First time in a while I picked crystals for myself and wow. I got lucky. Four palm sized pieces, and I spent $35.

A "broken" piece of clear quartz. Frankly, I think this is beautiful. The break is really smooth and clean, and there's some fantastic inclusions and it's crackled up really nice. For $4!

Another $4 find. This is an orthocera. There are some chips along the side. Can you spot them? I couldn't at first either, and the picture hides them pretty much completely. This is a fossilized cephlapod, and according to jewelexi, this stone is really fitting for where I am right now:
As related to root chakra fossils holds the energy of the Earth, it reminds people that a light of day is waiting for you after darkness. It is assumed that fossils motivates the individual and help them to reborn when they chose to change and come back from depression. Orthoceras fossils reinforce earth energies as well as support it helps to balance emotions, increase confidence, stimulates the mind and leads to openness and innovation. It feels grounding and help to gather knowledge in addition it also empowers accomplishments.
Orthoceras fossils an excellent healing stone spiritually heals the past life setbacks of an individual by helping him to access it and in overcoming fears engendered in the past. Fossils are believed to infuse confidence in the wearer and assists in business success. Orthoceras lifts the depressed people out and makes them emotionally stable. (Source)
This feels like a good stone for where I am.

 Peacock ore. This piece was only $10 and it was at least three times the size of my old piece. They had bigger pieces to, but I liked the amount of colour on this piece. This is a stone of healing and energy work (Source) and that's perfect for me getting back into this kind of work.

 Crazy lace agate. only $15. I'm surprised I liked this one, because I usually don't like raw stones. Crazy lace agate is also called happy lace, and it's a stabilizing stone, and promotes liveliness and security (Source). I feel like this is a good charging stone. I can put jewellery here or other stones.

When the shop didn't have a black tourmaline egg, Percival didn't choose tumbled pieces, or a sphere. He then gravitated to a wand. At the time I didn't think much of it, but now...think about it.

Black tourmaline offers protection and helps manage fear, right?

And Grindelwald stole his wand, right?

So of course he'd gravitate to it. It's incredibly symbolic. His wand couldn't save him the first time.

So I don't purposefully assign or find crystals for headmates, but sometimes they find ones they like. Jojen, for example, had a green adventurine heart.

After my final exam and hair appointment, we went to the crystal store. Percival was just following me around at first, but I noticed he was drawn to the three window crystals they had: Clear quartz, rose quartz, and amethyst. I told him to go through the baskets and pick ones he liked.

I told him to look at stuff and see what else he likes. He kept taking me to thinks he knew I liked, and I told him to put me aside, and pick what he likes.

He was drawn to egg shaped crystals and to black tourmaline. There was no black tourmaline eggs, but we found a nice wand on sale.

We'll keep our eyes open for an egg, but I found it interesting he was drawn to egg shapes. Eggs are symbols of fertility and new life and rebirth. Black tourmaline is a protection stone, especially against dark energy. It also helps against claustrophobia and fears.

He won't admit it, but he's been having a rough day today. He went through so much, and he's still in a place where he doesn't admit it. So finding himself drawn to this stone is pretty significant.

Another fun aside is that our total came to $66.6(7).
