When it comes to the holidays, we can't get enough of some of the themed stuff. You've got eggnog, symbols, ornaments, and so much more. Not to mention things like holiday movies and shows or desserts. But what about a holiday crystal? Do we have any snowy seasonable stones? Well, technically, there aren't many. But let's start our own trend and make a list of some seasonal stones.
How about we add snowflake obsidian, chestnut jasper, selenite, and spirit quartz to our list of holiday stones!
You can't act surprised that this is on the list, right? It's right in the name. For the holiday season, snowflake obsidian is a wonderful crystal that echoes some of the season's beauties.
The stone itself is said to be a symbol of peace, harmony, and balance. Talk about the three things we would love to have this holiday season!

By the candle light comes the ghost of crystal past, present, and future! Spirit quartz is a super awesome stone with a smooth lavender coat. Given its name, you would be right in assuming it that, by superstition and folklore, it was a stone associated with spirits.
It's not all spooky, however, as the stone was once believed to bring happiness and delight. Well, even if you're not the superstitious type, spirit quartz can help put a smile on our faces for sure!
Spirit quartz, physically, is a type of quartz. Depending on the color, however, it can be called many different things. When it's purple, it's also called "cactus amethyst". When it's yellow or gold, it's called "pineapple quartz".
Regardless, it's an amazing stone that we love over here! And we have some spirit quartz for sale. Just in case you want to add something interesting to someone's stocking.
