Looking, playing and designing with beautiful gemstones has cured me of my insatiable jewelry collecting habit. I no longer feel the need to own and hoard jewelry. I now hoard gemstones! There's no stopping me when I see something I love...you know the feeling...it's mine no matter what.

The Power of the Beauty
Of the hundreds of thousands of minerals on display and available to me at the Tucson gem show I ended up with a few dozens of them. How did I choose these out of all the ones I saw? Purely by instinct, intuition and visuals. Aside from looking the way I want them to look, the minerals I ended up with all have the properties I need, as I found out recently when I looked them up. I have to say that if you are indecisive and aren't good at scanning large expanses of table tops at a fast walking pace you would be at these shows forever, thus only cover a small fraction of the shows available. Here is a stilbite, as used in this Frosty Stilbite Pendant
necklace, a stone I repeated bought in different forms from different
suppliers. Out of seas of stones I always spotted them.
Here is the one I play with.
This is what ThunderHealing.com says about stilbite:
Stilbite is a powerful mineral.
It helps with psychic knowing and intuition.
It is also used for psychic direction and guidance from guides, guardian angels, and totem animals.
Stilbite is also a powerful stone of creativity that enhances creative energy.
It heightens many physical senses, particularly taste.
Stilbite can also help with acceptance and letting go.
It is also used for manifestation.
Physically, stilbite is used to remove toxins, and for laryngitis.
Stilbite is associated with the heart, crown, and throat chakras.
I know most people do amethysts, citrines and
crystals but don't you think stilbite is much more interesting looking
in form and texture?
