Malachite’s beautiful green color always lifts my spirit. Malachite in all its forms is known as a stone of transformation and the color green is associated with healing, growth and financial abundance. It is associated with the heart chakra and fire element.
Pink amethyst has the energy of both the pink and purple rays of the quartz family and is one of those crystals that just makes my heart sing.
It has a gentle, slow and soothing energy that resonates with the heart and crown chakras, opening and connecting heart healing with our highest selves.
It is associated with the element of air.
To paraphrase Shakespeare’s “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” , A Boji Stone by any other name would be a Boji Stone.
Let’s get out of the way the fact that I am completely perplexed when something from Mother Nature is trademarked. Boji Stones are the trademarked and the most well known name for these stones that are found in Kansas. They are also known as Kansas Pop Rocks, Pop Rocks, Moqui Marble (though I think Moqui Stones actually differ slightly), or Shaman Stones. The trademarked stones marketed and sold as Boji Stones are sold with their own, “birth certificate” and cost considerably more. Now that , that is out of the way, I will refer to these stones in a general way as Pop Rocks.
Smudging is an ancient spiritual practice used for purifying and cleansing energies from a person, place or thing that is most often associated with the Native Americans. A combination of herbs, flowers and different types of sage are bundled together to form a smudge stick that is burned. The most common form of smudge is white sage.
