Crystal Meanings

Over the years the team at Feel Crystals and Jewellery has gathered a huge amount of information about the healing properties of Crystals. The sources vary from personal experiences, client's feedback, books, to the vast pool of articles online. My favourite reference book, and by far our best seller is the Book of Stones by Naisha Ahsian and Robert Simmons. Naisha had a profound influence in my understanding of the crystal kingdom and I am very grateful for her teachings. The best thing she ever taught me was to learn to rely on my own experience. I strongly encourage you to do the same, grab a crystal and learn to connect with its information. Don't get too caught up on what other people say. There's lots of valuable information out there but they are only guide lines and may not be relevant to you. Be discerning and have fun exploring with your crystals!

History and Uses

Amethyst derives its name from ametusthos, meaning not intoxicated and relates to an ancient Greek legend. Dionysus, the god of celebration and revelry, declared he would have revenge on mortals for not drinking his wine. He decided to have the beautiful maiden named Amethyst eaten by his tigers while she was on her way to worship at the temple of Artemis, the virgin huntress. So, she called to Artemis for protection and the goddess turned her into a pure white quartz statue to save her from the tigers. When Dionysus saw how beautiful she was he was filled with remorse for his ruthlessness. He began to weep into his cup of wine which then spilled over the quartz statue turning it a beautiful shade of purple. Amethyst can range in colour from lilac pink, to purple red to deep purple. In ancient times the Romans inlaid their cups with it, believing it would protect them from drunkenness. Similarly, Catholic bishops wore Amethyst rings to prevent mystical intoxication. Likewise, kissing the ring was thought to keep people focused on spiritual thoughts. It was used for protection from black magic and treachery and to ensure victory in war and in hunting.

Geological Description

This crystal is part of the Quartz family with a trigonal crystal system and a hardness of 7. Its purple colour comes from trace amounts of iron and aluminium. We find that the best quality specimens come from Brazil and Uruguay.

History and Uses

Ametrine is a mixture of Amethyst and Citrine and is also known as Trystine or Bolivianite. The different colours are produced by the iron in the stone. This oxidises at different rates due to exposure to different temperatures as the crystal is formed. It was first seen in 17th Century Spain when it was presented to the Queen as a gift from the New World. Legend of the Bolivian Ametrine states that a mine was given to a Spanish conquistador. It was given to Felipe de Urriola y Goitia as a dowry gift from Anahi an Ayoreo Princess. When it came time for him to return to Spain Anahi planned to go with him, against the wishes of her people, who attempted to kill Don Felipe to prevent him from taking her. However, Anahi was accidentally killed as she was warning him of his fate and as she lay dying she gave him an Ametrine crystal. The two colours in the stone, purple and orange, represent how she was torn between her love for her tribe and her love for her husband.

Prosperity, well-being, improving flow of energy, elemental power, longevity Chakras: All Elements: All Zodiac Sign: Capricorn Number: 7

Ammolite Crystal Healing Properties

Ammolites are thought to be a high vibration stone believed to help activate both the etheric and physical DNA. As such, awakening our awareness to the "perfect" human state, in order to bring about evolutionary shifts in consciousness. Ammolites carry the full spectrum of colours of the first 7 chakras. This ancient shell is in the form of a spiral. As such, chakra energy flows in a spiral and so they may be used to improve the flow of energy or chi and transform negative energy into positive energy. Ammolites are believed to increase stamina, relieve trauma and be used in meditation to connect with past lives. They are thought to be stones of luck, prosperity and well-being, as such, they're believed to help alleviate depression and exhaustion.

History and Uses

Ammolite, also called gem Ammonite or Korite, is taken from the name of the Ancient Egyptian God Ammon, who was represented by a ram's head with twisted horns. This representation looked similar to the shell of the Ammonites which existed in prehistoric times. In the tradition of Feng Shui, it is called the Seven Colour Prosperity Stone. The beautiful iridescent colours of Ammolite in all the shades of the rainbow, represent the harmonious balance of fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. Furthermore, it is believed that the Ammolite absorbed all the knowledge of the universe, and is therefore able to enhance wisdom, increase wealth and improve the flow of chi. Placed in the home, it is said to transform negative energy, bring harmony and increase the vitality of the occupants and their visitors. The Blackfoot Indians refer to it as Buffalo Stone because it brought luck to the wearer during the buffalo hunt.

Care Instructions:

Ammolite, being an organic gemstone, requires extra care; do not use a commercial cleaning solution or ultrasonic cleaner and don't leave it soaking in liquid. Keep it away from perfumes, hairspray and household chemicals.

