2012 Was the Beginning, Not the End

So I have been traveling a lot this year. I’ve been to many places and plan to go to many more this year. I for one never thought 2012 was the end, sorry to all those who ran up large bills thinking they wouldn’t have to pay it back. But something has changed, in fact a lot has changed. But if you are like most, you didn’t even notice.

Sure, the world is acting like it is run by morons, fact of the matter is, it is being run by morons. But that’s an illusion of power. I’ll write about that some other time. What I do want to write about is the crystal aspect today. What I mean by that is that, we are not alone on this planet and the crystal world is a world that speaks to us, if we learn how to listen. In fact what it has been saying did change and we should take it more seriously.

I have over a thousand crystals in my house. I have some of the strongest vibration crystals we know of. Something I noticed after December 2012, was the change in tone these crystals took. It was less about helping in the way they had in the past. In the past, I was very good at spotting a crystal for a specific need. Crystals were always very helpful in aiding emotional issues for people. No matter how big of a crutch you needed, they were there for you. I helped many clients with finding the right crystal and it was a lot of fun.

Now the crystals are not so willing to help that way. They will help for sure, but the change in attitude is very much a reality. Now they don’t help so much like they did in the past. And I see what is happening with them. Instead of helping like in the past, they want us to own our own development more. Take ownership for our own lives.

Aries: Prehnite
There is a good chance that a prophetic experience will happen for you this month. It may be in a dream or when you least expect it. But what meaning this message has is something you need to follow up on. It will most certainly be a light bulb moment for you so you won’t mistake it for something else. But the message is great. I would tell you but that would take a lot of the fun out of it for you, but it’s a big one.

Taurus: Gold with Quartz
Over this month, your intuition will be strong, your soul is talking to you, give thanks to this. Often when people experience this, it can be overwhelming and then when the talking ends, they just go blah and forget all about it. Gold with Quartz or ritualized quartz can help you stay grounded and be able to absorb it all so you can use what you learn from all your intuitive conversations this month. Enjoy the ride!

Gemini: Pyrite
Pyrite, also known as fool’s gold, and what a great name for this stone. Because the message it brings is that you are emotionally unbalanced and the reason is because of something someone said that they are trying to tell is gold but in fact is not. The real trick is, you have to really look at this. The person who opens up to you and tells you from their heart, as much as that might hurt to hear, is not the person who is doing this. It is the one who belittles you and tells you they only do it for your own good. The solution is to regain your emotional balance again. Go within and find yourself, it’s not outside of you.

Cancer: Turquoise
All is not well. You know this and so do those around you. The issue is that you don’t express yourself properly. By that I mean, you say one thing but show quite another. You may ask for peace but when others give it to you, you get upset that nobody is talking to you. What you need to do is learn to express your true feelings, the outcome will not be as bad as you think it will be. Turquoise can help you in this situation to express what you really need to say, stop hiding your emotions, people want to be with the real you, not the mask you put up.

Leo: Kyanite
Pay attention to your dreams and intuition over the month. You are being guided to find a deeper spiritual meaning to your life. Kyanite is a great stone to help you unearth the path that you are being guided towards. This is your area, you know you are great at this stuff so just dive in and enjoy the journey.

Virgo: Labradorite
Labradorite is often considered a transformation stone. In your case, what it is trying to point out to you is that a certain situation that has been concerning you for a while is in fact rooted in fear. This will be a bit of a shock to you when you look at it but once you do, you will spring into action and make the changed needed to neutralize that fear. And once you have, you will be surprised at just how fast things start to change for you.

Libra: Carnelian
Carnelian is quite the work horse crystal. It is used in a lot of spells associated with money, creativity and vitality. But what it asks of you is to act without judgment. Too often we censor ourselves to fit in, which causes a self inflicted wound on the self. Carnelian can help you heal those wounds and help you find an outlet to get back to you being you again. Share yourself with Carnelian and let it reflect back to you who you are to be.

Scorpio: Petrified wood
This is a high vibration stone. It is wood that has been replaced with stone, contrary to popular believe the wood didn’t become stone, there is no wood left. Petrified wood is all about the steady growth of life. To go with the flow of things. To remember that the divine is with you and to work with those plans and not to go against it. If you can do this, you will be rewarded for your efforts. So you can either swim against the current and exhaust yourself, or go with the flow and enjoy the prizes.

