History: The haunting legend about the Apache Tear is about the Pinal Apaches, who had made several raids on a settlement in Arizona. The military and some volunteers trailed the tracks of the stolen cattle and waited for dawn to attack the Apaches. The Apaches, confident in the safety of their location, were completely surprised and out-numbered in the attack. Nearly 50 of the band of 75 Apaches were killed in the first volley of shots. The rest of the tribe retreated to the cliff's edge and chose death by leaping over the edge rather than die at the hands of the white men. For years afterward those who ventured up the treacherous face of Big Pacacho in Arizona found skeletons, or could see the bleached bones wedged in the crevices of the side of the cliff.

The Apache Women and the lovers of those who had died gathered a short distance from the base of the cliff where the sands were white, and for a moon they wept for their dead. They mourned greatly, for they realized that not only had their 75 brave Apache warriors died, but with them had died the great fighting spirit of the Pinal Apaches.

Their sadness was so great, and their burden of sorrow so sincere that the Great Father imbedded into black stones the tears of the Apache Women who mourned their dead. These black obsidian stones, when held to the light, reveal the translucent tear of the Apache.

History: Atlantisite is a relatively new discovery in the gem and mineral world. It is a unique combination of colors. It includes the yellow-green matrix that holds a purple and green combination of stichtite, only occurring in "Stichtite Hill" a small hilltop in Zeehan, Tasmania, where it is mined exclusively. Tasmanite and Atlantisite are two different types of gem. The tradename Atlantisite was coined by Gerald Pauley and is the registered tradename for the variety of gem which comes from the specific mine in Tasmania. Atlantisite, is not called Tasmanite. Tasmanite comes from a different mine and is of inferior quality to the genuine Atlantisite. Atlantisite is the high grade gem material containing stichtite in serpentine but in the gemstone also has chromite and magnetite. Atlantisite is a stable variety of the gem and is popular in the jewellery industry. Gerald's company distributes the gem for the miners. The lost city of Atlantis has intriqued the imagination for hundreds of years. The legend of Atlantis has been traced back to Plato, who was the first to write about the lost city. Plato would refer to the story of Atlantis as a moral teaching trying to warn the Greek people not to go the way of materialism, as it could have devastating consequences. The story of Atlantis has taken sholars, scientists, religious teachers and the curious on journeys all over the world to locate its wherabouts. From Bimini and the Azores, to the Sahara, Thera and Crete, the speculation of the world's greatest super civilization has remained elusive. Atlantis could well have begun in the teaming underwater world off the coastline of Tasmania and its many islands. Off the Tasman Peninsula lies the massive entrance of Cathedral Cave. Off the east coast of Tasmania, at Bicheno, lies odd-shaped openings that are clustered around large granite boulders that lean against other as though to signify a place with a past. Could this be the lost city of Atlantis? Until we know for sure, we can enjoy the healing powers left behind in Atlantisite, which is considered by many to bring the energies of ancient civilizations.

Boji Stones:

Properties: are actually a trademark name for iron-magnetite concretions also called Marcasite nodules. These are one of the most grounding stones with electromagnetic properties. They are most famous for their true yin and yang energies. The rougher "male" stones have protrusions (usually of pyrite) and "female" stones are smooth and unassuming. These stones have + and - charge. These "living stones" are used to balance the body's energy field. Many people have found they reduce pain by holding one stone in each hand. It has been shown over and over that Marcasite nodules tend to be a catalyst for stabilizing the equilibrium process. When these stones are held near an area of imbalance, it would tangibly stimulate the associated meridians, nadis or centers of pranic energy, continuing until a state of equilibrium had been reached through repeated applications. In addition, it has been observed that the Boji stones definitely generate a grounding energy. These stones have shown therefore, to stimulate all the Chakra centers and in turn stimulate the entire Auric field. Marcasite stones thrive in the company of other precious gems, stones and crystals. Therefore, these "living stones" need love and attention. Stones left in a drawer or neglected for long periods have been reduced to dust.

Folk Remedies: These "containers of energies" are held together by the power within. If the energy is depleted or lost, the stone changes molecular structure from 7.4 hardness to dust. Geologists find this to be one of the most unusual aspects of this stone. One geologist stated "the Bojis reminded him of the human body that is held together by a life energy. When that energy leaves, the stone decays and chemical and mineral elements turn to dust." Used most often for relieving pain, by holding one in each hand for 10 minutes or more. Helps to remove emotional blockage that continues to get in the way of us moving forward and letting go. A great pair of stones for meditation, holding one in each hand helps balance left/right brain activity.

