With the heat “on” and people sharing how hot it’s been with summer kicking in (wishing things would cool off a bit), I thought I’d share this article I wrote a few years back about how choosing a crystal for its calming properties can help soothe your summer heat experience and help return balance and harmony to your life.

Every little bit of support we can get is helpful right? And when we’re feeling like a lot is going on in our lives, coupled with the temperatures rising, it can sure be nice to alleviate hitting the “boiling point.” 🙂
I’ll always share how I find crystals to be amazingly supportive friends and I’ll continue to provide supportive information, as well as steward crystals, as long as I’m guided to and people are desiring the connections.
That being said, the crystal friend fun continues with some more new additions to the Crystal Illumination family. You’ll find that I will be continually adding new crystalline energies (including Crystal Illuminations sacred paintings, as well as individual crystals) to my Etsy Shop as I have time to post them.
Some of the new crystals featured include two new pendants that I just adore and two magical Moldavite (as you see pictured here – click to enlarge), as well as Andaras, and some animal totem stones. Not to mention of course there are a variety of other crystal friends for individual needs…all potent, precious, and perfectly attuned to the current energies, as well as embody the “cooling” and calming effect that was mentioned in the article above.
You’ll discover crystals for all price points and desires, including very high end to extremely affordable. To see more images of the featured pieces you see here, visit the link below.

Everything is intuitively chosen for the vibrational frequency each crystal friend emanates and infused with Reiki Love.
If you have any questions or are particularly interested in a specific crystal you may not see in the shop, you can message me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’d be happy to assist in helping you find something perfect for you.
Having discovered the power of crystals in my own life, drawing upon lifetimes of work with them, and how much they can support and assist us into our wholeness, part of my work has been to steward and vibrationally support specific crystals and connect them with their keepers. I’ve also come to see that the powerful crystals that remain with me, have in mirror to my own expanded work, reflected that they will collectively be working with others alongside the work they do with me.
I’m very excited about the messages in terms of this that I’ve received while in Bimini over last week’s retreat and having seen how the crystals I brought with me (as I do each time on sacred journeys) have assisted others and the collective energy we are working with, it’s really something I embrace wholeheartedly.
That being said, I am also happy to announce that there are several new crystal friends available in my Etsy Shop – Crystal Illumination – where you can find an array of crystal friends from Andaras, pocket animal totem stones I recently picked up (rabbits of course are available, as I felt guided to bring a bit of their magic to you, having come to know their magic in my own life), the highest quality Moldavite, Aquamarine, Lemurian Seed Crystal, Tibetan Quartz, and more, including Crystal Illuminations sacred paintings.
Everything is intuitively chosen for the vibrational frequency each crystal friend emanates. Keep checking back, as there will be more crystal friends and crystal paintings once I have time to post and get things up, as well as complete creations.

I remember when I first discovered Moldavite several years ago around 2006, and the amazing impact it had in my life. Finding a stone that was of extraterrestrial origin that integrated high-vibrational Earth consciousness, felt so aligned for me. Not to mention, I was excited about its powerful energy that helps the opening of your Cosmic Heart and supports making major shifts.
You see featured here in this post one of the most amazing and highest guality Moldavite in my collection – a super fine specimen that is out of this world both in energy and rarity. You can see the way that Moldavite goes from a very dark green when just held and not in the light, to a very luminescent and translucent light green when held up to the light. Amazing!
In my post a couple of years ago on Moldavite I spoke about how it “is a definite and powerful Chakra opener and activator, particularly resonating with the Heart, 3rd Eye, and Crown Chakras. Although its energy tends to first move to wherever it is most needed in the physical and etheric bodies, it will settle and center in the heart. Moldavite is a great stone to work with on a personal and collective level in your healing work, practices, and meditations. Its transformative qualities, begins a process of energetic resonance throughout one’s entire being, thus raising the vibration. There are many benefits of this stone, and exposure to it, including, activating the dream state when worn while sleeping, helping one to acclimate to the Earth plane environment if feeling not part of this world (especially in the case of Star Children), helps foster a deeper level of compassion and understanding for the human realities of the physical plane, aids in expansion of consciousness and rapid transformation in one’s life – aiding the release of those things that do not serve one’s highest path, visionary experiences, increased clarity, vibrational raising of both yourself and the Earth, energy cleansing, strengthens, aids in self discovery and enlightenment, cosmic and crystal consciousness, expansion, and even contact with interdimensional energies, and the list goes on…”

And as the years roll on, more and more new powerful and magical crystal and stone friend discoveries continue and their discovery is always divinely aligned with personal and collective needs that support the vibrational shifts currently being integrated, and some times coming in ahead of time to start being prepared energetically to be there when others are ready.
