Wabi Sabi 044
One of my personal favorites: A stunning 0.22 carat chartreuse Sphene from Pakistan faceted in the 6-Petal flower design by artist John Bailey and installed in Basanite collected in Oregon.
Sphene (titanite) is rarely found in gem quality. It has higher dispersive power than Diamond – a mesmerizing quality that invites trance-like enjoyment. No wonder it is thought to open connections to “higher realms” and spirit guides…
Basanite is one of the rarer Jaspers. Prized by many as a scrying stone, it is said to help discern what is hidden and to protect against curses and dangers.
