The Sacred Art of Adornment

It is probable that prehistoric humans thought of decorating the body long before they thought of making use of anything that could suggest clothing. Before precious metals were discovered, people who lived along the seashore decorated themselves with a great variety of shells, fishbones, fish teeth, and colored pebbles. People who lived inland used as ornamental materials from the animals they hunted for food: reindeer antlers, mammoth tusks, and all kinds of animal bones.

Civilization replaced a nomadic lifestyle, and humans settled along the banks of large rivers and seas. Here, they discovered some of the Earth's most precious resources, including gold and precious stones. Some of the earliest evidence of jewelry boasts from the Sumerian Queen Pu-abi’s tomb at Ur in Sumer (now called Tall al-Muqayyar), dating from the 3rd millennium BCE. In the crypt, the upper part of the queen’s body was covered with a sort of robe made of gold, silver, lapis lazuli, carnelian, agate, and chalcedony beads.

Crystals and stones such as these can accelerate and amplify energy patterns which unite their natural power with the strength of your intentions to aid you in emotional, spiritual, and physical healing. Your body can easily match the vibration of a crystal piece of jewelry, so choose wisely!