Sagittarius: Tiger Eye
Calm communications and a calm mind are what is called for this month. Want to get ahead, then remain calm. Stress is what tightens the brain up, causes you to stop thinking and when you stop thinking, you can’t come up with anything good to say. So remain calm and let the words just flow.

Capricorn: Amber (Repeat)
Something big is going to happen this month. It will not seem to be a good event at first. It will certainly feel negative. Amber asks you to stay calm, because by staying calm, you will find hidden agendas, plans within plans and this knowledge will help you set yourself free from a situation that has been holding you back. If you remain level headed in all this, you will come out feeling renewed and see this as a good turning point.

Aquarius: Beryl
A good month ahead. Problems will go away and your stress levels will reduce as a result. Just be sure to let go of the past otherwise it will make things very difficult for you to relax.

Pisces: Sodalite
Sometimes in the modern world, it is very easy to stop feeling. It is very easy to be shallow where your emotional depth is shallower than a puddle on the sidewalk. This happens when we lose sight of our selves. Sodalite is all about us coming back, finding the inner calm and being relaxed with who we are again. Sodalite is asking you to relax, go within and keep the dreams alive, as it will help you get them.

Aries: Lapis Lazuli
Lapis is often called a royal stone. It is a stone of leadership and power, for those who use it, are eternally protected. But most who do use it fail to really understand the power of Lapis. To do so, you need to get out of that little box you live in, to know that you are eternally protected and safe as long as Lapis is on your side. Dare to be yourself and you will experience a new level of life, but you have to get out of the box first.

Taurus: Crocoite
A new start is just around the corner. Good things, happy things, things that make you feel good about the direction your life is going. But, like most things, there is a catch. What on the surface may look like a sure thing, may not be. Always look for the inner beauty to find that new direction that is coming your way.

Gemini: Selenite
A fun fact about Selenite is that it is one of the few crystals out there that you don’t have to clean. It can take care of itself, most crystals need cleaning to function properly, not Selenite. But it has a weakness that most other crystals do not have, it can’t get wet. When you start to learn about Selenite, you realize that this is a very powerful yet curious crystal. It’s ability to create calm and tranquility is amazing but it’s real power is taking time to go within and realize oneness. It is a very spiritual stone and like many on the spiritual path, it is strong and seems independent but still has a weakness to it. Bond with Selenite and the conversations you have may help you understand your place in life more.

Cancer: Molybdenite
I hate to be the one to give you bad news, but I am afraid I must. The life you live is a complete illusion. It was created by your own perceptions which was corrupted by society. Uncorrupted, your life exists in perfect balance, at least it should be. But you allowed the influence of others to change your beliefs and cause you to believe that you are not loved and that life must be hard. No, you are loved, you are eternally blessed and you are worthy. When you go back to this natural state, you will be amazed at how life changes for the better.

Leo: Tiger Iron
These past few years has been a time when people seek the spiritual and believe that the physical and emotional are somehow bad or limiting. That’s not true. In fact you can’t manifest if you are not well rooted in the physical. WIthout that anchor, you just don’t have enough energy to create. You may become this glowing spiritual being that has no power to make what they want. So Tiger Iron is here to help you get grounded again and to remind you, you are a spiritual being in a physical body for a reason.

Virgo: Rhodonite
Rhodonite is a love stone, an external love stone of generosity. It is great for helping you use your talents in an external way. While many love stones focus on the inner world of emotions, rhodonite is all about taking those inner gifts and sharing them. Not just in an intimate relationship but with anyone or anything you with to show emotional expression to. So get out there and share those inner gifts with the world.

Libra: Fluorite (Green Purple)
Clear the mental fog and gain better insight into what lies ahead. Fluorite is one of those crystal powerhouses that can do a lot for you. But what it asks is to be focused and grounded. Then it is a lot easier to create the very things you want.

Scorpio: Chrsoprase
This is a time of new ideas. You have a lot on your mind and the outlet to get them out is important. But what part of your mind should you pay attention to? The most creative ideas are going to come at you from the subconscious. So expect them to come when you least expect it and be ready for them with pen and pad or tablet. If you really want to rev up your creative juices, get out into nature. A connection to nature, especially wooded areas are just what Chrysoprase calls for to push forth those great ideas.

Sagittarius: Aquamarine
We all have problems in life, what Aquamarine asks of you is to solve your problems with compassion, patience and understanding. The goal here is to help your level of maturity grow on the emotional side of things. Aquamarine helps you use your emotions as a sign of strength if you allow it.

