Over-the-top celebrities and trends are killing crystal juju | Bega District News

Lifestyle, wellness crystals, Amy Cooper, Rock on Kate Mantello, wellness trends

During the lockdown, I reconsidered my position on crystals. Have you sat on crystals while you thought? I heard Britney Spears did that. No, but Britney is relevant to this conversation. Celebrities give crystals a bad name. Katy Perry believes she attracts men. Lady Gaga got naked and hugged a huge rose quartz. Adele says she has hiccups without her crystals. Kim Kardashian sells perfume with crystal motifs. And do you remember Heidi and Spencer Pratt from The Hills? The birth of their son Gunner in 2017 was surrounded by more than $ 50,000 worth of crystals, and Daddy has a $ 1 million collection. You’re forgetting the ultimate celebrity schlock skirt: Gwyneth Paltrow’s infamous jade egg, which promised all kinds of healing benefits when worn where the sun doesn’t shine. I remember there was a lawsuit. Exactly. Famous people have done for crystals what they did for pain relievers, small dogs, and Buddhism. And the lockdown only made it worse. In LA, the rich and famous fill their houses with stone-sized “status crystals” that cost six-figure sums. Naturally. Why carry it in your purse when you can use it as a throne? But crystals don’t deserve this. They’re beautiful, they’re benign, and they’re from earth, which is more than I can tell on my smartphone. More lifestyle: Please don’t tell me that you’re going to give up Gwyneth entirely on me. No. But I’m excited about a new book called Rock On by Kate Mantello, an Australian crystal expert. She is a “spiritual rebel” and her guide to gemstones and their various vibrations is surprisingly down to earth. She’s not trying to sell you a sofa-size amethyst, but she makes a good case for holding a small amethyst for added serenity while you take deep breaths. And whether it’s the gorgeous pink hue or a deeper love that emanates from its core, rose quartz somehow makes me happy. Is there concrete evidence that crystals can do more than just decorate? Modern medicine doesn’t come to the gem party. However, it is worth remembering that in 1880 the physicist Pierre Curie discovered that crystals can transmit electricity. The computer and electronics industry depends on crystal technology. So maybe we shouldn’t underestimate the juju of gemstones. Besides, they look so very pretty. I think it’s time for rock and roll.
