Stone: BLACK ONYX August 18 2014, 0 Comments
Black Onyx has been used for centuries as a bead making stone as its properties have long been recognized. It could then easily be made into jewelry to wear on the body and receive its positive energy.
It is mostly known as a stone of strength, endurance and vigor. It is very grounding and provides support as we carry even the most difficult task to completion. A wonderful stone for long term goals, projects or challenges that tend to drain our energy & resources.
It is great for all types of endeavors, but is most often used for work related purposes as it really focuses our mental and emotional energies. Perfect stone for someone who has a lot of ideas but lacks the discipline to carry them out. It imparts self-confidence and stimulates the power of wise decision-making. I personally use it a lot in my business, especially when my emotions feel “all over the place” and my mind can’t focus. When I feel overwhelmed, but have to get things accomplished, this is my go-to stone!
Onyx helps cool the nervous system and soothe anxiety. It harmonizes the physical with the spiritual and helps alleviate fears and worries. A very powerful stone to assist us with grief and sorrow as it helps in the letting go process. It aids in gently releasing past attachments as well as old beliefs & patterns that no longer serve us.
It also helps align us to our powers and remain open to receive guidance.
Physically, it strengthens the structural systems of bones, teeth, hair, nails and skin. Emotionally, it helps calm the intense “roller coaster” rides, and also balances the yin & yang aspects of our being.
Spiritually, it helps receive visions & guidance through meditation and dreams.

Stone: TURQUOISE July 29 2014, 0 Comments
Turquoise has been used for thousands of years, and is one of the oldest stones to be made into jewelry; the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. Many honored Turquoise as the universal stone, believing their minds would become one with the Universe when wearing it.
It has impressive metaphysical properties and is a powerful healing stone. Used a lot for protection and purification as it dispels negative energies and transmutes them. It can be worn to shield against outside influences and even pollutants in the atmosphere.
It is also a symbol of friendship.
Turquoise has a strong effect on the throat chakra and therefore promotes clear & truthful communication. A great leadership stone that helps balance the male and female aspects of our being, encourages self-realization and assists in creative problem solving.
It helps align all the chakras, stabilizing emotions and instilling inner peace. It is an excellent stone for depression and exhaustion. Physically, it enhances the immune system and stimulates the regeneration of tissue.
On a more superficial note... it's just a really beautiful & colorful stone! It adds a joyful and soothing touch to all outfits. Wear it with other bright colors and neutral ones alike, and have fun!

Smokey Quartz is a root chakra stone, and wonderful for those times in our lives when we really want to move forward, to fuel our motivation and empower our projects & goals. It helps release the obstacles within our being like old programs that no longer serve us and limited thought patterns we subconsciously picked up along the way.
It is also a very protective & grounding stone, and can shield us from negative energies. It can even transform those darker energies into positivity & light.
Emotionally, Smokey Quartz is excellent for elevating moods and relieving depression, stress, fear, and anger. It is very comforting and calming, and can be considered a stone of serenity. Using it during meditation helps access higher states of consciousness. It is also a great crystal to stimulate kundalini.
On a more practical note, Smokey Quartz has a beautiful, earthy and neutral color so it can be accessorized easily and therefore worn often.

Stone: PEARL May 12 2014, 0 Comments
Pearls probably carry the softest and most nurturing vibration of all stones. Well actually (as we all know), they aren't "stones" as they're not formed & found in the earth, but they are certainly considered gems and are used a lot in jewelry designs. I personally think their water origin contributes greatly to their flowy, gentle, highly feminine energy.
The birth of a pearl is truly a miraculous event. A natural pearl begins its life as a foreign object, such as a parasite or piece of shell that accidentally lodges itself in an oyster's soft inner body where it cannot be expelled. To ease this irritant, the oyster's body takes action. The oyster begins to secrete a smooth, hard crystalline substance (nacre) around the irritant in order to protect itself. Literally turning a nuisance into a gem. Miraculous indeed
Pearls are powerful teachers of self-love and self-acceptance; the keys that open the doors to our highest potential and allow us to create our dream life. I work with them and wear them often, and try to stay open and learn...

Stone: CHERRY QUARTZ April 25 2014, 0 Comments
This is the sister-stone of the well known Rose Quartz; a darker, more vibrant version of it. But it carries the same gentle, nurturing energy and is filled with love vibration. It is a powerful gem to soften and open the heart, and is particularly effective at promoting self-love.
A wonderful choice for wedding jewelry if the color calls to you (and matches your theme!) as it encourages the flow of love between its wearer and those around her.
I also recommend this gem for children. The young hearts are in their natural, open state and this stone aids in maintaining that openness through the challenges that accompany childhood (peer pressure, etc...)
Plus this warm shade of pink is so girly and fun!

Stone: MOONSTONE April 23 2014, 0 Comments
I've always found Moonstone to be quite mesmerizing with its iridescent hues of blue, purple, green and yellow. Depending on the perspective of the viewer, and how the light pours through it, Moonstone takes on a different appearance and personality. Constantly changing and flowing, just like the Feminine energy it is so full of, so connected with.
This stone has a very soothing and nurturing vibration and is therefore wonderful to wear during challenging times and stressful transitions.
It's also a perfect stone for weddings; for the brides who want to connect to their deep, powerful feminine core and be in a soft, open space to receive their groom.
Another fabulous aspect of this gemstone is that it goes with everything. So wear it often and enjoy the benefits.

Stone: CARNELIAN April 23 2014, 0 Comments
Red is one of my favorite colors, and Carnelian one of my favorite stones. Vibrant, full of life and passion, it's a happy stone that will make you want to sing & dance.
A great choice for those times in life when we're dragging our feet, feeling low energy and lacking motivation. Physically it adds a beautiful splash of vibrant color when we accessorize our outfits with it. Energetically it gives a spark of passion and ignites (or rekindles) our inner fire.
Here are several great options, from subtle to spectacular, to add a little Carnelian to your daily life: http://magdamolina.com/search?x=0&y=0&q=carnelian
Here's to living life to the fullest!
