Anyway, it looks like the other two purchases I made at the Crystal stall were very timely. I bought (based on attraction) a Manganocalcite and an Amazonite... This is what sources say about these Crystals (from, http://www.crystalsandjewelry.com/metaphysicalproperties_a.html) :

While these Crystals didn't prevent my distructive behaviour this afternoon, I feel that having them in my possession may have had something to do with how sick I felt afterwards. Certainly, I feel compelled to work harder on this part of my relationship with my children. I apologise to both of them this after, especially Luey - I know that won't take back my actions, but I hope it is the last time I have to apologise for those actions.