Capricorn: Prehnite
There is a good chance that a prophetic experience will happen for you this month. It may be in a dream or when you least expect it. But what meaning this message has is something you need to follow up on. It will most certainly be a light bulb moment for you so you won’t mistake it for something else. But the message is great. I would tell you but that would take a lot of the fun out of it for you, but it’s a big one.

Aquarius: Snowflake Obsidian
Life sometimes throws us lemons, and snowflake obsidian says, make lemonade and sell it! This is a great stone to have around when you are faced with tough times and need some ideas to get out of a situation. With snowflake obsidian, you will have many ideas coming your way, just what you need to get yourself to the next goal you have set for yourself.

Pisces: Beryl
A good month ahead. Problems will go away and your stress levels will reduce as a result. Just be sure to let go of the past otherwise it will make things very difficult for you to relax.

Aries: Amethyst
When one first journeys down the spiritual path with crystals, amethyst is by far that first stone people tend to take that journey with. Part of that journey is to look into your darker self, that side of you that you don’t often like to admit is there. We all like to play a certain role in life and that means hiding certain aspects of our personality. Amethyst is asking you to stop hiding from yourself, that if you really want to grow at anything, you have to accept the whole that is you.

Taurus: Thunder Eggs
Keep an open mind, this good be a good month for travel and adventures in far off places. These adventures will lead to a combining of two elements; spiritual and physical or personal and business. In either case, Thunder Eggs are saying, go ahead and take the adventure, they will make sure you are safe on that trip.

Gemini: Rose Quartz
When people think of love, rose quartz is usually the stone they have in mind. It is all about love, a gentle love for anything really. Rose quartz has so many great qualities to share, but the catch is, it is a soft stone with soft energies. You need to relax and relate to enjoy the energies. When you do, you will no longer have to worry about giving and receiving, you will be one with the one you love to an extent that such things are meaningless.

Cancer: Rhodonite
Rhodonite is a love stone, an external love stone of generosity. It is great for helping you use your talents in an external way. While many love stones focus on the inner world of emotions, rhodonite is all about taking those inner gifts and sharing them. Not just in an intimate relationship but with anyone or anything you with to show emotional expression to. So get out there and share those inner gifts with the world.

Leo: Aquamarine
We all have problems in life, what Aquamarine asks of you is to solve your problems with compassion, patience and understanding. The goal here is to help your level of maturity grow on the emotional side of things. Aquamarine helps you use your emotions as a sign of strength if you allow it.

Virgo: Sodalite

This happens when we lose sight of our selves. Sodalite is all about us coming back, finding the inner calm and being relaxed with who we are again. Sodalite is asking you to relax, go within and keep the dreams alive, as it will help you get them.

Libra: Citrine
Want more money? Then this month is your chance. But to get it you have to let go of any attachments to negative feelings about money or wealth. So that sounds easy but it’s not if you happen to be under the financial gun. So try your best to let go for it is in your best interest to do so.

Scorpio: Prehnite
There is a good chance that a prophetic experience will happen for you this month. It may be in a dream or when you least expect it. But what meaning this message has is something you need to follow up on. It will most certainly be a light bulb moment for you so you won’t mistake it for something else. But the message is great. I would tell you but that would take a lot of the fun out of it for you, but it’s a big one.

Sagittarius: Ruby
Ruby is a complex stone, mainly due to the fact that rubies come in all kinds of stones that mean very different things. In this case, we are talking about love. The kind of love that you may have felt was lost or at least was not as bright as it once was. Well that’s about to change as Ruby says, go for that passion and rekindle that love. You will see how quickly the bad memories fade and you remember the good times again. But as always, there is a catch… If YOU don’t act, none of this will matter. It is about you expressing your feelings, only then will you get what you want.

Capricorn: Clear Quartz
Clear quartz has a reputation of being a very programmable crystal. With that in mind, this is a year for setting goals. Be realistic with your goals, so that you can easily attain them. Get a small clear quartz and program it with your goals and sit back and enjoy the benefits of seeing those goals become reality.

Aquarius: Kyanite
Pay attention to your dreams and intuition over the month. You are being guided to find a deeper spiritual meaning to your life. Kyanite is a great stone to help you unearth the path that you are being guided towards. This is your area, you know you are great at this stuff so just dive in and enjoy the journey.

