Crystal Jewelry
This faceted clear quartz crystal follows an ancient tradition.  Since Ancient times, 2000 years ago, crystal has been regarded as coming from the “highest heavenly light”.  It was called “Krystallos” (Greek) which means “Frozen Matter”, as it looked so like ice, and it felt cool to the touch.  Old scriptures say, if you come to the temple with a crystal in hand, your prayers will be heard.  Crystals were used as healing tools, in rituals and were embedded in scepters to protect and enhance the power of kings.  Sacred relics were encapsulated in carved rock crystal shrines.  Clear quartz is said to be a special energy transmitter.  It enhances and absorbs energy and helps to focus.  It clears negativity and raises one’s vibration towards clarity.  Wear this faceted crystal for protection and healing. 
To clean the crystal-energy, rinse the crystal in running water or smudge it with sage.

Yin Yang Jewelry
The universal opposites of Earth and Heaven, called Yin and Yang, symbolize the energies of man and woman.  Yin-Yang is of Chinese origin.  There are many interacting forces, i.e., light and dark, male and female, positive and negative, etc.  Each exists together in balance, each one containing a part of the other.

Ankh Pendants
The Egyptian Hieroglyph “Ankh” meant both “Life” and “Mirror.”  It became the symbol of eternal life and was depicted in countless frescoes, reliefs, and on furniture and jewelry.  Kings and gods hold it in their hands as sceptre and sign of their immortality.  Many people of all cultures wear the Ankh sign today as a reminder of their own immortality and of their spiritual and cultural roots in an ancient, highly developed culture such as the Egyptian.
