Rainbow Crystals: You are a Rainbow of Possibilities
Like all of us, Mother Nature has her grey days. When this happens, she weeps. Sometimes her tears trickle down softly, but when she sobs, we feel her reign in a full-blown torrential downpour. We always know when Mother Nature’s spirits are high again because her smile is reflected through the sun, which peaks out from behind a cloud. Once the gloominess has dissipated and the sun colors the world once again, it’s hard not to be amazed at the beauty that surrounds us. You see that rainbow peak out of the clouds and fill the sky, bringing smiles, hope and an overwhelming sense of happiness. With rainbow crystals, you have the ability to make your own rainbow, and appreciate our colorful world on a daily basis. Every time you gaze down as your rainbow stones, all those feelings will reemerge to start your day off on the right foot.
