Bubbles of air can get trapped in molten rock, which, when densely packed, can produce effects that look like rainbows.

When iron is introduced into the formation, mahogany obsidian is formed. Obsidian has been used by many cultures for jewelry and tools. Obsidian arrowheads are often found, dating back centuries.

History: Onyx (Si O2) is a banded variety of chalcedony. The colors of its bands range from white to almost every color. Commonly, specimens of onyx contain bands of black and/or white. It is cryptocrystalline, consisting of fine intergrowths of the silica minerals quartz and moganite. Its bands are parallel to one another, as opposed to the more chaotic banding that often occurs in agates.
Sardonyx is a variant in which the colored bands are Sard (shades of red) rather than black. Black onyx is perhaps the most famous variety, but is not as common as onyx with colored bands. Artificial treatments have been used since ancient times to produce both the black color in "black onyx" and the reds and yellows in sardonyx. Onyx comes from the Latin "onyx" meaning "claw" or "fingernail". With its fleshtone color, onyx can be said to resemble a fingernail. The English word "nail" is associated with the Greek word. It has a long history of use for hardstone carving and jewelry, where it is usually cut as a cabochon or into beads. It has also been used for intaglio and hardstone cameo engraved gems, where the bands make the image contrast with the ground.
Onyx was used in Egypt as early as the Second Dynasty to make bowls and other pottery items. Use of sardonyx appears in the art of Minoan Crete, notably from the archaeological recoveries at Knossos. Onyx is also mentioned in the Bible at various points, such as in Genesis 2:12 "and the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone", and such as the priests' garments and the foundation of the city of Heaven in Revelation.
Onyx was known to the Ancient Greeks and Romans. The first-century naturalist Pliny the Elder described both type of onyx and various artificial treatment techniques in his Naturalis Historia. Slabs of onyx (from the Atlas Mountains) were famously used by Mies van der Rohe in Villa Tugendhat at Brno (completed 1930) to create a shimmering semi-translucent interior wall.

Pearls are in the medical arsenal of every acupuncturist and herbalist, even today. Other common names for pearl include Mother of Pearl. Its pharmaceutical latin name is "Margarita"
and the Pinyin name is Zhen Zhu. Pearl is not just a mineral. It contains dozens of amino acid (eight of the amino acids are "essential," in other words, cannot be produced in the body but are required
for health), and dozens of minerals, including: calcium, magnesium zinc, iron, strontium, copper, selenium, silicon, titanium. Pearl contains calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, calcium phosphate, ferric oxide, silica. Various components in pearl participate in DNA and RNA metabolic activities, and thus can promote and accelerate cell renewal. Mucopolysaccharides in Margarita have been shown to prevent wrinkling

History: Basically there are two types of pearls: natural and cultivated. Natural pearls are much more expensive and are considered to be superior to cultivated pearls for both external, cosmetic use, and for internal, nutritional use. The natural pearls used in herbalism are very small. The smaller the pearl, the more potent and effective the pearl is as an herb. Some pearls are not much larger than a grain
of salt. These very small pearls, which are softer, can be easily crushed and ground into very fine powder which can be absorbed with relatively high efficiency by the digestive tract. Natural pearls have more magnesium carbonate than cultured pearls.
Cultivated pearls are not considered to be of the same herbal quality as natural pearls. They tend to be large and difficult to grind into fine powder. However, over the last decade a new technology has been developed in China whereby the cultivated pearls are "hydrolyzed." Through modern advanced biochemical technology, pearl can now be made virtually totally water soluble. Cultured pearls have more calcium carbonate than natural pearls.
Hydrolyzed pearl powder, which is pearl that has been broken down for easy and complete absorption, has been shown in China to help the growth of children's teeth and bones and to improve children's intelligence. Hydrolyzed pearl has also been shown to be beneficial for habitual constipation, acting quickly, gently and effectively. Studies indicate that hydrolyzed pearl can lower blood pressure,
increase endurance, and can prevent osteoporosis and various cardiovascular diseases. Recent studies indicate that hydrolyzed pearl is effective in healing inflammation of the uterus. The solubility rate of this hydrolyzed pearl is 98%, and of this, studies have shown that 95% is absorbed into the blood stream
through the digestive tract. This ability to absorb is approximately four times the bio-availability of normal ground pearl, and double that of the finest ground natural pearl. This increased bio-availability and the enormous reduction in cost makes the hydrolyzed pearl an extraordinary value.

History: Preseli Dolerite (Bluestone) is a metamorphic igneous rock made up of Plagioclase Feldspar and Augite and is a Pyroxene mineral (calcium magnesium aluminosilicate. Ca, Mg, FE, AI, (Al,Si,206). It is medium grained dark and heavy rock, harder than granite. Legend has it that Merlin transported stones from the Preseli Hills to Stonehenge for the construction of Camelot and King Arthur's Round Table. Of the 7 circles that go to make up Stonehenge, the 5th circle and inner horseshoe are constructed from stones known as "Bluestones" which originated in the Preseli Hills. Of the 45 remaining stones at Stonehenge, 9 remain standing in the 5th circle and 7 in the horseshoe.
The Welsh legends called the Mabinogion, which means "Tales of Youth", come from here and it is said that the way into "Annwn", the Welsh fairyland, can be found here too. Indeed, Pentre Ifan, sometimes called "The Womb of Cerridwen", which is also built of Preseli Bluestone and located within the Preseli Hills, is said to be one of the main gateways into the realm of Fairies.
The Preseli Hills themselves are crisscrossed with ley lines, ancient trackways, standing stones, burial chambers and stone circles and the hills sparkle with shining white crystal quartz. Even during early Christian times, the place was considered almost as holy as Jerusalem and Rome. This is also the land of Druids who still continue this 5,000-year old tradition of building stone circles in Wales each year for their National Eisteddfods.

History: Pyrite, also called iron pyrite, is an iron sulfide (FeS2). This mineral's metallic luster and pale brass yellow color give it a superficial resemblance to gold, hence the well-known nickname of fool's gold. This glittering stone was notoriously mistaken by naive prospectors as real gold. Found in most of North America as well as in Chile and Peru. The color has also led to the nicknames brass, brazzle, and Brazil, primarily used to refer to pyrite found in coal. Pyrite remains in commercial use for the production of sulfur dioxide, for use in such applications as the paper industry, and in the manufacture of sulfuric acid. A commercial use for pyrite is seen in the cathode material in Energizer brand non-rechargeable lithium batteries. Pyrite usually forms cuboid crystals, but, under certain circumstances, it can form T shaped crystals. Pyrite can also form dodecahedral crystals. It also forms flat, radial disks called "sun disks" or "sun dollars". It is distinguishable from native gold by its hardness, brittleness and crystal form. Natural gold tends to be irregularly shaped, whereas pyrite comes as either cubes or multifaceted.
