Its been a busy few days! Had a lovely meal with hubby and the boys for our Wedding Anniversary on Saturday though. (11 years, they have flown by, we'll have been together for 13 years in December, good job I don't think its unlucky!)
I had a new bead delivery this morning, I love getting new stones. I was particularly pleased with this one as one of the two strings were one of my favourties. Ocean Jasper. The other, Oak Jasper is a new one I haven't had before, lovely. ( Oak Jasper on the left, Ocean Jasper on the right)
I don't know alot about the Oak Jasper but the Ocean Jasper (sometimes called Ocean Agate) is only found in Madagascar, it is found in the sea at a particular tide, how special is that! I love all of the different patterns and colours, each bead ranges from cream, red, brown, green, purple and the shapes and patterns are incredible.
Ocean Jasper - SiO2
Mentally - Fortifies self-respect, emotional release, natural resistance.
Physically - Muscle tone, veins, skin disorders, digestion.
Chakra: Third Eye, Higher Heart.
(Due to its colouring and composition I would think that the Oak Jasper has similar properties)
I also made an Amethyst Bracelet in the same style as the Carnelian one the other week. It is now listed in my Misi Store
Amethyst - SiO2+(Al,Fe,Ca,Mg,Li,Na)
Defined as a mineral that ‘makes a person better, disperses bad thoughts ,and brings good commonsense and makes one mild and gentle’.
Mentally - Relieves sadness and grief. Encourages sobriety and awareness. Overcomes addiction.
Physically - works with: nervous complaints, diseases of the lungs and respiratory tract, skin blemishes and intestinal complaints. Relieves pain and releases tension, especially headaches.
Chakra: Third Eye, Crown and Higher Crown
Don't forget to enter my competition for the Carnelian or Turquoise earrings, there is still plenty of time so don't miss out.
