Palm Stone Crystal (Pink Petrified Wood Fossil)
Stone: Petrified Wood
Size: 5cm diameter
Petrified wood is a fossil. It forms when plant material is buried by sediment and protected from decay due to oxygen and organisms. Then, groundwater rich in dissolved solids flows through the sediment, replacing the original plant material with silica, calcite, pyrite and other minerals. Over a period of a few million years, those minerals crystalize, and the end result is a rock/stone, which when cut and polished is quite beautiful.
It’s easy to see why everyone is currently crushing on crystals. Beyond being pretty to look at, they’re also said to help with better sleep, channeling chill vibes, and attracting abundance, among just a few healing properties.
Meditate while holding your palm stone to connect with its metaphysical powers, or simply toss one in your pocket or handbag (or tuck one into your bra!) to help ground you throughout the day.
HOW TO ENJOY YOUR PALM STONE CRYSTALS
1. Program your crystal with an intention
The first things to do with a crystal is to program it with an intention. The crystal wants to work for you, but you have to tell it what to do. It will then serve as a daily reminder of that goal. To program it, hold the crystal in your hands, close your eyes, and take three deep breaths. Then aloud or in your head, say “I ask that the highest vibration of love and light connect with my highest self to clear all unwanted energy and any previous programming. I command this crystal to hold the intention of [insert your intention here]. End by saying thank you three times to emphasize that what you’re asking for already exists in the universe.
2. Wear your crystals
The more you touch your precious stones, the more you can tap into their energy, so wearing them is a smart strategy. If all else fails, tucking one into your bra will always do the trick.
3. Toss them into your handbag (or schoolbag) or pocket
If wearing crystals isn’t your thing, or maybe you just want to start small on your gemstone journey, put one in your pocket or bag. Use it as a touchstone throughout the day to help ground you.
4. Meditate with them
To up your dose of spiritual energy, meditate while holding your crystals to connect with their metaphysical powers. You are not praying to the crystals, you’re holding them as a source for you to get connected within yourself.
5. Put them in your bath
Make your bath time feel über fancy by throwing some gems in the water.
6. Sprinkle them throughout your space
Cleansing the energy of your home is as easy as sprinkling a few stones throughout your space. Not only do they elevate the vibe, but they make for beautiful decor in every room, too. Place a few crystals on your desk to give you good vibes while you work, place some on top of a book on your bedside table or, go all out and create an altar with all your crystals, tarot cards, and Palo Santo.
7. Try Crystal "Accupuncture"
End your evening beauty ritual by placing one or two palm stones on your face or body. You can put the stones wherever you feel tension to help further release that built up energy (or wrinkles/puffiness).
Crystals and gemstones work best when they are cleared and cleansed, so cleanse and activate them often! Here are some recommended ways to cleanse your crystals:
1. Rinse your crystals gently with water (you can add some sea salt to it as well). Place your crystals outside under the sun or full moon for at least 4 hours.
2. Steadily hold your crystals in the smoke of a burning Sage stick or Palo Santo stick until they are fully immersed.
3. Place your crystals in the soil or branches of a healthy indoor plant for 24 hours.
