Some people feel that there are certain properties of natural stones which promote calmness and wellbeing. Whether this is true or not, it is also important to feel special and jewellery and decoration make us feel special.
The stones used in our “Diabeadies®” are Amazonite and Amethsyt which are both said to have calming properties.
The goal of Diabetes Counselling Online is connecting people to better wellbeing. These beads represent that connection, with a fantastic and beautifully crafted thread running around the beads – signifying that connection.
Amazonite is said to calm one’s emotions and soothe nerves, and to enhance creativity and the ability to express oneself. Romantics claim that the beautiful green of the Amazon jungle is reflected in the stone that bears its name. A Brazilian legend tells that the Amazons, the legendary female warriors, gave green stones to the men who visited them. This was believed to be Amazonite, but was probably nephrite (jade).
Amazonite exposes its beauty best in daylight, more precisely in the hours after sunrise and before sunset, when the light is warm and soft. It is also said to lessen stress and self-defeating behaviors by calming the nervous system, and building self-esteem.
Amethyst is the most precious stone within the quartz group. Since purple is considered a royal color, amethyst, the transparent purple quartz, enjoyed an historical importance as an insignia of power. Fine amethysts are featured in the British Crown Jewels and were also a favorite of Catherine the Great and Egyptian royalty.
Amethyst is also a stone for meditation. It is said to be excellent for moving the mind into the alpha brain wave cycle smoothly and rapidly, thus making for a great meditation crystal. Probably that is the reason why amethyst has always been known as a sleeping aid down through the centuries.
It apparently exerts a calming effect behind the scenes; helps one to make judgments and carry out responsibilities. Its calming properties are said to help to moderate high strung temperaments and encourage the binding of the physical to the intellectual and beyond, into the spiritual realms; to stimulate the intellect, but temper it with a universal sense of compassion and connection.