Pisces: Gold
Your personality development needs to go within. Beyond the surface where things like money, status and ego exist. For a lot of you this will require contemplation and meditation. Do not fall into the trap of thinking money is evil, it is neutral in it’s own right, we are the ones that give it meaning. You need to go even beyond that level to a deeper level to find true personal meaning as to what that means to you, enjoy the journey to find out.

An Unusual Lemurian

A few months ago I bought a lemurian seed quartz. It was one of those things that I just felt drawn to so I bought it. It just sat around my house for a while until I had a conversation with a geologist friend of mine and was describing to her what it looked like. She was curious so I brought it to her shop. It turns out I have another unusual lemurian.

When I bought this crystal, it was an impulse buy. I didn’t think about it and when I got it home, I knew it was usual. I wasn’t sure it was a lemurian because I have never seen one like this before. It is nearly 9 inches and is double terminated with fine black like hairs at the tips. I brought it to my friend and it just so happened she had another rock hound over at the time. They both confirmed it is a lemurian and they both were surprised by it.

Double terminated lemurians are not the norm but not unusual either, but one of this size is not that common. The black like hairs turned about to be black tourmaline and obsidian. There is also one side that looks like the crystal grew over something. So they said it was certainly a very old crystal to have had enough time to do that growing.

Now I paid about $120 for it and they offered to add another zero to it on the spot if I would sell it. I said no. What does the crystal mean is now a big curiosity to me and why did it land in my lap? An unusual lemurian that is far my complex than I am explaining is something I always find interesting.

You may become this glowing spiritual being that has no power to make what they want. So Tiger Iron is here to help you get grounded again and to remind you, you are a spiritual being in a physical body for a reason.

Taurus: Malachite
Malachite is often considered a good fortune stone. That luck will come your way soon. Now if everything is great in life then yes, that luck is going to come. But if you happen to live in the real world, with the rest of us, then you probably suffer from regret and guilt. This is due to your behaving in a way you wish you hadn’t in the past. It is a failure to see the positive in your choices and the fact you do have choices. If you want to see the good fortune of malachite shine on you, start seeing and feeling the positive.

Gemini: Ruby
Ruby is a complex stone, mainly due to the fact that rubies come in all kinds of stones that mean very different things. In this case, we are talking about love. The kind of love that you may have felt was lost or at least was not as bright as it once was. Well that’s about to change as Ruby says, go for that passion and rekindle that love.

It is about you expressing your feelings, only then will you get what you want.

Cancer: Azurite
Azurite is a mental stone, many people meditate with it on their third eye. What Azurite is asking of you right now it to give it a task, to help you reach your goals. With Azurite as your partner, it is best to focus on what you want as if you have it already. Even if you think you are being rejected, don’t give it, because often what you will find is that Azurite has already mapped out a better outcome for you, you just have to trust it.

Leo: Amazonite
Life has a way of causing an imbalance in our system. If not treated, this can drain us of a lot of our vitality. You are in a position where you may have such experiences this month. Amazonite asks you to seek out that balance so you can get back to normal again. Find time to relax and recharge, that’s what will ensure a smooth month for you.

Virgo: Pyrite
Pyrite, also known as fool’s gold, and what a great name for this stone. Because the message it brings is that you are emotionally unbalanced and the reason is because of something someone said that they are trying to tell is gold but in fact is not. The real trick is, you have to really look at this. The person who opens up to you and tells you from their heart, as much as that might hurt to hear, is not the person who is doing this.

Sagittarius: Turquoise
All is not well. You know this and so do those around you. The issue is that you don’t express yourself properly. By that I mean, you say one thing but show quite another. You may ask for peace but when others give it to you, you get upset that nobody is talking to you. What you need to do is learn to express your true feelings, the outcome will not be as bad as you think it will be. Turquoise can help you in this situation to express what you really need to say, stop hiding your emotions, people want to be with the real you, not the mask you put up.

Capricorn: Tiger’s Eye
Calm communications and a calm mind are what is called for this month. Want to get ahead, then remain calm. Stress is what tightens the brain up, causes you to stop thinking and when you stop thinking, you can’t come up with anything good to say. So remain calm and let the words just flow.

Amethyst is asking you to stop hiding from yourself, that if you really want to grow at anything, you have to accept the whole that is you.

