An amazing men's necklace made of Tiger's Eye, African Turquoise, Pyrite and Carnelian Gemstones.
Carnelian (also spelled cornelian) is a brownish-red mineral commonly used as a semi-precious gemstone. Carnelian was used widely during Roman times to make engraved gems for signet or seal rings for imprinting a seal with wax on correspondence or other important documents. Hot wax does not stick to carnelian. It has a warm, uniform, and easily distinguishable color. Carnelian is usually fashioned in a cabochon cut and accents especially well on silver. Its translucency is especially apparent in pendants, and it is how many people prefer to wear this beautiful gemstone. Carnelian works well with fall colors.
Carnelian is about action. Carnelian provides a powerful boost to your willpower, with the physical energy and drive to back it up. If your heart wants something, carnelian can give you the confidence and power to go for it.
African Turquoise An opaque greenish-blue gemstone consisting of a copper aluminum hydrous phosphate mineral. It often has veins of darker or lighter material running through it, which is referred to as “matrix”. The matrix can be yellow, brown, or black depending on the turquoise. African turquoise is actually a form of jasper.
Like most blue gemstones, turquoise activates and balances the throat chakra. This is the center of speech and self-expression. Turquoise helps us speak our wisdom and truth clearly. Turquoise helps with blocks around giving and receiving forgiveness. People often have a tendency to push away people and memories that are painful or upsetting. Darkness and pain are universal human experiences, and only by integrating these aspects of existence can we become whole. This is never an easy process, but turquoise reminds us that we are not alone and indeed it is a journey everyone must make to heal. Tiger's eye (also called tiger eye) is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock with a golden to red-brown colour and a silky lustre.
Tiger Eye is a golden-brown banded variety of quartz that exhibits chatoyancy, or the “cat’s eye effect”–a luminous streak that moves as you rotate the stone. Faceting tiger eye can sometimes dull this effect, so usually it is worn as round beads or cabochons. Tiger’s Eye supports vitality, physical wellness, and endurance. It’s a great stone to wear if you are sick or dealing with chronic fatigue or other illnesses that make you tired, worn-down, or exhausted.
