Self-Confidence // Energy
The second rarest of its kind, the fire opal's unique warm glow comes from being forged in the depths of ancient volcanoes. Jewelry and other relics made from this gem were found in burial sites by the Aztec and Mayan peoples, who referred to it as quetzalitzlipyollitli or, “the stone of the bird of paradise.”

INSPIRATION // VAST WEALTH
Revered as the ‘Golden Sheen Sapphire’, this exceptionally rare gem was discovered in Northern Kenya. Only recently revealed to the world in 2014, the secret mine housing the golden sapphire has since been depleted, and no other source is currently known. The naturally occurring iridescence elevates this stone far above other sapphires, with dazzling and distinct flash variations of blues, greens, and yellows.

CLARITY // CLEANSING
One of the world’s most ancient stones, and possibly the first ever to be mined, cultures from around the world have prized turquoise for its protective properties and association with the gods. The lore is deep and rich - the gem has been placed in amulets, used in shamanistic ceremonies, and even attached to arrows to improve a hunters accuracy.

Also known as ‘cactus quartz’, this rare and unusual crystal was only recently mined in the Magaliesberg Mountain region of South Africa. With a base layer of quartz, it gets its distinct spiky features from a second generation of small terminated points growing atop the main crystal.

Transfiguration // Renewal
After falling from the stars and crash landing in southern Bohemia some 15 million years ago, the precious cosmic tektite has since mystified and captivated all who behold it. Amulets, talismans, and ritual athames made of moldavite were found after the excavation of the Venus of Willendorf. A stone of myth and lore, it has also been linked with the Holy Grail, the celestial battle between Lucifer and Archangel Michael, and the Philosopher's Stone.

Creativity // Manifestation
In a remote desert near the Libyan border lies a 29 million year old mystery that has long puzzled scientists and geologists. While a beautifully carved scarab beetle made of Libyan desert glass was found in King Tut’s burial chamber in the 1920s, its origins are still being debated. The prevailing theory is that a cosmic cataclysm of an airblast superheated the desert sands, resulting in the unique and golden Great Sand Sea glass.

Rich, brilliantly blue, and subtly sparkling, this lusciously pigmented stone can be found in ancient cave paintings and the halls of museums across the world. Grind it into a fine powder and mix with a binder, and you have the most important blue pigment used throughout the Middle Ages and Renaissance period.
