Rose Quartz and Fresh Water Pearl Ankle Bracelet
This handcrafted anklet features healing crystal gemstone beads of Rose Quartz and Fresh Water Pearls. Pearls are created inside shellfish as a way to protect from irritants such as sand and grit that gets inside its shell. This method of production is what gives Pearls their irridiscent shimmer as the "nacre" they excrete contains millions of platelets of Aragonite, a crystallized Calcium Carbonate (aka Calcite). Most Pearls found on the market today are cultured rather than found in the ocean. Cultured Pearls can be grown in fresh or salt water inside a variety of different shellfish. It takes approximately 7 years for one Pearl to form. The Pearls we used in this design are cultured in fresh water. They are bean shaped and measures approximately 4x5mm. Their stunning irridescence is the perfect companion for the Rose Quartz (4mm). Rose Quartz, just like Pearl, belong to the Water Element. They work to soothe and calm our emotions with their tranquil energy. Pearls also serve to remind us that it is through overcoming challenges that they form, just as we must learn and grow from our own trying times, instead of focusing on just the negative aspects of them. They are aligned with the Third Eye Chakra and encourage us to seek wisdom and truth by trusting our intuitive guidance. Rose Quartz is a Heart Chakra Crystal that works to heal our emotional wounds and self-imposed negativity so we can begin to love ourselves completely. This opens our hearts allowing us to give and receive love from others! As designed this ankle bracelet measures 9", but other sizes are available. It will be delivered on our signature bracelet tag, in a custom handcrafted box.