Geological Description

Ammolite is an organic (biogenic) gemstone, like pearls and amber, with a hardness of 3.5 - 5. It is formed from the iridescent shells (mother of pearl or nacre) of fossilised Ammonites, a type of ancient nautilus. They first existed in the Devonian period (over 400 million years ago) and went extinct at the end of the Cretaceous period. Ammonites were mollusks with shells that were tightly coiled on a single plane like a wheel. The shells of ammonites had hollow chambers separated by walls called septa. A tube called the siphuncle, connected the body with the chambers allowing the animal to fill them with water or air, changing its buoyancy in order to rise or descend in the ocean water column. The soft-bodied animal living in this shell most-likely resembled an octopus but with shorter arms. Only the last and largest chamber was occupied by the living animal, as it matured and grew, larger chambers were added at the opening. Ammonites varied in size from 2 meters (6.5 feet) down to 2 cm (0.75 inches) in diameter. The Ammonites, like all molluscs, secreted aragonite (a form of calcium carbonate and conchiolin) called nacre to form layers which built up over time. These layers diffract light at different intensities creating an iridescent vivid coloured crystalline surface much like the Paua shells of modern times. Ammolites are found in the Bearpaw Shale Formation in Alberta Canada and their wonderful colours are thought to have been created by the conditions in which they were formed. The inland subtropical sea, referred to now as the Western Interior Seaway, just east of the Rocky Mountains near Alberta Canada, receded near the end of the Mesozoic era and all the Ammonites died. Their remains were covered in mineral rich volcanic ash which flowed down from the mountains in rivers and buried the ammonites in a series of compressed layers of bentonite clay.

Affirmation

I convert all energy that I receive into positivity and love.

Ammonites may be especially useful for past life recall and to contact spirit guides. Traditionally, they were used to honour ancestors and to connect to ancient sources of knowledge.

History and Uses

Ammonites are invertebrates and extinct members of the subclass Ammonoidea, class Cephalopoda. Modern members include the nautilus, squid, cuttlefish and octopus. Ammonites first appeared during the Middle Devonian Period around 400 million years ago. They became especially abundant and widespread in the seas of the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, 175 million to 65 million years ago. Ammonites were mollusks with shells that were predominantly tightly coiled on a single plane like a wheel. The shells of ammonites had hollow chambers separated by walls called septa. A tube called the siphuncle, connected the body with the chambers allowing the animal to fill them with water or air, changing its buoyancy in order to rise or descend in the ocean water column. The soft-bodied animal living in this shell most-likely resembled an octopus but with shorter arms. Only the last and largest chamber was occupied by the living animal. As it matured and grew, larger chambers were added at the opening. Ammonites varied in size from 2 meters (6.5 feet) down to 2 cm (0.75 inches) in diameter. The name "ammonite" is derived from the name of the ancient Egyptian god Ammon who believed these creatures were divine. Ammon is represented in ancient literature by the head of a ram with twisted spiral horns that are reminiscent of an ammonites spiralled shells. Pliny the Elder, the Roman historian, described ammonites as the holiest stones in ancient Aethiopia because they were believed to bring prophetic dreams. Ammonites have had a long association with serpents in English legend. The 7th Century Saint Hilda of Whitby turned an infestation of snakes to stone to enable an abbey to be constructed. These petrified snakestones were carved or painted with a head on them and sold as pious souvenirs. During the early 19th century English fossil hunters referred to ammonites as cornemonius, a corruption of the Latin name hammonis cornu. Ammonites were used in folk medicine across Europe for snake bites, fertility, and birthing pains. In 18th century Germany and England they were added to water as drakestones (dragonstone) or crampstones to treat livestock. Sliced in half to make a pair, they were often given as wedding presents because they represented a journey and two parts coming together as a whole.

Geological Description

Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally having been dug up) are the mineralised or otherwise preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms. In ancient times, they were believed to be a gift from the stars and were revered by many cultures. Because of their age, they have been used throughout the centuries as a talisman for protection and long life. Fossilisation is actually a rare occurrence because organic materials tend to decompose. As such, the process requires relatively quick preservation of bodily remains. Normally, the remains need to be covered by sediment or trapped in resin as soon as possible. However, there are exceptions, such as if an organism comes to rest in an anoxic (without oxygen) environment at the bottom of a lake. The oldest known structured fossils date from 3.5 billion years ago. There are several different types of fossils and fossilisation processes, including permineralisation, mold or replacement fossils, compression fossils, resin fossils and trace fossils. Many fossils available on the market are from Morocco, which has vast deposits of Devonian Limestone, which date back three hundred and fifty million years ago. Other areas prominent for fossils are China, the USA, Germany, Canada, Russia and Australia.

FAQ's

How is Caribbean Calcite Formed?

Caribbean Calcite is formed through a combination of biological and geological processes. It is a type of calcium carbonate mineral that is primarily composed of aragonite, which is a form of calcium carbonate that is less stable than calcite. Caribbean Calcite is formed in shallow marine environments, where the warm, clear waters are rich in calcium and carbonate ions. The calcite crystals are formed by the accumulation of calcareous skeletons and shells of marine organisms such as coral, shells, and other marine creatures. Over time, these remains accumulate and undergo compaction and cementation, resulting in the formation of limestone deposits. In the case of Caribbean Calcite, the limestone deposits are then subjected to a secondary process of hydrothermal alteration, which involves the circulation of hot fluids through the rock. These fluids contain dissolved minerals and trace elements that react with the limestone, leading to the formation of the characteristic blue-green and white banded patterns seen in Caribbean Calcite. The unique coloration of Caribbean Calcite is believed to be due to the presence of copper and other trace elements in the hydrothermal fluids that cause the mineral to oxidize and change color.

