Crisolemon is a chalcedony found in Queensland (Australia), Russia, California, Brazil and Austria. Its apple-green color derives from the presence of traces of nickel. The ancients associated it to the goddess Venus, not for its beauty and sensuality, but for a “sense of justice” that characterized the Goddess’s image. This stone promotes the development of patience, allowing the individual to accept willingly that the truth can be difficult to achieve. Crisolemon instils confidence and self-confidence. Its detoxifying action on a physical level becomes purification on a psychological level.
Turquoise is a basic phosphate rock composed of aluminum hydrate and copper, giving it a blue-green color, however it can be found in pale blue or deep green. The water eventually evaporates and oxidizes the copper contained in the stone, transforming from its original color to a unique blue-apple green. It is found in crystals, aggregates or clusters. It’s the protective stone par excellence and instils courage, reducing melancholy. Turquoise is connected to the 4th, 5th and 6th chakras, invigorating, purifying and strengthening the whole body while absorbing radiation and harmful substances. Given as a gift, it brings wealth and happiness. Its energy is activated by the rays of the sun and moon.
Once united, Crisolemon and Turquoise evoke the blending of earth and sky. The moulding is done using a technique called “a Strie” in Italian, meaning it appears to have been decorated with precise hammering.
