While in Atlanta, I came across a stone that looked like the night sky. At first, I thought it was a type of Goldstone, but upon picking it up it felt a lot heavier than the manmade gem that also sparkles like the night sky.. 

I read the label and discovered its name is Specular Hematite, also known as Specularite. 

Hematite is a mineral that is made up of iron oxide. It has a smooth metallic feel to it which is probably due to the iron. Specular Hematite is a bit different. This mineral has mica which makes it look like you are holding a piece of the night sky in your hand. Some say that it’s not Mica but very It’s a type of Hematite that seems to have the appearance of tiny shiny mica flakes that are actually made from hematite. In fact, it gets the name Specular due to the mirror like specular reflection. Either way this is a great mineral for those who love all things Space.

 

Some Metaphysical Properties

Specular Hematite is known to dissolve negativy in all forms. There’s even a magnetic Specular Hematite (I’ve got to get my hands on it!) that helps balances your energy (think yin yang). It a stone that helps you to find your talent and focus on it and also helps you to let go of self-blame. Each tiny “star” in this gem reminds us that we are all starts that have a spark of light. Let it be a visual reminder that you are worthy and that you matter.

Let's Get Stoned in 2020!

Let’s Get Stoned! 2020 is a new ebook that isn’t an ebook. It used to be but I am doing something really cool with it.

I wanted to create something interactive–something that you would enjoy more than just downloading a file, reading through it and then forgetting about it.

So instead of making a file, I decided to host the actual book on my blog and make it interactive in monthly chapters. This means that every month, there is an update with gems and minerals that I have in my collection or have worked with–things that I don’t share on the blog.

And I’m GivingAway  Free Access!

All you have to do is subscribe. Your email will not be used for promotional products (jewelry sales, new posts etc,) but only for the updates to Let’s Get Stoned! 2020.

Also, if you sign up before Mardi Gras, you’re automatically entered into my Carnival Giveaway in which I am giving away an Amethyst Pendant.

Hi, I’m Johnna

I’m an artist from Shreveport, LA who learned the art of wire wrapping gems and minerals into jewelry from Grammy winning musician, Daryl Thompson, who became like a father to me.

He is the one who intrudoced me to the healing world of crystals and I have been learning every since.

This world is ancient but can be applied to modern day times. 

My life is hectic–I work from home, am mothering a kitten who almost died, and am living the life of my dreams.

However, we always have to stay grounded and what keeps me grounded is working with the healing gifts of the mineral kingdom to create something.

Every single one of my jewelry designs has a person that is meant just for it.
