Lemurian

Lemurian quartz is a special variety of clear quartz, which is a silicon dioxide mineral. These crystals are found in either Colombia or the Diamantina region of Brazil. They exhibit ladder-like horizontal striations and grooves on the sides of the crystal body, with very clear interiors. Lemurian quartz is said to connect to the ancient civilization of Lemuria, where people used crystals to focus consciousness for activities like healing and clairvoyance. These crystals are programmed with the consciousness of ancient Lemuria, which some have compared the biblical Garden of Eden. Holding, carrying, or wearing Lemurian quartz stimulates these latent human abilities, like clairvoyance and telepathy, and helps us to access and develop them once again. Lemurian quartz is very soothing and calming to our consciousness, and it also supports the brain and central nervous system. It is also an excellent tool for meditation, allowing one to enter a meditative state quickly and deeply. 

As we, humanity, enter into the Great Awakening and the next stage of our human evolution, it is time for us to reclaim these lost gifts and abilities. For too long, we have been dominated by the mind, and forgotten the Truth of the Heart. Lemurian quartz is here to help us through this time of transition, as we ascend to once again become the beautiful beings of love and light that we were always meant to be.

Ethiopian opal

Ethiopian opal is a hydrated amorphous form of silica. They have body colors that often range from yellow to orange to red, but can also be white or clear. Ethiopian opals are considered "precious" opals, meaning that they display a bright play-of-color or iridescence, as opposed to common opal which does not. It is important to note that Ethiopian opals are "hydrophane," meaning that they easily absorb water, so it is best to avoid getting your opal wet. Ethiopian opals powerfully stimulate the auric field and energize all chakras. Like fire opals, which have a similar yellow/orange/red body color, they also resonate especially strongly with the first three chakras. Because of this, Ethiopian opals are wonderful for helping us to awaken our passion and creativity. For anyone who would like to be more confident, outgoing, and optimistic, Ethiopian opals make great companions to help stimulate these attributes. They ease fears, inhibitions, and self-consciousness, offering us greater self expression and enjoyment of the pleasures of life.

Shiva Lingam

Shiva Lingams are stones of crypto-crystalline quartz containing many mineral impurities. They come from the Narmada River in Western India, where they are gathered by villagers and polished into their traditional elliptical egg shape. These stones are generally grey or tan with markings of brownish red patterns and designs. The shape of the stone is a representation of the male aspect of creation, and more specifically symbolizes the phallus of the Hindu god Shiva. The red/brown markings on the stone symbolize the female aspect of creation. Shiva lingam stones embody the unification of the Divine Feminine and Masculine energies, and symbolize the primeval energy of the Creator. This unification of the sacred masculine and feminine makes Shiva Lingam an excellent stone for the activation of Kundalini energy, which rises up from the base of the spine, activating the chakras and bringing enlightenment. This is a stone of activation, unification, and transformation, encouraging us to perceive the ultimate unity and Oneness of all things within creation.

Aventurine

Click here to see our Aventurine

Aventurine is a member of the quartz family. It is translucent with platy mineral inclusions, which create a shimmering sparkling effect. Green aventurine is the most common, but it is also found in shades of blue and red/brown as well. The green variety contains particles of fuchsite suspended within the quartz matrix. Red aventurine is due to hematite inclusions, and blue aventurine contains inclusions of copper silicates. Aventurine derives its name from the Italian “a ventura” meaning “by chance.” This alludes to the discovery of “avventurino” or goldstone, a man made glass with flecks of copper which give it a shimmering effect similar to aventurine. It is quite appropriate that this stone was named after the idea of chance or luck, as aventurine is one of the luckiest stones! Useful in situations where one cannot control the outcome, aventurine draws luck, opportunity, and abundance to its bearer. This is a stone of good humor, bringing with it feelings of hope, upliftment, optimism, and joy. Being a heart chakra stone, aventurine acts as an emotional anchor, keeping one grounded and centered in the heart even through the most challenging and stressful of circumstances. This makes it a wonderful ally and tool for those who are overly “heady” or intellectual, assisting them in getting out of their head and back into their heart! Green aventurine combines both water and earth element energies, allowing one to remain stable, centered, and grounded through times of change and upheaval.