For a while I had not been acquiring any new crystals, as I had acquired quite the collection over the years enough to have my own mega-store. Lol! And over time most have found their homes I had helped prepare them for. I take my work as a crystal keeper very seriously and I honor the crystals and stones with utmost respect and love.
More recently I have been being led to channel through more friends, as an increase in conscious awareness and readiness steps up. And this has currently brought me to the creation of Crystal Illuminations, as well as bringing through powerful pieces that are ready for their roles.
Yesterday I was able to take a small break at the Gem Faire here, which is two minutes from my home, conveniently ;), and visited one of my favorite crystal suppliers solely. I have become very attuned, over time, to letting myself be guided only to where the vibrations resonate, especially where crystals are concerned.
Back in the day, when I first was exploring the crystal realm, I remember being overloaded and my energy being pulled every which way and being energetically through the roof because of all the crystal energy around at places like gem shows and crystal stores. It also took me time to learn to differentiate between crystals really “needing” to come home with me and those that were just vibing with me, and of course my own mind was making decisions rather than my heart.
I no longer experience this, as I have learned to become balanced and centered in my energy, finding grounding, and can tune in only to the vibrations of highest resonance that are calling while weeding out the rest through a funneled boundary. I also come equipped with my trusty pendulum and ask the important questions when I am feeling each crystal out energetically.
I was so focused in my mission at the faire to bring home the crystals ready for service through me, which made things easy and quick, that I had forgotten the feelings I used to experience. So it was interesting when I started hearing conversations from people feeling pulled all over and talking about how their pocket books were going through the ringer because of it. I also had opportunity to talk with one man who was fascinated with what I was doing and using my pendulum, and our conversation helped him to find what he was there for – he was new to the crystal world, at least in this life go around.
Then two women at the same area that I was at, who do different forms of energy work as their professions, were talking about all of the energy and feeling blown out and needing to ground. They were giving each other clearing with two giant Selenite wands from the man whose crystals we were browsing, running them along both sides of their body up and down.
We engaged briefly in conversation and then the woman asked if I wanted her to clear me of all of the energy and before I said anything, the crystal keeper of the shop, who I believe is also a Reiki Master, said, “Her energy looks clear to me.” But I did welcome her to briefly run the Selenite wands down me, as I had taken notice of these wands before, and what I experienced was a raise in my body temperature like an internal heat thermostat rising rapidly and overheating, which for me translated into a feeling of an increase rather than grounding for me, which was opposite to the effects they were experiencing. 🙂 I think it also had to do with the fact that I had been holding a tray of all of the crystals I intuitively had chosen so far and combined with the Selenite wands, created that effect. I felt immediately back to my regulated balance, which to me spoke to my grounding abilities I’ve learned to center in. But interestingly, just previous to her doing this I had noted a stone that I was super drawn to and once she was done I picked it up, coming to find it was a very grounding and Earthy crystal and so this was perfect synchronicity.
It’s fun to observe the evolution of things over time. Needless to say, I found some amazing new crystals and stones that I’m very excited to be working with and bringing into their glory as Crystal Illuminations. Some of the pieces are well known friends of mine, but many are new and carry energy I believe will resonate immensely with many of you going through current shifts I know you are experiencing. I know I wanted some of all of them myself, but I was very poignant in only taking home what was for the highest good collectively.
Here are the crystal friends I brought home that you can look forward to (which include some new discoveries):
Ocean Jasper, Kambaba Stone, Rainbow Moonstone, Staurolite, Tiffany Stone, Blue Tiger’s Eye, Emerald, Lepidolite, Chiastolite, Amazonite, Charoite, Sunstone, Covellite, Prehnite, Preseli Stone, Natural Blue Topaz, Pyrrhotite, Que Sera, Green Garnet, Stibnite, Merlinite, Green Kyanite, Mystic Merlinite, Golden Healer Lemurian, Shaman Heart Lemurian, and Nuummite!
Wow is all I can say!
And, as mentioned in a previous post, here are others that are also soon to be available, which I had acquired before:
Malachite, Jade, Lapis Lazuli, Moldavite, Herkimer Diamond, various Fluorite, Lingam, Apache Tears, Selenite, Lepidolite, Sugilite, Libyan Desert Glass Tektite, Calcite, Fire Agate, Singing Quartz Wands, Tangerine Lemurian Seed Quartz, Pink Lemurian Seed Quartz, Faery Quartz, Angelite, Agate, Carnelian, Amethyst, Kyanite, as well as carved sacred Animal Guides, magical Andaras, and a special “Sea Treasures” sacred piece.
