I read recently that fluorite is a good crystal for empaths. http://dragonmoon.ca/main/product_info.php/fluorite-rough-p-16145here is what it says,
Fluorite is a stone that helps the healer, heal. Great for people who are empathic and tend to absorb the feelings of people around them. It is said when you carry a piece of fluorite with you, it can help shield you from absorbing too much from others. A stone of mystics and psychics. Aura cleansing, used for protection.
It is also good for pain, especially arthritic pain. I have a friend who has had many broken bones and he carries a fluorite with his for when pain flares up. It works fast too. Just hold it on the joint for about 10min and it feels like it numbs the nerves. You can still tell the spot you were having trouble but it is like the pain receptors are sleepy. Not sure how it does that but I have felt itwork myself when I had shoulder pain.
Nice wand, I don't have one yet but that is on my "want to buy"list.
