TIGER'S EYE: used as a talisman since ancient times, Tiger's Eye was used in Egypt as the eyes of their deity statues to symbolize divine vision. They also believed that TIger's Eye gave both the protection of the sun and earth to the wearer. Today, Tiger's Eye is mined primarily in South Africa and Western Australia.
OBSIDIAN: First used about 2.5 million years ago, obsidian has been used as everything from arrowheads, spears, knives, mirrors, tattooing, and even food preparation. In ancient Mexican civilizations, obsidian was known as a divine stone and used in many religious rituals. The stone forms from the lava that comes from the very tail end of a volcanic eruption.
ONYX is one of the most anciently used stones with admirers from even the earliest human civilizations. The stone was historically used as amulets to either be worn or embedded in weaponry or armor to increase the strength and protection of warriors in battle.
