Invoking a sunny disposition and awakening the inner Goddess, this necklace is handmade in collaboration with Great Dame in Athens, GA. 

Amber is a fossilized plant resin that contains succinic acid known for its calming and healing properties. The Greeks first discovered  the electrical properties of amber when rubbing it with a cloth. Their word for amber "elektron" led to the word "electricity".  The ancients wore natural Baltic amber necklaces and bracelets, made from amber stones and chips that washed up on the shores of the Baltic Sea, that were thought to have magical curative powers.The golden yellow color and its basis as a plant material connect amber strongly to the sun. 

Hematite is a red oxide of iron. The term hematite is derived from the Greek word “haima” meaning blood. In ancient times, it was associated with the Greek God of War, Ares and the Roman God of War, Mars. The Romans adorned themselves with hematite and used the mineral to paint their faces. This provided strength and made them fearless and invincible. Energetically, hematite is associated with the first/root chakra and is outstanding at grounding excess energy and acts as a stabilizing force. It works on healing and regenerating the forces related to blood circulation. Authentic hematite is magnetic.
