~Coyote~

Coyotes in Native American folklore often represent hidden wisdom and a strong sense of humor!

~Claws, Teeth, Bones~

The claws, teeth, and bones of wild animals have historically been worn as symbols of prowess & social standing. Deep admiration was given to those who could kill the most fearsome of beasts. It's no longer a necessity for most of us to hunt for our survival, so the wearing of claws, teeth, & bones has become symbolic of overcoming great obstacles despite our fears, and connecting with our inner animal as we charge forth the evolution of the spirit

~Thunderbird~

The thunderbird is a legendary creature in certain North American indigenous peoples' history and culture. It is considered a supernatural bird of power and strength. It is especially important, and frequently depicted, in the art, songs and oral histories of many Pacific Northwest Coast cultures, and is found in various forms among the peoples of the American Southwest, Great Lakes, and Great Plains. Often thought to represent the best aspects of humankind, The Lakota name for the Thunderbird translates to 'sacred winged'. The word 'thunderbird' pays homage to the myth that this noble creature has the ability to create thunder with a flutter of its mighty wings and can influence natural events like rainfall, thunder, and cloud formation. This explains why the Thunderbird is seen as a symbol of Prosperity and Abundance, and the Bird Man dance (which originates from the Mississippian Indians) is a popular ceremony held in honor of the Thunderbird's sacred gifts to the tribe. The Thunderbird is a symbol of Creation. For many tribes, the Thunderbird was a servant of the Great Spirit, the Supreme Being that rules everything in the universe. It is seen as an animal of the Sun, bringing with it new possibilities with each coming dawn.

~Turquoise~

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 taken an injury for its wearer.

~Malachite~

A highly protective and spiritually versatile stone, malachite has been used to aid in boosting creativity, enhancing intuition, and healing the heart in both the physical and emotional sense. Jewelry and ornamentation for this stone has been found on Egyptian pieces dating back at least 3000 years. 

~Onyx~

A powerful warrior stone, Onyx helps stomp out negative thought patterns stemming from the most debilitating and toxic emotion of them all – fear. Include Onyx in your gem collection and always know that whatever happens, this powerful root chakra stone always has your back.
