I've heard that when buying gemstones you need to get the one which attracts you. I've been looking to buy a clear quartz piece for a while now. I've seen so many of them, all very pretty, but I've never bought one. I was searching for the one that will attract my attention, but could not find it - until now.
The funny thing is, I didn't find it myself. As a matter of fact, it found me!
My friend Kristina recently returned from a trip to London and she brought a handful of gemstones for each of our friends. She spread them on the table and told us to pick whichever stone we liked. There were two pieces of rose quartz (very pretty ones), then some leopardskin jasper (which look truly amazing), a stone full of miniature shells (which, I've just learned, is agatized turritella fossil) and a piece of natural clear quartz. When I saw it, I knew it was the one for me. Perhaps I was a bit childish insisting to choose first... but I'm sure no one will hold a grudge.
