PEARLS - Cleopatra is said to have served wine with ground pearls in it to her more important guests. While I love to wear them, I'm not sure I'm ready to drink them but this tid-bit was much better than ... Lucifer is said to have broken his teeth because of his craving for pearls. (probably best not to look further into that one) I do know, Pearls really are not a stone, they are considered part of the marine animal kingdom. I do use them often in my jewelry and so I have added them to this list. Pearls promote wisdom and contentment through life, well on into old age. They reduce allergies and can alleviate migraines and chronic headaches. Pearls should be worn directly on the skin. (do not let them come in contact with perfume or makeup) When not worn, they should be stored in the dark. To cleanse them; place on dry sea salt over night, then recharge by placing them in and oyster shell.
