Feeling (attracted to the colour) brown?


It eagerly says reliability, stability & approachability. It is the colour of our earth & is therefore associated with all things natural or organic. Without being boring, it provides a sense of wholesomeness & order.


God had a brown voice, as soft & full as beer.
 ~Anne Sexton
 (poet & Pulitzer Prize winner, 1928-1974)

Labradorite – a stone of transformation, mystical & protective in nature – strengthens trust in the Universe. Fears & insecurities are banished & immaterial. Wearing Labradorite stimulates analysis & rational thought & joins forces with inner sight.


—  Reinstates trust in the Universe

Anima of Dire Wolf


The properties of Anima, the life force that harnesses the energy of both sun & moon, amalgamate with all brown crystals – opaque or translucent. As they protect, ground & balance, let the dark brown hues of Dire Wolf cover you in times of welcome solace & inspiration.


Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist
but the ability to start over.
~F. Scott Fitzgerald
(author of novels & short stories, 1896-1940)
