Summer Solstice Sunstone Inspirations June 20, 2017 11:11

Happy Summer Solstice!

 The Summer Solstice takes place today, June 20th, if you are in the Western time zones and tomorrow, June 21st for most parts of the world.  According to the Farmer's Almenac, "The timing of the solstice is not based on a specific calendar date and time.  It depends on when the Sun reaches its northernmost point from the equator.  The word solstice is from the Latin solstitium, from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop), reflecting the fact that the Sun appears to stop at this time."  I made these two Sunstone creations in honor of the Summer Solstice.

Sunstone is linked to the sun and embodies its warmth and light, bestowing joy and good luck to the wearer.  Sunstone is associated with the Sacral Chakra and is known as the Stone of Leadership. It increases confidence and personal power and helps bring mental clarity. It helps stabilize the emotions and inspires passion and romance. It's also known as a Stone of Freedom and encourages independence, originality and individuality.
