Feeling (attracted to the colour) green?


It balances & refreshes us with its cool & warm nuances from ‘forest’ to ‘lime’ appointing ‘olive’ to be the ambassador of peace & ecology.


Green is the prime colour of the world, and that
from which its loveliness arises. ~Pedro Calderon de la Barca
(dramatist, poet & writer, 1600-1681)

Green Garnet enhances spiritual relationships, often including self-love & a state of peaceful solitude without loneliness.  It promotes individuality without egocentricity and, on the whole, reminds us of the universal nature of our human existence.


—  To honour the environment within and around us

Tranquillity of Green Man


In perfect alignment with the energy of Tranquillity, prosperity & peace are Mother Earth’s beautiful crystals in all green shades & hues. Welcome the Green Man, ruler of flora & fauna, into your aura & activate your own healing innocence as you unite with the vital spirit of all things natural.


Great tranquillity of the heart is his
who cares for neither praise not blame. ~Thomas à Kempis
(copyist & writer, c. 1380-1471)
