Apatite is made up of phosphate minerals, its name is derived from Greek meaning “to be misleading” as it is easily mistaken for other minerals. It is a stone which is said to bring insight and the expansion of knowledge to the wearer; clears mental confusion, negativity and frustrations, allowing you to find truth. This stone helps with communication, enhancing openness and social ease, while promoting a charitable attitude for the greater good.
Clear Quartz or Rock Quartz is known as the “master healer”; it brings balance to the mind, and enhances the energy of other stones. Considered one of the most versatile stones it aids in mediation, attracts, love and prosperity and increases the expansion of consciousness. Clear quartz stimulates positive thinking, and feelings, which in turn betters your perception of the world.
Tanzanite is the purple and blue variety of Zoisite, and is only found in a small mining area at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, hence its name. It has an effect of trichroism, where it can appear blue, violet and burgundy depending on its crystal orientation and different lighting. Tanzanite is a stone of transformation; it lets you better know your deeper self, so you can move beyond your boundaries and limitations, harnessing your inner strength to achieve your goals. This stone is also thought to encourage confidence, self-control, clarity of thought and strategic thinking.
