To preface: I’ve always considered myself more or less of a skeptic. You can’t deny the obvious effects that the orbit of the moon and the planets affects the earth and likely all life on it as well in some way or another. But at the same time I’ve always been of the mindset that at least 70% of all astrological ideology, psychics and spiritual healers were just very educated and intuitive scam artists, and the real deal was very few and far between. What I’m getting at is, I’ve always loved gemstones and astrology for the mystery and general aesthetic, but found a lot of it to be a little out there. I always had a very strong affinity for lava rocks, particularly andestite and obsidian. This weekend I attended a psychic fair where I felt inexplicably drawn to a necklace that I am currently wearing. It’s a locket shaped like the tree of life and within is a small piece of andestite. After reading this article out of shear curiosity I was reduced to tears. I still don’t think I’d call myself a highly spiritual person but I definitely believe in the healing properties of gems and such, and I can finally understand now why I’m so drawn to particular ones.

I love the article on love rocks. I have a raw obsidian in my livingroom. All the different lava rocks in this article interest me but I’m just a rock nut anyway. I wish I lived closer to a volcano site.
