lol, well pearls technically aren't a gem since they were created by a living creature and not geological processes http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

maybe that is why they are unlucky???

Re: Do gem stones have significance for the ndn...

LOL the term NDN is used up in Canada as well , I've been  using it for  years as have family n friends its pretty much a term used across the board.

 I have an Opel and Obsidion set in silver as a bracelt my first husband who was NDN had made for me by a Navajo friend of his, he said it was to help balance things and the Obsidion was to help with protection and my medicine work. I still have and love that peice today but can't wear it very often as one of the silver bands on the back has cracked over the years. I can't find anyone over here who would even attempt to try n repair it unfortunatly. I'm hopeing that I will find someone when I head back later this year as Im heading down to the  corners. I just want to be able to wear that peicie again.

I also know that its the combination of stones and the designs they are set in that also have a significant meaning, so its the whole thing as it works together.

I use all kinds of stones with the stuff I do most dont carry the same meaning as you 'd find in any of the new age books, but to me I know what they are relevent for. As my first husband always said, if you don't know go an ask the stones.

Religion is for people who are afraid of hell......
Spirituality is for those who have already been there......

I think w e have sort of expanded the thread lol and that in itsself is good.. Im no Geologist but I have a cousin who is.. His career grew from collecting rocks and crystals as a boy..

I use crystals in Healing and find rough unpolished to be the more powerful...I have a few tumble ones that were bought in USA and given to me later  but they are more of a keep sake for that perdon has now passed..
When my mother passed, I was given a small gem stone to help with grieving,  which was polished it is called an Apache Tear.. I keep it in my small medicine bag to wear at Pow wows and situation where I need to wear regalia like lecturing. 

i have several beautiful Silica wands too, they look and feel beautiful to me..

I have Obsideum too mine is a Snow flake variety which is for Protection and Grounding..I have pretty much owned mine for many years.. I wasn't aware that 'New Age books' had altered the meanings lol as my bools are old too..

Maiken I hope you find a silversmith willing to repair the bracelet..I found that any repairs over here are through the roof..For example £80 to resize a ring of my mothers so that I could wear it..
