TUCSON 2019
Posted by Dakota Stones to Articles

Since we ALL can't go down to the Tucson Gem shows this year (sniff, sniff) we are bringing you some highlights. Here are some of our most recent arrivals that we saved out just for you!



Cat’s Eye is a quartz stone that appears in a range of colors including white, gray, green, yellow and brown. The fibrous asbestos inclusions in the stone give it the flash that inspired its name. It is a form of Chrysoberyl, the third to hardest common natural gemstone, with a Mohs Hardness of 8.5, between Topaz (8) and Corundum (9).

Metaphysical Attributes:
Healing, Prosperity, Happiness






With the possible exception of the horizon meeting the bright blue sky on a perfect summer day, or a sandy beach blending into a tropical bay, there may not be a beautiful blue-and-brown combination than that of Terra Agate. The rounds even resemble little Earths, the brown spaces creating new continents aside the unfamiliar oceans. A form of chalcedony made of quartz, Terra Agate contains the best of nature in a variety of small shapes.






Red Tiger Eye is actually Brown Tiger Eye which has been heat treated to bring out the red color. This macrocrystalline Quartz stone has chatoyant layers that create a flash which seems to emanate from within the stone as they catch the light. Tiger Eye has been revered and feared throughout history as an all-seeing, all-knowing eye, as well as a stone of prosperity, protection and good fortune.

Metaphysical Attributes:
Prosperity, Protection

Chakra:
Root, Sacral, Heart






Chrysocolla, a hydrous copper silicate, is often mistaken for turquoise due to its rich blues and blue to greens. It often also occurs with colors of rust, copper, black, white and reddish brown in speckles, veins and brecciated patterns. It is a very soft stone typically found near copper deposits. Chrysocolla was first described by Theosphrastus, a Greek philosopher and botanist who also named the stone, in 315 BCE.

Metaphysical Attributes:
Prosperity, Calming, Empowerment

Chakra:
Throat






Sunstone, a variety of Feldspar, is aptly named for its shades of gold, orange, red and brown, as well as its iridescent sparkle. As the stone catches the light, inclusions of Goethite or Hematite refract the light between the layers of the crystal, producing the effect of the stone seeming to shine from within.

Metaphysical Attributes:
Empowerment

Chakra:
Root, Sacral
