Crystals are known to have healing properties based on their metaphysical make-up. Our home country, Kenya, is abundant in these natural minerals. Ethically mined and left raw, untouched & natural, we design jewellery with these crystals to bring you just a touch of magic.

Blue Lace Agate

keep calm & carry on

Historically, Agate has been discovered with the artifacts of Neolithic people,  and was used as healing amulets and ornamentation dating back to Babylon.  Its medicinal uses continued through the ancient Greek and Egyptian civilizations, and spread throughout Africa. Metaphysically, Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a  slower frequency than other stones, but is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence.

Blue Lace Agate is a stone of communication, helping those who have difficulty being heard by others, or who need confidence and articulation to share their truths. It provides clarity of thought and unwavering intent in regards to what matters most. [Simmons, 6] Blue Lace Agate is a Stone of the Diplomat, assisting communication in situations were angry words must be avoided, but clear understanding is necessary. [Ahsian, 7]

Blue Lace Agate is a variety of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. It is usually banded in layers of predominantly light blue, striped with brighter blues, whites, and even brown threads of color. Agate is sometimes called the earth rainbow because, in its various forms, the concentric bands in nature form nearly every color the earth can produce, including a colorless form.

Blue Lace Agate has a soft,  soothing elegance; like sky-blue waters released from winter's  grasp. Its graceful, circular design has a  stimulating, positive effect on emotions and attitude.  It is not a stone of protection, but rather of encouragement and support. Its circular flowing energy calms, uplifts and elevates. 

Blue Lace Agate's calm, centering properties also aid those who are unable to stop talking, or who speak before thinking about the consequences of their words. It encourages discernment about the thoughts they share and the beauty of inner silence. It helps those who have trouble keeping a secret, and promotes understanding in the sanctity of trust. 

Agate promotes inner stability, composure, and maturity. Its warm, protective properties encourage security and self-confidence. It is a great crystal to use during pregnancy. Agate also helps new mothers avoid the "baby blues" sometimes experienced after giving birth, and an Agate jewel worn between the breasts encourages lactation.

Brandberg 

 

Amethyst

the ultimate healer

Brandberg Amethyst is a variety of amethyst that can only be found in two places in the world : Namibia and Kenya. Brandberg, or "Fire Mountain" is the Afrikaans, Dutch & German translation given to the stone because of the vibrant orange colour that emanates from the mountain in the Namib desert on which it forms. This area is considered sacred by the indigenous Damara people. The plains around the Brandberg region are full of the mysterious thousand-year-old Welwitschia mirabilis, a sacred plant in a sacred place.

Brandberg Amethyst has inclusions of smokey and clear quartz, with streaks the colour of egg yolk often running through it. Darker stones have a higher inclusion of amethyst, making each crystal unique. Each stone's individual alchemy will naturally attract the wearer to it based on your needs.

A powerful healer, Brandberg Amethyst is unparalleled in its multi-dimensional properties.

It is referred to as a master crystal, speeding recovery from illness or injury, providing aid in overcoming harmful addictions, and restoring balance, health and vitality to the system. It is highly beneficial for energetic depletion, bringing clarity and increased brain function, as well as renewed vigor and a sense of peace and joy. 

Brandberg crystals are also Earth-healers, found where powerful meridians feed the soul energy of the planet. Their clear, radiant energy is a key to planetary healing and the expansion process, often finding their way to spiritually advanced Light workers. They are excellent for blocking geopathic stress and negative environmental energies, eliminating harmful effects of radiation or radioactivity, and are great crystals for clearing houses, buildings or anywhere that feels hostile.

Wearer experience: "I went through a traumatic incident that cause me to have a panic attack every time I got into my car. I carried my Brandberg Amethyst with me, rubbing them between my palms until I felt a sense of calm. I was able to get through driving across town, and finally got over the fear I had associated with driving. Funnily enough, the crystals then disappeared, which is said to happen when the crystal's work is done!"

