About The Stones
The name for this coveted wine-colored gemstone comes from the Latin word granatus for "seeds" because the stones resemble the juicy seeds of a pomegranate! In Greek mythology, a pomegranate was often given as a gift of passion and associated with eternal love.
Garnets symbolize a quick return to a separated love - they are often gifted to a loved one before they embark on travel.
About Rock Crystal Quartz
Rock Crystal Quartz is the purest variety of Quartz - transparent and completely colorless. Most people don't know that other popular gemstones are simply versions of Quartz with colors, such as Amethyst, Citrine, and more.
In our modern world, Quartz is used in the mechanism of quartz watches (hence the name) which keep exceptionally accurate time. This is because of Quartz's ability to release regular electronic impulses at precise frequencies. Quartz's piezoelectricity is not only for watches but GPS equipment, telephones and radios, as well as the mechanism triggering airbags in our cars. It's genuinely a scientifically interesting natural stone crystal!
Rock Crystal Quartz is said to be associated with new beginnings.
Natural white Howlite is said to be an excellent stone for meditation and has been used by practitioners to focus the mind. The grey spidery veins are thought to be like intrusive thoughts - to be acknowledged and then passed by.
Howlite is found in cauliflower-like masses that have the texture of unglazed porcelain. This snow-white stone ranges from pure white to being threaded with black or dark grey spiderweb veining. In its natural, undyed form, Howlite is a beautiful stone, especially in contrast with other stone colors.
How To Size Your Bracelet
Using a piece of string (or fabric measuring tape), measure your wrist just above the wrist bone (towards your elbow, not your hand). This is the circumference of your wrist. Depending on the type of fit you would like, add the following to your measured wrist circumference to get a final bracelet size:
Snug fit (won't move much): add 1/4" to 1/2"
"Comfort" fit (will move, but stay above your hand): add 3/4" to 1"
Loose fit (may drape down on your hand a bit): add 1-1/4"
Pick the bracelet size closest to this final calculation. For example, if I measured my wrist as 5.75" and wanted a snug fit, I would pick either size 6 or size 6.5 as my bracelet size. If I wanted a loose fit that would hang down a bit on the top of my hand, I'd pick size 7.
