Everything
Let’s take a closer look at the All Hallow’s Eve Box, shall we?

The Crystals:

Only Crystals
All Stones with Cards


Ruby Hexagon:
Ruby Hexagons
are a strong heart chakra crystal able to open & activate the Heart Chakra. Ruby helps us to see the true nature of love, & reveals the Divine Love in every thing in the Universe. Using Ruby can help you open up & to receive the Divine Love, as well as become a vehicle through which Divine Love can flow to others. Ruby heals & balances emotions, makes you more emotionally aware, & helps you to connect to others emotionally.

Aligns with the Root & Heart Chakras & Zodiac signs Aries, Cancer, Leo, Sagittarius, & Scorpio.

All Crystals with Cards
Black Obsidian:
Black Obsidian can be a very intense stone to work with & you must be ready to confront your issues when working with this stone. Healers often use Black Obsidian to help those that are unable or unwilling to let go of past traumas or stored negativity. Carrying or wearing Black Obsidian assists in dispersing negativity around the physical, mental, emotional, & spirit bodies.

Aligns with the Root Chakra & Zodiac signs Sagittarius & Scorpio.

Trio with Cards
Smokey Quartz:
Smokey Quartz is commonly used for protection & to release any negative emotions that you have stored in your body. It is a very grounding stone & can be used to enhance your powers of manifestation. It helps you to integrate any information you may receive from spirits of loved ones that have passed & ground them into your lower chakras for better understanding.

Aligns with the Root & Solar Plexus Chakras & Zodiac signs Capricorn, Sagittarius & Scorpio.

Upclose
Septarian:
Septarian is a powerful grounding stone. It allows for better tolerance & patience, as well as emotional flexibility. It can gauge the underlying cause of an illness when meditated upon, & focuses the body into healing itself. Septarian can absorb your energy when held over a period of time & transmits that energy into strength when needed.

Aligns with the Root Chakra & Zodiac sign Taurus.

Citrine Cluster:
Citrine is known to attract success & wealth. Working with Citrine can help one to overcome depression, release anger, & learn effective communication skills. Citrine can activate one’s imagination, bringing more creative visions to a clearer mind. Citrine opens the mind to new ideas, help you decide which are most likely to succeed, allow those ideas to evolve & follow through with them to create lasting abundance for yourself.

Aligns with the Sacral, Crown & Solar Plexus chakras & Zodiac signs Aries, Leo, & Libra.

Citrine Side View
Each of the crystal specimens in this box & all the Awakening in a Boxes are very high-quality stones. The cards they come with offer up a wealth of information to explain the properties of each stone just as I have included above with each accompanying crystal.

Crystals and Cards
I love how collectible the beautiful cards are along with the gorgeous crystals!

Awakening in a Box Exclusive All Hallows Eve Blend Roller Ball Perfume:

Skulls
This cute skull & spider altar cloth is perfect to decorate your sacred space for Samhain. Forgive my wrinkled cloth here, I needed to iron it before I took the picture! It is super soft & stylish.

Witchy Talisman Necklace:

Necklace
I love anything to do with moons, especially crescent ones so this was a wonderful item to be included in this box! It’s on a nice cord & is well-made.

Pentagram Coaster/Altar Tile:

Coaster
The Pentagram is actually a symbol of spiritual shielding and ethereal world intelligences. Perfect for using on your altar when doing divination during the thinning of the veil.

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards:

Gypsy Witch Cards
One of my favorite items in this box, this deck of colorful cards works double duty not only as fortune-telling cards, but also a playing card deck!

Gypsy Cards
Cards Up Close
Mlle. Le Normand, the celebrated French Mystic, has left such an imprint upon history that any more than a cursory reference here would be superfluous. It suffices only to say that it was Mlle. le Normand who predicted to the great Napoleon, his phenomenal rise & sudden fall. Mlle. Le Normand was one of the greatest living prophets & was so recognized by the nobility of Europe.

Gypsy Cards Showcased with Crystals

Above are some of my favorite images on the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Deck.

Black Candle & Key to Enhancing Your Intuition Spell:

Candle
This beautiful candle includes wrapped around it a spell to help enhance your intuition. The care & design of the spell, from the paper it is printed on to the added magical key charm attached to the candle is simply mystical & wonderful. Such attention to detail is given to everything in the Awakening in a Box themes & curation. You can see that when you uncover every box.

Favorites
Above are a few of my stand-out favorites from this box. The crystals from AiaB are as always, superior quality & amazing to collect. Often included are crystals that are completely new to me & that I had not yet had in my collection. The Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Cards are amazing & fun to work with. The imagery on each is vivid & magical. The candle & Enhancing Intuition Spell were so well made.

Awakening in Box packs a serious punch & has been one of my top favorites in my The Subscription Box Chronicles series for the thought & care that was put into each one. I urge you to try Awakening in a Box for yourself, it is a nice price point & a great start into collecting & understanding about different types of crystals/minerals.