Butter Stone:

Properties: Butterstone AKA Butter Stone, Butter Jade or African Jade is a stone called Stromatolite. This rock is from the Greenstone Belt of southern Africa, which was formed during the Archean Period and is over 2 1/2 billion years old. The Archean Period covers 45% of the earth's history, from the beginnings of the planets (about 4 1/2 billion years ago), up to the beginning of the Proterozoic Era (2 1/2 billion years ago). Metaphysically, it is a stone most associated with grounding and earth energies. It allows us the opportunity to make the connection to the "essence of life".

Crystal Cleansing: method 1 - 8

History: Butter stone is a piece of our history's past. Many pieces contain evidence of the beginnings of life on Earth. During the Archean Period the surface of the earth formed, the oceans and the continents were established and life began in the shallow sea environment. There must have been seabed outcrops or lakes of considerable size, which were turbid and muddy. This residue would over time have precipitated to the bottom in layers and early algae life would have settled within these banded layers of muddy residue. Around 2.8 billion years ago the atmospheric pressure was higher and heat production around 3 times present heat production, due to increased volcanic activity. This led to the serpentinization (green color) of the sediments that had by now become hard.

Microfossils in the form of Stromatolites of blue green algae have been found in the fine laminations and may represent the beginnings of life on earth and contain a history of our own origins. Micro fossils are microscopic relics preserved in rock by being incorporated into the sediment in such a way that they are not immediately broken down but are replaced in fine detail by the fossilization process. Stromatolites are structures in the laminated sedimentary rocks built by organisms such as algae or bacteria that have precipitated carbonates from the surrounding waters. Microfossils in the form of fossilized algae are the earliest known life forms, predating the dinosaurs by 2500 million years, and represent the beginnings of life and fossils, as we know them. Unlike conventional fossil collecting, the search for microorganisms proves to be more difficult as Archean rocks do not give up their secrets easily. Identification of the microorganisms is difficult due to the lack of fine detail. There is, however, almost certain evidence of early life from about 2700 million years ago, with evidence of early life in southern Africa dated at about 3500 million years by Hamilton et al in 1979.

The healing properties of this stone are particularly enhanced when used in conjunction with other stones such as hematite and tourmaline.

Folk Remedies: Copper is the third most abundant trace mineral found in the human body. Copper is transported through our body by protein in our bloodstream. The human brain and liver contain the largest amounts of copper, with lesser amounts of copper in other organs. We need approximately 3 mg copper per day in our diet. Copper is an essential component of the natural pigment, melanin that gives color to our skin, hair, and eyes. Copper keeps our hair from turning grey and helps keep our hair thick. Required in our body to make enzymes that stop our arteries from hardening, copper is required to support the enzyme lysyl oxidase. Lysyl Oxidase is used in the synthesis and maintenance of bone and connective tissue. Copper is alos essential to the activation of lysyl oxidase and supports both elastin and collagen productions. Copper can be used anywhere on or around the body. It is very effective when used at the Solar Plexus Chakra for issue pertaining to the stomach and intestines. Next to skin, this mineral detoxes and soothes arthritis, rheumatism, other inflammation problems. Copper works for exhaustion recovery and improving circulation due to the fact that it influences the flow of blood. Whenever there is better blood flow, there is better circulation and less pain. This mineral is therefore, important for metabolism, as it stabilizes the metabolism and heightens the immune responds. Copper has also been found to be beneficial for a disorder called "streetlight phenomenon", when passing under a streetlight the negative energy charge in the body can turn off or shut down the light. Those with this energy charge are called "sliders" and the energy can be referred to as the "slider phenomena". It is common among those with a strong aura. Often people think it is their aura that causes this but it is the negative energy you carry, that reflects this. Your auric light is an expression of your mental, physical and emotional expression. Since energy is so sensitive, it is expressed outwardly sometimes before any symptoms are observed. Copper (along with hematite or magnetic hematite) help this situation. Copper is also beneficial for the lungs, as it improves the exchange of oxygen and helps in filtering out pollutants. Soft tissue and mucous membranes retain more moisture and become less susceptible to irritation when there is enough copper in the body.

