Dimensions: The size of the crystal chips is fairly consistent and most of the small crystals have at least one side 5mm long.
Crystal chip bracelets are small tumbled pieces of crystal strung together on an elastic thread. The difference between these bracelets and power bracelets is that power bracelets are specifically carved into spheres and these are left a more natural shape. They are smooth crystals so will not 'dig in' to your skin. They will carry the same properties as an equivalent power bracelet. The decision is purely which you would prefer to wear.
We say: Crystal chip bracelets are cheaper than power bracelets because there is not so much production involved in making the crystal stones the right shape for use. Also the crystals themselves are marginally smaller.
Dictionary Terms Explained
- Transformative, spiritual knowledge
Malachite is formed as a secondary product of the mineral copper, as the result of copper being altered by other chemicals. The large individual crystals are quite rare.
Malachite is a regenerative and transformative crystal. The energy of malachite reminds us of the need to transform ill feelings, grief, and dark thoughts that might feel like they are poisoning us into light, bright and pure thoughts. In a way, it's a bit like a recycler crystal, as it reminds us to release negative experiences, even ones you may not be able to recall. It is also a crystal that promotes intuition and raises awareness of sacred information and spiritual knowledge.
Care Guide: Due to the soft nature of this stone, we would not recommend cleansing this with water.
- Spiritual, intuition
Lapis lazuli is a combination of lazurite and calcite. Sometimes pyrite is also present.
Lapis lazuli, or lapis as it's often simply called, is a crystal that's oozing in spiritual energy. In a sense, it's a timeless stone, which symbolises our spiritual selves at their most expansive and wide open state, where we are able to learn anything we desire to know. As a tool, lapis lazuli can act as a reminder to us that the subtle spiritual realms are there and open to connection and exploration.
The energy of the stone reminds us that we really do hold the answers to anything we want to know deep inside ourselves. If you want to know about the meaning of life, or what a certain symbol means, or how to be more intuitive, these answers are really inside you. A teacher may help you sometimes, but ultimately we are the ones who take action. Sometimes, when learning, it is easy to get attached to a certain teacher or set of teachings. Lapis teaches that that can be fine, but we also need to remain open so that other possibilities can enter when needed. Wearing lapis can act as a signal that you're opening yourself up to the power of divine inspiration.
