Prescious stones are minerals distinguished for their durability, colour, brilliance, transparency, and rarity. It is above all their rarity which distinguishes them from semi-precious stones. Nowadays many stones can be imitated synthetically. Fashion plays a part in deciding the current value of a stone. In the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and chrysolite were the most highly prized stones.

Crystal-clear fresh air jewelry, mobiles and metal art are best when universal stones and materials are used. Go see Colour waves

MAN AND HIS SYMBOLS, Carl G. Jung's 1964 masterpiece about dreamer and dreaming, discusses the function of dreams, recurrent dreaming, and dream comparisons. After considering the words of both The Oracle and The Architect in THE MATRIX RELOADED, the wisdom in the pages of this beautifully compiled study have even more meaning today - the morning after!

From the chapter titled, The Self: symbols of totality

"...According to Christian ecclesiastical symbolism, Christ is "the stone that the builders rejected," which became "the head of the corner" (Luke XX:17). Alternately he is called "the spiritual rock from which the water of life springs" (1 Cor. X:4). Medieval alchemists, who searched for the secret of matter in a pre-scientific way, hoping to find God in it, or at least the working of divine activity believed that this secret was embodied in their famous "philosopher's stone." But some of the alchemists dimly perceived that their much sought after stone was s symbol of something that can be found only within the psyche of man. An old Arabian alchemist, Morienus, said: "This thing [the philosophers' stone] is extracted from you: you are it's mineral and one can find it in you; or, to put it more clearly, they [the alchemists] take it from you. If you recognize this, the love and approbation of the stone will grow within you. Know that this is true without doubt."

The alchemical stone (the lapis) symbolizes something that can never be lost or dissolved, something eternal that some alchemists compared to the mystical experience of God within one's own soul. It usually takes prolonged suffering to burn away all the superfluous psychic elements concealing the stone. But some profound inner experience of the Self does occur to most people at least once in a lifetime. From the psychological standpoint, a genuinely religious attitude consists of an effort to discover this unique experience, and gradually to keep in tune with it (it is relevant that a stone is itself something permanent), so that the Self becomes an inner partner toward whom one's attention is continually turned.

The fact that this highest and most frequent symbol of the self is an object of inorganic matter points to yet another field of inquiry and speculation: that is, the still unknown relationship between what we call the unconscious psyche and what we call "matter" - a mystery with which psychosomatic medicine endeavors to grapple. In studying this still undefined and unexplained connection (it may prove to be that "psyche" and "matter" are actually the same phenomenon, one observed from "within" and the other from "without"), Dr. Jung put forward a new concept that he called synchronicity. This term means a "meaningful coincidence3" of outer and inner events that are not themselves causally connected. The emphasis lies on the word "meaningful."

.... As soon as we notice that certain types of event "like" to cluster together at certain times, we begin to understand the attitude {transcriber note: in summary, the reader is referred to associations of varied and sundry things under heaven so they are linked, in stead of the question about what causes/sparks an event},

One can see much the same underlying theme in astrology, and in the way various civilizations have depended on consulting oracles and paying attention to omens. All these are attempts to provide an explanation of coincidence that is different from one that depends on straightforward cause and effect.

In creating the concept of synchronicity, Dr. Jung sketched a way in which we might penetrate deeper into the inter-relation of psyche and matter. And it is precisely toward such a relation that the symbol of the stone seems to point. But this is still a completely open and insufficiently explored matter, with which future generations of psychologists and physicists must deal."

A considerable number of rings made of red jasper, red faience, and red glass have been found in the tombs of Egypt; all are uninscribed and all have a gap in them. Some believe they were to prevent, or protect during, conflict or work near enemies, or to prevent, slow or control bleeding.

