About Our Stones
We create our Happy Stacks from combinations of:
- black onyx, obsidian, snow obsidian
- white snow quartz, howlite, mountain jade
- pink mountain jade, rose quartz, smokey rose quartz
Onyx Traditionally, onyx has been considered a powerful protection stone. Black onyx absorbs and transforms negative energy and helps to prevent the drain of personal energy. It aids the development of emotional and physical strength and stamina, especially when support is needed during times of stress, confusion or grief. (Hello, 2020!)
Obsidian Likewise, obsidian has been considered a truth-enhancing material. A strongly protective stone, obsidian forms a shield against negativity. It blocks psychic attacks and absorbs negative energies from the environment. Obsidian draws out mental stress and tension.
Milky Quartz For millenia, quartz has been used to remove negative energies. It’s valued for its ability to ward off and dispel negative thoughts and emotions. It’s also recommended when you need spiritual healing and conditioning.
Rose Quartz Since ancient trimes, rose quartz has been used to lower stress and tension in the heart, and also remove anger, jealousy, and resentment of others. It allows healing of heart issues and disease associated with holding on to such negative emotions. Known as a romance stone, rose quartz can be used to attract love.
Howlite Howlite has long been used to strengthen memory and stimulate desire for knowledge. It teaches patience and helps to eliminate rage, pain and stress. A calming stone, howlite calms communication, facilitates awareness and encourages emotional expression.
Jade Another protective stone, jade has been used to keep the wearer safe from harm and encourage harmony. Jade attracts good luck and friendship, and stabilises the personality and promotes self-sufficiency. Jade also soothes the mind, releasing negative thoughts.
Rhodonite A compassion stone, rhodonite is believed to be an emotional balancer that clears away mental scars from the past and nurtures love. It is also traditionally believed to stimulate, clear, and activate the heart. It grounds energy, balances yin and yang, and reminds you strive for your highest potential. It heals emotional shock and panic, and aids in cases of emotional self-destruction, codependency and abuse. It encourages unselfish self-love and forgiveness, promotes calm in dangerous or upsetting situations, builds confidence, and alleviates confusion.
Care and Feeding
To ensure the best care, roll the bracelet on or off your wrist instead of pulling or stretching the elastic cord and beads.
Repetitive pulling over time can cause the elastic to stretch and weaken.
We use a very strong, very high quality stretch band, but if the bracelets are repeatedly yanked, pulled, or stretched the cord will eventually snap. You’ll want to keep the stretching to a minimum — just a tender roll onto the wrist will do!
Our standard size has a 7" circumference and features a sturdy stretch band that should fit most wrists. If you need a larger or smaller size, please reach out to me — because we make these ourselves we can easily customize for you!
