Highly revered in Tibet, a Turquoise stone was carried throughout one's entire life. It was exchanged as currency & the finest stones were considered more valuable than gold.

Mahogany Obsidian

Obsidian forms from volcanic activity and is made of the same minerals as granite. As it cools, the bubbles in obsidian create intricate and decorative designs such as snowflakes or mahogany colored patterns. Obsidian has been used for tool-making since at least 21,000 B.C. and in jewelry for many centuries. The American Indians considered obsidian a precious mineral and to the ancient Aztecs it was the warrior's stone, used to protect them from evil.

BALTIC AMBER begins as sticky resin oozed from ancient pine trees. Over time, through a process of heat and pressure, the resin hardens and fossilizes to become stone. Amber increases in value with the rarity and perfection of an entrapped object. Deposits have been found that range between 360 and one million years old and belong between the Carboniferous and Pleistocene geological periods. Amber can range in color from dark brown to a light almost clear lemon yellow, and is sometimes color enhanced through a heat process finishing what nature started. Most of the natural Amber is from the region of the Baltic Sea or the Dominican Republic.

COPPER- It is commonly known that copper has been used in bracelets to help those with arthritis.