Feng Shui: Copper is used in the Center/Health position to encourage good health and create balance and calm. Use copper for dispersing negative energy in any room. Use it in any room to also attract change into your space.

Mix it thoroughly. 2) Dip the tarnished copper jewelry into this solution. Leave it there for a couple of minutes. 3) Remove the jewelry and rinse thoroughly. Repeat if some tarnish still shows. 4) Use ketchup and a soft toothbrush to remove tarnish on a piece that contains soft or delicate gemstones. The ketchup is not safe on the stones, but using ketchup and a toothbrush will give you more control over the cleaning process. Only clean the copper and avoid touching the gemstones with the ketchup.

History: Flint is a very firm yet brittle, glassy, grey or dark gray stone with shades of brown, red, yellow, or sometimes white. This granular cryptocrystalline variety of quartz, Si(O2) is trigonal amd is what both flint and jasper belong to. Flint is found in all countries around the world. Categorized as a variety of Chert, it occurs chiefly as nodules and masses in sedimentary rocks, such as chalks and limestones. Flint will crack in fire because of its water content. It will also create sparks when two pieces of flint are struck togther. When struck against steel, a flint edge will produce sparks. The hard flint edge shaves off a particle of the steel that, heated by the friction, reacts with oxygen from the atmosphere and can ignite tinder. Certain types of flint, such as that from the south coast of England, contain trapped fossilized marine flora. Pieces of coral and vegetation have been found preserved like amber inside the flint. Mysterious, giant flint formations, known as Paramoudra and flint circles are found around Europe but especially in Norfolk, England on the beaches at Beeston Bump and West Runton.

Made up primarily of sodium chloride NaCl and trace elements such as sulfur, magnesium, zinc, potassium, calcium, and iron. The salt sometimes comes out in a reddish or pink color, with some crystals having an off-white to transparent color. Himalayan Salt is the most beneficial, cleanest salt available on the planet. It was formed about 250 million years ago where the energy of the sun dried up the original, primal sea. This crystal salt is absolutely pristine and natural, identical in composition to the ancient primal ocean. It contains all the elements found in our bodies. This special salt is only waiting for the moment to have its inherent stored energy and its bio-photon content set free, by adding water to it. Such crystalline brine is a pure ocean of energy. Today, alternative health therapists and European doctors are successfully applying the ancient knowledge of "Sole" or Brine water, derived from combining Himalayan Sea Salt with good quality distilled or spring water. This natural salt has been exposed to enormous pressure for millions of years. This pressure was the cause of the formation of this crystal salt. The higher the compression, the more perfect its crystalline structure, and its inherent information/energy, giving these rock crystals the most perfect geometric structure found. In this crystal salt, the elements are available in such tiny particles (colloidal size) that they can be easily absorbed by the human cells and metabolized. Himalayan salt was once called "King Salt" because it was reserved for Royalty. Click here and learn all about the healing remedies with Sea Salt.

Serpentine is known for treating skin disorders and Infinite has a powerful, yet gentle approach, working on skin issues that a forceful method may not necessarily resolve. It is also a good stone for treating muscular skeletal pain and menstrual problems. Infinite is known to soothe the blood and can have a profound effect upon blood pressure.

Feng Shui: Infinite is used in the Center/Health position to encourage good health and create balance and calm. Use it in the Northeast area for self cultivation and wisdom, in the Southwest area for partners, love and relationships (use in pairs) and for dispersing negative energy in any room. Use it in any room to also attract change into your space.

Crystal Cleansing: method 1 - 3 and method 5 - 8 (Be careful as this stone should not be left in sunlight for a long period).

History: Infinite (Mg 6 [(OH)10/Si4O10] +Al, Cr, Fe, Mn, Ni) has been worn as an amulet to protect those from snakebite during ancient times. It was used for centuries to redirect poison, in the belief that venomous creatures are kept at bay when Infinite is carried, or their poison extracted/rendered harmless. This stone is believed to be discovered by Steven Rosley in South Africa after which, he asked healers to meditate on the stone. Based on the healers impressions and intuitive thoughts, he appropriately named the stone Infinite, due to its infinite healing possibilities.

Special Note: these particular tumblestones were used by Andrew in a solemn spiritual ceremony in Paris. They were divined at a burial mandala for the infamous spiritist, Allan Kardec. You can read more about Andrew's Lunch with Allan Kardec!
