REDS/ORANGES/CARNELIAN/SUNSTONE/CORAL/MOOKITE/RAMONA MOORE/5


RED IS THE MOST PRIMAL COLOR OF ALL. RELATED WITH THE ROOT CHAKRA,

RED REPRESENTS OUR DEEPEST DESIRES. EVEN THE MANY SHADES OF RED EVOKES

EMOTION-LADEN RESPONSES.

THESE ARE GREAT CHOICES TO ENLIVEN ONES 'JOI DE VIVE'. (JOY OF LIFE).




(1) THIS THREE STRAND, (12,11,10") PIECE HAS LOADS OF CHARACTER.

THE ROUGH-FACETED NATURE OF THESE BEADS LEND THEMSELVES TO

THE PERSON WHO SELDOM 'STAYS IN THE LINES' OF THE COLORING BOOK.


FROM DEEP ORANGE-RED TO BARELY THERE BEIGE,

THE ENTIRE RANGE FROM OPAQUE TO TRANSPARENT IS BEAUTIFULLY APPARENT.



(#2) THE MANY VIBRANT COLORS OF CORAL INCLUDE VARIATIONS OF

BLACK, WHITE, RED, PINK, PURPLE AND BLUE.

TO SWIM AMONG THEM IN THE OCEAN IS A RARE TREAT,

BUT DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF BRUSHING UP AGAINST THEM

IN THE BRINY DEEP. THE ORGANISMS THAT THEY ARE MADE UP OF

WILL EMBED THEMSELVES IN YOUR SKIN, AS I WELL KNOW.

THIS 4-STRAND (11") BEAUTY HAS A VINTAGE, BAR TAB STYLE STERLING SILVER CLASP TO ACCOMODATE ALL FOUR STRANDS.





(3) ANY SUNSTONE INTERESTS ME, THE AFRICAN SUNSTONE IS ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT.

WITH TINY FLECKS OF ALL THE PRIMARY COLORS INSIDE IT, CREATING A FLASH OF COLOR, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS IN THE SUN.

EVEN THOUGH THE PREDOMINANT COLOR IS ORANGE, WHEN SEEN WITH THE NAKED EYE, WHEN SEEN UNDER A MAGNIFYING GLASS, THE INDIVIDUAL RED, YELLOW, BLUE AND GREEN STAND APART, BUT SUSPENDED TOGETHER IN A SOLID FORM.

IT IS A LESSON IN 'SEEING THE FOREST FOR THE TREES'.

WHAT IS HIDDEN CAN BE REVEALED, BUT ONLY TO THOSE WHO CARE ENOUGH TO LOOK DEEPER.









(4) FOSSILIZED CORAL IS MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD.

THIS (14.5") CENTURION HAS WEATHERED STORMS, THE LIKES OF WHICH WE CAN ONLY IMAGINE.

I ADDED OLD STERLING SILVER BEADS TO THE STRAND TO GIVE THE INDIVIDUAL BEADS SOME 'SPACE'.

ITS DEEP RED REVEALS THE FACT THAT IT HAS RETAINED ITS ORIGINAL COLOR, DESPITE ALL THAT THE WORLD HAS THROWN AT IT. IT IMPARTS RESILIENCE TO THE WEARER.

THE ABILITY TO WEATHER ANY STORM WITH THE GRACE OF IMPARTIALITY IS ITS GIFT.






(5) MOOKITE, OR MOUKITE, AS IT IS OFTEN SPELLED, IS AN UPLIFTING STONE TO WEAR,

AS ARE MOST YELLOW STONES.

WITH ITS DEEP WINE-PURPLE-RED AS ANOTHER PART OF ITS JASPER VARIATIONS, THIS

PIECE SPEAKS TO US FROM THE ANCESTORS AND PRESENT-DAY NATIVES OF AUSTRALIA.

IT IS A HIGHLY REVERED STONE FOR THEM, AND THEY SAY IT BRINGS OUR LONG-BURIED GIGGLES TO THE SURFACE, REMINDING US TO KEEP OUR CHILD-LIKE NATURE ALIVE AND WELL.

IT IS (11") OF FUN TO WEAR ON THOSE DAYS WHEN UP SEEMS LIKE DOWN, AND SIDEWAYS IS JUST NOT AN OPTION.

THE STERLING SILVER HOOP EARRINGS EACH CARRY 5 INDIVIDUAL SPHERES OF MOOKITE,

JUST TO KEEP THINGS IN BALANCE.



THIS INTRODUCTION TO THE REDS, ORANGES, AND A FEW QUIRKY YELLOWS, IS A FIRST GLIMPSE AT SOME STONES YOU MIGHT BE JUST NOW SEEING FOR THE FIRST TIME.


ALL THE NECKLACES WITH CLASPS THAT ARE 'LOBSTER-STYLE', ARE EASILY LENGTHENED

WITH THE USE OF A 'SPACER' THAT I CAN PROVIDE.

IT IS A LENGTH OF A FEW INCHES OF SMALL BEADS WITH A CLASP ON ONE END, AND A RING ON THE OTHER. QUITE HANDY FOR CONVERTING A CHOKER-LENGTH NECKLACE TO A LONGER ONE.

ONE OF THE TRICKS TO WEARING NECKLACES, IS ADJUSTING THE LENGTH OF THE NECKLACE TO ACCOMODATE DIFFERENT BLOUSE OR DRESS NECKLINES...ALL QUITE FUSSY, I KNOW, BUT TRUE.

I ENJOY TURNING PEOPLE ONTO MY STONE FRIENDS. BYE FOR NOW!
