In crystal healing it is helpful for arthritis and other joint problems, muscle problems, the heart and digestion. Shells have been used for millennia. The birthstone for July.

The 2 pearls come are ethically sourced, their lustre quite beautiful. Pearls symbolise wisdom acquired through experience. They are believed to attract wealth and luck as well as offer protection. The pearl is also said to symbolize the purity, generosity, integrity, and loyalty of its wearer. It is said that one of the reasons Julius Caesar wanted to invade British Isles was it’s pearls: Rose pink for Scotland, black from Ennerdale in Cumbria and white from Island. Highly prized amongst many cultures and some could only be worn by the wealthy and elites such as aristocrats in Rome could wear them. They have been associated with Venus, the goddess of love.

These boulder opals are truly stunning both their colours and patterns. Some say opals are the fruits and nuts from the Garden of Eden, turned to stone. Considered by many to be the most magical and luckiest of stones. Affiliated with hope, purity and truth. In the Medieval period, they were believed to capture all the properties of the healing stones. So desired and loved, that when Mark Antony requested the opal of a Roman senator Nonius in 35BC, the senator decided upon exile rather than to give the stone up. In antiquity many stones in Europe came from Czernowitza, modern day Slovakia, from the 1870’s they come from Australia, such as these.

The pyrite ammonites are sourced from Charmouth, Dorset. Ammonites are an extinct group of marine invertebrate animals, and are a type of mollusc. The pyrite is a form of iron which sometimes occurs as a replacement mineral during the fossilisation process, preserving the details of the original animal. Pyrite is considered to bring success, abundance; grounding; drawing up Earth’s unlimited energy supply into our bodies for healing & vitality; structure; confidence; divine knowledge; joy. It is believed to usher in the golden ray of divine wisdom.
