Malachite is a scarcer material and the most important producer is the Congo (formerly known as Zaire). Malachite is indeed one of the most popular green gems and is frequently used in gemstone rings, - it is very-well suited for other types of gemstone jewelry, including gemstone earrings, pins and brooches, as well as in necklaces and fine gemstone pendants. Malachite, with its beautiful, rich green color, leaves no doubt of its importance as a jewel.
Its opaque strength and power demands respect, mesmerizing the viewer. Yet the movement, flow and energy in its lines, circles and designs soothe and welcome. Tiger's Eye - History and Introduction.
Tiger's eye is a gold-brown, opaque gemstone variety of fibrous quartz. More specifically, it is a variety of macrocrystalline quartz. However, unlike most quartz gemstones, tiger's eye is actually a'pseudomorph' of quartz. A'pseudomorph' is what geologists refer to as any mineral that transforms into another mineral.
In the case of tiger's eye, it began as crocidolite, but was later transformed into quartz. Crocidolite is one of the several forms of asbestos.It is a fibrous blue mineral and belongs to the riebeckite family of amphibole silicates. The transformation of tiger's eye begins when quartz slowly becomes embedded between the fibers of crocidolite, eventually the quartz completely replaces crocidolite while still retaining the original fibrous shape. Tiger's eye is famed for its remarkable chatoyancy and its attractive golden brown colors. It is closely related to hawk's eye and pietersite, both of which exhibit similar chatoyancy. Tiger's eye is actually formed from hawk's eye.
During the pseudomorph transformation process, materials that contain more iron oxide result in brownish tiger's eye; less oxidation and less iron tends toward the original blue color of crocidolite. Technically, the term pietersite may be used to describe any brecciated tiger's eye or hawk's eye.Brecciated stones are rocks which are composed of materials that have been broken apart, swirled around, and then later reformed and cemented together by quartz or another type of host or matrix material. This results in a more chaotic chatoyancy, rather than the linear chatoyancy of regular hawk's eye and tiger's eye. Joyful and potent, Poppy Jasper is named for its orbicular'flowers'. A powerhouse that is gently stimulating or fiery as required, it is a strongly physical healing crystal that resonates with the base chakra or root chakra (chakra 1 - Muladhara) to bring you vitality and passion, grounding energy into the body and stimulating libido. Conversely, it calms an over-stimulated base chakra and disperses sexual frustration, soothing an over-active libido. Useful when fresh motivation is needed, this gemstone acts like an adrenaline kick. Following the whorls of Poppy Jasper facilitates shamanic lower-world journeys and improves dream recall, providing protection at all times.
By rectifying unjust situations, it reminds humanity to help each other. Poppy Jasper balances yin yang energy, and aligns the physical, emotional and mental bodies with the etheric realm. Clearing electromagnetic and environmental pollution, it assists when dowsing.
