New Vibes: Species By The Thousands
Species By The Thousands is one of those Gems of a boutique that I was not planning on visiting but somehow stumbled upon while roaming Brooklyn. It is a small shop with many crystals and semi precious stones to choose from along with soy based candles, accessories, and sage.
Right by the window there were a box of semi precious stones that I gravitated to and knew I had to add more to my collection at home. I was immediately drawn to
Opalite- a man made synthetic glass (the milky, iridescent looking stone) that is highly energetic and ideal for meditation. Opalite improves communication, removes energy blockages, and helps during transitions in life. It is said to bring inner peace and a sense of calm in any situation. "Opalite is for all- round healing...enhancing sexual experience...stabilizes mood swings and helps overcome fatigue...sooth frayed nerves and helps us with anxiety."
Rose Quartz- a stone of heart and a crystal of unconditional love (the soft pink looking stone). It is said to inspire the love of beauty in oneself, others, nature, and stimulates the imagination of art, music, and written words. "It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort. It speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, dissolving emotional wounds, fears, and resentments..."
In addition to these beautiful gems, I also purchased a soy based candle that has actual Citrine in it (smells very clean) and I also picked up a super simple choker with a Citrine pendant attached to it. You can Rhead all about Citrine on my previous blog post
