The Meaning and Types of Gemstones
Choosing a gemstone to accompany your seashell can bring the added benefit of the metaphysical properties of that stone. I personally cleanse and charge all of the gemstones and crystals with a Tibetan singing bowl and smudge them with sage. This clears any negative energy they may have accumulated. They are recharged by running purified water over them, and placing them in a bowl in moonlight whenever possible. I use the clear intent of sending them to you for their higher purpose.
All gemstones have a vibration, however, not all of them have the same effect on all people. To receive the greatest, individualized benefits from a gemstone, you must have a deep feeling for the stone. It is said that one does not choose the stone, but the stone chooses you. See how you feel when looking at and reading about each gemstone and choose the one that resonates with you.
Below is a list of each stone with the size that we carry and its inherent meaning. Seashells by nature will reduce negative energy around you, due to their time in the salt water, but why not personalized your necklace by adding strength, protection, courage or wisdom?

Metaphysical meaning of Natural Druzy:
The unique crystallized look of druzy is captivating. Druzy is generally a crystal cluster that grows on another gemstone and can sometimes pick up the properties of the stone that they are attached to. Their color can be translucent to opaque in beautiful, sand-like colors. For this reason, we love to pair them with seashells. We carry only natural Druzy crystal that hasn't been treated with chemicals or polished. They have an iridescent, sparkly sheen to them which is mesmerizing when the sun hits them. Wearing Druzy stones are great for relaxation and stress-relief. They are used quite often in group meditation and to harmonize groups of people.

Metaphysical meaning of Lapis Lazuli:
Lapis Lazuli is one of my favorites. Not just because it's deep blue, vivid color which is like the ocean, but because of its properties. It is a powerful protector and has been one of the most prized semi-precious stones since antiquity. Its historical use was to protect against spirits of darkness, its color being that of the heavens. The most fascinating use of Lapis is to ward off psychic attacks. It assists with spiritual awakening and mental clarity.
