We all know that our precious stones and crystals have an interesting geological make up, and fascinating mythology, but is there anything to the shapes and cuts crafted into jewellery? Here is something else to consider when looking for your next unique piece from Made In Earth 💎
Geodes and Clusters are natural rocks with crystal-lined cavities forming from a single base, they are completely unique, occasionally occurring with multiple mineral formations. The term "Geode" comes from the Greek word "Geodes" meaning "Earth-like."
In metaphysical beliefs, geodes are believed to possess great power due to their multiple points, aiding in intuition and communication with divine beings. They are also associated with elevating moods and balancing energies.
Obelisks are considered significant and powerful shapes in the ancient world, with Scholars believing that they represented eternity, immortality, and served as a connection between the heavens and the earth. The tip of an obelisk was believed to attract cosmic energy which is then released through the base.
In crystal healing practices, points within obelisks are thought to possess medicinal properties, increasing vitality and focusing energy on to alleviate pain in specific areas.

Double-terminated crystals are unique crystals that have points at both ends. Unlike geodes and clusters which grow from a matrix, double-terminated crystals grow from a central "seed," resulting in two points in opposite directions.

As a result, they are considered powerful tools for spiritual practices and can offer protection like an energy shield when worn. Double-terminated crystals are seen as valuable allies for energy work and spiritual grounding purposes. Overall, these crystals are known for their dual directional energy flow and protective properties.
Freeform Crystals and Gems are precious stones that are not cut or polished into a specific shape, and are left in their natural state. They are believed to maintain their full healing properties due to their lack of shape or form. These unique and organic statement pieces are appreciated by those who value the natural world.
