Blue Chalcedony is a form of Quartz that is micro-crystalline and compact. It has a vitreous to waxy luster that has a beautiful and inviting translucence. Chalcedony is known as the Speaker’s Stone, the stone of one who must measure his words. It encourages reflection and meditation, its gentle radiance preparing us for action but helping to hold back words we might regret. Considered a nurturing stone, Chalcedony absorbs negative energy and dissipates it before it can be passed on.
Lapis Lazuli is one of the most sought after stones in use since man’s history began. Its deep, celestial blue remains the symbol of royalty and honour, gods and power, spirit and vision. It is a universal symbol of wisdom and truth. A stone of truth, Lapis Lazuli encourages honesty of the spirit, and in the spoken and written word. Wear it for all forms of deep communication. It is also a stone of friendship and brings harmony in relationships. Lapis Lazuli is a useful stone to wear as it is said to relieve anger and negative thoughts, as well as easing frustrations causing the anger.
Sterling Silver is 92.5% pure silver with some base metal, usually copper, added for strength. As the purity of the silver decreases, the issue of tarnishing increases because other metals in the alloy may react over time with oxygen in the air. To help keep its shine, keep it in an airtight plastic bag when you are not wearing it. To clean it gently swipe it across with a polishing cloth.
Semi-precious stones and crystals have been an integral part of the human history, representing wealth and power as well as being ascribed qualities both genuine and superstitious.
