Adorned with beautiful swirls, this stunning crystal is often associated with the Goddess Juno, who is thought to have been so enamoured by the crystal that she would drop little pieces of it on to the Earth as a gift for its people.

Encouraging us to love and protect ourselves - as well as the people we love -it will help you remember to nurture yourself too this week.
Like the sun - which so selflessly shares its light with the world - you may have been giving a lot of yourself to others lately, and may find yourself feeling very drained as a result this week. Constant demands from friends, family members and bosses may leave you feeling totally exhausted, and you could find yourself wanting to stick an 'out of order' sticker on your forehead!

Give their guardian angel a helping hand by sending them an Opal crystal.
You may find yourself feeling very insecure about a relationship, friendship or work situation this week.

Wave goodbye to your sadness and say hello to your happiness - by wearing a piece of Garnet jewellery, or keeping one nearby.
There may be a power struggle between you and a friend, partner or boss this week. Unreasonable demands from partners, bosses and family members may leave you feeling very unsettled, and you could find yourself wanting to throw a big piece of Black Tourmaline at someone! Protect yourself from their negativity this week by placing a Chrysoprase crystal in your home/work place, or keeping one nearby.
You may find yourself reminiscing about the past this week. Memories of friends, partners or family members who've passed away may leave you feeling very emotional, and you may find yourself feeling very lonely, tearful and vulnerable. Nurture your mind, body and soul this week by placing a Unakite crystal under your pillow - or holding one by your heart for a few minutes each night.
Highly revered by the ancient Egyptians and Greeks, this beautiful crystal is synonymous with love, security and harmony, and encourages you to spend some time with the people you love this week. Deep and meaningful heart to hearts with parents, siblings and family members could leave you feeling very emotional, and you may find yourself feeling very nostalgic about the past.
This stunning crystal is often associated with the Goddess Jurate - who is thought to have lived in a castle made entirely of Amber. Heartbroken when her father - enraged that she'd fallen in love with a mortal - destroyed her castle (killing her lover in the process), her tears are thought to have combined with the broken pieces of her castle, forming what we know now as Amber. As such, it suggests you may find yourself mourning the loss of how things used to be with someone you love this week.
