1. What is Sunburn?

The sun is a huge energy from which we receive energy. It is beneficial for healthy living. Direct sunlight makes arthritis feels better, vitamin D production is in full production and our energy is enhanced. But too much sun isn’t always so good. In spite of all its positive uses, ultra violet (UV) rays that are shot out of the sun, remain very harmful for anyone who spends a large amount of time in the sun without proper protection. The most common effect of exposure to UV rays is sunburn. Sunburn is the damage caused to skin cells when they have absorbed too much energy from these UV rays. Sunburn causes blood to rush to the affected area as the body tries to cool the burn, and the damaged skin ultimately peels away. Sometimes, sunburn goes beyond the first degree burn stage to blisters. In this case, a physicians assistance shoul be consulted. In addition to the burning pain on the skin, sunburn can ultimately cause skin cancer. There has been a miscommunication between the sun’s energy and the bodie’s energy. Since it is in the middle of the summer for most of us, we have already had our first sunburn without trying. The stones featured in this issue of mineral essence all help relieve some aspect affected by sunburn.

2. Crystal Meaning of Angelite

Angelite is considered a gift from the angels. It's a perfect stone to use to contact and communicate with the angels and spiritually aligned beings to receive information for yourself and others. Good for dream work and their meanings. Considered a third eye and crown Chakra stone. It is an excellent choice to help smooth your emotional body.

These four healing crystals help re-establish communications within your own energy fields and your physical body after the communication was overdone with the sun.

7. How do Angelite, Siberian Blue Quartz, Larimar and Rose Quartz relate to mineral makeup?

Of course, the answer to that question lies in their mineral content.

Silica can be found in Siberian Blue Quartz, Larimar and Rose quartz. Spiritually speaking, silica enhances the perception of the physical and spiritual world so that you can work harmoniously and in sink with them both. It helps you to be on-the-ready for any situation

Calcium is a building block to mica and can be found in both Angelite and Larimar. Spiritually speaking, calcium promotes mental growth. It regulates the development of the personality so that it doesn’t grow too fast or too slow.
