PICTURE JASPER: known as the "Stone of Global Awareness", picture jasper is thought to be the stone closest to the Earth. Earlier civilizations believed the picture-like patterns in the stone to carry secret message left behind from the past.
FOSSIL CORAL: otherwise know as "agatized coral", fossil coral is created when coral (over time) hardens and turns to agate, leaving behind fossil imprints of the original coral. Agate is said to be a grounding stone that stands for change. Since ancient times, coral has been used as a talisman against danger.
PYRITE: (also known as Fool's Gold) a symbol of warmth, and was popularly used in talismans for protection - believed to help in shielding against negative energies.
