ABOUT THE STONES: Part of my fascination with jewelry making is the stones. What do they mean? Where did they come from? Below find the meaning of the stones of this particular piece. Please keep in mind that gemstones and semi-precious gemstones have many different meanings to many different cultures- these are just what I’ve found in my research! :)
***AGATE is THE stone everyone should have for protection. It attracts strength and has been said to protect the possessor from bad dreams. Different types of Agate stones were used in ancient Babylonia to make jewelry. Babylonians also placed them at the head of their bed-they thought agate brought good dreams! It is also known for it's power!
***HOWLITE is a super calming stone and many people use it to relieve stress of all kinds. It makes an excellent antidote to insomnia due to an overactive mind. Wear a howlite stone to absorb your own anger – or another’s anger that is directed toward you. It helps to overcome critical or selfish behavior.
***GOLDSTONE is a man made gemstone that has been around since the European Renaissance. Early monks working at a glass factory near Venice, Italy were practicing alchemy when molten copper accidentally tipped into a molten glass container. This crystallized into thousands of tiny crystals and formed a melt with golden light sparkles. Goldstone is said to energize those who wear it!
***BEARS Guardian of the West…the bear is associated with great strength, power, and healing…the great protector…the “sacred bear”. The bear is the guardian fetish of the West. It represents strength and self-knowledge. It is a spiritual guide and also carries within him supernatural powers. The bear is a powerful healing fetish. The white bear is the most powerful medicine bear.
