More About the Symbol of a Star
When many of us in the west think of the star as a symbol the first one that comes to mind is the star that announced to the wise men the birth of Jesus Christ. As such we connect the star with hope and prophecy and we begin its association through countless civilisations with mysticism, cosmic forces and universal mystery. The Mayans and Egyptians are known to have mirrored star constellations in the arrangement of their pyramids and some Native American tribes see the stars as the souls of their ancestors watching over them.
The star is a symbol of something much greater than ourselves because it has a connection with the very foundation of life, with the very beginnings of the universe, and how creation actually started. The mystery lies in how light came from darkness. In many traditions there was a blackness, a void, and from this void creation sprang. Stars and suns are widely seen to be part of this moment. The star signals a belief in the ability of something to come from nothing - a belief in miracles. A star is like saying 'yes' to life. It is like a positive affirmation, saying that you are always open to the unexpected.
More About Lead Crystal
Lead crystals (sometimes referred to as “crystal” or “leaded glass”) reflect light in wondrous ways, often creating rainbows and sparkles on the wall when the light hits them just right. They are great for hanging in windows or anywhere the light can get to them. Many hang them up to bring more light into their lives and make their surroundings magical. Hanging crystals such as these are termed 'bright objects' in feng shui bringing positive energy into a house and can be hung in spaces that need "energising".
Lead crystal is manufactured by adding lead oxide to molten glass. It is then machine cut into shapes. The higher the lead content the greater the “refractive index”, or in other words, the greater the sparkle. As the lead content goes up it becomes harder to form the crystal and therefore the price for higher lead content also tends to be higher. The maximum lead content is about 35%.

When our chakras are healthy and glowing strongly we feel good. By having about us or using chakra products, wearing chakra jewellery or using chakra stones in healing we are giving focus to this state of balance. If we have good intention we may draw situations to us that help us to change and help our chakras to find or remain in balance.
