Stone jewellery is one of the high points of our catalog. In fact, this whole project started with Brazilian natural gemstones and crystals. Not only because of their beauty and naturality, but also because of their incredible power.
How crystals form
Crystals are minerals formed repeating patterns of atoms, developing over thousands of years. As they grow, differences in natural characteristics such as temperature and chemical composition affect their appearance generating fascinating variations.
The repeating chemical structure of crystals is said to invest them with a kind of memory. This means that crystals have the power to hold energies, also known as ‘programming a crystal.’
You do not need any magic or special connection with God – all you need is intention and focus. When you transfer an emotion by holding it, the crystal will remember it and permeate any environment in which it is placed. Crystals can remember negative as well as positive energies and so will sometimes need to be cleansed.
Different crystals have different energies and properties, and between them can affect mental, physical, spiritual and emotional aspects of ourselves. Holding the right crystal at the right time can bring about a change in our attitude and well-being.
Choosing the right crystal for you
The most important thing is to be receptive and allow yourself to be drawn to a stone that will have meaning for you. However, due to the differences between them, a little information about the property of each crystal can be very helpful.
