Some things are just more powerful in pairs. Like superfoods, workout buddies, and our personal favourite coupling: crystals. Turns out the stones we’re all obsessing over for raising our vibration, allowing us to manifest our desires, and helping us feel more grounded, are actually at their strongest when matched with an equally powerful partner. But how do you know which crystals are meant to be together and which are just not compatible?
For our “Summer of Crystals” series, we talked to Certified Crystal Experts Joey Wargachuk and Graciela Gabica from Happy Soul, to find out the best gem pairings (our most recent two are here and here). To give you, our readers, a chance to tap into the power of these pairs, Happy Soul is also offering an exclusive discount on these crystals in-store (just mention Well TO Do!) and online for the whole week following their announcement!
THIS WEEK’S PAIR: PINK TOURMALINE AND SNOWFLAKE OBSIDIAN
Why do these two crystals pair so well together?
Pink tourmaline is the broken heart-mending crystal, while snowflake obsidian is for greasing and releasing the feelings of loss. They pair up powerfully and double the crystal healing action.
Are there any crystals that these don’t pair well with? If so, which other crystals?
Tiger’s Eye would really set your emotions on fire and with not be a good addition to this pair.
What are the key properties of each crystal on their own and how does that change or intensify when they are paired together?
Pink Tourmaline is for healing a broken heart and snowflake obsidian is for releasing grieving and loss. Together these two connect the crown, heart and root chakras, clearing all the blockages from losing a loved one or having someone abandon or break your heart.
How do you suggest we keep these crystals together (we’re thinking: placing them in one place in your home, wearing them, making a grid, etc)?
In general, one can keep crystals they are working with in a little bag or in their purse. Use them in mediation or place them in a spot where you are living and working in to change the energy of that space.
This pair is good for holding during those ugly cries. Or place the snowflake at the foot of your bed and hold the pink tourmaline over your heart while lying down.
