Feeling (attracted to the colour) black?


Wearing the colour black is a tribute to the darkness of night.  It is the primordial void, a MYSTIC ALLURE, a colour that lacks colour, ranging from being authoritative with zero tolerance in its obscurest origins to seeking neutrality and compromise as the shades lighten.


Black is real sensation,
even if it is produced
by entire absence of light.

~ Hermann von Helmholtz
(physician & physicist,
1821-1894) 

Snowflake Obsidian has inclusions of spherulite which give us vision to see what no longer serves us. While it helps ground & protect us it boosts our confidence & self-esteem and balances the body, mind & soul.


A powerful confidence & self-esteem booster

Magnetism of Mystic Allure


The pure Magnetism of black earth stone crystals bestows upon your auric field inner balance for body, mind & soul where surrender to stillness resurrects empowerment. Be mesmerised by Mystic Allure‘s volcanic opalescence & transcend beyond illusion into a world of your own illuminated creation.


Faith is an invisible & invincible magnet;
it
 attracts to itself whatever it fervently
desires 
& calmly & persistently expects.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
(essayist, lecturer, & poet,
1803-1882)
