Our most innovative pieces -- Gem-quality Watermelon Tourmaline has been set atop glowing phosphorescent powder, then inlaid behind the transparent stone into the body of the Pinecone.
The powerful phosphorescent powder "charges" in natural sunlight (or UV lighting) and backlights the Watermelon Tourmaline -- causing the stone to glow all night long!

Traditionally used for scrying during shamanic rituals, Tourmaline is regarded as an excellent stone for all types of spiritual work, especially for insight and direction. Watermelon Tourmaline in particular is known as the "super-activator" of the heart chakra – linking it to the higher self and fostering love, tenderness, and friendship. It also has a strong affinity for the garden and plants, and is thought to enhance one's connection to the wisdom of the plant kingdom.
This Pinecone has been anointed with our "Merkaba" emblem, cast in Sterling Silver. Merkaba - "Mer" meaning Light, "Ka" meaning Spirit, and "Ba" meaning Body - is a powerful icon historically known as the "Vehicle of Ascension". The Merkaba opens the mind to increased awareness and promotes deep conscious interconnection.
