When Lilith and Selene was just a twinkle in my eye, my two passions where crystals and jewellery. Ever since I was a child, I loved collecting different crystals and basking in all their glory. Over time I'd totally forgotten about this pastime of my youth. Last year, I rediscovered this love of mine in an attempt to bring some positivity into a bleak moment in time for me (I'm sure you can agree with that too).
The more crystals I collected and the more I learnt about each one, the more I wanted to wear them. I searched and searched for crystal gemstone jewellery that would not only suit my personal style, but were also made from the high quality materials which I was in the process of transitioning my entire jewellery box to. I wanted jewellery that would seamlessly blend into my existing collection yet still had the meaningful properties of crystal gemstones.
Late 2020, my Mum found a pouch full of the crystals I used to adore from my childhood. I had no idea what each one meant back then, I just collected them because this one was a pretty colour and that one was a cool shape. I took this unearthing as a sign to dive into the world of jewellery design, and Lilith and Selene was born.
It was important for me to select the crystal gemstones that were included in our first collection based on the ones that called out to me most - these being Amethyst, Labradorite, Malachite and Moonstone. Find out why I picked these one specifically because of their metaphysical properties below.
Amethyst is thought to aid with physical, emotional and mental balance, and have overall calming properties. It is recommended for those who need help with making decisions, business, moving forward in life and coping with change. It is said that amethyst enhances your intuition and spirituality and is associated with the crown and third-eye chakras.
Known as the magic stone, labradorite is thought to assist with insecurity, anxiety and stress. It is recommended for those who need help with inspiration and originality. It is said that labradorite protects from negativity, while helping to awaken one's intuition, and is associated with the crown, third-eye and throat chakras.
Known as the stone of transformation, malachite is thought to guide the wearer with stepping out of your comfort zone. It is recommended for those who need help with clearing of negative energy and balancing emotions. It is said that malachite is good for using while interpreting dreams and meditation, and is associated with the heart chakra.
Moonstone is thought to assist with new beginnings, endings and change. It is recommended for those who need help with creativity and passion. It is said that moonstone is good for increasing intuition and insight, and is associated with the sacral, third-eye and crown chakras.
It is an extremely feminine stone and helps to intensify your "goddess" energy - perfect for channeling your inner Selene.