Is Caribbean Calcite the same as Blue Aragonite?

In short, no. They are often confused due to their similar appearance, but they are different minerals. However, they both consist of calcium carbonate and Calcite can actually become Aragonite under particular circumstances called "pseudomorphing." This occurs when one mineral replaces another, while retaining the original mineral's shape and texture. In the case of aragonite turning into calcite, the process involves a gradual rearrangement of the crystal structure, resulting in the transformation of aragonite's orthorhombic crystal structure into calcite's trigonal crystal structure. This process can take thousands or even millions of years.

Can Caribbean Calcite go in Water?

Caribbean Calcite is a relatively soft mineral that is composed of calcium carbonate, which makes it vulnerable to damage or dissolution when exposed to water. When the crystal is in contact with water, it can dissolve, develop cracks, or lose its original shape, which can affect its appearance

History and Uses

Chrysoprase has been appreciated since ancient times. It was highly regarded by the Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians for its vibrant green colour. The stone was often used for carving cameos, beads, and ornamental objects. In ancient Egypt, chrysoprase was associated with fertility, prosperity, and protection. It was believed to bring good fortune and was often used in jewellery, amulets, and talismans. During the medieval and Renaissance eras, chrysoprase continued to be popular in jewellery, particularly in Europe. It was used to adorn crowns, rings, and religious artifacts.

Geological Description

Chrysoprase is a variety of chalcedony, which is a cryptocrystalline form of silica. It belongs to the quartz family and is known for its vibrant green colour, which is attributed to the presence of nickel impurities. The formation of chrysoprase involves a process known as replacement or metasomatism. Silica-rich fluids infiltrate the host rock and interact with the minerals present. Over time, these fluids deposit silica in the form of tiny microcrystals, creating the characteristic fine-grained texture of chalcedony. The presence of nickel impurities within the fluid contributes to the vibrant green colouration of chrysoprase. Chrysoprase is typically found in locations with significant nickel deposits, including Australia, Brazil, Germany, Poland, Russia, and the United States. Western Australia, in particular, is renowned for its high-quality chrysoprase deposits.

Affirmation

I embrace the soothing energy of Chrysoprase, finding inner peace, harmony, and emotional healing within its vibrant green embrace.

It is believed to assist the body with repairing tissues, oxygenating the blood, strengthening the female reproductive system and increasing vitality.

History and Uses

In Greece, Copper was known by the name chalkos. Similarly, in Roman times, it was known as Cyprium, named after Cyprus, where much of the copper was mined. It was then simplified to the Latin cuprum and in English copper. In ancient times, it was polished to make mirrors and was associated with the goddess of Love, Aphrodite and the planet Venus. Copper lumps were used as money by the Romans in the 6th through to 3rd centuries BC. Native copper has been used since 9000 BC in the Middle East. A copper pendant was found in northern Iraq that dates to 8700 BC. Copper smelting was most likely invented independently, in several different places, at different times throughout history. In ancient India, it was used as surgical instruments, and Egyptians used it to purify water and sterilise wounds. In addition, it was used in China, the UK and in North & South America, to make burial ornaments. Copper compounds are commonly found as copper salts. These give blue or green colours to minerals such as Azurite and Turquoise. As such, historically, they have been widely used as pigments. In modern times, because of its conductivity - both electrical and thermal - it is used in cables, wires and pipes. Its metaphysical uses are in conjunction with healing crystals, to make wands and other powerful healing tools because of its capacity to amplify and direct energy.

Fossils can assist you in your quest for transition, transformation and personal growth, helping you to understand the process of change. They can help you instil quality and excellence in your environment.

History and Uses

The name is derived from the Greek words kopros, meaning dung and lithos, meaning stone. Coprolites are fossilised animal dung. Their original composition has been replaced by mineral deposits, often silicates and calcium carbonates. They can be identified by their often spiral shaped structure. Coprolites have been found from the Cambrian period to recent times, and can be found all over the world. Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally having been dug up) are the mineralised or otherwise preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms. In ancient times, they were believed to be a gift from the stars and were revered by many cultures. Because of their age, they have been used throughout the centuries as a talisman for protection and long life.

Geological Description

Fossilisation is actually a rare occurrence because organic materials tend to decompose. The process requires the relatively quick preservation of bodily remains. Normally, the remains need to be covered by sediment or trapped in resin as soon as possible. However, there are exceptions to this. Such as, if an organism comes to rest in an anoxic (without oxygen) environment at the bottom of a lake. The oldest known structured fossils date from 3.5 billion years ago. There are several different types of fossils and fossilisation processes including permineralisation, mold or replacement fossils, compression fossils, resin fossils and trace fossils. Many fossils available on the market are from Morocco, which has vast deposits of Devonian Limestone, which date back three hundred fifty million years ago. Other areas prominent for fossils are China, the USA, Germany, Canada, Russia and Australia.