If any of these crystal and stone energies call to you, you can commission them by contacting me. A few may be available as stand-alone sacred healing crystals, but most will be infused into new sacred paintings as a source of light in your life, from the inside out.
I will be creating and offering them in the order of intuitive guidance. So if there is one in particular you specifically are drawn to, let me know and it can be created first. As you can see there are a ton here that will keep me very busy in creative channeling mode.
I’m so looking forward to it and sharing these new friends with you.

The Heart is the gateway for expressing the inexpressible and allows one to experience so much more than what we think is possible. It supports harmonious evolution and integration when we are centered in that space of unconditional compassion, presence, patience and love.
It is from this powerful and divine Heart space that Emerald Bridge emerged – my company- and the image you see here was revealed and created.
Loving to spread the love, we then created Emerald Bridge sacred temporary tattoos so that everyone could share and empower that unconditionally loving energy in energetic emanation!
You can purchase your own sacred temporary tattoos as pictured above, here: Emerald Bridge
The Heart Chakra lies center of our Chakra system and is the “bridge” between the three lower and three upper Chakras, making it Chakra #4. It acts as an integrator, blending the beauty and experience of all of our parts into a transmutable green brilliance (synonymous with the crystalline being known as Emerald), which symbolizes its essence and also embodies an abundant healing energy. Emeralds are known as the “Stones of Successful Love,” bringing not only prosperity and abundance, but also act as integrators of the mind and the heart in opening and stimulating both capacities.
Moldavite is another emerald-hued, crystalline being that powerfully vibrates the Heart Chakra energy. I like to call it the “Emerald Gem of the Galactic Heart,” as it resonates a powerful, Universal Love energy that reflects the Earth and beyond.
I love crystals because to me they are like an organic journey of the Heart, synchronizing our Living Earth with Divine Oneness. This is why I not only have a very unique personal collection of crystalline friends, but I have a passion for creating loving crystal pendants to support empowering human evolution!

This piece is extremely unique. Photos will never capture its beauty. It changes shades of color depending on how the light hits it. It will at times seem amber with darker brown inclusions, then it will also turn olive green and when held to direct light, will be pale yellow. It is a fantastic and potent tektite. It has portals and many unique inclusions and small rocks amidst the meteoric silica. The shape is also quite extraordinary. The first time I saw it, I felt buffalo instantly, as it has the distinct shape and energy of a buffalo head. You may also see it as an arrowhead or triangular pyramid. This is a very powerful piece that definitely is very unisex.
“Cosmic Bridge Builder” measures about 1 7/8″ long and about 1 1/8″ at the widest point. It is quite substantial at a little over 1″ thick. Parts of it are translucent and others are deeply layered. There is the feeling of an energy or world within an energy/world and the feeling of galaxies within this living being. It is like an ancient, cosmic entity that is alive with brain activity. A compact powerhouse!
Price: $175 plus shipping and handling
I previously posted a blog of my article I wrote on Libyan Desert Glass Tektite. Instead of reposting, you may read about this potent stone at the link below. The Article is called:
The images below show the variations in color, depending on the lighting. From darker (olive green), to medium (amber), to light (golden yellow). Amazing!
I was drawn to intuitively check in today after a flow of inspiration was coming in and received guidance that some of my crystal creations are highly activated in seeking out their keepers right now, some of which are below and include the amazing Libyan Desert Glass Tektite, amongst other potent crystals. They are eager to align in helping to shift the earth energies that comes with synergizing into union with their chosen companions to support in healing. In light of this I am offering these four amazing pieces at very special prices. If you feel called to one, do let me know. (Shipping will be added to the prices reflected.) If you would like more information about the properties of the given crystals let me know and I will send that to you. Read on to discover the magic of Libyan Desert Glass Tektite.
The paraphrased words on Moldavite from “Love is in the Earth” author, Melody: “A pathway of inter-dimensional access to the highest Galactic energies, bringing higher thought forms and patterns through to the Earth plane. A multi-dimensional passage into other realms” equally apply to Libyan Desert Glass. The difference between the two being that Libyan Desert Glass is said to operate with direct focus on the Vishudda (throat) and Anahata (heart) centers, rather than operating in the higher Chakra realms. This quality of its essence creates a source and contact for universal love and harmony, as it acts as a channel for bringing Cosmic energies directly into the center of being. It is for this reason that Libyan Desert Glass was the jewel of Tutankhamen, designed to be worn over the heart in his breastplate, making it a highly sought out gemstone of the pharaohs and royalty.
