The vibration of this stone is so powerful when it comes to relationships that it is sometimes necessary to add some Amethyst energy to the mix to slow things down a little.
Moonstone and Larimar are also good for manifesting more love into your life. Larimar will help you to find your soulmate, although this does not always mean that you will become lovers. Your soulmate may be the person from whom you learn the most important life lessons.

Gemstone for protection
Crystals have been used by humans for thousands of years to offer protection from dangers, threats, curses, and all manner of misfortune. Aquamarine is prized by sailors as a protective talisman against storms at sea, while Tiger’s Eye can be used to shield you from magical influences and ill wishes.
On a more practical level, Clear Quartz and Amethyst are excellent crystals to have nearby when you are working on computers or under an artificial light. They absorb the pollution of electromagnetic smog and render the atmosphere clear and clean.
