The benefits of semi-precious stones and crystals is not a field in which I have expertise; but I know a lady that has. 

In my blog post ‘Life’s a party. Dress like it’ I had the opportunity to chat with the lovely Kirstie from AstroRocksUK… https://rations2rocknroll.wordpress.com/2017/08/16/lifes-a-party-dress-like-it/ …in which I asked Kirstie about her enthusiasm for crystals.

Kirstie @AstroRocksUK “I work with and sell crystals for healing and the home. Crystals have been in my life since I was a child in some form or other as semi-precious stone and finding curious rocks on various beaches, until about 20 years ago when a friend introduced me them to help me with my symptoms. (I have M.E). Being of a scientific mind I was blown away by the sensations I could feel from these pretty rocks such as amethyst, rose quartz, citrine and jasper and something deep inside was triggered. My intuition. I then trained in Crystal Healing to deepen my understanding in 2003 whilst still in my career as an HR professional, teaching and sharing my love for crystals along the way. Now, I divide my time between Sparkle O’Hara and my own business, Astro-Rocks where I sell and teach others about crystals, and provide Astrology readings. I am also planning on writing a book about my experience with crystals and how crystal can support our personal growth and our evolution.”

Ella Vine, whose website may be found at https://ellavine.co.uk/collections/all , says “…that it is good to raise awareness…and bras look so pretty with the stones on! Why hide such beautiful precious little things in the bra? It also avoids the fuss of taking the bra off…and a handful of stones rolling out.”

Kirstie from AstroRocksUK may be found at https://crystallisingdream.wordpress.com/ , advises “I am always recommending to ladies to wear crystals in bras.”
