These Bar Studs are a Signature WhiteLightly Design where the beauty of natural gemstones create shape and form.
Galena is especially beautiful with an isometric crystal system, this means when the Galena crystals form in nature they grow in perfect cube shapes. The Galena mineral is a Lead Sulphide and includes other minerals like pure silver which gives it spectacular reflective properties. Galena is a very heavy stone with a Specific Gravity of 7.5 this refers to the denseness, or how heavy the gemstone is compared to an equal volume of water. Due to the cubic growth pattern and relative weight Galena is said to bring Harmony, Balance and Self Assurance.
Hematite is an iron oxide mineral that is usually silvery grey, it is found in abundance around the world and is the major mineral in most iron ore deposits. With a very high specific gravity Hematite is supportive and grounding and reminded us to be courageous in all we encounter.
