O NAME ORIGIN ABOUT

FRESHWATER PEARLS

China

Freshwater pearls are referred to in prosaic terms as "special features from the sea"- and rightly so. Pearls are not only beautiful and each one is unique, they have also been said to have a mystical-magical impact since ancient times: they are supposed to have a healing effect. Pearls can alleviate grief, stress, and dissatisfaction. They should also help resolve internal conflicts and thus aid in regaining inner balance.

ROSE QUARTZ

Brazil, Sweden, Namibia, USA

Rose quartz can range from a light, almost translucent pink to a richer, milkier pink. The grade of pink pigmentation depends on microscopic mineral inclusions of dumortierite or possibly titanium. Rose quartz is said to open its wearers heart. It promotes self care and love.

LEMON QUARTZ

Norway, Spain, Australia, Argentina, USA

Lemon? Yes! Lemon! The yellow quartz (citrine) got its name, of course, because of it's yellowish color. The name is derived from the latin word "citrus" and translated it means lemon. Citrines come in very different shades of yellow: from light to dark yellow, yellow-brown, lemon-yellow, or orange-yellow. Real yellow citrine is very rare in nature. Citrine give its wearer zest for life, strengthens self-confidence, helps with stress, grief, and depression.

AVENTURINE

Germany, Austria, South Africa, India, China, Japan, USA

This gemstone owes it's color to microcrystalline inclusions. Aventurine has a strong shimmer, and it's metallic sheen is particularly noticeable. It is therefore very popular in jewelry production.

MOSS AGATE

Germany, Hungary, Kazakhstan, USA, Canada

Don't let the name fool you. Moss Agate is by no means, as suspected, moss green and doesn't have much to do with moss, it just has a moss-like pattern. It is also not an agate- it is a chalcedony and therefore belongs to the quartz group. Moss agates are mostly colorless or white, interspersed with green, green-black, or red-brown delicate structures that are reminiscent of tiny, branched trees. As decorations, moss agates are mainly offered in smooth cuts. The stone makes you brave, strengthens self-confidence, and promotes self-awareness. For many people it is also a good luck charm.

This green stone was admired even in ancient times. Egyptians are reported to have used it for jewelry and interior decoration.
