I got stoned today. Except that I was not very helpless and the three (3) stones “thrown” at me did not bring death, but energy and other good qualities of life.

Amethyst – The stone of spirituality


Amethyst – to the Spirit

This purple shaded stone of spirituality calms the mind and helps when I am stuck in negative emotions such as anger, hatred and guilt. It brings calmness and clarity if I might experience anxiety and confusion.

“The god of wine, Bacchus, was insulted one day by a mere mortal. He swore the next mortal that crossed his path, would be attacked by his fierce tigers. Along came a beautiful maiden named Amethyst. Goddess Diana turned Amethyst in a beautiful statue of quartz to save her from the tigers claws. Remorseful Bacchus wept tears of wine over the stone maiden, creating a lively purple stone.”

Rose Quartz – The stone of universal love

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz – to the Heart

Soothes my heart and heals emotional wounds from the past. Opens my heart to the beauty within and all around us. Enhances and attracts all forms of love.

Tiger’s Eye – The stone of self discipline

Tiger's Eye

Tiger’s Eye – to the Mind

Promotes balance and strength to get through difficult phases in my life; Think of the qualities of the Tiger. Patient, focused, determined, alert with perfect timing and slow, deliberate action. Tiger’s Eye offers me protection and strengthens my confidence during my travels. Also Roman soldiers wore Tiger’s Eye for protection in battle. My favourite stone, the Tiger’s Eye, can be found in my favourite country – South Africa. Peace out!