Muonionalusta Meteorite

Muonionalusta Meteorite is a Nickel-Iron alloy meteorite discovered in northern Scandinavia in 1906. These Nickel-Iron Meteorites are one of the only meteorites that display the curious feature of the Widmanstatten pattern, which is composed of lamellae (bands) of Kamacite & Taenite, two iron-nickel minerals with very different iron-nickel ratios. This pattern is formed when the material is cooling through the “dark, red, hot” temperature range. In order to form the macroscopic lamellae, the material needs to have a cooling rate in the range of 100-6600 degrees Celsius per MILLION years. In comparison the earth’s own core is cooling at the rate of -100 degrees Celsius per BILLION years! Muonionalusta Meteorite, named after the nearby place it impacted, Muonionalusta on the Muonio River. Studies have shown it to be the oldest discovered meteorite, impacting Earth during the Quaternary Period, about 1 million years ago. But the technical age of this meteorite was found through radiological dating, which through cosmic ray exposure data tell us about how the body broke apart approximately 400 million years ago. Yep, it’s really old. The ancient Chinese considered meteorites to be sacred stones, and the Tibetans knew them as vajra stones, associated with the fiery power of creation. Thousands of meteors collide with the Earth every day, but only a tiny fraction reach the ground without completely burning up. A few more fun facts about Munionalusta Meteorite. Excalibur, the fabled sword of King Arthur, was said to have been made from a Nickel-Iron Meteorite. These meteorites are composed of the same materials that forms the Earth’s core, and they may come from the cores of destroyed planets or the planet-forming bodies called planetesimals, so there’s a possibility that you could own a fragment of a planetary core! Metaphysically, Nickel-Iron Meteorites vibrate with an almost electrical intensity. They have the capacity to activate the kundalini channel along the spine, bringing the usually dormant spiritual fire which exists in all human beings into full force.

Pyrite

Pyrite is an iron sulfide mineral. It forms at both high and low temperatures in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks worldwide, making it the most common of the sulfide minerals. The brassy yellow color of pyrite has earned it the nickname “fool’s gold.” However, the name pyrite is actually derived from the Greek root word “pyr” meaning “fire,” alluding to the fact that sparks can be created by striking two pieces of the mineral together. The crystal pattern of pyrite is often cubic, although it has many other formations, including pyritohedral, octahedral, massive, granular, and botyoidal. Pyrite resonates with the solar plexus chakra, helping to energize that chakra, and giving a burst of vitality to the physical body and the energy fields. It is a stone of willpower and determination, increasing confidence and aiding one in taking assertive action. As such, pyrite is an excellent stone for manifesting ideas into physical reality. This stone has a masculine energy to it, which increases ambition, commitment, and confidence in taking positive action, which is very helpful in overcoming any negative habits that might be holding one back. For men, it enhances confidence in their masculinity, and can even be used to support healthy expression of male eroticism and to treat sexual dysfunction. Pyrite contains both Earth and Fire element energies, aiding one to connect with the Earth and channel that energy into the physical body, giving an instant rebalancing to the subtle bodies and a refreshing burst of energy to the physical body. It also supports the blood and increases blood oxygenation levels. Overall, pyrite makes an excellent tool for anyone wishing to increase their confidence, vitality, and ability to manifest their dreams into reality.

Canyon Diablo Meteorite

The Canyon Diablo Meteorite is classified as a Coarse Octahedrite Iron Meteorite, named after the nearby Canyon Diablo which lies three to four miles west of the crater. This meteorite is estimated to have impacted approximately 50,000 years ago, colliding with the Earth at 50 times the speed of sound, and the total weight attributed to the meteorite was put at 30 tons! In 6 seconds, the Canyon Diablo Meteorite excavated 175 million tons of limestone and sandstone, sprayed molten rocks upward and tossed the meteorite several miles away. Fragments have been collected and used by prehistoric Native Americans and the biggest single fragment is the Holsinger Meteorite with a mass of 639 kg. The typical samples of the Canyon Diablo Meteorite are represented by coarse octahedrite matter with Kamacite band widths of 1.88 – 2.2 mm. In many meteorite fragments, especially ones found on the crater rim, the Widmanstatten Pattern had been destroyed as a result of the explosion that occurred when the meteorite hit the Earth. The shock of the meteorite impact also formed small diamonds in the meteorite. According to the first geological report on the gigantic northern Arizona crater, in 1891, which was not on the crater itself but on the tiny diamonds found in the nearby meteorites. The Diamonds in the Canyon Diablo Meteorite are unevenly distributed and are found inside the highly recrystallized meteor fragments at the rim of the crater. From evidence of shock recrystallization of the meteorite matter it would seem that the diamond containing fragments of the Canyon Diablo Meteorite had to undergo shock pressure from 400 kbar to 1mgbar at impact, at these pressures the diamonds crystallize. Note the captivating reddish-bronze natural desert patina caused by different degrees of oxidation during terrestrial weather and striking abstract form of this rare space rock.

