My Picks for Spring and Summer Part 1

Hey friends, I wanted to share some information about the stones I've chosen for the spring and summer bracelets! Lets just jump right in! The stone I am most excited for is Blue Apatite, I not only love the appearance of this stone, but also the properties. Apatite stimulates the pineal gland, which the philosopher Descartes called the seat of the soul. William Blake said that when your pineal gland you experience the world in a grain of sand and eternity in an hour. The pineal gland secretes DMT, also known as the spirit molecule. Blue Apatite is a stone of inspiration and that is a huge reason why I chose it. Staying inspired can help us thrive in whatever...

The Legends Behind the Stone: Labradorite

Labradorite is a very popular stone, which happens to be one of my favourites! Today I will not be covering the facts about Labradorite (leave a comment if you would like me to and I will), but rather going over some folklore surrounding the stone. According to Eskimo legend the Northern Lights fell from the sky and got captured in the stone along the coast of Labrador. It is told that a warrior came upon these stones and tried to set the Northern Lights free with his spear, he freed most of the Northern Lights, but not all. The ones that stayed trapped were said to be what gave Labradorite its stunning flashes of colour. What do you think of...
