Have You Had Your Greens Today?
FIND YOURS AT FRENCH DESIGNER JEWELER
Everyone says greens are good for you! Rather than increasing your kale intake we recommend more energizing greens. Green has always been associated with the fertile energy of Mother Earth. By choosing a green gemstone to work with you are aligning yourself with the healing energy of nature.
Green is Associated with the Heart Chakra
A stunning 3.91 ct green Tourmaline with 27 diamonds set in 18k yellow gold in a unique Sepkus setting.
In the metaphysical world the healing power of green coupled with the strong energy work that Tourmaline is known for can quickly purify and align your energy while infusing it with the love of life and adventure of everyday living.
Tourmalines are the most colorful of all gemstones. Scientifically, Tourmaline is not a single mineral but a group of minerals related in their chemical and physical properties. Sometimes in the gem trade green tourmaline is referred to as Elbaite. Deposits of Tourmaline are found in multiple locations around the world.
