As a kid I was the type to be knee deep in the muddy creek exploring the nature around me. I collected rocks like they were pirates gold, and I, of course, was the lucky pirate. When birthdays came in my family, I chose my birthday outing to be (surprise!) going to our nearest rock shop to find the newest, coolest, shiniest, most glittery rock I could find to take home and add to my collection. One specific specimen I still (at 29 years old) hold dear to my heart is a spiky insect-like piece that I now know as aragonite!
Crystal life has helped me learn and become educated not only on the beauty of the earth around me but also has allowed me to truly feel what our stones can do for us. Even as a kid I was pulled naturally to an aragonite stone, something I often see fitting to help me in my daily life as an adult. Aragonite is a grounding stone that helps me keep myself focused and my head out of the clouds. It is helpful in times of stress which we all need! It can assist in finding patience and gives me strength.
