Gemstones for Capricorn

Capricorn ~ December 22 - January 19

Capricorn characteristics: ambitious, organizer, planner, serious, responsible, disciplined, practical, determined, self-sufficient, reliable.

Black Onyx increases confidence in Capricorns and helps realize material goals. Onyx fosters balance, structure, a sense of control, and supports strong self-discipline.

Garnet gives a needed sense of lightness and brightness for heavy-minded Capricorn. It encourages personal relationships, in business or in romance. Garnet also encourages loyalty and commitment in relationships and can inspire love and love and passion in romantically cautious Capricorn.

Carnelian promotes passion, warmth, and aids in decision-making.

Flourite dissolves fixed thought patterns, and is good for joints and bones.

Turquoise prevents martyred attitude and dissolves self-sabotage.

Snowflake Obsidian promotes courage and joy of life.

New! Tigereye and Black Onyx Necklace

One of my favorite stones - Tigereye is a member of the Quartz family. Colors range from golden to dark brown with iridescent banding.

This Tigereye necklace is made with Tigereye ovals and rounds and faceted Black Onyx rondelles.


New! Rhodonite and Dumortierite Necklace & Bracelet

Rhodonite is considered the "Rescue Stone". It is is a silicate or quartz composite. It has a distinct pink or rose red color, although material containing black veins is more popular than the uniform pink. The word rhodonite is derived from the Greek word rhodon for rosy.

This necklace combines pinks and dark blue with Rhodonite ovals and Dumortierite rounds. Spacers are 24kt white gold.

Matching bracelet.

New! Amethyst, Moonstone, Angelite, Hematite Necklace

I love this stone combination ~ Amethyst, Moonstone, Angelite and Hematite gemstones and 24kt White Gold. It measures 19" in length and closes easily and securely with a sterling silver hook clasp.


New! Fibromyalgia Quartz Crystal, Tourmalinated Quartz Necklace

This necklace was created with fibromyalgia sufferers in mind. Fibromyalgia "is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain in your muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points — places on your body where slight pressure causes pain." - Mayo Clinic Staff.

These stones were specifically chosen to help with this condition:

*Quartz Crystal is considered a master healer. It is said to stimulates the immune system, brings the body into balance and helps relieve pain.

*Tourmalinated Quartz carries the properties of purification, and recovery from negative influences.

24kt White Gold are used as spacers. The necklace measures 19" in length and closes easily and securely with a sterling silver hook clasp.

Gemstones are a holistic tool and can assist the wearer in their healing process but I also highly recommend seeking the advice of a medical doctor as well as other holistic health practitioners.
