Romans used onyx in the creation of many carving and seals due to the richness and variety of the stone’s colors. They also associated black onyx with courage and bravery.

Associated with new beginnings and rebirth, black onyx is believed to help move beyond old relationships and start new ones. Its powerful properties are also believed to help release negativity and refocus attentions.

Lapis

True to its name, Lapis means “blue stone” in Latin. As far back as 3100 BC, the ancient Egyptians used lapis in jewelry and other royal ornaments. The famous golden sarcophagus of King Tutankhamen included lapis. Other ancient civilizations such as the Babylonians, Minoans, Chinese, Greeks and Romans also incorporated this stunning blue stone in their fine pieces of art. Catherine the Great of Russia decorated a room in her palace with lapis walls, fireplaces, doors and mirror frames.

Lapis is said to have the ability to open the channels of truthful communication. This stone is ideal for setting intentions and setting inner visions. Given its history, Lapis is also known for its royal virtues.

White Quartz

White Quartz is a beautiful milky white gemstone found in Brazil, South Africa, Madagascar and the United States. White Quartz is also commonly known as “Milky Quartz” or “Snow Quartz” because of its creamy pale coloring.

It is said that White Quartz has the power to calm emotions. By purifying negative energy, White Quartz works to soothe and relieve stress.

Rhodonite

Rhodonite’s name derives from the Greek word “Rhodos” meaning “Rose Red”. While the color typically stays true to its name, sometimes the stones can be a brownish red. Rhodonite can be found in Sweden, Australia, India, Madagascar, Mexico, South Africa, Brazil, Canada and the United States. Rhodonite also became the state gemstone of Massachusetts in 1979.

It is said that Rhodonite’s unique energy is about opening your mind and heart. This stone has the ability to lead you to love, generosity, altruism and new discoveries like hidden talents.

Red Jasper

Jasper stones can come in a variety of magnificent colors and patterns. The word Jasper is derived from the Greek word “iaspi” which means spotted stone. Unlike most jaspers, Red Jasper stones are one pure color. Red Jaspers are found all over the world with important deposits in India, Russia, Brazil, France, Germany and the United States. According to Norse Legend, the magic sword of Siegfried the dragon slayer was inlaid with Red Jasper.

Like the legend says, Red Jasper contains metaphysical properties of physical strength and vitality.

Blue Chalcedony

Chalcedonies can range widely in beautiful colors and patterns. The stone’s name suggests that perhaps it came from the Greek port city of Chalcedon. Many varieties of Chalcedony were worked into jewelry and carvings in the ancient civilizations of Greece, Rome and Egypt. Two of the most popular colors for this stone are the blue chalcedony and the purple chalcedony.

It is believed that Blue Chalcedony is used to help center one’s self. Its calm and balanced energies lead to a stronger inner knowledge and communication.

Green Aventurine

Aventurine is a member of the Quartz family and comes in 3 colors, green, blue and reddish-brown. Aventurine is said to be a stone of optimism and zest for life. Until the 19th century, Aventurine was called the "Stone of the Amazons". The story goes that the deposits in Brazil were used to supply the jewels of the Amazon warriors queens.
The Green Aventurine is said to be the stone of "good luck". It is also said to build confidence, dissolve negative thoughts and bring calmness.

White Howlite

Often formed in nodules, which resemble cauliflower, Howlite is white with grey and black veins. The stone was first found in Nova Scotia in the 19th century by a mineralogist named Henry How and hence the name Howlite.
It is believed that Howlite can relieve stress and open up the mind.

Malachite

The distinctive swirling pattern of light and dark green marbling of the Malachite has made this stunning stone a representation of sensuality and beauty.
The ancient Egyptians around 4000 BC were the first culture to use malachite in jewelry and art. The stone was also popular with the Greeks and Romans for jewelry, ornaments, and powdered form. During the Renaissance period, Malachite was also used in European paintings as a pigment for paints and dyes. It was the Romanov dynasty in Russia that made Malachite a stone of luxury by using the stone in jewelry with gold and diamonds.
It is believed that malachite instills confidence and self-responsibility and assists with maintaining positive emotional balance.
