Encope Sea Urchin from Mexico

Echinoids (Sea Urchins)

The Echinoids possess a rigid, globular skeleton made up of columns of thin, calcite plates (ambulacrals and interambulacrals). The plates known as ambulacrals have small pores for tube feet. All plates have swollen tubercles for the ball-and-socket articulation of spines, which are used for defence and some-times for walking. Regular Echinoids, which forage on the sea bed show radial symmetry; irregular Echinoids, which usually burrow in soft sea beds, show bilateral symmetry.

Amethyst is a violet coloured variety of quartz and is often used in such things as jewellery. It can be found in a wide range of countries though most commonly from Brazil & Uruguay.

Amethyst is said to be the stone of spirituality and contentment. It may provide the feeling of common sense and encourage flexibility in decisions. It controls temperament by imparting a soothing, calming, and tranquillising influence, while clearing away unproductive and unkind vibrations.

It’s also said to used in the treatment of hearing disorders, to both strengthen the skeletal system and reinforce ones posture, and to simulate both the sympathetic nervous system and the endocrine glands to proper and precise performance. It’s is said to be quite useful in the treatment of disorders of the nervous system, digestive tract, heart, stomach, skin and teeth. It can may help cellular disorders to re-adjust and re-align in order to eliminate distressful conditions.
It’s also said to help the treatment of insomnia and to ameliorate pain from headaches and other disorders and may be as an elixir in the treatment of arthritis.

The name comes from the Ancient Greek ἀ a- ("not") and μέθυστος methustos ("intoxicated”) The ancient Greeks and Romans wore Amethyst and made drinking vessels out of it in the belief that would prevent intoxication (drunkenness)

Blue John is a semi-precious mineral, a form of Fluorite with bands of purple-blue or yellowish colour. In the UK it is found only at Blue John Cavern and Treak Cliff Cavern at Castleton in Derbyshire.

During the 19th century, it was mined for its ornamental valve, and mining continues on a small scale.

Blue John said to help stimulate spontaneity and emboldens one to brave the unknown. Considered to encourage altruistic pursuits, enkindle trust, and help one to make good decisions. A stone of the Third Eye and Crown Chakras, Blue John may bring a sense of deep peace and clarity of mind, and during times of confusion or despair.

The name Blue John is believed to come from French 'bleu-yellow', and is also referred to as Derbyshire Blue John and Derbyshire Spar.

Chrysocolla
Chrysocolla is a hydrous copper silicate, most frequently the colour is green, blue or blue-green, though impurities can darken it to brown or black. it’s crystal system is amorphous, and it occurs mostly in closely packed aggregates, and sometimes in botryoidal, stalactite, fibrous or earthy forms. Chrysocolla is frequently found in oxidised copper deposits, often in association with Malachite and Azurite. Some Chrysocolla stones also contain Cuprite and these combination stones have their own unique blend of energies. Chrysocolla deposits have been found in Chile, Zaire, Russia and the USA.

Chrysocolla is said to assist one in owning the value of one’s experiences, knowledge and contribution. It may help one feel more secure when communicating with others and may also help dispel fear in social situations or when one is speaking in a highly charged emotional situation.
Physically Chrysocolla is believed to help assist in the release of stress, anxiety and other fear-based imbalances in the body. It may assist in the regulation of the thyroid and adrenals. It considered to be an excellent for sore throats, laryngitis and for support of the larynx in general.

Cleoniceras is a rather involute, high-whorled hoplitid from the Lower to basal Middle Albian of Europe, Madagascar, and Transcaspian region. The shell has a generally small umbilicus, arched to acute venter, and typically at some growth stage, falcoid ribs that spring in pairs from umbilical tubercles, usually disappearing on the outer whorls.
