Angel Aura Quartz Crystal Filigree Silver Bullet by mymysticgems
Angel Aura Quartz Crystal Filigree Silver Bullet
I attached a silver filigree to a recycled 380 caliber silver bullet shell casing, then added an angel aura quartz crystal point. This comes with a 24 inch silver chain.

The aura process starts with specially selected clear quartz crystals, which are heated in a vacuum chamber and infused with platinum, silver, and other trace elements. The process alters the original crystal, and a powerful alchemy is created between the metals and the quartz. The result is a magical iridescent crystal. Angel Aura quartz has rainbow flashes of color.

Aura crystals provide shielding and guard against negative energy. They help align and balance the chakras and can increase spiritual and psychic awareness. Angel aura crystals can be used in meditation and also healing work. They enhance the properties of other gemstones and are a good stone to use in crystal grids.

An original Beautiful Bullets design. I have been creating bullet jewelry since 2009 and have designed over a hundred different styles and types. I use recycled bullet shell casings, metal filigrees, Swarovski crystals, natural gemstones and vintage glass. All of the bullet casings I use are recycled so please allow for variations and small imperfections.

I started my bullet jewelry line as a peace project, and I continue to donate part of the sale to different charities. I have sent donations to the Peace Corps, the Patriot Guard Riders, the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, the Sandy Hook School Support Fund, and the USO. Thanks to everyone who has purchased one of these designs and made that possible.

Viking SunStone Optical Calcite Crystal Pendant by mymysticgems
Viking SunStone Optical Calcite Crystal Pendant
I wrapped a natural optical calcite crystal with wide silver aluminum wire. I made it with the points up and down in a diamond shape. Like most Iceland spar specimens, this one has rainbow prisms. It also has some interesting inclusions. Comes with a 24 inch 925 silver chain.

Iceland spar is clear variety of calcite originally found in Iceland. It was often used in experiments involving light polarization, as it is well known for its double refraction qualities. It easily divides into rhomboid shapes. Some historians have speculated that it is the original sun stone mentioned in medieval texts (solarsteinn), that Vikings used to tell the direction of the sun on overcast days.

Iceland spar is a good cleansing stone and can amplify environmental energy. It is also restorative and helps to accelerate psychic development and spiritual growth. It provides insight in negative situations and aids in clarification during confusing emotional states.

Experts have long argued that Vikings knew how to use blocks of light-fracturing crystal to locate the Sun through dense clouds, but archaeologists have never found hard proof, and doubts remained as to exactly what kind of material it might be.

An international team of researchers led by Guy Ropars of the University of Rennes in Brittany, marshalling experimental and theoretical evidence, says they have the answer. Vikings, they argue, used transparent calcite crystal -- also known as Iceland spar -- to fix the true bearing of the Sun, to within a single degree of accuracy. This naturally occurring stone has the capacity to "depolarize" light, filtering and fracturing it along different axes, the researchers explained.

Here's how it works: "If you put a dot on top of the crystal and look through it from below, two dots will appear. Then you rotate the crystal until the two points have exactly the same intensity or darkness. At that angle, the upward-facing surface indicates the direction of the Sun," Ropars explained by phone. "A precision of a few degrees can be reached even under dark twilight conditions. Vikings would have been able to determine with precision the direction of the hidden Sun." He added, "The human eye has a fine-tuned capacity to distinguish between shades of contrast, and thus is able to see when the two spots are truly identical."

Dark Wings Filigree Quartz Crystal Heart Pendant by mymysticgems
Dark Wings Filigree Quartz Crystal Heart Pendant
I combined a dark gunmetal butterfly wings filigree with a natural quartz crystal point, then added a tiny red vintage glass heart. This comes with an 18 inch gunmetal chain.

Butterflies symbolize rebirth and profound changes of the soul. With each metamorphosis they bring renewed hope for the spirit and transformation of knowledge into new ways of thinking.

Wings symbolize freedom from earthly restraints and the ability to rise above the mundane world. They represent our aspirations to achieve the highest accomplishments and victories. Wings can also be transformational, expressing our desire to reach a previously unattainable state.

Quartz crystal is the most abundant gemstone in the earth's crust. It is found on every continent. Clear quartz is considered a power stone and can enhance the metaphysical properties of other stones. Quartz Crystal has a similar vibration as humans. Using a crystal to meditate and wearing or keeping a crystal helps to a better understanding of yourself.