Pisces: Wulfenite
This is a very intuitive guiding stone. By that I mean, the message it brings forth is to follow your gut. All too often we fall into the trap of listening to so called experts or authority figures on what is best for us. Wulfenite is asking you to trust your own soul’s judgment for what is best for you. Your job to listen to that judgment. It is not the loudest voice out there but it is the best voice for you to be listening to.

Aries: Crocoite
A new start is just around the corner. Good things, happy things, things that make you feel good about the direction your life is going. But, like most things, there is a catch. What on the surface may look like a sure thing, may not be. Always look for the inner beauty to find that new direction that is coming your way.

Taurus: Red Jasper
Odds are, you will feel the need to help someone this month. It is in your best interest to act upon these feelings. Because it is not so much them that you are helping but yourself. This person will have issues that relate to past hurts for you. It is not important for you to go back and relive those past hurts, but to just heal them. The act of helping another will help you heal your own hurts.

Gemini: White Calcite
White with a bit of pink Calcite, is a bit of an interesting stone. It blends the two stones properties (white and pink) to give you an almost magical sense of achievement. This kind of Calcite is best for those who want to gain knowledge and use that knowledge. When you do this, you will find other will come to your aid and help you in whatever venture you put forth. It is a good time to be you, if you take the opportunities in front of you.

Cancer: Tiger Iron
These past few years has been a time when people seek the spiritual and believe that the physical and emotional are somehow bad or limiting. That’s not true. In fact you can’t manifest if you are not well rooted in the physical. WIthout that anchor, you just don’t have enough energy to create.

We all like to play a certain role in life and that means hiding certain aspects of our personality. Amethyst is asking you to stop hiding from yourself, that if you really want to grow at anything, you have to accept the whole that is you.

Scorpio: Moonstone
Moonstone is considered the most feminine of stones, many women use it to ask for favors. Men can use it too. Moonstone is tied to the ebb and flow of the moon. After the full moon, expect a time of expansion in your life. But don’t ignore your emotions, moonstone is very much tied to emotions and the role emotions play in your life, so when the good times come, express your happiness, don’t keep it within.

Sagittarius: Rutilated Quartz
We have all been hurt. For you, a bit of good fortune comes your way. Subconsciously, you will be receiving loving vibrations and loving thoughts from someone connected to your past. The past hurts will begin to truly heal now. The best part is, all you have to do is accept it. If you do, you will be better off for it.

Capricorn: Rhodochrosite
Relationships, that’s what Rhodochrosite is about. When I do a relationship reading for someone who has been wounded in love, this is a stone I recommend always. It’s powerful! It is such an understanding and loving stone and it loves to help people get back to feeling whole again. It’s most important message is self love, for without that, no one else can love you. Allow Rhodochrosite to help you find joy this month.

Aquarius: Gold with Quartz
Over this month, your intuition will be strong, your soul is talking to you, give thanks to this. Often when people experience this, it can be overwhelming and then when the talking ends, they just go blah and forget all about it. Gold with Quartz or ritualized quartz can help you stay grounded and be able to absorb it all so you can use what you learn from all your intuitive conversations this month. Enjoy the ride!

It is a very spiritual stone and like many on the spiritual path, it is strong and seems independent but still has a weakness to it. Bond with Selenite and the conversations you have may help you understand your place in life more.

When people think of love, rose quartz is usually the stone they have in mind. It is all about love, a gentle love for anything really. Rose quartz has so many great qualities to share, but the catch is, it is a soft stone with soft energies. You need to relax and relate to enjoy the energies. When you do, you will no longer have to worry about giving and receiving, you will be one with the one you love to an extent that such things are meaningless.

Gemini: Amazonite
Amazonite stimulates the heart and throat chakras. It speaks about your personal truth needing to be expressed but it also points out that something is not right and is blocking that. You are not balanced right now and you need to seek balance and the ability to express yourself in a better way. So how do you do that, simple, check out for a while and recharge and balance yourself, go to a weekend spa or retreat and let your batteries recharge.

Cancer: Malachite
Malachite is often considered a good fortune stone. That luck will come your way soon. Now if everything is great in life then yes, that luck is going to come. But if you happen to live in the real world, with the rest of us, then you probably suffer from regret and guilt. This is due to your behaving in a way you wish you hadn’t in the past. It is a failure to see the positive in your choices and the fact you do have choices. If you want to see the good fortune of malachite shine on you, start seeing and feeling the positive.

