Also called spondylus princeps, is found in the sea off the coast of Baja California, Mexico. Spondylus is a Latin word meaning “spines on its back.” Beautiful oranges, reds, white, purple. This stone of the sea carries the energies of the water, cool comfort and peace of mind from the dark depths of the sea, and a sense of understanding, patience, & knowing from the rhythm of the tides.

Opal is a naturally-occurring amorphous solid known for its flashes of fire color. An amorphous solid is a material that, unlike crystal, is not organised in a regular lattice pattern. This makes for some unusual interactions with light, and is explicable for opal’s rainbow colours.
