*On a personal note on Optical Calcite, I had a dog who had a corneal abrasion on her left eye and the vet had her on 4 different eye drops in an attempt to save her eye. I placed 4 pieces on top of her crate in all for corners and left them. Her eye did heal and yes, I know it was aided by the drops, but I firmly believe this crystal helped as well because healing was much quicker. Please know though, this is my personal experience and you should always seek the help of a medical professional in any situation caused by illness or injury.

How you use them is entirely up to you, but you can place them directly on the source of ailment, lay them around your head, wear them, use a healing grid or meditate with them. When I get a headache, I use Amethyst as my go to stone and simply lay it on my third eye.
