WORKS IN GLASS: BEACH RIPPLE
Apophyllite and onyx date back to Greece. Apophyllite comes from “apo” meaning “off” and “phyllon” meaning “leaf.” The combination means to leaf off or flake off. Apophyllite has a high water content and flakes away when heated. According to legend, onyx comes from Eros/Cupid who cut Venus’s fingernails while she slept. The clippings scattered all over the ground and the gods turned them into the stone onyx.
The ocean waters are contaminated with metals and radiation from the nuclear meltdown years ago. The radiation flowed throughout the ocean waters and to the western coast of the United States. Beach Ripple touches on this ripple effect and actions of disregard.
This piece is great for relaxation and balance. Blue onyx and lithium quartz are soothing stones that help maintain a calm emotional balance. Blue onyx also assists in eliminating unwanted energies and tiredness from life’s challenges. Apophyllite is great for providing energy and for assisting in meditation.
