I had just been through a very harsh, tough surgery. I was needing some soft energy in my life. So I began painting pastels and neutral metallic tones. I've always loved the color of champagne. It's so soothing and peaceful. A "champagne" crystal can be used to gently dissolve negative energies and emotional blockages. It provides for balancing of the yin-yang energy and is an excellent grounding stone. It further acts as a protective stone, providing for an encompassing barrier of energy around the user. I simply love the softness and pearlescent paints I used. A fun new avenue for me. Heavenly champagne.