As a tektite, it is very unusual in being nearly clear and a beautiful pale yellow to green and sometimes with touches of amber to greenish brown color. The vast majority of tektites (natural glass rocks up to a few centimeters in size, which scientists say are formed by the impact of large meteorites on Earth’s surface) are black, with the exception of the beautiful cosmic green Moldavite. This shining impact Libyan Desert Glass ranges from opaque to translucent. Sometimes golden in hue and even with white opaque areas, Libyan Desert Glass also varies in surface texture from having an extremely smooth quality to being covered with small to medium sized, circular indentations, reminiscent of the lunar surface.
Known to scientists since the 1930’s, it is believed, according to scientific knowledge, that this tektite emerged from a collision of a meteorite with Earth nearly 29 million years ago (about 28.5 to be more precise) and is found only in a remote area of the Great Sand Sea of Egypt near the Libyan border. Relatively abundant, they are found in massive deposits with some estimates saying there may be as much as 40,000 tons of it lying on the surface of the desert amongst a small area measuring approximately 130 x 52 km. To others, the origin of Libyan Desert Glass still remains a mystery, with some attributing their existence to an ancient nuclear explosion, others to involvement with extraterrestrial activities, some believing they are pieces of our moon, but modern science explains their creation as result of a meteor impact, although no crater of suitable size or other evidence in support of this has ever been found nearby. Regardless of their mysterious creation, it is for sure they are of extraterrestrial origin.
Libyan Desert Glass is an exceptionally pure form of primarily silica glass formed at extremely high temperatures, too high for normal volcanic activity. According to the impact theory of a meteor striking the Earth’s sand, which is also composed of primarily silica (silicon dioxide), it caused a fusion of sand with intense heat and pressure. Yet, there is research that supports this theory to be incorrect based on homogeneity studies, which in summary show that thin segments of thousands of studied tektites were found to be virtually free of structural inclusions, except for small bubbles. Impact glasses, such as obsidian, will always contain terrestrial inclusions due to the impact of Earth by heated material. Noted homogeneity also was found in individual tektites discovered side by side or fused together exhibiting significant differences.
This, along with typical meteoric material and the high iridium content (an indicator for extraterrestrial origin) being present indicate their classing as tektite, but it may also be that these tektites were formed by a glancing blow from some large extraterrestrial object. The truth may never be known, but there is much speculation and disagreement, you can imagine. Regardless, this ancient stone has been around for quite some time.
The Stone-Age people knew this tektite very well, discovering the glass in the Paleolithic period and lived in the area hundreds of thousands of years ago before it became desert. They had pragmatic ways of using the stone in tools, where it was used as substitute for flint stone in the form of sharp blades and graters. Yet, its the ancient Egyptians that found less practical uses for this “special” stone, as they considered it to be very precious and to hold powerful energy. By the time of the great Egyptian Pharaohs, the area was only accessible by hardy nomads who must have traded regularly with those living in the Nile valley. Therefore, due to its rarity and esoteric value, it became part of religious objects such as the scarab-carved amulet of Tutankhamen, as the centerpiece of his pectoral breastplate. For it to have been carved in the form of a scarab, which is the symbol of the Sun-god Ra, would seem to indicate that the ancient Egyptians were aware of its powerful cosmic connections that this stone draws in.
Today, Libyan Desert Glass is not only a valued and pricey gem beauty for collectors, but its esoteric energies attributed to this “rock of the god” are vastly potent. Its high costs are attributed to the cost of retrieving it on remote expedition from the uninhabitable desert. Yet, its amazing qualities, priced similarly to Moldavite, are well worth the cost to at least own one in your collection. Only recently have those working with stones and crystals started to realize and understand the huge potential that these unique tektites offer.
Some of the metaphysical properties include a long and prosperous life, balancing of male and female polarities, stimulating growth and karmic completion, strengthening the auric field, facilitating communication between the third dimension and the origin of the gem, tool for meditating and connecting with other realms and advanced consciousness, stimulating increased cosmic flow, which can result in acceleration of heart rate, spacey feeling and out-of-body experiences, strengthening and energizing the heart and chest areas and said to bring the holder great luck by ancient cultural belief. It is also a stone of teaching and resonates strongly with the energy of the Hermit card of the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck; the wise teacher who looks within for answers of the universe and receives in silence.
The way that they create inter-dimensional connections between many realms, lends energy to seeing them as “bridge builders” helping to integrate and harmonize all of existence through heart-blending at a universal, collective consciousness level. This energy, amongst others, will become increasingly important and essential as we shift our consciousness and vibrations into that of the new Golden Age of being.
