STONES: This charm has been hand inlaid with Pink Opal, Variscite and Turquoise
Australian Pink Opal’s formation happened over many centuries in a locality known as Mooka Station (which is why this stone is also called Mookaite) in Western Australia, in an area where a great inland sea once existed.
Variscite is a rare mineral originally discovered in Variscia, Germany in 1837. but the most sought after Variscite specimens in the world come from the Little Green Monster Mine, in Utah.
Turquoise's history as a spiritual stone goes back over 7500 years. Whereas Egyptians prized Turquoise as a Life Stone, Native Americans believed the stone brought protection to a rider upon a horse, and great protection in general. Turquoise was also highly revered in Tibet, where a stone was carried throughout one’s entire life and the material was exchanged as currency, the finest stones being more valuable than gold.
Even though turquoise is found around the world, the right type of minerals must be in just the right place for a very long time (millions of years) before Turquoise is finally created.