Fossilisation is actually a rare occurrence because organic materials tend to decompose and the process requires the relatively quick preservation of bodily remains. Normally, the remains need to be covered by sediment or trapped in resin as soon as possible. However, there are exceptions to this, such as if an organism comes to rest in an anoxic (without oxygen) environment at the bottom of a lake. The oldest known structured fossils date from 3.5 billion years ago. There are several different types of fossils and fossilisation processes including permineralisation, mold or replacement fossils, compression fossils, resin fossils and trace fossils. Many fossils available on the market are from Morocco, which has vast deposits of Devonian Limestone which date back three hundred fifty million years ago. Other areas prominent for fossils are China, the USA, Germany, Canada, Russia and Australia.

Geological Description

Green calcite is a mineral belonging to the carbonate group and is primarily composed of calcium carbonate (CaCO3). It is characterized by its vibrant green colour, which is typically caused by the presence of trace amounts of various impurities and minor elements. Green calcite often exhibits a translucent to opaque appearance with a vitreous to pearly lustre. In terms of its geological occurrence, green calcite can be found in a variety of environments. It is commonly formed in sedimentary rocks through the accumulation and consolidation of calcium carbonate-rich sediments. This process can occur in marine, lacustrine (lake), or even underground cave environments. Calcite is known to be a mineral that can precipitate directly from water, particularly in regions with high concentrations of dissolved calcium and carbonate ions. It can also form as a result of chemical reactions between water and existing rock formations, such as limestone or dolomite. In these cases, the green colouration is often associated with the incorporation of elements like copper, nickel, chromium, or iron. The formation of green calcite may also occur in hydrothermal systems where hot, mineral-rich fluids interact with existing rocks, creating veins and other mineral deposits. This process can result in the growth of green calcite crystals within fractures and cavities in the host rock. Green calcite can be found in various locations around the world. It is particularly abundant in Mexico, where it is found in deposits throughout the country. The state of Veracruz is known for producing high-quality green calcite specimens. Brazil is another significant producer of green calcite. The state of Minas Gerais is known for its diverse range of minerals, including green calcite.

The glass is typically yellow to pale yellow-green in colour, although variations in hue can occur. It often takes the form of teardrop-shaped fragments or larger, irregularly shaped pieces. This tektite is renowned for its transparency and high clarity, resembling a type of gemstone. The origin of this Tektite can be traced back to a meteorite impact that occurred somewhere in the vicinity of the Western Desert of Egypt. The intense heat generated by the impact melted the surrounding sand, forming the glass. Over time, erosion and the shifting sands of the desert have brought the glass fragments to the surface, where they are now found. The exact mechanism of glass formation and the unique characteristics of Libyan Desert Glass continue to be of interest to geologists and researchers. Its distinct nature, scarcity, and intriguing origins make it a subject of fascination for both scientific study and collectors of natural curiosities. If you wish to learn more about its origin, here is a very interesting article.

Orthoceras Fossil

Orthoceras Meanings

Transition, transformation, personal growth Chakras: Base, Solar Plexus Element: Storm, Earth Zodiac Signs: Capricorn, Virgo Number: 8

Ortheceras Crystal Healing Properties

All fossils are thought to support transformation and change. They are believed to assist you in moving from the old to the new and be receptive to the fresh, innovative forces. Fossils may assist you in your quest for transition, transformation and personal growth, helping you to understand the process of change. Also, they may help you instil quality and excellence in your environment.

History and Uses

The Orthoceras Fossil has been found dating back to the Ordovician period (400+ million years ago) and are the earliest recognisable animals. They are ancestors to the modern day squid. Even though they were among the earliest forms of life, this class of nautiloid is still considered to be one of the most intelligent forms of ocean life. The Orthoceras ranged in size, from a few inches in length, to over six feet. They could swim as well as crawl on the ocean floor. By filling the chambers in their shells with air, they could float through the seas propelling themselves by squirting jets of water. As they died, their shells accumulated upon the ocean floor, then covered by sediments they transformed into stone over the ages. Having a long straight shell their fossils have an iridescent gemlike quality when polished. Orthoceras are commonly found in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally having been dug up) are the mineralised or otherwise preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms. In ancient times they were believed to be a gift from the stars and were revered by many cultures. Because of their age, they have been used throughout the centuries as a talisman for protection and long life.

Geological Description

Fossilisation is actually a rare occurrence as organic materials tend to decompose. The fossilisation process requires relatively quick preservation of bodily remains. Normally, the remains need to be covered by sediment or trapped in resin as soon as possible. However, there are exceptions, such as if an organism comes to rest in an anoxic (without oxygen) environment at the bottom of a lake. The oldest known structured fossils date from 3.5 billion years ago. There are several different types of fossils and fossilisation processes, including permineralisation, mold or replacement fossils, compression fossils, resin fossils and trace fossils. Many fossils available on the market are from Morocco, which has vast deposits of Devonian Limestone, which date back three hundred fifty million years ago. Other areas prominent for fossils are China, the USA, Germany, Canada, Russia and Australia.