Crystals and stones are each magical and unique in their own right; possessing certain properties and energies that not only resonate with each of us personally, but also resonate during certain periods of our lives when we are in need of the supportive energy they provide. Moldavite is one such extraordinary stone and one of the most powerful, which just so happens to share the same hue and vibrancy associated with the Heart Chakra and new energies of the times.
Let’s look further into some of the uniqueness of this precious stone. Moldavite is a tektite-a mysterious group of glassy objects, that is the product of a meteor collision with Earth nearly 15 million years ago (14.8 to be exact). It is believed to have fallen from the sky only once, over what is now called the Moldau River Valley in Czechoslovakia. Found only in the Czech Republic, these green gems are among the rarest minerals on Earth-perhaps rarer than diamonds, rubies, and emeralds (hence being a bit pricey). Prized by humans for thousands of years, they are still given as gifts from royalty to royalty. Stories of legend associate Moldavite with the legendary Stone of the Holy Grail, an “emerald” said to have fallen from the sky, and a talisman for the healing of the Earth and having the power to accelerate one’s inner growth and spiritual evolution. Even those not usually sensitive to the energies of stones, often feel the energy of Moldavite because it’s undeniably powerful.
Wearing, or simply holding, a piece of Moldavite can produce many interesting and instantaneous reactions and experiences including that of heat flashes and emanating heat in general, that can not only be felt by the wearer, but those around, energy jolts, and vibrations throughout the day. It’s not a power to play with though, as since it’s vibration is so high, one not used to such exposure can find themselves feeling quite drained, as your vibrational energy quickens to catch up to match it.
Moldavite is a definite and powerful Chakra opener and activator, particularly resonating with the Heart, 3rd Eye, and Crown Chakras. Although its energy tends to first move to wherever it is most needed in the physical and etheric bodies, it will settle and center in the heart.
Moldavite is a great stone to work with on a personal and collective level in your healing work, practices, and meditations. Its transformative qualities, begins a process of energetic resonance throughout one’s entire being, thus raising the vibration. There are many benefits of this stone, and exposure to it, including, activating the dream state when worn while sleeping, helping one to acclimate to the Earth plane environment if feeling not part of this world (especially in the case of Star Children), helps foster a deeper level of compassion and understanding for the human realities of the physical plane, aids in expansion of consciousness and rapid transformation in one’s life-aiding the release of those things that do not serve one’s highest path, visionary experiences, increased clarity, vibrational raising of both yourself and the Earth, energy cleansing, strengthens, aids in self discovery and enlightenment, cosmic and crystal consciousness, expansion, and even contact with interdimensional energies, and the list goes on…
It is considered the only known gemstone of “extraterrestrial” origin (not of this Earth) and is associated with the Star card of the Tarot. But most importantly, it is a direct link to the Heart Chakra. While wearing Moldavite one actively engages with the heart and it helps to return that beautiful pink glow to your aura that is associated with unconditional love. Definitely a stone that helps us to get in touch with that lovely pink (or green) resonance of the heart. Wow! What a little powerhouse of multiplicity. No wonder it can at first sometimes intimidate those not aware of its energy. It’s fully packed with releasing and relinquishing energy that one surely needs to be ready for. Although, by inviting one such lovely piece into your life, is already mirroring that on some level you’ve chosen to be ready. It is definitely a celestial “stone of transformation.” Yet, not all stones are for everyone.
You will know if Moldavite is for you either in resonating with what you are reading here, or on instant contact with one. Isn’t it wonderful that like with all things, there’s a multitude of choices out there for everyone to find what truly resonates with them? But if you find yourself ready for one of these beauties, enjoy! You will find a lasting friend you’ll want to take along for the journey.
It might be helpful to mentally prepare, when deciding to wear your Moldavite and you can also help to ground yourself as well by pairing it with other stones such as black tourmaline, smoky quartz, hematite, tiger eye, or whatever stone resonates grounding effects for you. Moldavite harmonizes well with such stones as quartz, amethyst, rose quartz, citrine, tanzanite, larimar, sugililte, and dozens more. It tends to supercharge the energies of whatever stones you pair it with. Or you can go cold turkey, wearing it alone as you say, “Bring it on!”
The stone can be purchased both in its natural beauty as a raw, amorphous stone, or as a cut and polished stone. Faceted Moldavites, some say, can have an intensified energy that is created by the cutting process. And if cut into geometric shapes it can also act as a type of laser. But again, it all depends on you and your intentions and the way the energy of the stone blends with your own. Whatever shape and type resonates with you, is the perfect choice always and will produce exactly the results you are looking for and needing. Like with anything, follow your intuition and heart. Higher prices don’t denote personal fulfillment.
