Celtic Sailors Knot: "What the Sailor’s Knot Symbolizes The strength and fortification provided by these knots are a beautiful allegory for the binding of true and enduring love, withstanding even the worst storms and rough waters that life throws at us. The Celtic sailor’s knot represents the sea in the summertime and was a keepsake of harmony, lasting love, friendship, and affection. Since it also was a protective amulet, sailors believed it would keep them safe while at sea. It is a powerful lucky charm, believed to bless the wearer with good fortune. Even though modern sailors don’t use it in the same way, this knot is a common design found in tattoos, decorative motifs, and jewelry. You can see it on rings, necklaces, anklets, earrings, brooches, and bracelets. In brief Celtic sailor’s knot is an ancient symbol of everlasting love. Its inherent design lends itself to strength and durability, the perfect allegory for a love that’s tried and true. Although not as popular as other Celtic knots, it’s a beautiful interlocking design perfect in jewelry and fashion." -SymbolSage.com

Bone Beads: "Bone BeadsOne of the first materials used to make beads were bones. Native Americans used the bones of the animals they killed to make jewelry for two reasons. Firstly, they believed it was wasteful to discard any part of the animal. Thus, they ate the meat, used the hides for clothing, and used the bones for tools and beads. Secondly, Native Americans believed that the souls of the animals still lived in the parts of the animal, so the wearer of the jewelry would have traits of that animal while wearing the beads, and the souls of the animals could live on. The bone beads were dyed with tea for color, thus creating dark beads and light beads for contrast." - TribalDirectory.com

Lapis Lazuli: "Lapis Lazuli is a stone that emboldens the communicative abilities between the mind, throat, and heart. One will shortly begin to find themselves radiating the truth of their emotional body. Lapis Lazuli’s energies promote heightened intellect, inner visions, and an expanded mental capacity. Throughout the ages, Lapis Lazuli has been viewed as a stone of royalty between powerful kings, queens, dukes, and pharaohs. Our belief in the popularity of this stone was due to its untapped power. These individuals were secretly aware of the powerful effect Lapis Lazuli could have on the brain. Through deep meditation, they were able to understand their thoughts and sculpt their actions based on the knowledge that Lapis Lazuli provided them.Lazurite, the main mineral component of Lapis Lazuli is a high vibrational stone. It opens up our third eye, promoting ascension, higher knowledge, and truth-seeking. These attributes combined with other mineral impurities (such as Pyrite, Calcite, and Sodalite) are all capable of reigniting different traits of who we are. For example, Pyrite inclusions in Lazurite assist in both processing your thoughts and manifesting them into reality. The Calcite variations will help awaken the mystical energies that lay dormant inside of you. Lastly, Sodalite will bolden your mental insight to provide a true understanding of how your thoughts are connected to your emotional body. Ideas are a powerful vibration that we emit and when we understand where they are coming from, we can begin to control them." - TheCrystalCouncil.com

Bronzite: "Bronzite is known as the “stone of courtesy” due to its energies promoting love, equality, and protection to anyone within its environment. Our root and sacral chakras become activated and strengthened when working with this stone and will help bring drive, focus, determination, and control back into your life. This stone helps you get back on track and focused on what’s most important to you, and not everyone around you. Bronzite instills the courage from deep within to stand up for yourself and take assertive action to get things done. When trying new things or opportunities such as a job interview, vacation, or even a date, we recommend carrying or wearing a piece of Bronzite on you. It works to keep you grounded and comfortable in situations that would commonly cause you anxiety and distress." - TheCrystalCouncil.com
Onyx: "Onyx is a stone that offers up powerful vibrations of protection, strength, focus, and willpower. This stone is here to continuously push you forward in your life. By activating your root, solar plexus, and third eye chakras, one can fully ground themselves to Earth. Not only will Onyx give you a jolt of energy to get up and start pursuing your dreams, but also protect you on your new journey.
