April. New month, new birthstone! And for those of you who don't know, we're now in the month of the diamond. So basically, it's every girl's favorite month! However, if you're like me, it's kind of hard to justify buying yourself a diamond if you don't have a good reason for it.
So I'm going to help you out here, Quartz is the next best thing. Here's why:
Let's get right to the point, Quartz crystals are absolutely stunning. What some people may not know is that when this stone is first pulled from the earth they aren't perfectly white like we are all so used to seeing. They actually have a more yellow/goldish hue that is sometimes bleached to get that beautiful clear look or is dyed in a bunch of different colors. Pink, blue, purple, you name it.
Not only are they beautiful, they're also pretty powerful in the spiritual department.
It's been said that the intrinsic properties of all quartz crystals are supposed to heal, cleanse, balance and strengthen the chakras, resulting in physical, mental and emotional well-being as well as initiating and strengthening our innate intuitive abilities. Pretty cool, right?
Another reason why I believe that Quartz is a totally justified substitution for diamonds as the April birthstone is that Quartz doesn't have to be limited to just jewelry. You can also see it in decor or as solid pieces in places of spiritual healing and mediation.
