COURAGE: Picture Jasper | Lion Medallion | Yoga Reiki 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.

The Greek Key (Meander) motif took its name from the river Meander, a river with many twists, mentioned by Homer in Iliad.
The Greek Key was the most important symbol in Ancient Greece, symbolizing infinity or the eternal flow of things.
Many temples and objects were decorated with this motif, and it is considered that there is a connection with the Cretan labyrinth – indeed - a labyrinth can be drawn using a Greek key.
The Greek Key symbolizes the bonds of friendship, of love and devotion and that’s the reason it’s often given as marriage gift.
Lion Amulets are meant to signify composed self assurance and boldness.
In many countries and belief systems the Lion stands for a fearless, positive and dignified force who offers security and a strong sense of control.
The Lion, with its proud noble features, is seen as a universal symbol of strength and has a natural air of authority.
In Buddhism, the Lion is considered very important as they are representative of and referred to as 'the sons of Buddha'.
They are symbolic of bodhisattvas who are beings who have achieved a higher plane of spiritual development. To do this, they have to understand and practice the main six paramitas of concentration, charity, morality, patience, effort and wisdom. Only then can they become 'Buddha's Lion's'.
The Lion is also associated with the City of Venice in acting as a guarding patron by assisting Saint Mark.
