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.
The word garnet comes from a Latin word meaning “seed like” in reference to the red pomegranate seed it can resemble. Garnet is said to promote self empowerment, helping to fortify the wearer, bringing courage, strength, and hope.
Rose Quartz is known as the “Stone of Love”, unconditional and infinite. It attracts love towards you and supports existing partnerships, bringing harmony and trust.

Rose quartz is a great emotional healer, it aids in opening your heart to be receptive to love, helping to sooth past pain and releasing unexpressed emotions. Helps remove negative emotions, and replaces it with loving energy.
