Rock Crystal is commonly regarded in shamanistic practice as a "light-stone", and instrument of clairvoyance representing a level intermediate between the visible and the invisible. Rock Crystal was traditionally used by Australian Aborigines and the Prairie Indians of North America as a talisman and to produce visions. The Navajo believed it to be Rock Crystal that first caused the Sun to cast its light upon the world. In ancient times it was believed that Rock Crystal was ice that had frozen too hard to melt.
Rose Quartz has been carved since ancient times, and in modern times it has been used by “crystals healers”, who attribute the properties of unconditional love and emotional healing to it if it is placed against the skin.
Pearl is a concretion formed by a mollusc and consisting of the same material as the mollusc's shell, which is principally the mineral aragonite. In addition to aragonite, the shell contains small amounts of conchiolin, a horn-like organic substance; together they called nacre, or mother-of-pearl.
Cultured pearls are those that have been grown on a pearl farm. Tiny sphere of mother-of-pearl is implanted in the mantle of the nacre-producing mollusc, which is then placed in the waters of the farm. The oyster forms a pearl around the tiny sphere, which is then harvested up to two years later.
