Peacock Ore / Bornite

Peacock Ore (Bornite) is a crystaline variety of Chalcopyrite and they have very similar properties. Bornite is the name of the natural, untreated stone, while Peacock Ore usually describes its heat-enhanced state. Bornite has naturally occuring rainbow colours, but they are rare in nature. It is useful in providing protection from outside negativity; it also helps you to recognise the source of the negativity. It is a colourful stone for helping to dismiss grey days by inspiring hope and lifting your mood. As with the bird it is named after, its display is an inspiration and reminder that life is not limited to a mundane combination of atoms, but permeated by a magic that does not cease to exist because we cannot always perceive it! Bornite is an excellent healing stone. It can be used to assist in the building and re-building of your physical body. It renews perfection to cellular growth, composition and arrangement. It performs a major role in the amelioration of the origin, nature and course of disease, and it is quite useful in the treatment of imbalances in cellular metabolism and in alterations of tissue formations within your body.

Pentagram Star

A pentagram (sometimes known as a star pentagon) is the shape of a five-pointed star drawn with five straight strokes. The Golden Ratio plays an important role in regular pentagons and pentagrams, further its connection to the Fibonacci sequence and the orderly creation and balance of all life. The pentagram was a symbol of Jesus for early Christians who associated it with his planet (Venus!), which drew a pentagram in the morning sky throughout its orbit. It was sacred to followers of Venus and Aphrodite for the same phenomenon. European pagans used it as a symbol of the unity of the Universe's five elements - air, earth, fire, water and ether - and the Chinese also attributed their five elements to it. It seems that nearly every culture has a story for this star, which is the simplest regular star polygon! In Sacred Geometry, it is used for connecting to Divine Source and the powerful manifestation energy within.

Peridot

Peridot is associated with your Heart Chakra, and can be used to balance and stimulate its energy. It is a stone of compassion and has a friendly energy that is excellent for healing. It assists in rebirth and renewal of all kinds. Peridot also brings abundance and prosperity. It enhances the healing and harmony of relationships of all kinds, but particularly marriage. Peridot can lessen stress in relationships, anger and jealousy, slow the aging process, and heal ulcers and digestive problems. It assists in finding lost objects and knowledge, and strengthens psychic abilities. It creates a shield of protection around your body, especially potent for protecting your emotional well being.

Petalite

Petalite is an energiser that creates movement where there is none, so it’s perfect for imbalances and stagnant or blocked energy. It is a protective stone that can soothe and smooth your aura, allowing total relaxation and peace to fill you. It initiates the movement of Kundalini energy, creating an energy vortex where the crystal is placed, allowing for a stream of energy to continually flow into the area so it re-balances and stabilises your body’s energy. It is sometimes called an Angel Stone as it easily attunes you to higher frequencies while maintaining your Earthly connection, bridging both worlds. Physically, use it anywhere you need to spark new light into like a tumour, cancer, HIV/AIDS, or chronic fatigue. It works at a cellular level to restore balance and regenerate cells.

Astrological sign: Leo

Petrified Wood

Petrified Wood is fossilised ancient wood. The cellular structure of the wood has been preserved with various minerals, creating a lasting replica of the original. It’s a stone of adaptability and can help you to release worry, and not sweat the small stuff. Working with it can encourage you to remove whatever bogs you down, and motivate you to move forward bravely, step-by-step; to focus on the task-at-hand. It is both grounding and inspiring. Working with it can nudge you to go boldly forward and reach for the sky, one step at a time. It can help you download the ‘why’ of any situation that is frustrating you, to understand what the lesson in it is, so that you can move on. It can help you grow beyond your current situation, step out of your comfort zone, and feel supported at the same time. It helps you to focus on what you can actually change - and to hell with the rest! You can use it in physical healing to strengthen your spine and bones. Elements such as Manganese, Iron and Copper in the water/mud during the petrification process give Petrified Wood a variety of colour ranges. Pure Quartz crystals are colourless, but when contaminants are added to the process the crystals take on a yellow, red or other tint. The following is a list of contaminating elements and related colour hues: carbon – black cobalt – green/blue chromium – green/blue copper – green/blue iron oxides – red, brown, and yellow manganese – pink/orange manganese oxides – black