The Philosopher’s Stone
[traditionally associated with fire]

By the end of the 16th century, medicine was divided into warring camps of Paracelsians and anti-Paracelsians, and the alchemists began to move en masse into pharmacy.
Paracelsian pharmacy was to lead, by a devious path, to modern chemistry, but gold making still persisted although overshadowed by this development. In the 15th century it entered its most picturesque period, for then the personal reminiscences of alchemists began to appear. Most famous was the Paris notary Nicolas Flamel, who dreamed of an occult book, subsequently found it, and succeeded in deciphering it with the aid of a Jewish scholar learned in the mystic Hebrew writings known as the Kabbala. In 1382 Flamel succeeded in the "Great Work" (gold making), evidence of which is the fact that he became rich and made donations to churches.

What Jewel Are You? Emerald
Emeralds are beautiful and delicate. You are open and honest, easily giving of yourself to help others. You’re not scared to share your secrets, even though you are quite sensitive and can be easily hurt by those around you. It’s a risk you’re willing to take to be connected with people. You let everything in, the good and the bad. You get excited by new ideas and disappointed when things don’t work out. Your excitement is energizing and inspiring, but it might be smart to be a little more protective sometimes.

Turquoise: To the prehistoric Indian of Mexico and the Pacific Southwest, turquoise, worn on the body or used in ceremonies, always signified the god of the sky alive in the earth, and in that way, it acted as a divining stone. Turquoise helped to restore energy to the earth after harvest. Turquoise is believed to relax the mind and relieve tension, calming the emotions and easing stress.

Jet is a traditional protection against the Evil Eye and alleviated pains in the stomach. In the British Isles, it was additionally believed to protect people from thunderstorms, devils, poison, failure in bodily strength. The Irish housewife burnt jet during her husband’s absence to ensure his safety. In Italy a jet beetle was a protection and the amulet Mano Cornuta was, and still is, often made of jet. The little disks of jet which have been found in India and Egypt also probably served as amulets against the Evil Eye.

Breastplate of the High Priest: The transcription of the text is correct, but matching ancient names for the twelve stones with their modern identity can prove difficult. The source for jewel-marked entries is [I think] Robert Graves. Read THE WHITE GODDESS for appropriate metals. Graves remarks the Breastplate traditionally is made entirely of gold in honour of the Sun.

The cryptocrystalline varieties of quartz may be separated into two types; fibrous and microgranular. Chalcedony is the general term applied to the fibrous cryptocrystalline varieties. Agate is an example of a fibrous cryptocystalline banded chalcedony variety of quartz [see Aries]. Carnelian, Chrysoprase and bloodstone are other chalcedony varieties. Chert is the general term applied to the granular cryptocrystalline varieties of quartz, of which flint and Jasper are examples.

Universal Stones in Any Aeon
Jade, Turquoise, and Lapis Lazuli are universal stones, applicable for use within a full spectrum range of energy management/work, however they are selected specifically when skull senses [six and seven] are a topic of research. These three stones are most adaptable for all signs of the zodiac, usually in conjunction with one of the power stones allocated to the ray under consideration. The colour may vary, however, so check to be certain the vibration of the stone you choose partners well with the sign. For example, Jade may be medium to deep green, nephrite green, or white. Turquoise may be blue or white. Lapis Lazuli may be deep blue or purplish-blue.

Native American Indians use Jade and Turquoise together for restoration of energy, particularly when addressing the new year celebration of ‘rebirth.’ Earth energies that run with, or are superimposed on, ley lines, solar lines, and water lines, are reinvigorated by infusion of energy via small grains of Jade and Turquoise. Examples of Jade and Turquoise jewelry, long utilized for the same purpose in relation to the human temple, provide evidence both stones were favorite primary raw materials for a multitude of amulets in ancient civilizations.

* The Zodiac Ring: This consists usually of a flat hoop, plain or ribbed, of gold on which the Signs of the Zodiac, made of gold wire, are soldered; above and below are soldered plain or scrolled flanges. Few, if any, of them are older than the XIXth century. The metal workers of the Gold Coast used to come to travelers and make these rings in their presence. Having obtained two or three sovereigns from the traveler they melted them with a blow pipe and fashioned a ring from them. In the ‘fifties’ and ‘sixties’ of the last century several were brought to Liverpool where they found a ready market. The forms of the signs were taken from Arabic manuscripts.
