ABOUT THE ITEM: -These beautiful rings feature raw warm vibrant carnelian stones on copper bands. This ring was handmade using pure copper for the setting, hammered, and then electroformed to create a bezel for the crystal. The ring is then coated with a patina and special sealing wax. Electroforming is an organic process that creates a coat of copper on items using an electric current. The process can last from anywhere between 24 to 48 hours. Because of it's organic nature, each piece created in this process is unique and has beautiful imperfections and textures. Along with the protection from the wax, you should not shower or submerge the jewelry in water. Because your jewelry is made of copper, it will age over time but can become shiny again with a nice polish. :) All of the pieces offered at The Mountain Druidess are made with intention and feature fully charged crystals. To recharge your jewelry use the sun's and moon's rays because they are very energizing, as well as energetically clearing. You can use this method to both clear and charge your crystals at the same time. Find a safe place and leave your crystal for 24 hours or more (up to a week) in sunlight and/or moonlight. CRYSTAL MEANINGS: -Carnelian is said to attract prosperity, new resources and good luck. It is a talisman for success in any money-making venture.

Its bold energy brings a rush of warmth and joy that lingers, stimulating and empowering.
