The beauty of a rock

Rocks. Not high on my list of beautiful things. Rocks are the big chunks outside my building. Decorative for some. But not exactly beautiful for me. But lately my husband took me to a local rock shop to find items for a personal divination system I’m devising. I was overwhelmed by the beauty.

There are the obvious candidates of course. Who can deny the beauty of an amethyst tower?  True wonder. But as I hunted for pieces to inspire me on my task I found much less showy sources of beauty.

Malacite. It’s dark greens and browns speak of the fields and forests. Polished it shows a type of solid no nonsense beauty that is unrivalled in most of nature. I spent many moments at the shop gazing into the depths of all of the pieces offered. Finally selecting one I decided it would represent earth in my divination system.

Polished moonstone. Cool to the touch.  Opalescent to the eye. It’s beauty speaks of hidden mysteries. Things known and yet unknown. As I marveled at the beauty of this stone I realized it was the perfect choice to represent balance in my divination system. The balance between the realms.

All of the stones were beautiful in their own way. I ended up selecting about twelve of them. I felt a type of serenity. Peaceful in a way speaking of solidity. I had been brought to the right place for my purpose.

As it was the day after Black Friday they were having a promotion. Spin the wheel and win a prize. My husband spun and won a raw geode.

Butt ugly I couldn’t help but think. When we got it home we got a hammer and broke it open. Inside was an array of beautiful quartz crystals. Perfect for higher consciousness. It’s rough exterior hid its inner beauty. A fitting end to a day filled with beauty.
