Away with the Fairies

Just like ourselves, crystals naturally come in all different shapes, sizes and colours, but can also be carved into different symbolic forms. The art of crystal carving is an ancient one that dates back to civilisations like the Mayans, Romans, Chinese and the Egyptians.

Just as each crystal has it's own unique properties, the shape or form of the crystal can also enhance it's inherent properties or even add new ones to the stone, which can enable us to utilise it in more or different ways. 

As a child my mum would always say:

"Oh, she's away with the fairies!"

And it was the truth!
I was away with the fairies and honestly, it's the best place to be!

These enchanting creatures have captured the imaginations of people for centuries. Frolicking through the meadows and hiding in the trees, these magical beauties are known for their mischievous energy and they're deep-rooted connection to
mother nature. These beings are known to many cultures all around the world and each have their own unique interpretation of them. In Irish folklore, fairies are known as "the Good People" or "the Sidhe" and are believed to have their own hidden realm called
"Tír na nÓg."

To me personally, the fairy symbolises pure magic, wonder & whimsy. They are the guardians of nature and all her creatures. They embody femininity, exuding grace, intuition, and resilience. Lastly, fairies are a guiding light, shining through the darkness and helping you find your path always.

(Just to add to all this fairy magic, if you ever want to feel like a real-life fairy I recommend listening to anything Hozier or Florence + The Machine. I'm convinced these artists are fairies playing as humans!)

How we love to use them!

  1. Magic: Carved crystal fairies embody the mystical and whimsical aspects of life, encouraging us to embrace wonder and imagination. They bring pure magic and whimsy to whoever is lucky enough to catch one, and wherever you may have them in the home!

  2. Spiritual Connection: Fairies are apart of the spiritual realm and the unseen energies around us. Carved crystal fairies symbolise a connection to the spiritual world and serve as a reminder to nurture your spiritual growth and intuition. They can help you tap into your inner wisdom and connect with higher realms of consciousness.

  3. Nature: As fairies are deeply connected to and protective of nature, the carved crystal fairies inspire us to appreciate the beauty of nature and seek harmony with our surroundings.

  4. Feminine Energy and Empowerment: Fairies serve as magical reminders of the strength and power of the feminine spirit, encouraging us to embrace our own inner power and to always empower the beautiful women that we cross paths with.

  5. Healing and Transformation: Fairies are often seen as symbols of healing and transformation. Carved crystal fairies can carry the energy of healing and support, assisting you in your personal growth and transformational journey. They can help you release old patterns, embrace change, and invite positive energy into your life.

  6. Protection and Guidance: Fairies are seen as protectors and guides. Carved crystal fairies can offer a sense of protection and guidance, acting as spiritual allies on your journey. They can help you navigate challenges, provide comfort during difficult times, and offer insights and inspiration.

Each crystal has its own unique properties, so it's always a good idea to research the specific crystal you are working with or check out our Crystal Knowledge section to understand its individual energy and benefits, as well as the unique energy each shape brings. 

Remember, the most important thing is to connect with the crystal in a way that feels right for you. Trust your intuition and allow the crystal's energy to guide you on your magical journey.
