Since your "office"- whatever that may be in the context of your life- is a place where you spend large portions of time, it's especially wonderful to be able to incorporate crystals and gemstones into your work life to help keep it happy and vibrant.
In stressful moments, having a few stones on your desk can help to de-stress when tensions run high. Simply seeing them there or holding one in your hand when you're on a high pressure situation helps to dissipate stress and keep your mind on point. Gifting stones to colleagues can also help those around you excel and make interpersonal interactions more stress free and pleasant, and is a nice way to spread positive energy throughout your workspace.

Sitting in traffic or standing in a packed commuter train or bus on the way to or from work can be stressful. In her book Crystal Energy: 150 Ways to Bring Success, Love, Health, and Harmony into Your Life, author Mary Lambert suggests keeping an amber stone in your car to maintain a supportive atmosphere. Sometimes called the "honey stone" because it is soft and warm to the touch, amber is known to have a calming energy that absorbs negativity. Place it on the dashboard or in the glove compartment. Envision the stone creating a ring of gold energy around the car that protects you from harm. Cleanse the stone every few months to keep it working for you. If you commute by public transportation, carrying an amber stone can have a similarly positive effect.
