Each adornment has been smoke cleansed with anglem (burned twined cotton cloth) infused with dragon's blood resin in order to release and drive away malevolent spirits or energies.

 

 The serpent's energy is one of rebirth. Many ancients began using serpentine to craft drinking vessels. In ancient Assyria, it is told that this stone was carried to request of the gods and goddess to provide blessings. In China and India it is quite often incorporated into altars, carvings temple decorations, as it is seen as a protective stone that will bring peace. Serpentine was named in 1564 by Georgius Agricola for the Latin term "serpens", "snake", in allusion to the mottled green appearance of the mineral suggesting the resemblance to some snakes.

 

Serpentinite is formed by near to complete serpentinization of mafic to ultramafic rocks.

 

Pearls are the only gems born from a living creature in by way of a conscious, self nurturing process. They are representative of powerful feminine energy and the ability to create a new life within it.  The south sea pearl is the national gem of the Philippines and a sacred symbol. The Pearl of Lao Tzu (1934), The Palawan Princess (2009), and The Pearl of Puerto Princesa (2016) are three of the world’s largest natural pearls all discovered in the Philippines. With its home in the sea and even freshwater,  pearls can have great purpose in moon rituals and energy channeling and symbolize our own inner wisdom. 

 

Lapis Lazuli is derived from the Latin word “Lapis” meaning stone and the Persian word “lāzaward” meaning sky or heaven. It is a metamorphic rock found in caves rather than mines and has some of the oldest societal uses tracing back ancient Egyptian high trade due to its beauty, but also incredible power. Its deep blue signifies wisdom and higher knowledge.
