The Magic of Tumbles

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. 

Meaning of Tumbles

Crystals have been revered for their beauty and metaphysical properties for centuries. One popular form of crystal that has gained SO much attention in the spiritual and wellness world are crystal tumbles. These small, polished pocket-sized sweeties are not only aesthetically pleasing but they also pack a powerful punch! Crystal tumbles are small, usually rounded stones that have been polished to create a smooth surface. They come in almost every stone you could possibly think of!

Not to quote Shakespeare, but this exact thought comes to mind when I look at these beauties!

"Though she be but little, she is fierce!"

The shape of a crystal tumbled stone plays a significant role in its energy and benefits. Here are some benefits of the shape of a crystal tumbled stone:

Tumbled stones have a smooth surface due to the tumbling process, which makes them comfortable to hold and carry in your pocket or purse. The smoothness also allows for easy placement on the body during healing practices.

Even Energy Distribution: 
The rounded shape of tumbled stones promotes the even distribution of energy, ensuring that the crystal's properties are dispersed harmoniously. This can create a balanced and gentle energy flow when using the stone for healing or meditation.

Tumbled stones are versatile and can be easily incorporated into various practices such as crystal grids, jewelry making, or carrying them as pocket or bra stones. Their shape makes them adaptable for different uses and settings.

The small size of tumbled stones makes them convenient to carry with you wherever you go. You can keep them in your pocket, purse, or even place them in your bra on the heart side or on your desk or nightstand for continuous access to their energy.

Enhanced Connection: The rounded shape of tumbled stones is believed to enhance the connection between the crystal and the user. It is thought to create a more intimate and personal bond, allowing for a deeper resonance with the stone's energy.

How we love to use them!

  1. Meditation: We love to hold a crystal tumble in our hands during meditations. You can either intentionally choose one for a specific purpose, or it is also fun to intuitively pick a tumble and see what comes to you during your meditation. 

  2. Carry Them: Keep a crystal tumble in your pocket, purse or bra to benefit from its energy throughout the day. Again you can intentionally or intuitively choose one to have on you and bask in it's energy all day long!

  3. In Your Space: Decorate your home or workspace with crystal tumbles to bring harmony and balance the energy of the space. To add a little extra protection to your space, place obsidian and selenite tumbles by the entrance to your home!

  4. Create Crystal Grids: You can create some beautiful, powerful crystal grids using tumbles! Intentionally arrange those beauties in a pattern that feels like magic to you, to amplify their collective energy.

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 own unique path.
