Stone of the Week: Rhodochrosite

We move out of Leo next week, but before we make that transition, let’s take another look at that big lion heart.  Rhodochrosite is such a positive stone.  It lifts the spirits and curbs intensity.  If you’re feeling a little doubtful, this is a great gem to remind you that you’re worthy of love and…

Stone of the Week: Emerald

Do you feel loved?  I love and appreciate every one of you that takes the time to read my blog.  This week, I’m tackling the May birthstone, which I actually have in my possession (shock!).  Emerald is actually one of the easier stones to acquire, unlike diamond and sapphire, and has so many uses.  When…

Stone of the Week: Bloodstone