Phantom Quartz

Phantom Crystals are identified as a ghost-like version of the overall crystal. Sometimes its only of one angle, sometimes a full 3D smaller version of the crystal that floats suspended inside. It marks a crystal’s growth for us to see; where it has stopped growing and then begun again, each time a layer of another mineral is added in between. Sometimes there are even multiple layers stacked so close together they appear solid and other times the space is more like steps progressing up the inside of the crystal. Phantoms can be used to go through your past, your own layers, to understand that everything that happens is part of your life, your story and your beauty. It can be on a larger scale too, like the Earth’s growth recorded for you to access. Inner beauty is revealed through lack of growth, halted progression and seeming trouble. Layers of stuff are placed upon you, and then once you grow past the stuff, your most magnificent self is the culmination of all the stops and starts! You are magnificent because of your past. Embrace it and step out for all to see. Phantoms teach you about the process of life and growth, and how to overcome obstacles to see life as a wondrous journey. Phantoms are to be used for the redemption and cleansing of the Earth. The phantom in each crystal works to bring together the participants of humanity to save the planet. They are excellent sources in initiating healing, and they can also be used to access the Akashic Records of ones progression through your past lives.

Phantom Quartz: Chlorite

All of the properties of Phantom Quartz, plus: In my experience, the Chlorite inclusions in Quartz are divinely connected to nature. They are often filled nature spirits and fairies who tend to the gardens within the Quartz. Chlorite helps you to feel connected to the Earth, nature, animals and encourages you to look after your planet. Chlorite Phantom crystals combine the energy of the Quartz crystal with one of the most powerful healing minerals in the kingdom. They are used to stimulate the state of inspiration and to further actualization. Use a Chlorite Phantom to remove limiting beliefs. The Phantom remembers and helps you to go back to the time the belief was conceived so that its removal is easy. Chlorite also assists in healing the void which remains after the removal of the belief. Used on your Crown Chakra, it aligns your Chakras and centers your energy. It assists in seeing and in understanding the stages of your life and acts to provide insight into the changes required to promote peace and happiness within your life.

Pietersite

Pietersite is an anchor for Angelic energy here on Earth. It dispels illusion, assisting you in recognising the beauty of the soul and helping you to support human courage, tenacity and dauntless effort to create and maintain beauty on this planet. The Angels working through Pietersite work with a particular calm and joyous peacefulness which is very uplifting and helps dissolve confusion and fear about what lies ahead for the Earth. Pietersite helps relax and release limits you place on your creativity and allows you to recognise your divine potential. It can be used to stimulate the pineal gland and help you experience visions and precognitive thoughts during a meditative state. It facilitates travel through all spheres of existence, culminating in access to the Akashic Records. It is also invaluable when experiencing or releasing deep emotions as it calms emotional outbursts and upheavals – hence its name of Tempest Stone (although I feel its storm-tossed appearance also contributes to this – maybe something to do with the doctrine of signatures here?). It shows your subconscious a new structure that does not recognise the blocks you feel in your relationships. It helps heal your physical body as it releases emotional restrictions on using your powers of healing yourself and others. It helps you to trust yourself in using love and allows your heart to expand and release its blocks and fears. It helps you to align your conscious will with your soul’s will. It will help any Chakra to open and integrate its energy with the rest of your body, helping you learn to use the many dimensions of light available for your creativity.

Pyramid

In geometry, a pyramid is a polyhedron formed by connecting a polygonal base and a point, called the apex. Each base edge and apex form a triangle. When the base is a perfect square, some interesting things happen! Pyramids and their unique shape create enhanced energy fields. They are described as a kind of cosmic antenna, tuning into the sources of energy. People have reported enhanced effects when meditating with crystal pyramids and changes in the meditator’s aura or electromagnetic field have been noted with Kirlian photography. Auras will become brighter and larger within the individual’s etheric body. The positive energy flow of the pyramid facilitates deep focus and healing. A pyramid will aid in meditation because of its innate ability to focus on harmonious energy while deflecting distracting energies that are mis-aligned energy. It will guard against external interference while helping sort through your own personal thoughts. In the reflective state, the pyramid will assist you with a more rewarding and deeper healing mediation. They facilitate deep relaxation, enhanced well-being and increased levels of awareness.