Leo: Petrified Wood
This is a high vibration stone. It is wood that has been replaced with stone, contrary to popular believe the wood didn’t become stone, there is no wood left. Petrified wood is all about the steady growth of life. To go with the flow of things. To remember that the divine is with you and to work with those plans and not to go against it. If you can do this, you will be rewarded for your efforts. So you can either swim against the current and exhaust yourself, or go with the flow and enjoy the prizes.

Virgo: Red Jasper
Odds are, you will feel the need to help someone this month. It is in your best interest to act upon these feelings. Because it is not so much them that you are helping but yourself. This person will have issues that relate to past hurts for you. It is not important for you to go back and relive those past hurts, but to just heal them. The act of helping another will help you heal your own hurts.

Libra: Rhodochrosite
Relationships, that’s what Rhodochrosite is about. When I do a relationship reading for someone who has been wounded in love, this is a stone I recommend always. It’s powerful! It is such an understanding and loving stone and it loves to help people get back to feeling whole again. It’s most important message is self love, for without that, no one else can love you. Allow Rhodochrosite to help you find joy this month.

Scorpio: Amber
Something big is going to happen this month. It will not seem to be a good event at first. It will certainly feel negative. Amber asks you to stay calm, because by staying calm, you will find hidden agendas, plans within plans and this knowledge will help you set yourself free from a situation that has been holding you back. If you remain level headed in all this, you will come out feeling renewed and see this as a good turning point.

Sagittarius: Turquoise
All is not well. You know this and so do those around you. The issue is that you don’t express yourself properly. By that I mean, you say one thing but show quite another. You may ask for peace but when others give it to you, you get upset that nobody is talking to you. What you need to do is learn to express your true feelings, the outcome will not be as bad as you think it will be. Turquoise can help you in this situation to express what you really need to say, stop hiding your emotions, people want to be with the real you, not the mask you put up.

Capricorn: Azurite
Azurite is a mental stone, many people meditate with it on their third eye. What Azurite is asking of you right now it to give it a task, to help you reach your goals. With Azurite as your partner, it is best to focus on what you want as if you have it already. Even if you think you are being rejected, don’t give it, because often what you will find is that Azurite has already mapped out a better outcome for you, you just have to trust it.

Aquarius: Carnelian
Carnelian is quite the work horse crystal. It is used in a lot of spells associated with money, creativity and vitality. But what it asks of you is to act without judgment. Too often we censor ourselves to fit in, which causes a self inflicted wound on the self. Carnelian can help you heal those wounds and help you find an outlet to get back to you being you again. Share yourself with Carnelian and let it reflect back to you who you are to be.

Pisces: Labradorite
Labradorite is often considered a transformation stone. In your case, what it is trying to point out to you is that a certain situation that has been concerning you for a while is in fact rooted in fear. This will be a bit of a shock to you when you look at it but once you do, you will spring into action and make the changed needed to neutralize that fear. And once you have, you will be surprised at just how fast things start to change for you.

It’s a Sell Year

I spent my morning out doing the rounds at the various shops who are back from Tucson. If you are not familiar with the Tucson show, it is the largest crystal show in the US. It is held every year around January and February. Shop owners are now back and my suspicions have proven valid.

If you track the pricing of crystals, you would have noticed that many of them have gone up in price over the last 4 years. Part of this is due to plain old economics, the price of shipping has gone up so the cost to buy at the consumer level is going to go up as well. But some crystals have gone up in price at an alarming rate. Take trigonic quartz, you could guy a 4 inch piece for under $100 just 5 years ago. I’ve seen those same pieces going for $15,000 to $30,000 now. And the answer is simple.

Because of the Mayan calendar ending, all kinds of stories have surfaced about what we can expect. And there is no shortage of crystal related stories. Many of which are centered around ascension or something along those lines. As a result, those stones that have been labeled as good stones to have for December, have gone up in price big time. If you just want your average tumbled tiger eye, that price is still fairly steady, with some adjustment for economics. But if you want something like trigonic or lemurian, yeah, you will be paying a premium for it.

If you have a stockpile you want to sell, this is a great year, there are plenty of eager buyers. I have had a few tell me to name my price to part with my master matrix Lemurians. There isn’t a price for them. But that’s how desperate people are getting. When we are all still here next year, it should be a great year to buy up those hot stones of today.
