Under the Pink Earrings for Rachel

There earrings are custom made for my best friend, Rachel...

These earrings, named for Tori Amos's 1994 album "Under the Pink,"  feature moonstone, rose quartz, magnesite, sterling silver and sterling silver enameled wire, and platinum plated earwires.

Stone properties:
Associated with the heart chakra and the signs Aries, Taurus, Virgo, and Libra, rose quartz is a stone of "unconditional love."  It encourages all forms of love including self-love, self-confidence, and romantic love.  It also brings forgiveness and gentleness, tolerance and acceptance, and increased receptivity to colors, sounds, art, music, and poetry.  Rose quartz helps boost creativity and is calming, reducing stress, clears anger, resentment, guilt, fear, and jealously.  It is truly an amazing stone!

Magnesite has the same crystal structure as calcite, which is similar in texture and hardness to marble and turquoise. In gem lore, magnesite is known for its ability to calm, bring emotional balance, open wearers up to "higher realms and states of consciousness," and get them in touch with themselves beyond veils of perceptions. It is also believed to clear blockages and hang-ups over the past and open the third eye and crown chakras, which bolsters psychic abilities and promotes bliss (source).

Moonstone is known for its ability to calm, relive stress, encourage inner growth, intuition, success, and good fortune in both love and business endeavors. It is also June's birthstone and associated with the astrological signs Cancer, Libra, and Scorpio.
