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%.
More About the Symbol of the Dragonfly
Dragonflies are very ancient creatures and have been around nearly 200 million years. Their bodies and wings are often covered in beautiful jewel-like hues of green, blue, purple etc. This colouring reminds us of the lesson that as we age our true inner colours come through in a beautiful way.
They have fantastic movement and manoeuvrability in the air and can fly up to 30mph. They spend their early life in water then as they mature and start to fly live the next part of their life in the air. Part of their lesson can be to bring clarity (air) to something emotionally (water) complex. Likewise they can also help bring balance to situations that feel very rational and need some emotion.
Dragonflies are connected with light. Their many colours are actually often caused by how their body and skin refracts and reflects light rather than the actual pigments in their skin. They have been connected with mysticism and magic. In Japan they are often associated with light and joy.
In summary, you may wish to have near you the medicine of dragonfly if you are seeking balance between your emotions and thoughts and if you wish to be reminded of the eternal existence of all things and that all that exists (including us) is light.
