A Closer Look Into Our Magical Crystals

A Closer Look Into Our Magical Crystals

Here in Bonsai and Cacti we're fascinated by crystals! They're so mindblowingly unique and beautiful that it makes it impossible to ignore the wonders of energy, matter, and the combination of both.  Everything we are and see is composed of innumerable particles with a particular vibration and array.  Crystals are formed by certain minerals that bond in specific ways to create a structure, or an internal lattice.  Depending on its nature, a crystal can absorb, conserve, focus, and emit energy.  Making them a good tool for channeling, cleansing, and amplifying specific energies.

We like to use our crystals in a more playful way.  You'll usually see us wearing one of our Tactile Necklaces with some of our favorite gemstones in them or getting our hands busy with a Crystal Roller.  A customer favorite and certainly ours too, the Juju, is one of the most versatile of our toy catalogue, with the added feature that can also be worn as a bracelet.

In this post you'll find a brief description of the principal gemstones that we like to use in our workshop.  Our crystal toys and accessories are customizable so feel free to get in touch with us for a personalized piece made with the stones that resonate with you the most!

We want to emphasize that despite the properties attributed to each crystal, nothing is better than your own intuition and nothing is stronger than your own beliefs.  We encourage you to pay attention to your gut at the time of selecting your crystals and let that be your ultimate reference.
