HAPPINESS: African Turquoise | OM | Buddha | Hamsa Hand Yoga Chakra Bracelet
Crystals were created as the earth formed and they have continued to metamorphose as the planet itself has changed. They are the earth's DNA, a chemical imprint for evolution. They are miniature storehouses containing the records of the development of the earth over millions of years, and bearing the indelible memory of the powerful forces that shaped it. Their crystalline structure can absorb, conserve, focus and emit energy, especially on the electromagnetic waveband.
Crystals make excellent jewelry for both men and women. Wearing gems used to be a royal or priestly prerogative. The high priest of Judaism wore a breastplate set with precious stones. It was much more than a badge of office; it conveyed power to the wearer. As far back as the Stone Age, men and women wore crystal jewelry and talismen. They had a protective as well as decorative function, guarding their wearer from harm.
Crystals have been used to heal and bring balance, working through resonance and vibration. Crystals are said to heal holistically - that is to say, they work on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of being. They realign subtle energies that surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body and activating linkage points to the chakras that regulate the body's vibrational stasis. Chakra stone therapy has been shown to help cancer patients.
The gemstone property information here is to use as you see fit, but is not to take the place of professional medical care. Crystals, Gemstones and Talismen can negate, protect, encourage, strengthen, and balance and promote healing and positivity. Their effects can be extraordinary, but use in addition to medical advice, and not as a substitute for proper care.

Raku pottery's interesting rainbow like glaze effects are created through a unique firing process. The piece is sealed in a glaze with high copper content. The pottery is fired like any other ceramic, but is removed while the glaze is still molten hot. The piece is then placed in a bin of combustible materials. These ignite, causing a reaction with the copper, resulting in a colorful luster and irregular surface patterns.

The Hamsa hand is best known for the power to protect the owner from the evil eye and bring happiness to the holder.
The holder of the Hamsa expects to be protected from all negative energies. The most common negative energy being envious glares from people wishing you no good.
A hamsa is a hand, with three extended fingers in the middle with an eye displayed in the palm of the hand.
The eye is thought to be a powerful talisman against the “evil eye.”
The evil eye is a certain “look” that can cause bad luck for the person at whom it is directed.
This “look” often originates with a person, though not always intentionally. Legends about the evil eye give both regular people and those with certain powers the ability to cast the evil eye.
In the case of most people, envy is most often cited as the unintentional source of the evil eye.
The Evil Eye Symbol is meant to “reflect” the power of the evil look reflects the evil intent back to the onlooker.
The evil eye is a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, which is usually directed towards a person who is unaware. Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause one misfortune, bad luck or injury.
The evil eye amulet originated in Greece, where it was known as an “apotropaic” amulet, meaning that it reflected harm.
