For thousands of years, turquoise has been prized as a symbol of wisdom, nobility, and immortality. In many Native American cultures, it represents the Great Spirit in the Sky and is often referred to as the sky stone. It’s believed that if a crack forms in the stone, it has absorbed the impact that would have otherwise resulted in an injury to its wearer, making it a powerful stone of physical protection.
The name comes from the Koine Greek amethystos "not" and methysko "intoxicate". Traditionally worn to guard against drunkenness and restore a sober mind. The amethyst stone is well-known to aid the Third Eye, otherwise known as the Anja chakra, granting clear, intuitive insight and inner peace. Birthstone zodiac sign: Aquarius Associated month: February
Mother always said that if you find a feather it’s a symbol that you are on your true path- that you should pick it up and keep it for luck on your journey. Feathers have commonly represented everything from the center of the cosmos to good luck. Used in countless cultures around the globe for rituals and ceremonies, as a status symbol, or even a plain ol' writing tool. The feather can also be a potent symbol of versatility. The Navajo tribe used hawk and eagle feathers to make their famous headdress of feathers. Only warriors who had displayed extraordinary bravery were allowed to wear it. In the stories created by our jewelry, 1888's feathers represent freedom and the need to soar towards passion. Oh, and a little good luck never hurts.
