The Wisdom Index

Welcome to the Wisdom Index! Here, you will find all kinds of information on the symbolism of the various stones featured on our sacred jewelry pieces. We cover the meaning of each stone, as well as its corresponding physical healing properties.

To make a well-informed decision on the stone that will best accompany you and your Winged One on The East Gate experience, read through the glossary below.

Amethyst – Perception, Intuition, Third Eye Chakra

Perhaps one of the more popular stones we see in use, amethyst is often revered for its ability to provide clarity.

Thus, it makes sense that it aligns with our sixth chakra, otherwise known as the Third Eye — which, consequently, is purple in color like the amethyst stone itself.

The unseeable Third Eye, located in the space between our eyebrows, is often called forth in yoga and meditation. It is believed to represent our untapped wisdom, the things we cannot see until we close our eyes and connect with ourselves.

Therefore, amethyst provides us the ability to connect with our innermost intuitive senses, allowing us to better illuminate our path ahead.

It is believed to alleviate the following ailments:

  • Brain fog and lethargy
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Insomnia
  • Respiratory issues

Chrysocolla – Tranquility, Balance, Heart Chakra

The vividly green hue of Chrysocolla is reminiscent of the coloring of trees, fauna, and various varieties of lush vegetation that coat the Earth’s surface. And, much like when watching a flower or gazing up at a tree, it elicits a response of serenity.

Chrysocolla provides an emotional detox, drawing out negative thoughts and intentions, replacing them with sensitivity and tolerance.

It is an ideal stone for those experiencing general feelings of unease and anxiety — and often, it will help them get to the root cause of those feelings.

It is believed to alleviate the following ailments:

  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Muscle cramps and spasms
  • Muscle weakness

Labradorite – Transformation, Courage, Throat Chakra

Labradorite is our trademark stone — and for good reason. This blue-green stone is frequently associated with transformation. It is thought to bring its owner the strength he or she requires to undergo difficult changes and weather existential or spiritual crises.

Much like the Soul itself, labradorite can take many shapes and forms. Sometimes it is undeniably green, others it is crisply blue, and occasionally it even appears a vibrant violet. Its flexible colorways are representative of the necessary bending of the human spirit to achieve what it most wants.

Labradorite is believed to stimulate the fifth chakra, the throat chakra, which is responsible for communication and expression. It is believed to impact to alleviate the following ailments:

  • Overwhelming stress & anxiety
  • Chronic overthinking
  • Irregular metabolism
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Menstrual tension
  • Rheumatism and other auto-immune disorders
  • Gastrointestinal upset

Lapis – Protection, Wisdom, Third Eye Chakra

Lapis lazuli, also known as lapis for short, carries a powerful purpose. It guards its owner against mental and emotional harm, acting as a protective barrier between the wearer and those who carry ill intentions toward them.

The bold blue color of lapis inspires the same boldness in those who carry it. It brings a newfound sense of self-awareness, truth-seeking, and profound wisdom that can aid its carrier (and those with whom its carrier comes into contact with) with making the right decisions.

Its association with wisdom and knowledge comes with its connection to the Third Eye chakra, known for evoking clarity.

It is believed to alleviate the following ailments:

  • Inflammation
  • Depression
  • Thyroid imbalance
  • Nervous system disorders

Rose Quartz – Love, Relationships, Heart Chakra

Rose Quartz is a blush-colored stone typically used among those searching for love, healing from heartbreak, and undergoing tension in their relationships.

It can be used by individuals or couples to bring forth a prayer of unity, friendship, and nurturing.

Its alignment with the fourth chakra, the heart chakra, speaks to its association with affection and compassion. It is not only intended for use in romantic contexts, however.

It can also be used to encourage self-love, familial harmony, mother-child bonding, deeper friendships, and overall peace among humankind and your community.

It is believed to alleviate the following ailments:

  • High blood pressure
  • Vertigo
  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Discomfort during pregnancy

Pyrite – Success, Intelligence, Solar Plexus Chakra

Derived from the Greek root “pyr”, which means “fire”, the golden hue of this stone definitely ignites a sense of purpose in its wearer. This powerful stone is believed to lend mental clarity, allowing those who wear it to attract prosperity and good fortune.

It’s no coincidence that Pyrite is linked to the third chakra, or Solar Plexus chakra. This chakra, located between the breastbone and the abdomen, is known to supply warrior energy, unshakable determination, and self assurance.

Pyrite is believed to alleviate the following ailments:

  • Colds, flus, and other infectious diseases
  • Fears & phobias
  • Inflammation
  • Bronchitis
  • Asthma
