What are you missing in your life right now? Possibly some calm and peace of mind if you’re reading this in the middle of the pandemic we’re currently living through. Aura Gems might have just the solution.
This kooky shop in a Hamra sidestreet sells hundreds of different gems and crystals, perfect for beautifying your home or just bringing some good vibes into your life. Owner and manager Silia Said has a wealth of knowledge to help you find the ideal gemstone for yourself or for someone else. In need of some self loving? She’ll dig out the perfect glossy rose quartz or sparkling citrine piece. Or maybe you need something to soothe your lockdown nerves? Here’s a piece of sea green aventurine. Every time I visit, I learn something new about the incredible metaphysical properties of crystals. If nothing else, you’ll leave having admired some eye candy in all colours of the rainbow, and very possibly with your pockets a few dollars lighter.
