Happy Halloween! Blessed Samhain!
Here are some cute little seasonal earrings that feature charming enameled pumpkins, and large amber beads. They are offset by pretty Bali silver star bead caps and cast Tibetan silver charms. These earrings are slightly shorter than the other pair we have listed - they hang 1 3/4 inches from the sterling earwires.
One major thing the Irish and other Celts have brought to this land is the tradition of Halloween and use of the pumpkin. In Ireland it is believed that Samhain, the eve of All Hallows (all that is Sacred), the veil between the worlds is thinnest. On that night, people honor their Ancestors with a feast.
Due to the magickal unknowns connected with that night, any Irish abroad on that night would hollow out a turnip, put a candle into it, in order to warn any Spirits that might be abroad. Similarly, a candle was put in the windows, to guide the Beloved Dead to the Otherworld. When they moved to this country, gourds were plentiful, especially pumpkins, which could be carved in such a manner to frighten off any Spirits, Elves and the like, who were of ill intent. To us, one of the most wonderful things about Samhain ("summer's end) is that we honor our ancestors, do divination (where bobbing for apples came from) and other practices.
All the varieties of tourmalines, are piezo-electric. Applying any kind of pressure, by rubbing or heating, gives it an electric charge. It is incredibly sensitive to variations in energy fields, and all of the colors work with the central nervous system. Although tourmalines are pleochroic (different colors depending upon angle that light hits), the dark and black tourmalines almost absorb all light before they shimmer it back out.
One of the most amazing abilities which all the tourmalines possess is their ability to help you transform negative situations into positive ones, as all tourmalines bring Crown chakra's link to the Divine down into your Being and strengthen every chakra level at which the individual colors vibrate.
This stone is a powerful magickal tool from Mother Earth! It shields the entire aura from harmful vibrations, everything from thoughtforms to negative personalities. Although wearing black clothing attracts all light to it, wearing black tourmaline seals up your aura from anything you do not want coming in, while allowing that which you choose to allow in. At the same time, black tourmaline strengthens the Root Chakra, that center in our bodies which has to do with survival and grounding in the earth plane.
Tourmaline gemstones are powerful magickal tools from Mother Earth! Honor them and they will bless you with their gentle yet intense electromagnetic energies!
All of our items are one of a kind, hand-crafted and designed with a true love of the glorious gemstones from Mother Earth. Thanks for looking!
