Floating Camellia Arrangement With Rose Quartz

I know I made something almost exactly like this, maybe a week ago. Ok, longer than that. I'm not awesome of keeping track of how much time goes by. I don't know where it goes. I mean January is almost over. I mean it IS over. Geez. This month has been awesome for me. I'm excited about all the changed to come and really excited for 2015. I am also super excited about doing my Most Popular In January post. Thanks to the assistance of FoodGawker, CraftGawker and this Brit.co post, I should be seeing more variety in my most popular posts. Homemade wood sealer got really popular on CraftGawker, which I love because that was one of my first posts and also one of my favorites, not to mention most useful posts. If you've been reading a while you know my top posts have been mostly the same for the past 4 or 5 months. I guess Pinterest users know what they like. :) More power to you guys.

I guess I have a confession to make. I've been holding back a little of my weird-o, flower-child self.

You: "Really, but you exfoliate with pineapple rind and wash your face with ground up oatmeal. Sounds pretty out there to me."

Well, today we're gonna take it to the next level and talk about crystals. I've always loved researching the different meanings of natural elements. Like these camellias represent young love and loyalty because the calyx and the flower stay bound even when plucked, which shows their devotion. Isn't that sweet? I think it's nice to know these things and keep things in your house for a purpose. 

In my arrangement I used Rose Quartz, Black Tourmaline, and Crystal Quartz. 

Rose Quartz has always been one of my favorite stones. It's associated with the heart chakra and helps dissolve resentments. It also encourages bonding and unconditional love. 

Clear Quartz is a good balancing stone and can charge or amplify other crystals. It's got several other uses but my favorite is that it balances the chakras and supports the purposes of other stones. 

Black Tourmaline is known as a protection and grounding stone. It's also a purifying stone. So, if you find you need to get back to your center. This might be the stone for you.

Here's what you'll need:

  • A large glass container - I used this oversized brandy glass. I couldn't find it on Amazon. This would probably be a pretty simple thrift store find. 
  • Crystals - I used Rose Quartz, Black Tourmaline, and Crystal Quartz
  • Water 
  • White Camellias


  • Place your crystals at the bottom of your glass.
  • Fill with water and add your flowers at the top.