Affirmation

I will allow myself to open to the process of change and all the possibilities it brings.

First described in 1788, when it was found in Eastern Cape Province, South Africa, it was named after Colonel Hendrik Von Prehn who had commanded the Dutch military forces at the Cape of Good Hope from 1768 to 1780. This stone has been used by South African shamans since ancient times to enhance their powers of prophecy and it is a great ally for readers and healers.

Geological Description

The geological formation of a Prehnite Epidote begins with the complex processes that occur deep within the Earth's crust over millions of years. It starts with the initial formation of igneous rocks, which are created when molten magma cools and solidifies. As the magma cools, it undergoes crystallization, resulting in the formation of various minerals. Over time, geological forces such as tectonic activity and mountain-building processes can cause the uplift and exposure of these igneous rocks to the Earth's surface. This exposure exposes the rocks to the elements, including water, wind, and erosion. As weathering and erosion take place, the surface rocks undergo physical and chemical changes. This can lead to the breakdown and alteration of minerals within the rock, creating new mineral assemblages. In the case of Prehnite  and Epidote , the formation involves the interaction of hydrothermal fluids with the existing rock. Hydrothermal fluids are heated water-rich solutions that circulate through cracks and fractures in the rock. These fluids can carry dissolved elements and minerals, which can precipitate out and form new minerals under specific temperature and pressure conditions. Within this hydrothermal system, Prehnite and Epidote minerals can crystallize and grow. Prehnite forms from the reaction of calcium, aluminum, and silica in the hydrothermal fluids, while Epidote forms from the interaction of calcium, aluminum, iron, and silica. As time passes, the hydrothermal fluids gradually cool and decrease in pressure, allowing the Prehnite and Epidote crystals to grow larger and develop their characteristic shapes and colors. Eventually, geological processes such as uplift, erosion, and the exposure of the mineralized rock to the surface bring these formations within reach. The geological formation of  Prehnite and Epidote exemplifies the intricate interplay between geological processes, mineralization, and the transformative power of time. It is a testament to the Earth's geological history and the remarkable natural formations that can be discovered and appreciated.

Affirmation

I embrace the healing power of Prehnite, inviting tranquility, clarity, and emotional balance into my life.

Rhyolite has been mined since prehistoric times in Pennsylvania in the USA, where fifty small quarry pits have been found.

Geological Description

Rhyolite is an igneous rock that forms through volcanic activity. It is primarily composed of silica-rich minerals, such as quartz and feldspar. The geological formation of rhyolite involves the following processes:
  1. Magma Generation: Rhyolite begins its formation deep within the Earth's crust or upper mantle. The generation of rhyolitic magma is typically associated with subduction zones, where one tectonic plate is forced beneath another. As the subducting plate sinks into the Earth's mantle, the increase in temperature and pressure causes the mantle rocks to melt partially, resulting in the formation of magma.
  2. Magma Ascent: The rhyolitic magma, being less dense than the surrounding rocks, rises towards the Earth's surface. This ascent can occur through various pathways, including fractures, faults, or conduits in the Earth's crust. As the magma moves upward, it may encounter different rock layers and interact with them, influencing its composition and properties.
  3. Eruption: When the rhyolitic magma reaches the surface, it can erupt explosively or effusively. Explosive eruptions occur when the magma contains a high amount of gas, which rapidly expands as it reaches lower pressure near the surface. This results in explosive fragmentation of the magma into fine ash, pumice, and volcanic bombs. Effusive eruptions, on the other hand, involve the relatively slow and steady flow of less-gassy magma onto the surface.
  4. Cooling and Solidification: Once erupted, the rhyolitic magma starts to cool rapidly as it interacts with the atmosphere or surrounding rocks. The cooling process allows the minerals within the magma to crystallize and solidify, forming the characteristic texture and composition of rhyolite. The cooling rate of the magma influences the size of the mineral crystals; faster cooling typically results in smaller crystals, while slower cooling allows for larger crystals to form.
  5. Post-Eruption Alteration: Over time, the surface-exposed rhyolite may undergo weathering and erosion due to the effects of water, wind, and other natural forces. This can lead to the development of unique features, such as pits, ridges, or intricate patterns, within the rhyolite rock.
It's important to note that the geological formation of rhyolite can occur in various volcanic settings, including calderas, stratovolcanoes, and volcanic domes. The specific conditions during magma generation and eruption, as well as the subsequent geological processes, contribute to the diverse textures and appearances seen in rhyolite formations around the world. Rhyolite can be found in Australia, Germany, Spain, Iceland, Ireland, New Zealand, India, China and the USA.

