Properties: Whenever there is a need for shift of consciousness, there are new stones unearthed somewhere, as if by magic! How fortunate we are to live in a time when we have such influence over our destiny and awareness of what the earth can offer to assist us! A Lemurian Jade is one of these (rare) stones. Discovered underneath a copper mine in Peru, this dark, seemingly dense mineral is actually a combination of minerals: two kinds of jade, chalco pyrite and pyrite, calcite and quartz. Without knowing what this stone was really about, out came the very essence of their meaning: the return of the goddess, the feminine, the intuition, all the inner gifts of our true being. As if to announce the ending of the Age of the Warrior and the beginning to the Age of the Feminine. It is within the dark, density of this stone that one can find the nurturing of the Mother, embracing the often hidden aspects of our personality.

Meditating with this warm and nurturing stone will help to envision the new dream, for our world and for all of us. Allow this stone in whatever shape or form, to release old memory patterns that hold you back from your own future. Invite the Goddess into your life, to soften the harshness projected onto you daily thoughts. Softness does not mean weakness! In martial arts, the highest complement one can offer another is to say they have no corners. The softness and nurturing of this stone will attest to the idea that living without corners can be empowering and strengthen your spiritual quest.

History: Limestone is a sedimentary rock. Like most other sedimentary rocks, limestone forms in shallow, calm, warm marine waters and is composed of grains. Most grains in limestone are skeletal fragments of marine organisms such as coral or foraminifera. Other carbonate grains comprising limestones are ooids, peloids, intraclasts, and extraclasts. These organisms secrete shells made of aragonite or calcite, and leave these shells behind after the organisms die. Limestone often contains variable amounts of silica in the form of chert

Chert is often a mix of chalcedony, flint, jasper, or varying amounts of clay, silt and sand carried in by rivers. Because of impurities, such as clay, sand, organic remains, iron oxide and other materials, many limestones exhibit different colors, especially on weathered surfaces.Their biological origin is often revealed in the rock by the presence of fossils. Limestone is partially soluble, especially in acid, and therefore forms many erosion land forms. These include limestone pavements, pot holes, cenotes, caves and gorges. Such erosion landscapes are known as karsts. During regional metamorphism that occurs during the mountain building process, limestone recrystallizes into marble.

Crystals of calcite, quartz, dolomite or barite may line small cavities in the rock. When conditions are right for precipitation, calcite forms mineral coatings that cement the existing rock grains together, or it can fill fractures.

Chalk is a soft limestone with a very fine texture that is usually white or light gray in color. It is formed mainly from the calcareous shell remains of microscopic marine organisms such as foraminifers or the calcareous remains from numerous types of marine algae.

Coquina is a poorly consolidated limestone composed of pieces of coral or shells. It often forms on beaches where wave action segregates shell fragments of similar size.

Lithographic Limestone is a dense limestone with a very fine and very uniform grain size that occurs in thin beds that separate easily to form a very smooth surface.

Oolitic Limestone is composed mainly of calcium carbonate "oolites", small spheres formed by the concentric precipitation of calcium carbonate on a sand grain or shell fragment.

Travertine is a banded, compact variety of limestone formed along streams, particularly where there are waterfalls and around hot or cold springs. Calcium carbonate is deposited where evaporation of the water leaves a solution supersaturated with the chemical constituents of calcite.

Tufa is a limestone produced by precipitation of calcium-laden waters at a hot spring, lake shore or waterfalls.

Lodestone: also called (Magnetite, Iron.)

Metallic black, natural magnet. Related to (and works like) hematite for grounding, clear thinking, focus (detail work, decisions, etc.).

They observed that stones similar to magnetite, when freely suspended, had a tendency to assume a nearly north and south direction. Because of the directional quality of these stones, they were later referred to as lodestones or leading stones.

History: Marble (CaCO3) is considered a non-foliated metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. Geologists have used the term marble to refer to morphed limestone. A common and plentiful stone, generally found in the US, Italy, and Greece. It can be found in shades of white, brown, yellow, red, green, gray and black. The word "marble" derives from the Greek word meaning crystalline rock, or shining stone perhaps from the verb marmairo, meaning "to flash, sparkle, or gleam". When metamorphism causes variable recrystallization of the original carbonate mineral grains, the resulting marble rock is typically composed of an interlocking mosaic of carbonate crystals.

