About the stones
Rhodochrosite forms as stalactites and stalagmites in caves and crevices deep underground. It is found in Argentina, Peru, Colorado, Montana and Quebec.
In Argentina it is also known as ‘Rosa del Inca’ or ‘Inca Rose Stone’ and it is said that the Incas believed that rhodochrosite was the blood of their former ancestors turned into stone.
Rhodochrosite is thought to encourage positive feelings, personal strength and to sooth its wearer. It is also considered a powerful love stone and is said to attract the perfect love and enables the wearer to achieve self-love, tolerance, forgiveness and friendship.
Tourmaline is the horoscope stone for Pisces and Gemini.
Tourmalines occur in a variety of colours ranging from magenta to teal blue. The name Tourmaline comes from Sinhalese (Sri Lanka) word tura mali, which translates as the stone of mixed colours.
Ancient legend states that tourmaline is the stone of many colours because of its travels along rainbows where it captured the rainbows' many beautiful colours.
Tourmalines are renowned for their detoxifying properties and their ability to boost the immune system.
