Other information – Serpentine is a green mineral. It is found in New Zealand, China, Afghanistan, South Africa, and USA. Amulets have been worn to ward off snakebite or poisoning. It is said to stimulate success and courage. Unakite is an opaque Granite with a make-up of Quartz, Feldspar, and Green Epidote. It is named after the Unaka Mountain in southwest USA, as most of the Unakite discovered has been at this site. It is also found in Austria, the French Alps, Russia, South Africa, Brazil, China, Italy, Mozambique, and Mexico. It is said to be a stone that is helpful in gardening, a good protection stone, and is alleged to bring the unconditional love of humanity. Coral is a beautiful gem from the sea. Coral reefs grow in colonies in warm ocean waters. The highest quality Coral is even in color and found in the Pacific Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. Coral jewelry has been found in ancient Egyptian sites and prehistoric European burials. The Roman’s felt it held the power to ward off evil and danger. Swarovski are precisely cut crystals.

Cultured pearls are considered to offer the power of love, money, protection, and luck.