Clear Quartz

the master crystal

Ordinary yet extraordinary, colorful and clear, Quartz crystals are the most common and abundant in the world, comprising the largest and most diverse family in the mineral kingdom. "From ancient times to the present day, quartz crystals have been a source of Light to mankind. Highly valued by spiritual leaders and healers as well as scientists, the unique attributes of quartz have played a key role in mankind' evolutionary development."

Clear Quartz, pure silicon dioxide, is also called Rock Crystal or Ice Crystal, from the Greek word "krystallos", meaning "ice", because this crystal was believed to be water frozen so hard it could never thaw. 

For all its variety, when most people speak of "crystals", they are usually referring to Rock Crystal (Clear Quartz), the six-sided prisms of pure light and energy known as the Perfect Jewel. In its sparkling light is contained the entire color spectrum.

Throughout history, Clear Quartz has been valued by nearly every civilization as far back as Atlantis and Lemuria, where the sun's power was believed to be harnessed through a crystal as a source of solar energy refraction. They, along with Native American Indians, African tribes, ancient Egyptians, Aztecs, Romans, Scots and countless other cultures used Clear Quartz in diagnostic healing, meditations and spiritual development, as religious objects and in funerary rites, and to dispel evil and magical enchantments. 

In the metaphysical world, Clear Quartz crystals are the supreme gift of Mother Earth. Even the smallest is imbued with the properties of a master healer teacher. Ancients believed these stones to be alive, taking a breath once every hundred years or so, and many cultures thought them to be incarnations of the Divine.

Resonating at the level of an individual's needs, Clear Quartz also amplifies whatever energy or intent is programmed into it, and continues to broadcast that energy throughout the world and into the etheric realms. This may accelerate the fulfillment of one's prayers, intensify healing or spiritual growth, or simply allow the crystal to hold a pattern of energy long enough and strongly enough for the manifestation of a goal to occur.

 

The same properties of energy amplification, programmability and memory also make Clear Quartz the most versatile and multidimensional stone in the mineral kingdom for healing, meditation, expansion of consciousness, communication with guides, past-life recall, attracting love or prosperity, or virtually any purpose. However, with this power comes responsibility. To benefit from Rock Crystal's blessings, one must feel in harmony with it and deserve its gifts. Intent other than for good inevitably brings harm back on oneself. 

For ongoing personal energy, carry Clear Quartz as a tumblestone or touch as needed for an instant lift. Add Quartz crystals to bath water, or make an elixir to drink or splash on pulse points by soaking Clear Quartz crystals in water from first light to midday. In the workplace, use as a filter against negativity and to transform critical words.

Clear Quartz produces a force field of healing negative ions while clearing the surroundings of positive ions, protecting the aura. It dispels static electricity, and cancels out the harmful effects of radiation and radioactivity. 

Clear Quartz brings strength and clarity to the intellect, aiding concentration and memory retention, and filtering out distractions. Its hypnotic quality is conducive to sleep, helping one to understand the messages and lessons conveyed during the dream state. It is also a respected stone for death, included in many cultures in funeral rites and placed in tombs, urns, and sepulchres.

Green Aventurine

the stone of good luck

Known as the "Gambler's Stone", Green Aventurine is considered a stone of good fortune. It is also nicknamed the “Stone of Opportunity,” thought to be the luckiest of all crystals, especially in manifesting prosperity and wealth, or for increasing favor in competitions or games of chance. 

 

This beautiful stone, however, is not merely an attractor of luck, but one that aligns conditions so “opportunity” is inevitable. Green Aventurine releases old patterns, habits and disappointments so new growth can take place. It brings optimism and a zest for life, allowing one to move forward with confidence and to embrace change. It enhances one’s creativity and motivation, and encourages perseverance in maneuvering life’s obstacles. It also reinforces one’s decisiveness and amplifies leadership qualities, injecting a sense of humor and openness to the ideas of others. 

