Overview

Since humans made the first flint arrow and fire strikers, and possibly long before that, crystals and stones have been seen as a source of wonder and in some cases power.

The Egyptian goddess Isis protected the dead with a Carnelian Amulet named Thet. After being soaked in Ankhami flower water, on a Sycamore plinth (a type of tile) and placed on the body of the deceased, Isis would grant the person protection from harm while moving through the afterlife. The stone also appears In Hebrew Mythology; Aaron’s breastplate included a Carnelian stone. Buddhists in China and India created amulets inlaid with Carnelian and other semi-precious stones, ascribing to them powers of protection and utilizing them for many rituals. To this day Carnelian is often suggested as a protective stone

Citrine was gifted to or carried by traders to protect them in there travels, As well as ensure the trip was profitable one. This too carries over to today where we find citrine often suggested to abundance and wealth.

In ancient times the Vikings used Iolite to help in Navigation. A slab of Iolite would be gazed upon to aid direction. This was because Iolite can bear a different hue when viewed at different angles, helping the mariner find north & south. It is also believed to protect for safe journeys. Today Iolite is often recommended as a stone to help one see the path ahead clearly, to promote clarity and aide in changes.