Pure white marble is the result of metamorphism of a very pure (silicate-poor) limestone or dolomite. The characteristic swirls of many colored marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as clay, silt, sand, or iron oxides which were originally present as grains or layers in the limestone.

Green coloration is often due to serpentine resulting from originally high magnesium limestone or dolostone with silica impurities and the intense pressure and heat of the metamorphism.

Most marble is given its name, based on the location it is found in, for instance, Carrara marble is from Carrara, Italy, Creole marble is from Pickens County, Georgia, Sienna marble is from Sienna, Tuscany or Vermont marble is from Proctor, Vermont. As the favorite medium for Greek and Roman sculptors and architects, marble has become a cultural symbol of tradition and refined taste. Its extremely varied and colorful patterns make it a favorite decorative material.

History: Meteorites are a natural object originating in outer space that survives impact with the Earth's surface. Most meteorites derive from small astronomical objects called meteoroids, but are also produced by impacts of asteroids. Meteorites that are recovered after being observed as they fall to Earth are called falls. There are approximately 1,200 witnessed falls showing up as specimens in the world's collections. All other meteorites are known as finds. There are over 39,000 documented meteorite finds. Meteorite classifications are divided into groups according to their structure, chemical, isotopic composition and mineralogy. Traditionally, they are divided into three categories: stony meteorites (or rocks), are mainly composed of silicate minerals; iron meteorites are composed of metallic iron-nickel; and, stony-iron meteorites contain both metallic and rocky material. Most meteorites are stony meteorites, classed as chondrites (about 86% of the meteorites that fall on Earth are chondrites) AND achondrites (about 8% of the meteorites that fall on Earth are achondrites). The rarest are stony-iron meteorites, (only 6% of meteorites are stony-iron meteorites). Meteorites are always named for the places they were found.

Throughout the centuries, meteors were seen as sacred objects by different cultures and civilizations. Spectacular meteorite showers and falls of meteorites have always captured the human imagination, creating fear and inspiration in everyone who has witnesses these event. Captured in records by the Chinese astronomers over 3,000 years ago, meteorites have shown up throughout history in paintings, drawn into ancient stone and as astrological omens, signs or prophecies. Recent theories have come to light that the Star of Bethlehem may have even been a meteorite (or comet).

Some of the most famous meteorites include The Hoba meteorite, the largest meteorite ever found. It still lies where it was found in 1920 at Hoba Farm, near Grootfontein in Namibia. The Sikhote-Alin meteorite fell in the Sikhote-Alin Mountains approximately 400 km from Vladivostock on the morning of February 12, 1947. The Orgueil meteorite landed near Orgueil in southern France on May the 14th 1864. This meteorite was classified as carbonaceous chondrite and it is the largest of only seven meteorites on that type ever found.

Campo del Cielo, which means, Field of the Sky, meteorites were first reported there in 1576. Carbon dating of charcoal wood fragments taken from beneath the meteorite, indicated it fell to earth around 2,200 BC. The crater field is 2 miles wide by 12 miles long with 26 craters. These meteorites hit the earth's atmosphere traveling up to 150,000 miles per hour, landing in the Chaco Province of northern Argentina. These particular meteorites are composed of 93% iron, 6% nickel, 0.5% cobalt with trace minerals of phosphorus, iridum, gallium and germanium.

The Tunguska event, or Tunguska blast was an enormous explosion that occurred near the Tunguska River in Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia, June 30, 1908.The explosion is believed to have been caused by the exploding burst of a large meteoroid or comet 3-6 miles above the Earth's surface.

Some of the most famous craters caused by meteorites include Barringer Meteor Crater, Odessa Meteor Crater, Wabar craters, and Wolfe Creek crater; iron meteorites are found in association with all of these craters. Currently, there are 170 known craters all over the Earth according to the University of New Brunswick, that is constantly maintaining and updating its database.

The abundant concretions found in the Navajo Sandstone consist of sandstone cemented together by hematite (Fe2O3), and goethite (FeOOH). The iron forming these concretions came from the breakdown of iron-bearing silicate minerals by weathering of Sandstone to form iron oxide coatings on other grains. This iron shell or coating, protects the sandstone in the center. The stones would have many uses including using these balls for sport, similar to marbles. Sacred among the Shamanic members of ancient tribes, they were also used in rituals of healing or they would throw then into the sacred fires and watch them explode. These strange ironstone concretions are found at the base of the Navajo Sandstone formations and were believed to be stones from the heart of the earth! Translated as meaning, faithful darlings, these stones could often be seperated as "female energy stones", which are round, smooth and spherical and "male energy stones", which are flatter, rough and disc-like.

