When I bought the Fyi the government is way deadlier than any virus sweater orange calcite, I was feeling burnt out, and the idea of a boost to my creative energy, however fake it might be, sounded nice. Plus, the description, as divorced from its possible origins as it was, made a sort of sense. Warm, orange, light, confidence. These words fit together. I wanted to feel more creative and energized, like new, joyful ideas could bubble up inside me at any time. The power of the crystal wasn’t in what it could do to my chakras. Instead, it was a symbol of my desire; its power was a reminder of the time I said “I want this.” It felt innocent, and arbitrary. If I needed something to remind myself of my own creativity, might as well be this pretty rock.
