The Water Goddess of Love in Greek Mythology, Aphrodite represents the archetype of the Lover, in all its duality. She is often pictured coming out of the sea, standing on a mussel shell, and dolphins and birds are her sacred animals.
This bracelet, a combination of 10mm aquamarine crystal, matte Chinese turquoise, and lava beads with touches of silver, clear aurora borealis and blue-iris pave spacers, is reminiscent of sea foam and sky.
Each bracelet comes with your choice of KUMARA diffuser oil sample to be applied to only the lava beads. Small and large bracelet sizes are approximately 7 and 8 inches.
In traditional thought, Turquoise unites the earth and sky, bringing together male and female energies. [Hall, 306]Turquoise stimulates the initiation of romantic love, and promotes spontaneity in romantic issues. It is believed to change color to warn of impending danger or to indicate infidelity in thought or action. [Melody, 669]
Spiritually, Turquoise heals and cleanses both the energy centers and the physical body. It acts to induce wisdom and understanding, and to enhance trust, kindness, and the recognition of beauty. [Melody, 669] What we wish for ourselves -- happiness, love, freedom of limitation and fear -- when extended to others by letting go of our insistence of “justice” and viewing others through compassion and forgiveness, we receive those gifts back through our own heart. [Simmons, 420]
Turquoise enhances the ability to see all aspects of ourselves, good and bad, and to integrate these aspects into a cohesive whole. While it is tempting to try and rid ourselves of the traits of self that are not entirely enlightened, Turquoise, like an ancient Grandfather ally, reminds us that all experiences are valid and that mistakes are simply another experience. Wholeness can only come when we are willing to embrace all of who we are and what we have learned. [Ahsian, 420]
Aquamarine Colored Crystal (heat treated)
Like humans, each Clear Quartz crystal is unique, each with its own personality, lessons, and experiences. The crystals attracted into one's life are stones that will in some way help facilitate personal growth and awareness. They may work subliminally in unawakened minds, but for those spiritually attuned to the universe Quartz crystals are like beacons of light and positive energy to be used in daily thoughts, feelings, words and actions and integrated onto the earth. [Raphaell, 50-51]
As a connection between the physical dimension and the spiritual, Clear Quartz enhances communication with plants, animals, minerals, and in speaking with and receiving information from the Divine and other-worldly masters, teachers and healers. Its natural tendency is for harmony and brings a sense of purpose to those who resonate with it. [Melody, 503]
Properties: The elemental powers of fire and earth, lava rocks are rich in minerals from deep in the earth's core. Born of fire, these molten creations raise to the surface and become porous creations of earth. Fire is one of the four classical elements in ancient Greek philosophy and science. It was commonly associated with the qualities of energy, assertiveness, and passion, while earth was commonly associated with qualities of practicality, restraint and materialism.
Lava rocks embrace both elements. These red and black lava rocks are a wonderful tool for the root chakra. The can be used for grounding, protection and making a connection to the earth. They allow us to "root" scattered energy, find focus and bring balance to our center by embracing practicality. This stone is beneficial when your 1st and/or 2nd chakras are energetically weak. They encourage stimulation.