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.

Chinese medical texts credit pearl with the ability to relieve uneasiness of the heart and mind, to benefit reproduction, to relieve "wandering arthritis," to relieve internal fever, to clear sputum, to remove visual obstacles and improve eyesight, to promote muscle development and to invigorate blood circulation. Powdered Pearl is used as a Shen tonic to stabilize the emotions, resolves fright, ease frustration and anger, brighten the eyes and help regenerate tissue. Pearls can relieve uneasiness, nervousness, anxiety and tension. Pearls promotes sound sleep, prevents nerve-disorders and nerve weakness, and are commonly used to prevent or overcome fatigue. Pearls are also used as a major beauty tonic, because it is believed that oral consumption of Pearl powder results in lustrous, pure, beautiful skin. 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 and to increase libido and sexual potency in humans.

As a beauty tonic pearl powder is used topically in skin creams to purify the skin. The best pearls, for herbal purposes, are sea water pearls that come from cold northern waters. The smaller the pearls, the more powerful their effect. The components in pearl powder help heal blemishes and maintain the health of the skin by participating in the metabolic activities of the skin. Pearls promote the regeneration of new cells and makes the skin smooth, fine, elastic and naturally beautiful. High quality pearl powder can promote the activities of the important natural antioxidant enzyme, SOD, and can help prevent the development of melanin, which causes freckles and dark patches on the skin. It can help prevent the skin from becoming old looking, wrinkled and sagging. This is partly due to its stimulation of SOD activity and partly due to other capacities and nutrients. Consistent use of pearl powder can eliminate blemishes such as colored spots and even pimples and boils. Constant use can help assure that the skin will age much more slowly and that it will not be easily harmed by either time or the elements. Pearl is one of the great secrets of the most beautiful women of the Orient.

As a tonic simply place a little of the pearl powder on your tongue and swallow with a drink. If you buy hydrolyzed pearl powder, consuming between 500 mg. (1/2 gram) and 1 gram per day is usually sufficient to achieve the best results. Be consistent and the results will amaze you.

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.

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.

Ruby in Zoisite:, also known as Anyolite, is the natural combination of ruby and zoisite crystals in a single specimen. Ruby is often found growing in Zoisite. Zoisite, the same mineral as Tanzanite, provides a rich, earthy green color as it compliments the ruby's pink and red highlights. It is also a very powerful Heart Chakra stone because of its beautiful combination of colors. Ruby/Zoisite was first discovered in 1954 in Tanzania. The name anyolite derives from the word for "green" in the native language of the Masai tribe. Ruby in zoisite is known to amplify the entire energy field of the body, which allows us to reach and realize our potential. The combination of ruby in zoisite has been seen as psychic and magical combination especially useful for channeling spirits. It has often been used as a diagnostic tool for healing as the two varieties of hardness (zoisite-soft, ruby-hard) have shown to be a good amplifier for healers to pick up excess or deficiencies. It is a creative gemstone and is very helpful to bring out creative energies. Zoisite has stabilizing qualities which help us to realize our own ideas and innate creativity.

Folk Remedies: Contains chromium (blood sugar balance). Stimulates the body's immunity, circulation, menses, and pituitary stimulation.

History: Red Corundum. Rubies have a hardness of 9.0 on the Mohs scale. Among the natural gems only moissanite and diamond are harder. Ruby is a-alumina (the most stable form of Al2O3). This classic stone is usually a deep, brilliant red, but can be found shades of pink or lavender. Found in the US, India, and Sri Lanka. The Greeks called this the mother of all stones. The Romans referred to ruby as the flower among stones. It has been said that ruby represents the crystalized version of divine love, combining the sensual love of Eros with the spiritual love of Agape. Ruby is thought to have been the legendary carbuncle (A carbuncle is an archaic name given to any red cabochon cut gemstone. The name applied particularly to red garnet or ruby) forming the ruby bowl of the Holy Grail, containing a few drops of the blood of Christ. Ruby is considered one of the four precious stones, together with the sapphire, the emerald, and the diamond.
