Just take a look at that beautiful stone. Isn’t it pretty. It reminds me of the sky which anyone who knows me knows that I love the sky, I always have. So much so, that I named my first daughter after it.
The picture doesn’t do this piece justice. The cloud like parts actually shimmer in the light. It’s really really breathtaking. I had been eyeing it for weeks and I’m so glad that it’s finally mine.

FUN SIDE NOTE: If you are new to stones, there are many different kinds of collectors, each drawn to stones and crystals for different reasons. Some use them for healing and believe they can physically and mentally aid in our body working to its full capacity. Others believe they have supernatural powers. I fall into the, I buy them because I like them category. However, I am a Christian and I believe that God uses whatever He wants to as conduits for his healing. I personally do not use them for healing purposes though.
When my husband bought me this stone he was excited to see that it was associated with nerves and the joints and spine. Recently he started using it to massage my back and shoulders and hips where I have the majority of my pain. He did this 3 nights in a row and those three nights I fell asleep with little to no pain. And I stayed asleep! Was it the energy and chemical make up of the stone? Who knows. 🙂 All I know is it’s a beautiful stone and I sure did sleep well.
