Carnelian

Carnelian has been one of my favorite crystals for a few years now and it's supposed to boost your creativity, individuality and courage.

It's simply motivating the mindset.

Desert rose

This crystal is formed by water, wind and sand. It is the stone of the mind, and is used to quit worries and still the mind from distraction. The desert rose looks like it is consisting of hundreds of sand colored rose petals. I currantly have it on my night stand to give me a peaceful night and morning.

Amethyst

Amethyst is a calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual and physical planes to promote calm, balance and contentment. It is used to eliminate impatience and to get rid of addictions.
