New Gems!

Sugilite is a rare stone only found in Japan and South Africa. Sugilite is considered one of the most important love stones. Many believe that Sugilite represents spiritual love and wisdom, opening and aligning all the chakras to love with its beautiful purple rays. Petrified Wood was once an ancient, living, breathing tree. It was buried and fossilized, over a long period of time, and the organic parts of its structure were replaced by minerals. The markings and patterns on the stone are the original tree’s growth rings and knots. Sonoran Dendritic Rhyolite Jasper comes from Mexico and is a relatively new stone that is mainly composed of feldspar, mica and quartz that was created by lava flowing over rock. Sonora Dendritic Rhyolite Jasper is often connected to change, progress and creativity. Zebra Jasper is a variety of Jasper in the quartz family (chalcedony) identifiable by its zebra-like stripes. Metaphysically, Zebra Jasper is used for those needing to escape the perils of over-thinking and promotes the enjoyment of experiencing life as it comes. It also helps to stimulate the transition from the material plane to the astral plane during meditation and assists in centering of the soul. On the physically plane, Zebra Jasper is said to be helpful with stamina, endurance, bone disorders, osteoporosis, teeth, gums, muscle spasms, and heart palpitations.
