The Diamond is said to enhance the wearer with charm and beauty. Physically it strengthens the kidneys and reproductive organs and gives protection in severe disease. The ancient Romans believed that the Diamond, when worn on the left arm, next to the skin, would give the wearer bravery and a daring spirit.

Bloodstone is your zodiac stone. Medieval Christians often used Bloodstone to carve scenes of the crucifixion and martyrs, leading it to also be dubbed martyr's stone. The legend of the origin of Bloodstone says that it was first formed when some drops of Christ's blood fell and stained some Jasper at the foot of the cross. Also Bloodstone is a powerful healing stone of renewal. It revitalizes and enhances both body and mind. It instills wisdom and sensitivity for inner guidance.


Topaz is your talisman stone. The Topaz is the gem of the Setting Sun. The Egyptians said that Topaz was colored with the golden glow of the mighty sun god Ra. This made Topaz a very powerful amulet that protected the faithful against harm. Also, Topaz enhances individuality, creativity and awareness. It aids confidence in decision-making and discourages negativity.


Opal is your mystical stone. Opal has been described in medieval times as a cure for diseases of the eye. Opal is given as a symbol of hope, happiness and truth.
