  Item #292             Lost in Fire
This stylized ice bear is carved from a rock crystal with interesting inclusions (check out the detailed photo). The necklace is made with glowing polished-hole quartz chips, a few carved quartz melons, bears and other quartz shapes, and a bit of turquoise. It is strung on cable for strength, and is signed and dated. What exactly is the difference between rock crystal and quartz? "Rock crystal" refers to clear quartz, a form of silicon dioxide free from any impurity in the crystal lattice that produces color.

Kunz relates that Morales (1604) gave control of rock crystal to the moon. A 1910 text published by the Smithsonian declares that rock crystal was used as a "fetich" by the Cherokee to give aid in hunting and for divining. Quartz is a New Age cliche, but that doesn't change the fact that it is incredibly powerful, said to have an organizing and harmonizing effect on all parts of the body.

The bear, powerful western animal, reminds us to hibernate once in a while, dream and practice introspection. This little bear has practiced introspection to the point of achieving a rare transparency! Please invite this bear into your life.
