Onyx is found in California, Uruguay, Brazil, and India. Legend says that one day while Venus was sleeping, Cupid cut her fingernails and left the clippings scattered on the ground.  Because no part of a heavenly body can die, the gods turned them into stone. Onyx is known to separate. It can help with negative emotions such as grief or sorrow. It is worn to help ward off negativity that is cast at you. It has even been known to encourage healthy egotism. Mother-Of-Pearl is a material produced by some mollusks as an inner shell layer. The material is strong, resilient, and iridescent. Mother Of Pearl has a gorgeous glow and can be iridescent hues of pearly white, clear, and features hints of multicolored purples, blues, greens, pinks, and golds. Just like waves washing up and down the shore, Mother Of Pearl helps to give one an overall calming effect stirring the life energy of your cells, and encourages relaxation. It helps with descision making clarity, imagination, and adaptability. Spiny Oyster Shells are harvested in the Gulf Of California and on the east coast of the US. Spiny Oyster Shells are very difficult to harvest, however, the orange toned shells are the easiest to harvest due to the shallower depths where they are found. The shell is also found in colors of purple, red, and yellow. The shells carry the wisdom of the sea and encourage a sense of understanding and patience. It also offers comfort and peace of mind from the depths of the ocean. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is mined in Globe, Arizona. Originally, the mine was producing copper and gold, however, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise has been mined there since. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is known for how few inclusions it has. The stone has a "pure" color. The color of Turquoise is determined by the mineral oxidation. The more iron, the bluer the Turquoise, and the more copper the stone contains, the greener the appearance. Sterling Silver is a precious metal that contains a mixture of 92.5 percent Fine Silver and 7.5 percent of other metals. The other metals have little effect on the Sterling Silver's value. The most commonly used metal is Copper because it makes the metal alloy more durable and strong.