Chrysanthemum stone

Chrysanthemum stone is named for its lovely white-gray flower pattern which resembles a chrysanthemum flower. Also called the "flower stone," this lovely mineral consists of a black gypsum clay, dolomite, and limestone, with internal crystals composed of celestite, calcite, feldspar, or andalusite. Chrysanthemum stone was formed approximately 270 million years ago at the bottom of ancient oceans. High temperatures and intense pressure caused compression of rich organic layers of mud. As minerals such as calcium carbonate (calcite) and strontium sulphate (celestite) were slowly deposited and built up in the layers of mud, the extreme pressures at that depth of the ocean forced the crystals to grow outward in flat radial formations, and this is what creates the beautiful flowerlike appearance of the stone. Energetically, chrysanthemum stone can be used to awaken dormant abilities, passions, and talents. It is a stone that magnetically attracts good luck and opens the way for new opportunities in life, especially when one is following their souls highest purpose. For those who feel stuck, lost, or are unsure of their soul's purpose or direction in life, chrysanthemum stone makes a powerful tool and ally to draw inspiration and synchronistic opportunities, helping to find and follow the path of their soul's greatest glory, and assisting and uplifting them to truly blossom and manifest their dreams.


"When we embark on the road of our soul's longing, the very act of turning in that direction and moving forward can give the universe the cue it needs to help us." - Robert Simmons

Spirit Quartz

Spirit quartz is an unusual variety of quartz which is found only in South Africa. It features one main central crystal point with many small terminated points growing along the body of the main crystal. Because of its appearance, it is also sometimes called pineapple quartz or cactus quartz. Although this quartz formation is most commonly found as amethyst exhibiting varying shades of lavender/purple, other varieties do exist, including citrine, white, and smokey spirit quartz. One of the most exciting properties of this crystal is its ability to connect the everyday conscious awareness with the Higher Self (the greater overall soul, which contains all the memories of all the lives and experiences that soul has ever had). The Higher Self is the repository of all the divine knowledge and wisdom of the soul. By strengthening this connection of the conscious mind to the Higher Self, spirit quartz speeds up our evolution and allows the Higher Self to work through us more fully. The amethyst variety of spirit quartz is particularly useful for understanding and verbally expressing the divine wisdom of the Higher Self. It opens the crown chakra, clears negative attachments and energies, repairs the etheric body, and cleanses the overall auric field. Citrine spirit quartz activates and unblocks the solar plexus chakra, elevating one to act directly from the will of the Higher Self. And white spirit quartz is the most beneficial for the physical body, clearing and cleansing it to become the most optimal vehicle and vessel of the Higher Self.

hematite from Wickenburg. Chrysocolla is a secondary copper mineral,

forming in the surrounding matrix of copper. A very gentle stone, its

energy works in a passive, harmonious way. It can help soothe nervous

tension, ease fear, anxiety, and guilt. It is also used to communicate with

the spiritual feminine forces of the Earth.



MALACHITE - CONGO

“Gem with the Mirror into the Soul”

Malachite is usually found in opaque green masses, its color derived

from copper, as a secondary mineral. Found in the vast rainforests of the

Congo in Africa; the moisture allows copper to oxidize most easily into

the surrounding stone. Chatoyant (fibirous) crystals are too small for

faceting, but the light bending quality leaves one in awe. The massive

material can be carved or polished in many ways to reveal the alternating

bands of light & dark green. In the past, malachite was worn to ward off

danger & illness. Exhibition of botryoidal “eyes” formation, the layers

represent an introspective stone.

Gem & Crystal Singing Bowls

The use of sound healing therapy is not just a new age phenomenon, but extends back thousands of years into the ancient times where many kinds of special instruments were used to remedy illnesses and revive the spirit.

