Moonstone is strongly connected to the moon and feminine energy. The gemstone promotes intuition and fertility and has a calming influence on emotions. The gemstone also has a strong effect on sleep and dreams, helping with insomnia and to remember dreams better.
In ancient times, moonstone gemstones were thought to be created by moon rays. The most evident quality is their adularescence, that is the milky look typical of semi-transparent and transparent gems. Their exclusive internal structure and microcrystal inclusions create a dense appearance that is reflected across the whole surface. The moonstones from MRS BEE are of the absolute best AAA quality.
Rose quartz is one of the many quartz varieties used as a gemstone material. It always appears hazy to translucent due to microscopic fibrous inclusions. Rose quartz is ideal to celebrate a 5th wedding anniversary. Also known as the ‘love stone’, it was said to balance emotions as well as heal anger and disappointment. All Rose quartz mounted by MRS BEE is clear and untreated.
The name, initially used to describe other gems, comes from the island of Topazos, in the Red Sea. We only started using it as the Topaz gem we know today in the 8th century. The ancient Greeks believed that Topaz gave them strength. During the Renaissance in Europe, people thought that Topaz could break magic spells and dispel anger. For centuries, many people in India have believed that wearing topaz above the heart assures long life, beauty, and intelligence. Pure Topaz is colourless and transparent, known as allochromatic, and trace elements such as chromium, iron and manganese are responsible for its various tints.
Clear crystal, Rock Crystal or rhinestone was the first gemstone described as crystal. The ancient Greeks called it 'Crystalos' which means 'permanent ice’ because they thought that the ice had frozen so solidly that it could not melt. Rhinestone is also considered to be the stone of light. Some Indian tribes gave a rhinestone to the dead to take the soul to the light. The clearer the stone, the higher the quality.
Green Quartz is a stone of transformative energies. It transmutes negative energy into positive energy without releasing it into the atmosphere. Green Quartz is excellent for stimulating creativity and intuition. It can transform negative energy into positive energy, can bring success and prosperity and attracts abundance. ‘Green amethyst’ is actually ‘green quartz’. Amethyst itself is purple quartz. Gemstones are usually known by their mineral name, such as ‘diamond’, ‘beryl’, or ‘emerald’. Some stones, however, have become known by their colour.
Turquoise is arguably the longest-used ornamental stone. Turquoise beads have been found in Iraq dating back to 5000 BC. The Egyptians excavated the stone in the Sinai desert in 3200 BC. It is the national stone of Iran and was the most precious stone of Tibet for many centuries. About 1000 years ago, the American Indians began to mine and process turquoise. The gemstone has been found in graves from Argentina to the south of the United States. Today, the best turquoise comes from Iran, Afghanistan, Australia, Tibet and the Southwestern United States.
Turquoise is a protective gemstone, bringing harmony and balance in life. It is used as a talisman.
MRS BEE uses the Sleeping Beauty turquoise in its jewellery. The Sleeping Beauty turquoise mine in Arizona USA was named after the mountain range where it is located, which, from a distance, is said to resemble a sleeping woman with her arms crossed.
