Crystals and their properties

Crystals and their properties

There is a whole world of different crystals and healing gemstones available to us.

So of course it can feel overwhelming to know which stone you want to welcome into your world, to work on something so intimate and sensitive that is your Yoni / Vagina.

One of the most important lessons that crystals teach us, is the reminder to tune in and listen to our own intuition and to trust that we have the knowledge we need.

Our body, mind, and soul are all connected and we are made up of the same exact energy, particles and atoms of everything in the Universe.

If we can tap into that power, we can listen to the signs and messages that the world has to show us.

Finding the right crystal means feeling into which ones you are drawn to (or which ones are drawn to you).

Even by just hearing a crystals name, seeing a picture, or reading a blurb – you may feel a nudge deep down inside that is calling you to that exact stone.

Each crystal also comes with its own healing properties.

As we sometimes have awareness of our own strengths and weaknesses, we can choose healing crystals based on their specific traits to help guide us.




How Amethyst is formed is an absolutely exquisite journey:

First of all, Amethyst needs a hollow rock, a space in which a crystal crater can form and grow. These crystals are formed inside pyrogenic volcanic rocks referred to as basalts and these are the direct result of volcanic lava.

These rocks then become the very vessels for creating the formation of amethyst by way of minerals and water combining over time.

Amethyst crystals form against the inside rocks of the basalt, from where it is then later extracted and mined.

The second ingredient in the formation process is the actual environment in which the amethyst is formed: in order for amethyst to form, both silica and ferric iron must be present in the water.

To this particular end, because of its rock-forming properties, silicon dioxide is a key ingredient in the formation of this beautiful purple feature.

In addition to these key components being present in water, there also needs to be present, something called gamma irradiation. This stimulates key processes on the very inside of the volcanic rock.

The process by which amethyst is formed, then, includes varying levels of carbon, calcium, and oxygen.

The third and final ingredient is perhaps the most precious commodity of them all: time.

For amethyst to form, millions of years must have passed, which only adds to the incredible process. It is also this particular factor that gives value to amethyst crystals.

This also means that all natural Amethyst geodes from which these sleek luxurious wands are carved from, are older than humanity.

La crème de la crème for your self pleasure sessions… To weave your pleasure in space and timelessness.


Amethyst is known as one of the master Crystals. It gets its name from the Greek amethystos, meaning “not intoxicated” as they believed that the semiprecious stone would guard them against drunkenness, underlining the support it can provide when it comes to any sorts of addictions.

In ancient times, Medieval soldiers wore amulets made of amethyst to protect themselves during battle as they believed the stone possessed healing powers. 

In Tibet, Amethyst is considered sacred and is used to produce prayer beads.

In the world of crystal healing, amethyst is believed to help purify the mind and reduce stress and anxiety.

To this end, the stone is often used in meditation. It creates a protective energy field around its carrier, assisting in transmuting negative energies within the wearer and protecting them from external negative energies like geopathic or electromagnetic stress.

It is also a natural tranquilliser, it relieves stress and strain, soothes irritability, balances mood swings, dispels anger, rage, fear and anxiety and helps insomnia sufferers sleep more easily.

Physically Amethyst is said to boost hormone production, tune the endocrine system and metabolism, strengthens the immune system, reduces pain and strengthens the body aiding in tissue regeneration.

Fun fact: Clear Quartz was thought of as frozen water / ice in earlier eras because it was always so cool to the touch. It is a mineral made of oxygen and silicone atoms with a vitreous luster.

Making up to 12% of the land’s surface and 20% of the Earth’s crust, Clear Quartz is the most common mineral found in the Earth’s crust underlying how accessible and useful it is for humanity.

It gets formed naturally when silica-rich solutions occur in the underground cracks and crevices in the earth’s crust. These allow for unlimited expansion of quartz clusters.


Spiritually, Clear Quartz is known as the “Master Healer”.

It’s an amazing amplifying stone, meaning that whatever you pour into it, will pour out tenfold. The clarity of its many faces can spark memory, hone concentration, and bring your whole being back to balance.

It balances and revitalises the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes. Cleanses and enhances the organs and subtle bodies and acts as a deep soul cleanser, connecting the physical dimension with the mind.

Clear Quartz enhances psychic abilities, it aids concentration and unlocks memory and stimulates the immune system and is said to bring the body into balance and harmonise all the chakras.

Like other types of quartz, most rose quartz is formed through the process of magma crystallization, making magmatic pegmatites the primary source of larger rose quartz crystals.

However, this is not the only possible method of formation, as this mineral can also be found in hydrothermal veins.

It is believed that the stone owes its beautiful color to the presence of manganese, iron, and titanium, but other research suggests that the specific coloration is caused by the infiltration of fibers of borosilicate.


Spiritually and energetically, Rose Quartz is the Queen, the stone of the heart, the crystal of unconditional and love. It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort.

It can softly open your heart, bring back the warm glow of trust, and help you to step forward in tenderness. The mantra of this blushing and beautiful stone is to align everything we do with love and compassion. It can create strong maternal bonds – not only externally, but also internally for those who need to learn how to be kinder inside.

It reawakens the heart to its own innate love, it provides a deep sense of personal fulfilment and contentment, allowing one the capacity to truly give and receive love from others. It dissolves the sorrows, worries, fears, and resentments suppressing the heart’s ability to give and receive love.

Your’s truly favorite crystal to practice de-armoring and self pleasure.

Black Obsidian’s creation is quite simple yet incredibly potent. It is a volcanic glass that forms naturally, created by the rapid cooling of viscous lava from volcanoes into the cold salty waters of the ocean.

A dark vitreous luster thus, is born.


