Labradorite

Labradorite is a silicate mineral, which is a type of granite and has a rare property of iridescence - an inner iridescent glow.

The beautiful stone got its name from its first birthplace - the Labrador Peninsula in North America. This gem is very popular for its rich hue - an amazing play of colors from blue to deep purple gives Labradorite a rich texture, depth and volume - the stone seems to come to life under the influence of light sources.

Labradorite is able to get out of depression, improves mood and spiritual strength, helps to awaken sleeping talents, relieves pain and reduces stress levels. The stone is great for the representatives of the zodiac signs Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio.

In the 18th century in Europe, jewelry with Labradorite was in honor among the aristocracy. And in Russia, the apartments of the royal families and the St. Petersburg nobility were decorated with this unique stone.

Lobradorite, in my opinion, will look great in a big Rose gold shape. In some, a large piece where big stone can show itself off, perfectly accented with Rose gold. Look, see for yourself!


Amazonite

Amazonite is a silicate mineral of a bright bluish-green color.

The Amazonite got its name from the deepest river on Earth and due to a tribe of beautiful female warriors. According to ancient myths, this gem is a symbol of female beauty and independence, it also gives its owner courage and tranquility. The mineral is suitable for almost all women, because it is associated with the Moon - the astrological symbol of the feminine principle.

Howlite

Howlite is a gray-white mineral with brown and black veins, characterized by an amazing silky shine.

Howlite was first found by Canadian geologist Henry Gowa about 150 years ago, who gave the stone his own name. The stone is a talisman for pregnant women, students and scientists. According to the laws of astrology, the stone is ideal for Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn. 

Despite that Howlite was discovered in the late 19th century, it has been known since ancient times.

Charoite

Charoite is one of the rarest minerals of a rich lilac color. It has only one place of birth - the territory of the northern taiga in Russia.

Charoite received a name in honor of its place of birth - the Chara River in Yakutia. Until the middle of the twentieth century, humanity did not even know about the existence of this stone. For twenty years people could not give it a name, because American and Russian scientists fought for the right to own it. 

Charoite reinforces the immune system, stabilizes the nervous system, protects against the evil eye. Charoite is the stone of Venus, therefore it suits all signs born under this planet. It is also believed that the stone is suitable for energetic and creative people, regardless of the sign of the zodiac. 

There are many reserves of stone, but the geographical location of its deposits makes the gem difficult to access, and its extraction is expensive. Therefore, those people who want to possess the stone are perspicacious. For example, Pope John Paul II, being in full health, ordered a slab of lilac Charoite for his future sarcophagus, and so it was.

And if one day you buy a jewelry with Charoitel, you will always carry on yourself a piece of the Russian soul.


Black Onyx

Onyx is ideal for Leo, it helps them get rid of excessive aggression. Also, the gem will be useful for Capricorns, Taurus, Libra and Virgo. Black Onyx has a very ancient and rich history of use, and it was even used to decorate the throne of King Solomon.
