FAQ's often asked in the shop

Do you believe in all this? June 16, 2020 16:05

This question is fading, though still does pop up. It is bound to because there are still people going around who have no greater awareness of crystals than the chandelier or a big rock seen in someone's garden. It does baffle me every time though how it can be happening. Why is there not a crystal shop in each town along with the delicatessen, post office and corner store? Their benefits are so great it has been kept secret!

The first radios used a crystal to recreate sound from vibrations. Quartz crystals are still used in watches including digital watches, utilizing the piezoelectric effect, to create a 60 hertz signal and one hertz represents one minute. Quartz crystals will go on and on consistently resonating with the Earth’s pulse beat or Schuman Frequency. Silicon chips are manufactured in the image of natural Quartz for high capacity data storage and retrieval.

Crystals are timeless relative to a single human lifetime they can be 60,000 years and upwards in the making as they continue to grow themselves in the right conditions within the Earth's crust. They are incredibly stable and consistent in their frequencies they emit.  Laboratories have learned to create replica crystals for technology and so beautiful are the results that there is a high demand from the jewellery market. In this case we wonder, have the man-made version the same potency? Being newly created they are still as pure in their vibrational frequency  however have not long communed with the energies and events of our Earth and it’s many wonders.

Is it Silver? June 16, 2020 14:37

Silver is an element on the periodic table, Ag. It is a mineral and a metal. Being quite malleable and possible to refine from rock, plus polishing to a lustre it has long been popular for setting jewellery and making amulets and vessels. Silver is non toxic to humans in balance. We are both able to absorb Silver from what we eat (silver is a trace element in healthy soil) and through the skin. It has medicinal applications and is essential for our bodies functioning and health.

Pure Silver is mostly blended with other mixed metals to provide a harder material after it has been worked and made into something. This is know as Stirling Silver or 925 which translates as 92.5% pure Silver and therefore 7.5% other metals. Precious metal items are usually stamped somewhere on the inside or back of the piece, known as a hallmark.

Some people have reactions to contact with silver which is often a reaction to something in the composite metals which vary. Nickel is known to be an irritant to some and has been left out in more modern blends. Knickel free jewellery is a standard practice in European and U.K. markets.

We do like to add some 18ct gold here and there in combination with the silver. Most of our pieces are Stirling Silver, look for it in the description of the item.
