Posted by Heather McConnell on 18th Dec 2020
Travel can be thrilling, from exploring new places to reuniting with faraway loved ones. However, it is also anxiety-inducing. A trip can be one long list of worries: Did you pack everything? Will you miss your flight? What happens if you get lost in a foreign country? Will you be able to find someone who speaks your language? Crystals have amazing properties that can keep you safe and calm during travel. No matter what you encounter, they will protect you! Whether you’re just driving to a friend’s house for dinner or backpacking through Europe, leave a stone in your car’s glove compartment, slip it into your carry-on, or simply keep one in your pocket.

Aquamarine imparts a calm inner strength to get you through long travel days.

This gentle stone guards you in subtle ways along your travels. Moonstone ensures that your luggage won’t be lost.
