Famed for its shimmering beauty the world over, iridescent shell known as mother of pearl is the organic/inorganic material lining the inside of a molluscs shell. The play of colour that floats over the surface of the interior lining- also known as lustre- is an optical phenomenon wherein wavelengths of light are scattered and refracted back toward the viewer in a dazzling display.
It is believed that Apatite is a stone for focus, learning and concentration. Since ancient times it has been associated with aiding intellectual pursuits and enhancing creativity. Apatite is also said to bring peace and harmony into your life by drawing off negativity about yourself and others. It has been linked by some to the zodiac sign of Gemini and the Third Chakra.
Spiritual people believe Garnet to be a stone of love, intimacy and commitment. Ancient people wore Garnet to bring inspiration, success and confidence into their lives. It is also thought by some to help control anger and bring positive thoughts. Garnet is traditionally associated with the Base and Heart Chakras. Garnet is the birthstone for January.
