Called the Stone of Courage and the Stone of Truth, Amazonite empowers one to search the self and discover one’s own truths and integrity, and to move beyond fear of judgment or confrontation with others to live in alignment with those beliefs and values. It provides the freedom to express one’s thoughts and feelings, and to set strong and clear boundaries, both internally as self-discipline, and externally on what one is willing to experience or in defining personal space. Amazonite assists in communicating one’s true thoughts and feelings without over-emotionalism. It also enables one to see a problem from another’s point of view in order to affect peace, or to see both sides of an issue objectively to resolve one’s own inner conflicts. As a support stone, Amazonite aids in overcoming loneliness, and has been credited with making married life happier. Amazonite is a good luck stone for games of chance, competitions and luck in any financial venture.
What is Vermeil? Vermeil is produced by coating sterling silver with carat gold. Gold is usually 18k or pure 24k gold. To be considered vermeil, the gold must be at least 10k and have a minimum gold thickness of 2.5 microns on all surfaces. A Vermeil piece of jewellery is made entirely of precious metals which gives the piece a central value. Vermeil jewellery should maintain the look of yellow gold for many years.
What is Gold Filled? The term “gold filled” means that a thick layer of gold is bonded to a base of other alloys such as rhodium, brass or sterling silver through heat and high pressure. The gold layer on gold filled is approximately 100 times thicker than gold plated. Gold filled items are regulated and the quantity of gold must be at least 1/20th by weight of the total product which is 5% the gold content and 95% other metals. Gold filled jewellery is an economical alternative to solid gold! It is safe for most people with sensitive skin and is hard wearing.
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.