Its crystal properties are known for their stabilising and grounding effects, making it an excellent crystal for reigning in scattered energies as it is birthed from the contact of incandescent raw energy of the volcanic lava with the coolness of the sea waters.

When your head is lost up in the clouds, it can cause unwelcome side effects, including procrastination and feelings of isolation. Its sharp edges are symbolic of piercing through the darkness to find the light, making it an excellent aid for working with stored trauma, integrating it and letting it go.

If you find yourself getting lost down the rabbit hole of spirituality, the Obsidian crystal makes an excellent tonic for restoring a harmonious balance between your spiritual self and the physical world of reality.

Use the Obsidian properties to anchor yourself securely into the earth, keeping your eyes on the stars and your feet planted firmly on the ground. Its deep, transformative vibes also help enhance the stones around it, making it a big-time magnifier of healing energy.

The Obsidian stone also makes a trusted companion to carry with you during a healing process, especially one that unfolds over time. It gives us the strength and patience needed to overcome challenges, no matter how long the journey takes.

Origin: USA, Oregon mines.




Jade is another remarkable stone, and is like a time capsule. It holds important clues about some of Earth’s big events, like earthquakes, mountain building, and plate collisions.

Jade is formed deep inside the Earth: when earthquakes come, the rocks and plates that are rubbing against each other break and shatter, forming small cracks. Water is then squeezed out of the rock under the high pressures deep inside Earth. 

The escaping water rises along the cracks in the rocks. The water is full of dissolved minerals. As it flows through the cracks, it leaves jade behind, causing the cracks to get clogged.

When another shift or earthquake occurs, the old crack or a new one opens. More water with dissolved jade passes through the cracks and a new layer of jade is formed. This process repeats over and over again…

For large jade deposits to form, it must take millions of earthquakes.

Each piece of Nephrite Jade has incredible and unique patterns and changes in colors because each layer of it is like a record of what went on deep inside Earth long ago.


On a spiritual and energetic level, Jade is one of the most famed healing crystals known for bringing lashings of good luck to all who use it.

Jade has been around for thousands and thousands of years and its impact on humanity can be found scattered across the globe, in many tribes, towns, and tributaries that connect the world. It can be traced in China, Russia, and the USA among other places.

Nephrite Jade has a shinier more resin-like luster to its green color and is rich in calcium-magnesium. Along with shining light on the spiritual world, it can also help the nervous system to heal. 

The most historic and commonly used Yoni Egg is made of Nefrite Jade for its quality of making the process of sexual cultivation manageable and harmonic.

Jade is also referred to as “Dragon Sperm” in Traditional Chinese Medicine to underline the power of the stone to work with sexual energy.

Carnelian is also formed within ancient volcanic lava or igneous rocks.

Hot volcanic magma rises to the surface crust of the earth and begins to cool down. As the soft, warm molten rock cools and hardens, gas bubbles form as well as cracks and cavities where magma flows overlapped or cooled at different rates.

The magma hardens into rock and the gasses escape leaving little pockets of space and into these pockets with flush down silica and settle in there. 

Over time these fluids form crystals which are influenced by changes in pressure, temperature and other mineral impurities which can enter the cavity.

In the case of Carnelian the impurity usually consists of minute elements of iron which gives it its special rusty color.


Energetically and spiritually, Carnelian is known as the “Artist’s Stone”, Carnelian is a silica mineral that takes its color from iron oxide and has taken up the mantle of many roles in ancient times.

The Egyptians considered Carnelian to be blessed with feminine energy and the menstrual cycle, it was a stone of fertility and linked to the power of Isis.

This stone stirs up fertility and even for those not wanting to go down that path, it can be an amazing aid in giving your libido a boost and helping you to fully step into the fire of your own sexual identity and power.

The name of Carnelian comes from the Latin word meaning ‘flesh’ which perhaps speaks to its reminder that we are flesh and blood and we should make the most of the here and now. 

Carnelian was considered to be a stone that helped timid speakers to raise their voices, invites you to write, paint, dance and sing and it does so, by stimulating warmth and heat, loosening the limbs, letting energy flow, and encouraging you to embrace your inner child and say a sweet yes to spontaneity.


  • Stimulates the tissues and organs
  • Boosts libido
  • Detoxes
  • Artistic expression

The formation of Jasper can begin when loose sediments become stuck together. 

This happens when ground water containing silica that has seeped into sedimentary rock subsequently dries up.

The silica then acts like glue and cements everything together.

The different sediments determine the colour of the stone. Patterns are often the result of the motion of natural forces that brought the sediment (or volcanic ash) together.

Jasper can also develop through the crystallisation of hot solutions in cracks of igneous rocks.

Red Jasper is an opaque version of quartz with a vitreous luster and opaque transparency and its meaning is grounding, passion, and protection.


Energetically and spiritually it is known as the supreme nurturer, it’s no surprise that this is one of the healing crystals you turn to in times of needing warm comfort.

Beautifully aligned with the root chakra, Red Jasper comes with incredible grounding properties, inviting you to keep one foot firmly on the floor no matter how high you are flying. It’s a crystal that brings balance, stamina, courage, and the inner strength of a warrior. It’s lush, it’s deep, and it’s utterly nurturing for the soul.

Red Jasper can be used across the board to help heal sexual issues in couples and individuals. It enhances the power of tantra, it promotes sexual interest and compatibility with your partner, and it stirs up individual stimulation leading to creative courage, a fiery passion, and a healthy attitude towards sex.. it is known for keeping the blood circulatory system strong and the body in a constant state of detox. 

If you feel like you go through life a little on the numb side, struggling to spark creativity and stoke your inner fire of self-confidence, then Red Jasper can help to raise your personal passion levels. Passion applies to everything, not just what goes on between the sheets. We need passion to live fulfilling lives.
