Stone of the Week: Moss Agate

I seem to be a week late on this one.  Normally, we have 100+ degree weather this time of year, but it’s been rainy here for the past week, feeling like an early autumn.  I love it!  Also late, because my friend just had her baby earlier in the week.  Well, let’s see what we…

Stone of the Week: Calcite

June, the Moon, and Water all have strong metaphysical connections.  This week, however, our Full Moon coincides with Midsummer.  The Sun is at its peak for the year, so no other stone seemed quite as fitting as Calcite.