History and Uses

Triangular shark teeth, up to 8-10 cm wide with smooth enamel and sharp edges, are often found with one or more side cuspids. They come from a large prehistoric Lamna Obliqua shark, now known as an Otodus Obliquus or Mackeral shark. The name is derived from the Greek word "lamna" which means fish of prey, and was named after the legendary monster Lamia. These creatures lived in the late Paleocene and Eocene Ages, between 40 and 60 million years ago. Growing to 9 - 10 metres long and weighing 15 tons, they lived across a large area of the oceans, as fossil teeth of these creatures have been found in Africa, Europe, Asia and North America. These prehistoric sharks are closely related to our modern day Mako sharks and were believed to be aggressive and hunt in packs. The largest shark to exist in prehistoric times was the Megladon, meaning "big tooth" which grew to over 18 metres and looked like a stocky Great White shark. In fact, sharks are so perfectly designed that they have changed very little over many millennia. Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally having been dug up) are the mineralised or otherwise preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms. In ancient times they were believed to be a gift from the stars and were revered by many cultures. Because of their age, they have been used throughout the centuries  as a talisman for protection and long life.

Geological Description

Fossilisation is actually a rare occurrence because organic materials tend to decompose and the process requires the relatively quick preservation of bodily remains. Normally, the remains need to be covered by sediment or trapped in resin as soon as possible. However there are exceptions to this, such as if an organism comes to rest in an anoxic (without oxygen) environment at the bottom of a lake. The oldest known structured fossils date from 3.5 billion years ago. There are several different types of fossils and fossilisation processes including permineralization, mold or replacement fossils, compression fossils, resin fossils and trace fossils. Many fossil shark teeth are from Morocco, which has vast deposits of Devonian Limestone which dates back to three hundred and fifty million years ago. As with all sharks, their skeleton was made of cartilage which does not fossilise, so only fossilised vertebrae and teeth survive and have been found in Africa, Europe, Asia and North America.

Affirmation

I will allow myself to open to the process of change and all the possibilities it brings.

History and Uses

Stichtite Serpentine gets its name from the mineral stichtite, which was discovered in 1910 by R.F. Sticht in Tasmania, Australia. Stichtite is named in honour of Robert Carl Sticht, a chemist and manager of the Mt. Lyell Copper Mine in Tasmania. The green serpentine with purple veins or patches was later found to be a combination of serpentine and stichtite, and it became known as Stichtite Serpentine. This Australian stone is sometimes called Tasmanite or Atlantisite. Atlantisite is a trading name coined by Gerald Pauley for the high-grade gem quality form, used in jewellery. This beautiful stone has been found relatively recently and only occurs at Stichtite Hill, a small hilltop in Zeehan, Tasmania, where it is exclusively mined. In contrast, Serpentine is more widely found as a single mineral and is commonly found in South Africa, Canada and Australia.

Geological Description

Stichtite Serpentine forms as a result of the alteration of ultramafic rocks, such as peridotite or serpentinite, in the presence of water and other chemical reactions. Serpentine minerals undergo a process called serpentinization, where the primary minerals are transformed into serpentine minerals, including Stichtite Serpentine. The purple veins or patches in Stichtite Serpentine are due to the presence of stichtite, a purple-coloured mineral rich in chromium and magnesium.

History and Uses

Stromatolites provide some of the most ancient records of life on Earth by fossil remains which date back more than 3.5 billion years. A Stromatolite is a microbially mediated rock so it is both biological and geological. In this specimen you can easily see the passage of time with all the different layers formed by a community of microbes. Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally having been dug up) are the mineralised or otherwise preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms. In ancient times they were believed to be a gift from the stars and were revered by many cultures. Because of their age, they have been used throughout the centuries as a talisman for protection and long life.

Geological Description

Fossilisation is actually a rare occurrence as organic materials tend to decompose. The fossilisation process requires relatively quick preservation of bodily remains. Normally, the remains need to be covered by sediment or trapped in resin as soon as possible. However, there are exceptions, such as if an organism comes to rest in an anoxic (without oxygen) environment at the bottom of a lake. The oldest known structured fossils date from 3.5 billion years ago. There are several different types of fossils and fossilisation processes, including permineralisation, mold or replacement fossils, compression fossils, resin fossils and trace fossils. Many fossils available on the market are from Morocco, which has vast deposits of Devonian Limestone, which date back three hundred fifty million years ago. Other areas prominent for fossils are China, the USA, Germany, Canada, Russia and Australia.

Fossil Crystal Healing Properties

Fossils are a wonderful tool to assist you in moving from the old to the new and to be receptive to the fresh, innovative forces that are available to you. Fossils can assist you in your quest for transition, transformation and personal growth, helping you to understand the process of change. They can help you instil quality and excellence in your environment.

