  • Extravagant Pearls

    The pearl is the oldest known gem, and for centuries it was considered the most valuable. A fragment of the oldest known pearl jewelry, found in the sarcophagus of a Persian princess who died in 520 BC, is displayed in the Louvre in Paris.

    To the ancients, pearls were a symbol of the moon and had magical powers. In classical Rome, only persons above a certain rank were allowed to wear pearl jewelery.

  • Geodes

    Crystals have been used for healing, meditation and expanding the mind to touch the spirit world.

    A crystal cluster formation has many points embedded in the base.

    The emerging crystals may be large or small. Crystal Clusters radiate energy into the surrounding room or space and also are used to absorb negative energy.

    They are often used to cleanse a room or other stones by leaving the stone overnight on the cluster.

  • Birthstones

    Traditionally, a birthstone is associated with each month of the year. For example, the birthstone for January is a garnet, while lucky babies born in April get a diamond as their birthstone.

    The origin of birthstones is believed to date back to the breastplate of Aaron which contained twelve gemstones representing the twelve tribes of Israel. The current list dates back to 1912 with only
    one addition since then – the tanzanite was added to December. There are numerous legends and myths about birthstone healing powers and their
    therapeutic influence.

    According to these legends, wearing a gemstone during its assigned month heightened its healing powers. For the full effect, individuals needed to own all twelve and alternate them monthly.

  • Chakras

    Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel”. A chakra is like a vortex: a constantly revolving wheel of energy. These vortexes connect the subtle bodies and act as transducers for life-force energy.
    The chakras distribute the life force through the physical and subtle bodies. They are the source of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy.
    Traditionally, there are seven major chakras associated with the physical body. They are aligned with the spine and located in the base of the spine, the lower abdomen (sacral), the solar plexus, the heart, the throat, the centre of the forehead (third eye), and the crown of the head.
    When our chakras are blocked, or not in balance, the free flow of energy is impeded, leading to physical, emotional, mental or spiritual dis-ease. When the chakras are unblocked and free-flowing, we enjoy optimum health.
    Each chakra is associated with specific colours and crystals and governs different aspects of human emotion and behaviour. Using gemstones with the chakras can have a great healing effect
