Palm Sized Stones
Lapis Lazuli (mottled blue): This is one of the most sought after stones in use since man's history began. Its deep, celestial blue remains the symbol of royalty and honor, gods and power, spirit and vision. It is a universal symbol of wisdom and truth. In ancient times, Lapis Lazuli was most highly regarded because of its beautiful color and the valuable ultramarine dye derived from it. Its name comes from the Latin lapis, "stone," and the Persian lazhuward, "blue." It is rock formed by multiple minerals, mostly Lazurite, Sodalite, Calcite and Pyrite, and is a rich medium to royal blue with gold flecks (pyrites). Lower-grade Lapis is lighter blue with more white than gold flecks- which is not what you are getting here!

It is driftwood, primarily of the family Araucariaceae, that has fossilized, metamorphosed to lignite coal. At high magnification, the structure of the wood can still be seen even though its origin as a tree is millions of years in the past. In Whitby, England jet is mined that came from the Jurassic era around 180 million years ago.
Metaphysical Ideas about Jet:
Jet's energies of purification of energy and vibrations bring about protection on many levels. It has been used extensively for protection against evil and all negative energies. It is also a powerful protector against psychic attacks. Jet also has energies making it protective to finances and business and brings stability to these realms. It reaches the height of these properties traditionally when worn as a pendant or necklace set in silver. In purification processes, jet may absorb some of the unwanted negative energy, so it should be cleared / cleansed fully after each use, and it will be happy to work with you again.
Rose Quartz (pink): Rose quartz is opaque to translucent macrocrystalline quartz of pink to rose-red color. It normally occurs in the cores of large pegmatites as solid masses of rose colored quartz whose individual crystals have poorly formed boundaries. Some rose quartz contains microscopic rutile crystals which are oriented at right angles to the c-axis of the rose quartz in three directions, each 120 degrees apart. When viewed at a specific angle with a source of light a star-effect is visible. This is known as asterism. The color of rose quartz is still not completely understood. It has been said to be due to a number of different minor impurities present in the rose quartz including titanium, manganese and even colloidal gold. However, recent studies using micro-analytical methods have discovered that the color of massive rose quartz is actually due to microscopic mineral fibers in the rose quartz.
