Obsessed: Rocks and Minerals

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been obsessed over geodes, crystals, rocks, and minerals.  My huge rock specimen collection was neatly labeled with its scientific name, and I even had a grow-your-own-crystal kit!  Now that raw minerals and semi-precious stones are a huge statement piece trend, I’m so glad I can proudly confess my geeky obsession with all of you here.

Not only are these stones beautiful, but many people believe that these stones respond to the energy in our bodies and can help heal, balance, and cleanse humans emotionally and physically .
