Stone Focus 

Hello Everyone! Welcome to our new page. As well as taking crystal healing courses, I have expanded our reference library, to share more about the stones that we use to create our jewelry. This page is to share some of that knowledge and those resources with you! More stones will be added a little at a time.

Amazonite - Crystal system is Triclinic, prismatic and Mohs' 6-6.5
Mostly an opaque, green sodium feldspar. Colour distribution is a regular. Luster is vitreous and it is sensitive to pressure. 

A stone of harmony, truth and communication.  Filtering information passing through the brain, and combining intellect with intuition, Amazonite allows you to see both sides of an argument and reach your own conclusions, supporting self-determination. The stone creates emotional balance and facilitates constructive expression of what has formally been left unsaid; expressing true thoughts without over-emotionalism. It is of particular benefit to musicians and writers. It is also said to protect against electromagnetic pollution.

Carnelian - Chalcedony Species. Trigonal, Mohs' 7 
It is a brownish red to orange, translucent to opaque chalcedony variety. The colouring agent is iron; the colour can be enhanced by heating. Most Carnelian's offered today are agates, which are died and then heat treated. When held against the light, the colour variety shows stripes, natural Carnelian shows a cloudy distribution of color. 

Carnelian was the beloved of the Egyptians, who believed that it assisted the soul on its journey and had great protective powers in the afterlife. They wore it to calm anger, jealousy, and envy. A stabilizing stone with high energy. Is excellent for restoring vitality, building confidence and courage, and enhancing passion.  Also a stone of abundance, it motivates for success in business and other matters. Carnelian has the ability to cleanse other stones.