Click Here to see our Tutorial on Singing Bowls

Click Here to see Singing Bowls


Scientific studies show that sound can produce changes in the autonomic, immune, endocrine, and neuroleptic systems. Every atom, molecule, cell, gland, and organ of the human body absorbs and emits sound. The entire body, as well as our brain waves in a relaxed state, vibrate at a fundamental frequency of about 8 cycles per second. Literally entraining and attuning us to the basic electromagnetic field of the earth itself! Each bowl is tested with digital technology to identify its sound.


THE SOUND VIBRATION FROM THESE INSTRUMENTS HELPS TO MOVE YOU FROM WHAT ARE KNOWN AS “BETA BRAIN  PATTERNS”, OR THOSE  WITH CONCENTRATION, ANXIETY, AND FIGHT OR FLIGHT REFLEXES TO BRAIN WAVES THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH RELAXATION {ALPHA}, MEDITATION {THETA}, 

AND TRANCE LIKE STATES {DELTA}.


You can access more reviving, rejuvenating, and serene stages of mind simply by listening to, or learning to play these musical instruments. 


Which in turn promotes:

  • Mental and Emotional Balance
  • Reduce Stress and Anxiety
  • Improve Concentration and Memory
  • Improve Sleep
  • Enhance Immunity
  • Spark Creativity

Druze/ Druzy Heart Collection

Druze/ Druzy

There is a beautiful color combination in this iridescent heart shaped druze Agate. This druze Agate has a grey colored druze center with a small white colored druze ball in the upper center of the druze pocket. Druze is a formation of tiny crystals on the surface, or in the center of a larger crystal. Surrounding this druze pocket is a blue/grey band of Agate with an iridescent coating. Agate Geodes are powerful crystals for good luck, protection and spiritual growth. The iridescence you see is a process of metal vapor deposition inside a vacuum chamber. The type of metals range from titanium to silicone oxide. The colors are produced by heating the solid metal in an arc and turning it into vapor, where it physically bonds to the crystal surface. The crystals themselves are real and the rainbow color on the outside is the metal. Even though these crystals are enhanced with metal, they are still all comprised of components from Mother Earth.

Golden Rutile Quartz

RUTILE QUARTZ

“Gem of Energy Movement”

The Golden Rutile Quartz

aka. Venus-hair stone, rutile quartz is a

crystalline form of silica with inclusions of the mineral ‘rutile’, which

forms as clusters of needles. Minerals may vary from titanium to

tourmaline. If these two minerals are forming at the same time, the

titanium or mineral needles will get trapped inside the transparent

quartz. This produces the hair-like gold and silver color threads that

reflect light inside of the quartz. Excellent in assisting in the decision

making process, it is very helpful in uncovering the causes of mental

issues and hang-up.

Colorful Fluorite

FLUORITE

“Gem of Mental Clarity ”

Natural Fluorite also known as Fluorspar, fluorite is a mineral form of

calcium fluoride. It crystallizes in isometric cubic habit, and is a colorful

mineral both in visible and ultraviolet light. Fluorescence involves the

elevation of electron energy levels by quanta of ultraviolet light, followed

by the progressive falling back of the electrons into their previous energy

state, releasing quanta of visible light in the process. Fluorite heightens

mental abilities, assisting in rapid organization and the processing of

information, and can also bring mental clarity and stability.

Steel Tongue Drums

Beta & Theta Brain Patterns

These instruments help move you from Beta brain waves (anxiety & fight or flight reflexes) to Alpha, Theta, and Delta brainwaves that are associated with relaxation & meditation. Steel tongue drums nourish the forebrain, which governs 40% of our problem-solving and decision-making skills. 


When we are in Beta, we lose blood flow to the forebrain, challenging the decision-making process.  Steel tongue drums also assist with balancing the hemispheres of the brain. The left hemisphere or the analytical side, and the right hemisphere our intuition.


How it works:

Sound healing is a practice used by cultures such as the ancient Egyptians, Chinese, Native Americans, and even the United States military. It is used to treat mental illness, restore balance and happiness, and achieve peak performance. 


It is claimed that sound healing can treat depression, developmental disorders, anxiety, PTSD, and help manage physical and mental pain. For healthy individuals, managing one’s sound environment can be a way to recover from daily stress and enhance productivity, communication, and a feeling of well-being.


Our physical and emotional — perhaps even spiritual — states can be conceived of as a particular blend of frequencies, from our heartbeats and blood pressure, to the pace of our thoughts and movement. Due to a negative feedback loop, the human body and mind can sometimes remain in a self reinforcing state of stress or imbalance. The common admonition to simply snap out of it is not usually helpful because of this loop. 


