Just saying...

So.. what exactly is druzy? November 07 2014, 0 Comments

Scientifically speaking, druzy is the word used to describe the formation of the quartz crystals that have formed on another rock or mineral. The process begins when ground water containing silica enters a porous area of a rock which then quickly cools causing the crystals to form on the surfaces or cavities of the rock. Often times, the crystals will form on top of other minerals. A common example of druzy formation is seen in geodes. Not always, but sometimes you will crack one open and the entire inside has the texture of sparkly sugar crystals!

Druzy quartz holds many of the same properties as quartz itself but because it forms in clusters its metaphysical properties can affect more than one person and include a group of people. Love and joy are enhanced by this snowy like formation. It can bring harmony to a group generating calm environments. Druzy dispels negative energy and can soothe a stressed mind making room for positive thoughts and energy to take over. Aura out of whack? Just wear or hold a piece of this beautiful group of quartz and it can help stabilize it.

This is one of our favorite additions to our jewelry collection. Its fun, glittery and such a beautiful item to accessorize with! Take a peek at our druzy rings and necklaces if you havent yet!

What can turquoise do for you? November 04 2014, 0 Comments

Turquoise is a very beautiful gemstone and has been known and used for centuries for its psychic protection and its chakra purification capabilities all while keeping you grounded and at peace. In ancient times Shaman thought so highly of this mineral that they made protective amulets out of it to ward off evil and negative entities.

This popular gemstone helps communicate the truth, wisdom and honesty of even the shyest person. It can help a person speak his or her mind with validity. This is due to the balancing of the throat chakra. Turquoise is also a purification stone that can dispel negative energy which is wonderful for those with depression due to its ability to instill inner calm and stabilize mood swings.

Turquoise has a profound effect on the third eye chakra as well. It has the ability to balance and align the third eye, protecting it from negative psychic attacks and energy. During meditation, this gemstone can quicken ones journey into a deep meditative state. Although it is a highly spiritual stone, you will stay grounded and remain peaceful.

Depending on the color of the stone, turquoise can have varying metaphysical properties and attributes. Take a look at one of our newest turquoise creations here:

Mercury in Retrograde...you feeling the effects? October 31 2013, 0 Comments

From October 3 – October 25th Mercury is in retrograde and our lives can feel a little crazy with all kinds of communication problems. I find myself blaming a lot of my challenges during this time on Mercury in retrograde. Mercury rules the mind, mental clarity, talking, self-expression and overall communication. During the Retrograde period, Mercury, which rules a person's intellectual, communication and mental processes - are less acute. They become dull, careless, mistake-prone and forgetful. The Mercury Retrograde cycle is a good time for introspection and to become more aware of your own patterns.

During this time I challenge you to take notice of communication problems or equipment failure happens, seriously it happens more often than you can believe during this period. Make sure as you’re taking notice that you notice: the mistakes that happened because you weren’t clear when communicating, the arguments that happened from simple misunderstandings, the plans that were cancelled at the last minute and any delays you experienced, as well as anything lost during this time. If you add up all these incidents on October 26, you may actually be able to make better sense of why during this time life has been so crazy. Soon you'll be a believer of the effects of Mercury in retrograde.

When Mercury is in retrograde, communication skills are not functioning well; in fact they seem to mal-function. When this happens communications of all types go crazy! Normal communication is filled with misinformation and important data is missing or misunderstood. The passage of information from one person to the other seems to be confusing in some way. 

The result is that any action one takes or decision one makes during the retrograde don't have the intended result. In fact, they often fail or seem sabotaged. As a result they will have to be re-done or restructured in some way when the Retrograde period ends and Mercury goes direct.

From now until October 25th, we are offering both Tiger Eye and Rose quartz at over a 30% savings to get you through this time.  The stone Tiger Eye is a known protector of negative energy. The wearer can deflect any negativity coming their way and just feel a sense of strength and courage while wearing this stone.  We also have decided to discount the rose quartz bracelet as well that helps to heal the heart from any heaviness, allowing the wearer to feel loved and to give love.  Both these bracelets are selling for $30 for a limited time, once Mercury goes direct (October 26), the sale is over.   Hang in there, and know this time too shall pass. :)

 

Much love,

Paulette & Monique
