, desire and eroticism. It can be used to intensify what you’re feeling and to release inhibitions. It’s like a crystal sex aide.
For feeling self-partnered and happy, thanks for asking: rose quartz
Rose quartz is the crystal of love. As a stone of the heart, rose quartz brings peace, tenderness, and healing, encouraging self-love and contentment. With its soothing vibes, rose quartz is said to also ease feelings of jealousy and resentment and can help to heal a broken heart, teaching you to love yourself.
For attracting a new boo: rhodochrosite
This stone can guide you in the quest for emotional happiness, help you move forward after a period of doubt, and express love toward others without fear of rejection. Rhodochrosite’s cheery energy encourages you to enjoy life. It can help you move from one love-chapter to the next, attracting someone who matches your optimistic vibes.
For having “the talk”: ruby
The birthstone for July is a stone of prosperity, passion, and love. Amplifying energy and increasing vitality, ruby promotes courage, aids concentration and brings a sense of power and self-confidence to the wearer. It’s just the ticket if you’re going to ask ~the object of affection~ out (finally), or are perhaps trying to nudge someone take your relationship to the next level.
For actually surviving V-Day while you’re going through a breakup: garnet
Garnet is a crystal of passion, success, and manifestation. In situations where there seems to be no way out it brings courage and hope, so, if you are facing a tough time, garnet is your ally. It also helps you to let go of things which no longer serve you (the ex) and brings into your life that which is needed (a red-hot sex machine).
For your boo (aka a Valentine-Day gift that isn’t chocolate): emerald
Literally called the Stone of Successful Love, emerald opens and nurtures the heart. Its soothing energy provides healing on all levels, bringing freshness and vitality to the spirit. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love. Emerald promotes friendship and balance between partners, and is particularly known for amplifying domestic bliss, contentment, and loyalty.