The human body and mind are exquisitely attuned to the environment, so a more helpful approach is to adjust the environment to help us feel the way we want. The basic principle of sound healing is to introduce a particular frequency and rhythm that we will adapt our internal frequencies to, thus helping us overcome internal conflicts, blockages, and illness. This can be a sound or vibrations directly introduced into the body via direct contact.

Arizona Petrified Wood

AZ PETRIFIED WOOD

“Rooted in the Spiritual Body Expressing in the Physical”

Az Petrified Wood:

One of the most well-known fossils, petrified wood is

a fascinating example of mineral replacement. Thick layers of sediments

buried the wood from primeval forests. Over eons of time, tiny crystals of

silica, in the form of agate, replaced each wood fiber. Often, minerals like

iron oxide color the agate, producing a rainbow of hues such as this

petrified wood found near Holbrook, AZ. Petrified Wood is the official

State Fossil of Arizona. It is dated at least 180,000,000 years old. Petrified

wood helps us be patient with life, allowing it to evolve with perfection.

Works with the root & third eye chakras to bring healing to physical and

emotional issue.

Labradorite Phenomena

The optical phenomena of Labradorite:

Some of the many questions I often get are: “what creates labradorite’s iridescence?” How does labradorite have that brilliant shift?” or “How is the reflection created?”.

All being valid questions due to the rarity and distinct beauty of labradorite’s elegant blue-green iridescent shifts! Labradorite’s fascinating schiller or metallic luster  is believed to be due to the presence of different compositions as well as minute inclusions of limenite, rutile, and possible magnetite, which cause the diffraction of light. According to a Canadian Eskimo legend, the northern lights were once trapped in the rocks along the coast of Labrador, and then a wandering Eskimo warrior found them and freed most of the lights with a mighty blow of his spear. Some of the lights were still caught within the stone, however, and thus we have the beautiful mineral known as labradorite.

Meteorite

Meteorites are solid pieces of debris that originate from outer space and survive passing through the atmosphere of a planet or moon in order to reach the surface. Traditionally, meteorites are divided into three major categories or types: stony (containing rock-forming silicate minerals), iron (containing nearly solid nickel-iron metal), and stony-iron (around 50% rock and 50% iron-nickel). Energetically, meteorites are said to stimulate the earth star, root, solar plexus, third eye, crown, and soul star chakras, as well as to balance and align the energetic fields of the body. Meteorites have a healing effect on the physical body; they can increase one's overall strength and stamina, and strengthen the blood and circulatory system as well. Said to increase self-confidence and motivation, these celestial crystals are wonderful tools for stimulating inner vision and spiritual awakening, as well as helping one attune to interdimensional and extraterrestrial communication. Meteorites are a beautiful gift from the heavens - able to both expand human consciousness and to provide a tangible connection to the mysterious energies of other worlds.

Orthoceras

The Orthoceras Fossil

The Orthoceras was an ancient mollusk that lived more than 400 million years ago. The name means straight horn, referring to its characteristic long, straight, conical shell. The Orthoceras shell is made up of two main segments: the siphuncle & the septa. The siphuncle is the line running down the center from head to tail. The septa are the short-curved lines that run across or side to side. The differences in composition of these shell parts allowed for differences in fossilization so the parts to be seen.  These straight shelled nautiloids ranged in size from less than a centimeter to more than 14 feet! The preserved shell is all that remains of this ancestor of our modern-day squid.

Azurite

Azurite is a stunning deep blue copper mineral which is created through the weathering of copper ore deposits. It is one of two basic copper carbonate minerals, the second of which is malachite. These two minerals form under similar conditions and are often found inter-grown with one another. 

Every color has a vibrational frequency, and the rich deep dark blue color of azurite vibrates to the exact frequency of the third eye chakra, making it an ideal tool to cleanse, stimulate, and open that energy center. This beautiful blue crystal was revered by many ancient cultures. The ancient Chinese, for example, called it the "stone of heaven" as they believed it to open celestial gateways. Native Americans used it to contact spirit guides, to feel their presence, and to receive messages from them. In current times, azurite is coveted as a valuable tool in enhancing inner vision, creativity, and in the development of psychic powers. It also strengthens the astral and etheric bodies, and brings clarity and a sense of calm peacefulness to the mind. A stone of truth and discernment, azurite is a powerful aid for increasing mental clarity and insight, and illuminating truth.