History and Uses

Trilobites were Marine arthropods living in the Early Cambrian to Late Permian Period (570 million - 230 million years ago). Trilobites were hard-shelled, segmented creatures that grew in various sizes from just three millimeters long, to a length of 70 centimeters. They were among the world's first arthropods, a phylum of hard-shelled creatures with multiple body segments and jointed legs (although the legs, antennae and other finer structures of trilobites are only very rarely preserved). Scientists believe they reproduced sexually, moulted and underwent a series of life stages. We know trilobites lived in a variety of marine environments over the course of their existence on our planet. Feeding habits are believed to have been varied including predators, scavengers, filter-feeders and parasites, depending on both the type of the trilobite and their life stage. The majority are believed to have been predators/scavengers due to the presence of a calcified mouthpart called a hypostome. The most common fossil of trilobites is the mineralised dorsal exoskeleton of the creature. This is found in partial form from moulting (shedding the shell as it grows) or in complete form when the animal was buried and died intact. Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally having been dug up) are the mineralised or otherwise preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms. In ancient times they were believed to be a gift from the stars and were revered by many cultures. Because of their age they have been used throughout the centuries as a talisman for protection and long life.

Geological Description

Fossilisation is actually a rare occurrence because organic materials tend to decompose and the process requires the relatively quick preservation of bodily remains. Normally, the remains need to be covered by sediment or trapped in resin as soon as possible. However there are exceptions to this, such as if an organism comes to rest in an anoxic (without oxygen) environment at the bottom of a lake. The oldest known structured fossils date from 3.5 billion years ago. There are several different types of fossils and fossilisation processes including permineralisation, mold or replacement fossils, compression fossils, resin fossils and trace fossils. Many fossils available on the market are from Morocco, which has vast deposits of Devonian Limestone which date back three hundred fifty million years ago. Other areas prominent for fossils are China, the USA, Germany, Canada, Russia and Australia.

Affirmation

I will allow myself to open to the process of change and all the possibilities it brings.

However, we find that either wearing a crystal in the form of jewellery, carrying a piece with you or placing them in the home can help invite positive energies into your vibrational field. Explore our favourite crystal picks to help soothe when stress takes over.

Chains - Silver & Leather

Chains

Silver & Leather

Having multiple types of Chains - Silver & Leather chokers or necklaces can completely transform your pendant collection. Wearing a crystal close to the throat is a different experience to wearing it closer to your Heart... it's a great dynamic to explore. Most of our clients from our Samford, Brisbane Gallery build a collection of several gemstone pendants (which really isn't hard to do!), and complement them over time with several quality chains - (silver or leather options) to provide creative options for expressing their unique Look. Make sure to be pairing your pendants with the correct Chains - Silver & Leather for their weight. For small and delicate pendants, you can pair it with any chain that will fit through the bail. However, for medium and large pendants which hold a bit of weight, it is wise to pair it with a slightly thicker chain and it's worth investing a bit more money in a top quality one if you will be wearing your pendant on a regular basis. We pride ourselves on our high level of quality and the durability of our silver chains. Leather chains are great for everyday wear for smaller and lighter pendants but in the case of both materials, it is best to remove them before immersing yourself in water. To best care for your silver chains, clean them with a silver or metal cleaner or simply polish them with a polishing cloth. We hope you will find your perfect Chain - Silver or Leather to compliment your pendant. If you are after something but can't find it within our collection, don't hesitate to get in touch with us. With over 13 years trading, our stock collection extends far beyond what we have listed on our website!

Gold Gemstone Jewellery

Gold Gemstone Jewellery

Delve into our Gold Gemstone Jewellery collection. Our pieces have been carefully hand-picked for their stunning beauty and high quality crystals. Each of our gold pieces are micron plated between 2-3 microns. We have a select few more affordable pieces that are vermeil instead, which is explicitly noted in the description.
But Wait, What's Micron Plating? Is it Gold?
Micron plating is the perfect balance of luxury & affordability.
 
A high-quality, layer of gold is electroplated onto .925 sterling silver, ensuring long-lasting wear, without breaking the bank. It is far more durable than vermeil or regular plated jewellery. 
 
Not convinced? Before launching this collection, I personally wore one of our gold pendants with the gold link chain every day for four months straight.
I wore it in the shower, to bed, ocean, exercising etc. basically everything I tell our customers in store NOT to do!! I've been thrilled with the way the pendant & chain have held up. The chain has faded in colour ever so slightly but the pendant has retained its full colour!
If worn more conservatively, these pieces will definitely last many years to come.

