A vibrant chalcedony quartz of a red or orange colour found in India, Brazil, and Uruguay. It stimulates courage, self-confidence, and ambition. Aids blood disorders and digestive problems.
This stone often contains golden flecks of pyrite (iron sulphide). These golden flecks on the deep blue matrix of the stone resemble a clear star studded sky and thus the stone was known as 'The Night Stone'. Its rich blue colour made it a favourite with royalty. Lapis alleviates depression, relieves heart and spleen problems. A lovely delicate stone the deserves care from its wearer, as it is sensitive to hot water and cosmetics.
A beautiful green stone, exhibiting layers with dark and light, often concentric banding. It is in fact a major copper ore, with substantial deposits presently being mined in Zaire and Zambia. When worn it raises the spirits and induces a general feeling of happiness. It is believed to alleviate asthmatic problems and toothache. During Medieval times those who wore Malachite were said to be protected from the power of witches. The stone afforded special protection for children.
Onyx, a form of chalcedony, is often artificially coloured jet black. It aids concentration and self-control, whilst also balancing male and female polarities.
This stone has a vivid sky blue or green-blue colour, often containing grey or brown veins. It has been highly valued by many cultures. The Turks, after whom the stone is named, attached Turquoise to their horses bridles for protection. The Native Americans believed the stone to be 'the breath of life', symbolising the sky and reminding humans of their spirituality. When worn it strengthens the entire anatomy, brings wisdom and attract friendship. It brings happiness and luck, especially when given as a gift.
Grey Mother of Pearl
a smooth, shining, iridescent, organic substance forming the inner layer of the shell of some molluscs. This stone heightens intuition, sensitivity, and imagination and it is said to be a particularly potent stone for the protection of children.
It is often associated with silver deposits and a few silver mines produce rhodochrosite as a by product. Manganese carbonate is extremely destructive to the amalgamation process used in the concentration of silver ores, and so until it became highly sought after by collectors, they were often discarded on the mine dump.
