The descriptions below are short examples of the facts that go with each rock, along with a brief description of the rock's primary colour and detail:
Amethyst (light or dark purple with white details): ‘Amethyst’ comes from the Greek word for ‘intoxicated’ as it was believed to protect the owner from drunkenness.
Blue Goldstone (dark blue with sparkling starry details): Sometimes called ‘Stellaria’ from the Persian for star stone.
Hematite (silvery black metallic): Grey hematite is often found near mineral hot springs or as a result of volcanic activity. It has also been found on Mars.
Howlite (pure white with grey vein details): Tends to form in irregular nodules, resembling a cauliflower.
Onyx (deep black): Used in ancient Egypt to make dinnerware, and is mentioned multiple times in the Bible.
Rose Quartz (dusty light pink colour): Quartz is an abundant mineral, making up around 12% of the Earth’s crust.
Rutilated Quartz (dusty light grey with spears of black titanium): Rutilated quartz has been referred to as Cupid’s Darts, Venus Hair Stones, and Fleches d’amour.
Smoky quartz (transparent smoky grey-brown colour): In the 12th Century, flat panes of smoky quartz were used for sunglasses in China.
Sodalite (primarily blue with white details): Named after its high sodium content.
Tiger's Eye (shiny stone in various brown tones): Unsurprisingly, it has the look of a tiger’s eye; there is also a blue variety called Hawk’s eye.