Meteorite & Tektite Jewellery

Meteorite & Tektite Jewellery

Genuine Meteorite Jewellery with Meteorites & Tektites set into beautiful .925 Sterling Silver Jewellery as an antidote to the everyday Earthbound offerings! This extraordinarily unique jewellery collection is quite literally out of this world. Components of each piece in this collection are from Outer Space... Iron Nickel Meteorites are remnant shards of the magnetic cores of long lost planets. Hurled into oblivion by catastrophic cosmic events. These voyagers travel galactic distances for eons, cooling so slowly that their metals form crystalline striations. These patterns in metal simply doesn't occur Earth. These beautifully textured metals from the core of long lost planets are set in .925 Sterling Silver by enthusiastic designers and offered to you as Jewellery so "Far Out", it's incomprehensible! Moldavite, Libyan Desert Glass and other Tektites are natural glassy composites. They are the result of high energy collisions between a long lost interplanetary Meteorite and our own planet Earth. The silicon rich crust of the Earth vaporises in continent shaping explosions, combining the material of the alien Meteor with our planet falling back to Earth as glassy specimens that are today crafted and cut into wondrous gemstones. These treasures have been revered for centuries as objects of wonder and power. They have been set into the crowns of European royalty, prized as potent objects of power, and even crafted into ceremonial daggers for sacrifice...Cosmic, huh? Now becoming very rare as the current planetary interest in Crystals and Meteorites rises. Ready for some Energetic Shifts to your worldly reality... Check out these pieces of Meteorite & Tektite Jewellery.

Necklaces & Pendants

Necklaces and Pendants

If there is one style of Crystal Jewellery that appeals to All, it is our collection of Sterling Silver Gemstone Pendants & Necklaces. Most clients begin with a special Pendant and one of our Silver Chains that appeals to them. Shortly after, we see them again, and they begin to build a collection of Pendants and Chains to wear casually, adding a sparkle to Jeans and a T-shirt, or to light up a stunning designer evening dress. This makes for a beautiful set of crystal pendant necklaces. People often wear healing crystal pendants for their various believed properties, each specific to different crystals. Earrings and Rings generally follow in the collection, and a classic Bracelet or two completes the Look. Surprisingly, all this can be achieved for the price of a single, simple 18k Gold and Diamond pendant... Explore what $100-$500 can achieve, you may be surprised! Incredibly versatile, our collection of Pendants should leave you with a want to at least own and enjoy a few pieces... We network with Australian designers and travel through Asia, The Americas, and Europe to source our Gemstone Necklaces and are confident that each piece is truly representative of the nature of the Stone. Each have their own beauty. Each are hand selected by us. Most importantly, it's about the Crystal, then the design and the quality of the setting. Simply beautiful Talismans, one of a kind. Which one is yours?

Rings

Handmade Gemstone and Crystal Rings

One of the joys of wearing Crystal Rings is the ability to really explore your Stone as it is easily visible to you. It makes for a great distraction to stare at something truly beautiful and captivating! Pendants and earrings are a pleasure to wear but often you don't see them! Crystals worn on your hands invite your gaze and your touch. It's a great way to bond with and experiment with these special stones (and of course, they can be flaunted!!). Some rings in our collection are intentionally simple by design. High quality stones set in a classic style design. Elegant everyday rings that easily become favourites. Others follow the trend of larger statement pieces. Generous slices of Gemstones, or complete crystals set in Sterling Silver that simply must be noticed! Take a risk and flaunt a unique statement crystal ring. They often invite comment, and when teamed up with a matching Pendant or Earrings create a powerful expression that is totally of your design. Please visit our Guide to discovering your Ring Size. Most rings can be re-sized a size or two for a nominal cost of around $30 AUD with your local manufacturing jeweller. This is dependant on the style, setting and jeweller's costs. Small plastic sleeves can also be purchased to take up a half to full size, which are easily removed, and unnoticeable when the ring is worn. Best, however, to know your correct size and buy a ring that is already a close fit for you. Consider also the notion of wearing a ring on a finger that may be unfamiliar to you. Try something new! If you need to be sure of your ring size, please drop into our Gallery if in Brisbane where we can measure you with calibrated bands and record your sizes for you.

Smudge Sticks

Smudge Stick

These beautiful Smudge Sticks are locally grown and made just around the corner from our Samford Crystal Shop. We are lucky enough to work with Draper Farm and supply their amazing products. Their Sage Smudge Sticks are grown using organic practices. They are then picked, dried and bundled with much love and care just for you. Our smudge sticks are tightly bundled to allow a slow and consistent burn, as well as making them much easier to stub out. In addition, these smudge sticks are generous in size to allow multiple uses. You can use your smudge stick to cleanse your house, your work space, your crystal and yourself.

What is Smudging?

Smudging has been used by many cultures across the world to clear away negative energies. It involves the burning of sacred herbs to produce smoke. This smoke is used to cleanse the energy of your home, workplace, crystals or even your body.

How to Use a Smudge Stick

Light the end of the smudge stick, so its smouldering. Traditionally, the cleansing smoke was fanned by a feather, but you can simply use your hand. If you want to produce more smoke, gently blow on the smouldering end. Positive intent: maintain positive thoughts as you smudge. A simple smudging prayer or affirmation you could use is “I love this space.” You don’t need a lot of smoke, but you want a little bit of smoke to reach all areas of your home. Walk into the corners of each room. Waft the smoke behind doors, under beds and around other furniture. Stub out your smudge stick in sand or a heat resistant container. Ensure you thoroughly extinguish your bundle. The same practice is often transferred to crystals. This is thought to help clear energy build up and stagnation in your pieces. Avoid use when pregnant.