 

Green Aventurine carries a strong connection to Earth and the devic kingdom, providing a better understanding and appreciation of nature and its soothing vibrations upon the mind and body. It is an excellent stone for gridding houses or gardens against geopathic stress. 

Wearing Aventurine also absorbs electromagnetic smog and guards against environmental pollution. Taped to a cell phone, it protects against its emanations.

Aventurine may be made into an elixir to drink or used in ablutions by soaking a stone fragment in demineralized water overnight (we recommend the indirect method). It is highly beneficial for fighting eczema, rosacea, juvenile acne, and other skin problems.

Blue Kyanite

good vibes only

Kyanite is one of two minerals in the world that neither accumulates nor retains negative energy. It's Greek name, Kuanos, means "deep blue". It is also referred to as Disthene, meaning "two strengths".

Kyanite is a wonderful stone to use on a daily basis. Since it is blue in colour, it is particularly slimulating to the throat and third eye chakras, it allows the wearer to open up to psychic energies and be self-assured in one's opinions.

Kyanite instantly aligns all the chakras and subtle bodies, clearing the pathways and meridians. It restores Qi to the physical body and promotes a calming effect to the whole being.

Green Kyanite

good vibes only

Green Kyanite connects with the truth of the heart. The Heart Chakra is located near the center of the breastbone and regulates our interaction with the external world. It controls what we embrace and what we resist, giving us the balancing ability to be ourselves within the environment. Green crystal energy is used to resolve blockages and to re-balance the heart chakra, helping us understand our own needs and emotions clearly.  We can deal with the ebbs and flows of emotional relationships, understand their cyclic nature, and accept the changes.

Rhodonite

center your heart

Rhodonite was first discovered in the 1790’s in the Ural Mountains of Russia near Maloe Sidelnikovo, and was called orletz by the locals, Russian for “the Eagle Stone” because people began to notice eagles in the region often carried small pieces of the stone to their nests. It soon became tradition to place small Rhodonite stones in their babies’ cradles as well. The custom was later extended to giving Rhodonite to travelers as a protective stone.

An extraordinary stone of the Heart Chakra, Rhodonite shares more than the lovely rose color of its sister stone, Rhodochrosite. While both lay bare the emotional wounds and scars of the past for healing, restoration and reinvigoration, Rhodonite, richer in color with effects that are deeper and more lasting, takes up the process and empowers one to reach one’s full potential, focusing one’s gifts and energies outward for the betterment of all. It is a stone of purpose, cooperation and community, altruism and generosity of spirit. It is a talisman to further the “brotherhood of humanity.”

Rhodonite is highly recognized as an emotional healer and for bringing one back to center during stressful times. It is a crucial “first aid stone” for calming emotional shock and panic, and provides grounded support during the process of dealing with painful issues. Rhodonite has a strong resonance with forgiveness and giving the soul the love it needs in order to heal. It gently releases self-destructive tendencies, festering resentments and anger, and allows one to see both sides of an issue to reach conciliation. It encourages the love of others, and aligning with the spirituality of the universe in order to recognize one’s purpose and how one’s gifts and abilities may be used to effect change on Earth.

Tourmaline

the radiation repeller

The talisman of protection, tourmaline was often gifted to those going on new journeys to repel danger and bad company. Today this stone is still revered as a premier talisman of protection, a psychic shield deflecting and dispelling negative energies, entities, or destructive forces. It guards against radiation and environmental pollutants, and is highly useful in purifying and neutralizing one’s own negative thoughts and internal conflicts, and turning them into positive, usable energy

Tourmaline is electric in nature, and emits negative ions, which is present in the air when it is incredibly clean. It also radiates alpha waves; the same frequency our brains cycle at when we are in a state of calm and deep relaxation. The combination of this repels radiation that is produced from cellular devices & electric equipment.

Excellent for bringing grounding energies to the body, tourmaline relates most closely to the root chakra, which is associated with our basic survival needs such as abundance & health..

Kenya hosts both green & black Tourmaline, both of which feature in our crystal collection.
