EarthWhorls Celebrates a Secret Stone

October 13, 2015 9 Comments

Win a $25.00 Coupon Code just for guessing! 

One of the things I love about gemstones is the fact that they are all so different and yet, have many things in common. They share colors and textures and places of origin.  The stone I’m going to be talking about today comes from Africa, Iran and, a number of different areas in the United States.  

 I guess you could say, today’s blog is an interactive one because, I want you to participate.  I’m going to give you some interesting, little known facts about a particular type of stone and then, I want you to guess what stone it is.  Everyone who guesses and leaves a comment in the area below this blog will receive a $25.00 coupon code to use on the website.  The code will be good towards purchase of any item you choose.

And one lucky winner, who guesses the right stone, (chosen at random) will receive a gift of a one of a kind, handmade, piece of jewelry made from today’s secret stone.  So, by commenting below the blog, you can only win.  There are no losers at EarthWhorls!  You will have to sign in, in order for us to have your email address and be able to send your gift card.  I promise, I don’t send out a million emails a week – just two – one on Tuesday – one on Friday and often, they alert you to promotions or, bring you up to date on fashion news, or, announce an amazing sale.

Here goes:  Secret Stone Clues:  (1) The brighter the stone, the happier it is supposed to make the wearer. (2) Each stone contains a small amount of copper.  It is the copper, mixing with other elements, that gives the stone its particular coloring.  (3)Many people, over the centuries, believed the stone to be holy and to absorb negative energy, providing a positive aura for the wearer.  (4) Some cultures who mined the stone and turned it into jewelry, wore it believing it could merge their mind with the whole of the universe.  (4) Some say that this gemstone is one of the oldest ones to be used for adornment, in human history.  (5)  Some cultures use it as a talisman for power, success and protection. (6)  This stone comes in many colors and color combinations but, it is associated with two main colors.  (6)  It is the birth stone for a cold month, a month that is considered to be particularly important in many cultures.  (7)  This stone appears on the following page on my website – at least twice!

Last clue:  This stone was found on King Tutankhaman’s golden mask (-1330BC)  

Please join in the fun, and guess!
