Hi I have only just found your site when I looked up the beautiful fuchite which I was recently attracted to and couldn't put back down.
It weighed heavily in my hand and I was unable to put it back onto the table. Love the information you have and look fwd to working with this lovely crystal.
However my story relates to the black obsidian that I was instantly attracted to which was set in silver in a little jewellers shop about a year ago.
My mother knew I was attracted to it and bought it for me there and then and I have to say I can now say I am very grateful to her for this.
I put it on straight away but found that I could only wear it for short periods of time before feeling overwhelmed. I changed instantly from the moment I put it on. I also noticed that I changed back again as soon as I took it off. It has only been up until recently that I have been able to keep the pendant on for a long period of time.
As soon as I put it on I found I became much harder and stronger. I was able to say things that I wouldn't normally have the courage to say. It threw things at me testing me continuously. I would remove it when it became too much and I didn't want to deal with the situation.
My beautiful obsidian showed my a version of myself like a mirror, but not all of myself just the parts of me that I hated and detested terribly. It still does but I am slowly learning to like myself and all my negative traits and to start using them in a positive light instead of just ignoring them and pretending they don't exist. This stone has shown me the deepest darkest depths of my soul and has shown me the courage to face my own inner demons and to not be afraid of myself and my power.
I have to warn anyone wanting to wear this stone that it is extremely powerful and at times quite frightening and can take some time to become accustomed to. But stick with it because it can show you the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm starting to see the light now and can honestly say the power of this amazing stone is worth the pain and heartache to achieve the amazing learning that it has graciously imparted to me.
Love and Light to you all, Leigh
